In 2009 we were "Zoomed", when Zoom Airlines went bust after we had boarded our aircraft in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
A long story, but we had to get out of Halifax to a hub airport in order to find a flight back to the UK. We succeeded with a Westjet flight to Toronto, where we were able to book a room at the Holiday Inn (West) - an excellent hotel, where the staff were so helpful to us.
Having not realised there were 2 Holiday Inns at Toronto Airport, we asked the travel agent through whom we were arranging our holiday to Alberta and BC, to book the Holiday Inn for our overnight stay, finding on arrival that this was at the older, low rise (3 storey) Holiday Inn East.
No worries, the hotel had recently been refurbished and the staff were just as helpful as they had been at the Holiday Inn West.
However, what makes the Holiday Inn stand out is the exceptionally comfortable beds/pillows - certainly the most comfortable we had throughout our holiday in 8 hotels, albeit closely followed by the Delta Bow Valley Hotel in Calgary, which is an excellent upmarket resort/business hotel.
The clean rooms, quiet air-conditioning (about 28c outside) and welcoming on-site restaurant at the Holiday Inn East, were also very much appreciated - thank you.
