Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Bloor Yorkville Toronto
I stayed here for 2 nights in December of 2004. The hotel was fine except none of the 3 ice or soda machines were working. The food in the bar downstairs is also not so good, they did have good drink specials though. The location is great, and I would definatley stay there again.
Great location and price
Stayed here October 2004. Great location near subway, restaurantsand museums. Basic accomodation but clean and tidy and good service from staff.
An excellent place to stay
This is the place to stay if you want convenient and inexpensive, and don't particularly care about charm. I stayed here a few days in early August, 2004 for a trip to a conference. It is far less expensive than the conference hotels downtown. Using the subway practically right next door to this hotel, I could get downtown in 15 minutes (Toronto's subway system is fantastic, by the way). The room was nothing fancy (perhaps a bit bland), but it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The neighborhood is fairly residential and borders the University of Toronto. Plenty of restaurants within a few blocks, though not a great variety in the food. There is a grocery store across the street, an Internet cafe about 3 blocks away, and for independent cinema buffs there is a great movie theater nearby as well. The staff were always friendly. Ask them how to get to the airport on public transportation - it's very easy. You just go to the end of one of the subway lines and catch a bus that leaves every half hour directly for the airport. A cab ride will cost you much more, and not get you to the airport much faster.
Very good quality
We stayed at this hotel for 10 days at the end of September 2004. We found it excellent value for money. The service we got was excellent, especially the reception staff who were very helpful. The hotel was clean and we had fresh linen and towels every day. The hotel is situated in a very good location, central for everything and the subway just around the corner at St George St. From there you can access all parts of Toronto via the subway, which is cheap and also clean. We will definately stay at Quality Hotel Midtown on our next visit.
Good hotel, Great location
I stayed at this hotel on my 2nd trip to Toronto, in 2002, it was an excellent choice. The hotel rates were very affordable and the rooms comfortable and clean. The little coffee shop in the front of the building offers good food and fabulous desserts at very affordable prices. But oh, the Location!! The hotel is situated in The Annex - practically smack-dab in the middle of the University of Toronto campus. the neighborhood is a wonderful mix of the residential, the retail and the academic. The fabulous Bata Shoe Museum is directly across the street, the Royal Ontario Museum is 4 blocks away and for serious shoppers, the Rodeo Drive of TO - Avenue Road is practically steps away. There are cool restaurants for every price range and something to see and do around every corner.
I stayed here in for 4 nights mid July 2004. The prices were very good for downtown Toronto. Basically this is your no nonsense type of hotel. There is no pool or wieght room but it is cheap and the rooms are clean. The rooms are standard size, nothing flashy but comfortable. I would definetly reccommend this hotel to others!! The price is very good and the best part is the subway station is across the street. The area was also very nice and quite safe. Definetly worth looking into if your staying in Toronto!
Ideal location; Safe area for families; Value for money
My husband and I, along with my 13-year old nephew, just got back from a 2-week vacation in Toronto and we chose the Quality Hotel Midtown because of its ideal location to shops and restaurants and value for money (USD $75 per night for two double beds from Hotels.com). I only gave it 3 stars because it's not the Ritz or Hyatt but it does have just about everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one, except there is no bell man so you are responsible for taking up and bringing down your luggage (carts are available in lobby).
Our room had personal voicemail, ice-cold A/C which is a must for Toronto in July, and it was cleaned every day by the maid service (bed made, clean towels, trash taken out). Every morning we found a newspaper outside our door which helped us plan our day and decide what movie we wanted to see at the nearby cinema. Every morning on the way out we stopped by one of two lobby restaurants for continental breakfast or hot chocolate and a pastry. Very good!
The area is safe too with people walking the street all hours of the night. We found everything we wanted to do/see nearby. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. There were some homeless people on the street but they were kind and didn't harass us.
Great price for D'town...i'd stay there again
Found this hotel while looking for a cheap stay in toronto. It totalled $143 canadian per night for queen bedroom. Bed & bathroom were very clean and well supplied. The couch and chair did however have many coffee stains all over them..kind of gross :( The stay was very nice and it even had underground parking for $13 per day, which is dirt cheap in d'town. It is about 1 minute walk from the subway and right next to a whole bunch of stuff to do. If you are interested in a great place to hang out...check out Madisons Pub (2 streets west of the hotel on Madison Ave). This place can hold over 3000 people and has something for every type of person. Downstairs is a quiet lounge with tvs, backyard patios with DJ, bar with piano player, outdoor upstair party patio and another bar with HUGE tables and an amazing acoustic guitar player.
In other words, this is a cheap & clean way to stay in downtown...i will go back again.
Enjoyed my stay
Good stay, great value, good people and great location very close to all the entertainment, food and fun. Will recommend anytime. Definitely great value.
Can't Go Wrong
What you'd expect...quiet, clean, comfortable, nothing flashy...good location in midtown Toronto. Parking in garage below. Easy in/out. Good for families.

... no regrets. We came down the same way we went up, and walked the 4 k's or so back to Leslieville. That night we had a beautiful home cooked meal, and headed to be early, as I had an early start the next morning - Niagra Falls day!!! I have to say though, before we continue, that even though I'd only spent a day and a bit there, I already had a sense that Toronto was a city I could really, really like. I know I only saw a small part of it, and I haven't experienced ...
... grapes. It is picked and pressed when the temperature has been lower than -8 degs for longer than 72 hours. They pick by hand and then press the grapes outside so they stay frozen. It takes up to 10 times more grapes to make ice wine than standard wine. It's a dessert wine and very sweet but I quite liked it - you would need a very small glass though! Back on the bus for the two hour trip back to Toronto. The Blue Jays were playing and were on a ...

He clearly knew I was lying but I had to stick with the lie as he questioned us about why we didn't have a form. Wills then said we didn't have a form and asked what we had to do. In the most patronising manner possible he told us we should have filled out a form and we would need to take one and go to the back of the queue. He would ...

... we went out for a walk with Miguel and Dharshini around the hotel. The hotel was located close to the angel de la independence, on paseo de la Reforma, so very close to all. The area was a bit of a gay district, and and we ended up eating at VIPs. I liked the soup de tortillas and enfrijoladas I had. We then walked a bit more and went to La Cantina for a drink and for some live music. It was a good tigres del norte -like music. Back to the ...
