I left out the poorly rated hotels (less than a 7/10) and the expensive 5 and 4 stars, which are all excellent choices if you have the money to stay at these hotels. Yorkville is a posh area with exclusive shopping, but not everyone can pay upwards of $350 per night for a hotel room. Thankfully, there's some hotels that are both affordable for most folks and well rated close to the Casa Loma museum.

This smoke-free hotel is about a 5-minute drive to Casa Loma and it produces a lot of happy guests. The staff provide outstanding and professional service, correcting any problem that may arise. Guests like the location of the hotel which is near to shopping, restaurants and a subway station. Luxury amenities and linens, well-kept and spacious rooms, comfy beds and delicious food on-site are some of the recent online comments found for this hotel. The most expensive of my picks on the day I compared at $153 is only the rate without parking or Wi-Fi, which are both extra. Wi-Fi costs vary depending upon usage, but the daily rate is $11, and self-parking is $25 while valet parking is $35. Hotel amenities include restaurant and lounge (rooftop patio), lap pool and fitness centre, sauna, steam and massage.

Some rooms are renovated and can be requested at the time of booking. They have an on-site restaurant and lounge, plus a small fitness room. Guests seemed to think it offered good value, clean accommodation and friendly staff in an excellent location. Casa Loma can be reached in 5 minutes by car from this hotel.
