Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RM850 Good but not great
The staff's were overall the best part of the hotel. even had one staff ran to the store for me, when I didn't even ask for him to go, I was going to do it myself lol. The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are comfortable but the only bad thing is that you have to pay to use the microwave and there is no refrigerator. Other then that pretty go hotel .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Theatre enthusiast Our favorite for great service, friendliness, and value
We spend most of our vacations in Toronto seeing theatre, and we find the Holiday Inn Bloor-Yorkville ideal in so many ways. During the Fringe Festival, it's pretty central. It's also conveniently located to great and affordable restaurants ( and Greg's Ice Cream!), and easy walking distance from museums, the University of Toronto, and reasonable as well as high-end shopping!
The staff never fail to greet us warmly, seem to remember us from trip to trip, and are willing to help out if we need something special (for example, a pair of scissors to cut the labels off new clothes). I feel that we are visiting friends when we stay here.
The beds are extremely comfortable, and the cleaning staff efficient and courteous.
I didn't mean to downgrade the food and beverage, since I have never used this service, but once I had touched the screen it wouldn't let me say "does not apply". ( might want to add this category )
In short, I recommend the Holiday Inn Bloor Yorkville, if you want an affordable, pleasant experience, in a central downtown location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jamieson27 did not enjoy my stay
we were staying here to attend a wedding at the u of t and this was one of the hotels chosen by the bride and groom. SO we figured it must be okay.
When we arrived at the hotel we were given a key to the wrong room and walked in on other people in that room. When we walked back down the lobby we didnt even get an apology. just given another room key. there was no one to help us with our bags.
When we got to our room the room smelled horrible and the bathroom spelt of urine.
We later found blood on the curtains and the bathroom door.
My mom also stayed at the hotel that night and her room (with two beds) was given to someone else so someone staying in her room had to sleep on a chair (she was offered no compensation or a cot.. nothing.
Terrible overall experience

I have stayed here before and had a great stay again. The staff were willing to help whenever possible and made you feel like they were truly interested in making your stay as good as possible.
I will come back next time I am in Toronto!!

We were taken aback by the amount charged for overnight parking at the hotel. I think the charge for parking should be more clearly indicated,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimiWH I slept at the holiday inn!
We found the room at the hotel comfortable and affordable. It was clean and quiet and we certainly enjoyed our stay. We found the employees to be friendly and kind, treating us like family and ensuring we felt at home. They also were aware of points of interest and mass transit making our visit easier and allowing us to enjoy more of Toronto. The location of the hotel was ideal and it was so convenient, within walking distance to all the family fun that Toronto has to offer. We really would not want to stay at anywhere else as we found this place so wonderful and fulfilled our every need. It is part of our permanent vacation plans and we return to it at least four times a year from the states,. We don't feel like guests but consider it our Canadian home.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HatesGeneric Comfortable bed and usual service
This was a total generic experience. Absolutely nothing remarkable. no food options. No breakfast options or if there were, they were not made known to me. rooms are very generic - for about 20 years ago. About what one would expect from a Holiday Inn. No refrigerator in room and the bathroom supplies merely adequate. No attempt to create a unique or notable experience. The bar attached to the lobby was loud and full of obnoxious adolescents and bums. Nothing in any way sophisticated of tasteful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaveYYC Good location but......
The location of this property was excellent but the rooms were very dated and tired. There was space for a mini-fridge but you had to pay extra if you wanted one and also there were no in-room safe's. Connecting to the internet was near impossible as instructions were tricky and confusing. Front desk staff was no help with this. The pub/restaurant attached to the hotel was dirty with horrible washrooms, lousy staff and poor food. The bed was comfortable and the AC was efficient and the hotel was overall very quiet. At the end of the day though the price was fair for what it was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by getting away The rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable
The stay at the Holiday Inn on Bloor in Toronto was really pleasant. The only thing that I would like different, is that house keeping comes too early to clean the room and change bedding. Everything else is great and close to all shopping, restaurants, and parks.

Good Day .. I lived in Toronto for over 30 years and recently moved to Los angeles... I was back in Toronto for a family function and chose the hotel because of its location . I was very disappointed.. the hotel rooms are old and drab and I thought the price was ridiculous for what you got.. I had many many choices of where to stay and was not happy at all.. In fact I was quoted one rate and when I arrived, the rate was different.. I had been travelling and was tired and did not have the energy to fight.. also, I am the Senior VP of a large medical company and stay in many many many hotels a year... even a Quality Inn in Toledo Ohio was nicer.. .this is downtown Toronto .. not impressed... Thank you

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Antrod Clean, comfortable rooms
While customer service was lacking, not that they did not help, just felt that I was not a valued guest, the room was what you'd expect at a Holiday Inn...clean, comfortable but corporate looking and lacking any personality.
The location is great for anyone visiting Toronto for pleasure or business though.
While wireless internet was available and great for web browsing and email, any other use downloading and/or uploading files it was a bit slow.
Parking was available but I thought the additional daily cost was a bit too high.

Spent two nights at this hotel at the end of a holiday to Ontario to see family. Convenient for subway to get around the city. Good room, common areas would benefit from some attention(particularly carpet around the lift doors on (at least) several floors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mirlin Mostly satisfying
We stayed here for 4 nights and we'd do it again. It was unusually quiet and beds were excellent. One item created a problem: the hugely puffy pillows made for people with long necks. When I asked for smaller pillows, the two women at the desk smiled kindly with understanding, and shook their heads as though many people (especially women?) have been making such a request.(And they said they'd let me know if there were any smaller.) Option for guests? Take your own. Option for Manager? Please consider that some of us get "buried" using this size and we hurt if we use them .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toronto Fan Convenient location
Just returned home from a short stay in Toronto but must comment on the Holiday Inn and its convenience to tourist attractions (tour bus stop right across from hotel). The Royal Ontario Museum is just two blocks away. The staff was more than accommodating and our room was clean and comfortable.
There are many food options in the area (both expensive and inexpensive).
