This location may become a favourite for Plane Spotters / Avgeeks as it is literally at the end of runways 24L/R at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport! The hotel will have 120 rooms, 23 of which are suites and features an indoor heated pool. As with all HI Express locations this hotel will provide the Express Start Breakfast which includes a full hot breakfast and a selection of cold items as well.

This hotel is not a new build but a new addition to IHG Hotels. It used to be a Howard Johnson and has been renovated prior to joining IHG. This location is now open and is situated on the North side of Victoria with easy access to the Patricia Bay Highway. The Elk Lake Inn & Suites features rooms with one king or two queens, has an outdoor pool and guests can dine at The Lakes Restaurant.

Wrapping it up

2023 is shaping up to be another good year for new IHG hotels in Canada. With 11 locations planned in three provinces they look to surpass 200 locations nationwide this year. This should help them retain their spot as the second largest major hotel chain in Canada after Marriott and staying slightly ahead of Hilton.
