I was on my way to Toronto and after five hours on the road from Montreal I was tired of driving in the dark. As I arrived in Oshawa, a full 70 km from my final destination, I saw the holiday inn building from the highway. It looked inviting and I decided that I could end my driving now and drive the final hour in the morning.
It turned out to be a great strategy. This holiday inn Oshawa was impeccable. The pool was very impressive although I didn’t use it I didn't have time. Hotels frequently advertise pools that are usually substandard or out of use.
The room was immaculate. The continental breakfast buffet was fabulous. Complimentary Newspapers in the morning included USA Today and Globe and Mail. There was an office with free Internet, printer. This room was in need of ventilation, the only negative of the stay.
All in all very satisfactory stay. My only suggestion to all hotels is that I think they have gone too long with the standard room layout, bed in front of TV. Not everybody lies down and watches TV at home. I would like to see a comfortable corner set up near a window with a desk and computer so people could pass some time surfing the net or writing a report on the computer. Maybe set up satellite radio.
Nevertheless next time I go to Toronto I will chose this hotel.
