This somewhat older HIE is just off the 401. It is a short drive to downtown Toronto when the traffic is light. Upon check in we were acknowledged as platinum IHG, and given a large two queen room on the main level. The room was pretty standard mid range hotel style. Quite clean, with firm beds and an interesting brick...

Was here for only one night while in Toronto. As a Spire Elite with IHG I always like to see up to what level the hotel will accomodate me when something comes up. On this one somehow my reservation was for a two queen non-smoking room and somehow my IHG reservation sent it as a smoking room (who knew there...

So this place is OK when it comes to cleanliness however there is a smell in the hotel that needs to be explained. It almost smells like a chemical is been put down to cover up a musty odor and is starting to wear off. Breakfast is bare minimum when it comes to what you expected a holiday in express...

Nine rooms for part of a lacrosse team. It's clean, the AC worked on a very hot weekend, the beds were firm and the check in-out was fast and accurate. Breakfast was the usual for an HIE, it's very convenient to the 401 and Scarborough Town Centre. There is no fridge in the room but I think that's standard for...

We booked our rooms through the central reservation system and were told that because we wanted 2 queens in one of the rooms, we had to pay a higher fee than the room with a king, and we agreed to that.

Stayed 1 night and wouldn't mind staying longer. Was met by Leah with a beautiful smile and professional courtesy. Room was ready before the expected time and the cleaning lady came by to make sure the room had been well prepared.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
