Since Yorkville is known as a luxurious neighbourhood, luxury hotels should almost be expected. Perhaps you’ve already heard of some of the hotels that are situated in Yorkville, Toronto, like Park Hyatt Hotel, The Hazelton Hotel, Four Seasons Hotel, and W Hotel (opening in July 2022), among others. There are also condominiums in the area, like the Yorkville Plaza, in which both long-/short-term residents live because, while there are definitely luxurious hotels, sometimes short-term rentals are just the better option.
Not only are short-term rentals generally cheaper than hotels, which means you can live in them for longer than hotels at the same price, they also have amenities on top of the core components that make up a hotel room. For instance, like a hotel room, short-term rentals have a bedroom and a bathroom, however they also have a small kitchen which makes longer stays much more convenient.
