Vaughan near IKEA and the back road to the mall...
Posted Jan 8, 2017
Do NOT pay for parking at the machines! It's included for hotel guests!
Check in was fine, though there was no offer to return the money paid at the meter.
The room was pretty standard, although NO CARPETING! "Hardwood" vinyl throughout, which was a little cool until the room heat caught up.
Pool was chilly but fun with the waterslide. Lots of towels available, and an attendant for the slide. Seems like they kind of do their own thing, each attendant was different in handling the slide riders.
The restaurant was good for breakfast, with custom eggs, pastries, dry cereal and toast.
Getting in and out of the place in heavy traffic is tough, borderline dangerous. People line up in oncoming lanes to make the left turn onto hwy 7, which blocks the left turn across traffic into the only hotel entrance. Ditto coming out, good luck making a left turn across that traffic to get to IKEA, D&B's or the restaurant complex. Turn right out of the hotel and it's a straight shot, about 10 minutes to Vaughan Mills mall.
Overall, the hotel was good. The traffic, well, it's Toronto. Give yourself extra time to get anywhere!
