Holiday Inn Bloor Yorkville

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

No fridge, nothing. Extremely simple. Did not feel like a Holiday Inn. Out of three elevators only one worked. Very cheap.

Very good experience. Location and convenience get high marks, though older mattresses and bedding weren't up to snuff.

On the plus side, great location. Otherwise, totally middle-of-the-road. Very soft bed -- much too soft. One light didn't work. I was there for four nights and elected not to say anything, to see if housekeeping would catch it. Nope.

It was clean and friendly and served its purpose of giving us a central location from which to explore Toronto for a couple of days. I would stay there again, no question. There was some street noise at the front of the hotel because it is right on Bloor Street. It didn't bother us but if you are a light sleeper who wants the window open, consider asking for a room at the back.

The hotel was great. Close to downtown and public transportation. Staff was friendly and room was clean. Reasonable option for Toronto.

On iur way back from the caribes, we spebt a night at the Holiday Inn Toronto Bloor- Yorkville hotel in Toronto. This hotell has the following Pros: -St George subway station at 2 minutes walk, .-in front of Bata shoe museum -a very short walking distance from the hotel to the Royal Ontario museum (Bloor st). -the University of Toronto, just a few steps. -Varsity stadium 3 minutes walk (Bloor st). -convenience stores , pharmacies, shoppers (drug mart), cafes & restaurants in Bloor st. Tim Hortons @ few steps in St George st in front of the st George subway station). -a few steps of the top 10 shopping destinations :Louis Vuitton, Prada, Cartier, Gucci, etc. -free wifi @ the reception & in your room. -free newspaper @ reception. - reasonable parking fee ($22) per day, including tax. Cons: -our room was standard (small). - did not have a small fridge & drinks( it will be nice to have even if you have to pay for it). - They put in your room a small bottle of water (you pay $3.50 for it). - Safety boxes are not in your room.

i loved the location and price. walking distance to great shopping and underground parking for only about 20$ was great.

we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. it was inexpensive and close to great shopping and restaurants. would stay here again! coffee makers in the room and a restaurant attached. parking is only $22.

I do like the location that is why I picked it up. Unfortunately, the reception staff is very low efficient and not helpful. They looked at you with stone face and talk to you like you were give a great favor to be there. Very disappointed about such a Holiday inn hotel. Bed sheet is a little bit dirty.

This was a staycation for my girlfriend and I. We walked into the tiny lobby through a dated faux pub and a NY Fries. The Guest Services Managers were friendly enough but informed us that there was no early check in upon our 12:30 arrival. He kindly allowed us to drop our bags and we went out for a coffee to return around two o'clock. We found our way to our room. Standard hotel fare. Muted tones, 15 year old decor, and a funky smell in the room. We couldn't open the window because the view was of the garbage bins and recycling. I asked my GF if we should switch rooms but I ran the bathroom fan for a while and it aired out. I feel for this price there should be a safe and a small fridge. If there was one it was well hidden. In this area there is no such thing as a cheap hotel room. And this is only marginally cheaper than much fancier hotel rooms down the road. I should have ponied up the extra 50 buck to go to one of them. For what you get this is one expensive Holiday Inn.

I recently did a weekend stay in Toronto for the weekend. This hotel was decent. Parking wasn't included and costs $22 per night. There is a bar attached to the hotel which was good.

Spent Victoria day long weekend at the hotel. Found it good value, clean comfortable, and staff very accommodating. Excellent location, close to restaurants, shopping, U of T and tourist attractions. Used the fitness facility and equipment worked well. Next time in Toronto hope to stay there.

Room was very decent but pricey for what it was and parking is way out of wack

I had a 2 day business trip in Toronto and choose the Holiday Inn Bloor/Yorkville as my hotel based on its location to my meeting and the price. The staff and hotel more than exceeded my expectations, they were fantastic. Everyone was very accomodating starting from when I called on the day of my arrival and said I would need a late check in. I arrived late, very late, it was 2:00AM and I was treated as it if was 5:00PM. Their outstanding service continued until I checked out. The location was/is great as well, right near the University, the medical center and all that Yorkville has to offer from places to eat and drink along with shopping. Thank you for making my stay so nice.

Overall good experience with a perfect location for the purpose of the trip

Nice and relaxing. Staff willing to do what they can to make your stay enjoyable

Close to University of Toronto, ROM, Shoe Museum and plenty of good restaurants. Late check-in, complete non-smoking, small lobby, no cafe were a minus. Efficient internet access, nice staff.

The Holiday Inn leaves a lot to be desired. The pros are really the hotel staff and it's location. Staff for the most part are helpful, especially the cleaning staff. The required ID photocopying seemed a little overboard as we personally saw other guest checking in without the extra hassle. Can not say exactly was the motive, but the front desk was polite about doing it. The bedding was extremely uncomfortable and the bathroom required cleaning on the first night. The ultimate con is that there are numerous other nicer hotels in the local area, closer to shops and restaurants as well. Would highly recommend paying a little more for a nicer hotel.

I had to travel up to Toronto because of a family crisis. It actually was the worst time of my life...so I really appreciate the service and kindness the staff gave me. On my first night in, a hotel worker helped me find an extra charger....that really helped alleviate some of my stress during a horrible situation. The front desk offers extra toiletries if need be. The location of the hotel is fabulous. It is located on the hip Bloor street...if you walk down Bloor there are so many restaurants...bars....pubs....shops....and if you walk in the other direction there are all kinds of high class shopping places..like Prada, Coach, LV. The Bata Shoe Museum is across the street and the Royal Ontario Museum is a block away. The hotel is in the University of Toronto area. I enjoyed my hotel experience. The subway is nearby....in fact one of the elevators goes right down to the subway. The subway makes it easy to get around the city.

It's a great expereince!
