There are two entrances to the Holiday Inn on Yorkdale:

(1) through a car dealership (watch out for the speed bumps!) on the west side of Dufferin Street, south of the 401, and

(2) through the parking lot on the south side of Yorkdale Road, west of Dufferin Street. If you are arriving on the 401 from the west, exit the 401 at Dufferin St. and use the car dealership entrance, located at street lights at the bottom of the exit ramp on the right.

If you are arriving on the 401 from the east, exit the 401 to the Allen Road southbound, and exit the Allen Road to Yorkdale Road on the right.

Proceed along Yorkdale road which crosses Dufferin at which point you may either turn left and use the car dealership entrance on the right (beyond the 401 underpass), or alternately proceed past Dufferin and use the parking lot entrance off of Yorkdale road on the left (beyond a different 401 underpass).
