“Amazing Location for the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

I stayed at the Yorkville Hojo and must admit, for $100 a night, it is a great price for the best location in this city. Bloor St and Avenue Road remind me of Madison and 5th in NYC. So many great high end stores. We had a shopping weekend and with all of the money we saved on our hotel we spent on clothing at the high end shops!
The hotel is definitely old but very clean with such kind staff. I was told that the hotel is under new management and that the rooms have all been deep cleaned and brought up to date. I enjoyed the breakfast that was included and of course the coffee. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Yorkville is my favorite part of Toronto and the Hojo is about $300 cheaper than other hotels in the area per night

Room Tip: east side of building is quiet.

The Room looks like it has not been renovated in my life time probably. Mold all over the shower ceiling a top of walls... bedding so old. TV very dated, smells. No hot water or water pressure - they really need to replace shower heads. 1 Towel was given for room so I had no towels and cold water... this place was booked for my brother's wedding for guests to stay and I would not ever recommend it to a distant friend. There is so many better places to stay in the area for the extra bucks

My daughter and I stayed at the Yorkville Howard Johnson during our visit to the Toronto Film Festival in September, 2011. The hotel was very conveniently located one block north of the Four Seasons Hotel so the location itself couldn't be better. The hotel is dated but they did provide a small continental breakfast consisting of muffins, croissants, tea, coffee and juice for only $144 per night. If you want to stay in Yorkville without the hugely inflated hotel prices, the Howard Johnson is your best bet. We will definitely return for next year's TIFF.

I stayed at the Howard Johnsons Yorkville hotel for 3 days on business. The room we stayed in needed some updating but it was clean. The staff was very friendly, especially the afternoon front desk person. The location of the hotel is fabulous and makes up for any deficiencies in the rooms! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Again, it needs some updating but it well worth the price I paid.

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the rooms that face the back parking lot and garden. It was a quiet room with n...

we usually stay downtown but we wanted to stay on the bloor st. subway line so we
got an excellent price per night.....but this was not up to the normal standards of a howard johnson hotel..a complete reno is reqired for this hotel..they try to keep it clean but
the carpets are horrible and filthy..the area around this hotel is awesome and seeing
yorkville is a must...the bed was comfortable but the noise from other guests kept waking
us up so the walls must be very thin...if they upgrade this hotel I would return and try
it again...hopefully they will invest in coffeemakers for each room....
