Tips For Staying In Yorkville

Why Yorkville?
Toronto's Yorkville district has long been a hub of culture and style for visitors and locals alike, as the centre of Canadian counterculture in the 1960s, to the Toronto International Film Festival's stomping ground. With several hotels in the area to choose from, travellers from all walks of life will easily find accommodations suited to their personal needs.

Perfectly Situated
Centrally located (about a 9-minute drive from Toronto's city centre), Yorkville is a popular destination for visitors planning to explore the many offerings of the city. Car and pedestrian travellers are easily accommodated, with all Yorkville-area hotels being within a 10-minute walk of Bay Subway Station and also within an 11-minute drive of the Gardiner Expressway. Parking ranges from $21 per night at the Comfort Hotel Downtown Toronto, to $45 per night at the Park Hyatt Toronto and InterContinental Hotel Yorkville Toronto.

All hotels are within easy walking distance of Bloor Street, which is considered Canada's version of Rodeo Drive. Bloor Street is known for its wide array of high-end shopping boutiques, such as Chanel, Gucci and Prada (to name a few). For those who prefer a less expensive shopping excursion, the Toronto Eaton Centre (Toronto's biggest shopping mall) is within an 18-minute trip via public transit of all Yorkville hotels.

Roll Out The Red Carpet
Although TIFF Headquarters were moved in 2007 from Yorkville to King St. (about a 20-minute trip via public transit), Yorkville is still considered the meeting place for many movie stars and Hollywood deal makers during the film festival. Why not treat yourself like a celebrity and get pampered at a five-star hotel? Several Yorkville hotels boast full-service spa and wellness centres, indoor pools and valet parking, such as the Four Seasons Toronto at Yorkville, the Hazelton Hotel and the Park Hyatt. The Park Hyatt also offers a spectacular rooftop lounge overlooking Toronto's skyline. A large selection of restaurants, bars and cafes can also be found in the area to aid in your celebrity-spotting and people-watching!

Budget Friendly
The great thing about Yorkville (and Toronto in general), is that there's something for everyone. If staying at a five-star hotel isn't your style (or in your budget), the Yorkville district offers less expensive hotels: the Comfort Hotel Downtown (which made our Editor's Picks for best value!) and the Holiday Inn Bloor Yorkville.

Even if you have a car, you can also save some money by using public transit, taxi, or even walking to explore the city. Parking, especially in downtown Toronto, can be costly, and driving downtown can be hectic and time consuming. Toronto is a city full of pedestrians at all times of the day and evening.

Toronto Landmarks
Toronto has much to offer in the way of activities, several of which are easily accessible when staying at a Yorkville hotel. The Royal Ontario Museum, the University of Toronto (St. George Campus) and the CN Tower can all be reached in under 20 minutes on foot or via public transit, while Toronto's Harbourfront can be found about a 15-minute drive away. And with the subway line and the Gardiner Expressway so close by, you're perfectly situated, whether you want to shop, wine and dine in Yorkville or explore Canada's most populous city.
