Though it’s been a few months since I stayed here, I just happened to be reading some of the other reviews and am baffled by what people are expecting when they make a reservation at this hotel. So I felt compelled to put in my...More
Stayed for ten nights while catching some baseball. Located in Yorkville so much quieter than the downtown hotels, rooms are clean if a little basic and dated. Free breakfast of pastries, cereals, coffee, tea and juices was welcome and coffee available in the lobby 24/7...More

Response from Nancy C, General Manager at Howard Johnson Hotel Toronto YorkvilleResponded 11 July 2017
Thank you for your wonderful comments. So happy to hear you enjoyed your 10 night stay with us. We agree....the Howard Johnson is a quiet location with many amenities within walking distance. I will be sure to share your review with Ali and the rest...More
The title represents my first reaction. Loved the location, near the ROM and Gardiner and Yorkville. Room was large, clean enough and very comfortable for sleeping. Very quiet, facing away from the street. No view, other than a brick wall (good place for a mural...More
This is going to be fun. The first thing I want to address are all the "positive" reviews of this hotel. I mean one would have to be truly immune to reality in order to describe this place as "excellent". Really?? I truly believe the...More

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
