Very good location, lovely clean sheets/towels and friendly staff all positives, but the hotel is very worn, grubby carpet (you want to keep your shoes on) in desperate need of a refurb and an airing!!!

No value for money, I was given a room in the 8th floor. Room stinks, Bathroom/commode had stains, floor was not clean, overall maintenance of the floor and the room sucks. On top of all the room was over charged. I would never visit this place or never recommend this hotel. Only good thing about the hotel was the staff,... More

Booked the room expecting 2 queen size beds and confirmed over the phone, when we got to the hotel we had one queen size bed. We called the front desk to find out about moving to another room, the hotel was... More

For the price breakpoint (note other hotels around here charge $400-$2000 a night) this old lady of a place is in the heart of Yorkville (Gucci, Armani, Holt&Renfrew territory) and includes breakfast! Parking was $25 a night. The rooms are clean, lots of hot water, and a simple but adequate continental breakfast. Free newspapers were included. It is not fancy... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel one night after going to a spa and doing some shopping in downtown Toronto. The price was good as was the location, but we were very disappointed with the decor. The rooms could do with new blinds and carpet. The bathroom was clean and looked recently renovated. The beds were very comfortable.... More

Got a deal through Groupon for $75 a night. Considering its in the heart of Yorkville, right beside Hazelton Lanes, I thought I could not go wrong. The hotel is going to be closed within the next year in order to build a large condo/ hotel complex on the site. The staff was much more friendly and courteous than some... More

Thank you for your review. Glad to hear we exceeded your expectations and you found your accommodations to be quiet, comfortable and of great value for the area. Unfortunately, hotel parking is limited and often fills, but there are many lots in the surrounding area. As you mentioned, this hotel will undergo a major renovation/development in the near future so... More

To be on the safe side all 7 friends left all luggage and clothing behind. Since none of us wanted to contaminate next hotels and our own homes. And there non chalant attitude angered me even more. Never again will I stay at a Howard Johnson Hotel.
