Holiday Inn Toronto Bloor Yorkville
Ranked #79 of 138 Hotels in Toronto
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Have stayed here on several occasions. The location is the best thing about this hotel. The Subway is right next to hotel which makes getting around easy. You can walk east or west on Bloor to Yonge or Spadina, and there's plenty of retail, restaurants, and coffee shops. The front staff are okay, though one guy gives the impression he's better than his position! The cleaning staff are very efficient and polite. The Fox & Fiddle serves pub food - it's pretty average. Kayla the day time waitress is great! The evening waitress looks like she'd rather be someplace else!

Stayed: February 2014, travelled on business

Give it five stars for location but the restaurant rates only one star and the rooms are a little tired, especially the bathroom with its cracked fiberglass tub enclosure and the grimy top on the toilet tank. My room was otherwise very clean. The king size bed was too hard for my liking but there was a good variety of pillows in various firmness.
The 14th floor room was cold and it didn't seem to matter how high I cranked the thermostat – the temperature never budged. In their defense it was -15 and windy outside, but the hotel heating system couldn't keep up with that.
Housekeeping staff was friendly; front desk staff not so friendly but efficient.
The hotel was about what I would expect in its price range and the location is very convenient to Queen's Park, University of Toronto and the Royal Ontario Museum. Very close to the subway, too.

Room Tip: There are lots of better restaurant options just outside the hotel.

Rotten, dirty and stinky, outdated, terrible greasy food in the restaurant. Rooms small and stinky, carpets dirty, I was scared to step on them. Staff not helpful, not unpleasant but not helpful in any way. I would never stay here again and I would never recommend it. I was scared I would have bugs crawling on me all night. I was so sorry that I had booked in here for two days. The evening waitress was not pleasant either, didn't really seem to care about her customers or her job. The on,y good thing about this hotel was the Thai day waitress named Karla. She was a gem. My advice, find another hotel.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Dear Shelly L,

I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. We have been working with the restaurant franchisee to correct some of the issues that you may have experienced with them during your stay. It was rather unnerving that you viewed the overall hotel this way. As you can see from our other reviews that this is not common feedback. After further investigating your stay I was interested to learn that you had an issue with a hotel policy/procedure. I hope that didn’t taint your review?

I invite you to contact me directly at 416-968-0010 or cn312@whg.com if you wish to discuss this matter further.

Thank you,
Doug Read,
General Manager

This hotel was close to my Wedding venue and was convenient and had a good price. The staff was nice enough to give my husband and I a bottle of wine and box of cookies to congratulate us, as we did stay there the night after our wedding, and brough a lot of wedding guests to the hotel. Everyone was satisfied. Worth the money.

Room Tip: Perhaps get a King bed for comfort.

this Holiday Inn is at the higher end of overall Holiday Inns. The rooms are large and clean and comfortable. The main entrance is on the side of the building so one can avoid the traffic on busy Bloor street while getting into and out of cabs or other rides. The hotel is conveniently located to University of Toronto, CN tower and close to numerous dining places. There is a decent sized exercise facility well stocked with a variety of cardio gear.

Room Tip: definitely try to get a room above the 9th floor to be over the potential for street noise

I stayed here for three nights in January 2014 for a work-related trip.

Room: It was a pretty standard and generic 3+ star hotel room. Queen sized bed was comfortable. Bathroom was a decent size and the shower had good water pressure. There was a desk and office chair in the room as well as a separate lounging chair and ottoman. Walls between the rooms were exceptionally thin - bring earplugs. The room was clean and fit the bill for a short work-related trip.

Amenities: Free wifi was fast and strong and was high enough bandwidth for FaceTime video calls. Aside from that, the hotel is pretty no-frills. No reasonable option for breakfast in the hotel (a NY Fries on the ground floor was open for breakfast, but that just doesn't sound like a good idea to me). Take my advice and skip the bar/restaurant in the hotel - a drink there on a too cold to venture elsewhere night was a less than ideal experience.

Location: If you're visiting UofT, this location is perfect. It's also not too bad for a tourist visit to Toronto. You're 1 block from a subway station and there are a lot of great restaurant/bar options along Bloor West, especially for the budget minded.

Dear Halifaxns,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our hotel. We are pleased to hear that our facilities were suitable to your needs.

Aside from the New York Fries in the lobby the restaurant attached also serves a full breakfast between 7am-2pm. We are working with the franchisee of the Fox and Fiddle to fix some of the problems you may have encountered while there. Please also note that there are many breakfast options within a short walk from the hotel.

Thank you again for your review, on your next visit stop by the front desk to get more information about the local area.
