I have stayed at the holiday Inn express in Markham approx.30 nights within the last 10 week period. I plan on staying over 30 more nights in the next 3 months so I have no issues :-) Keep up the great work.

The staff were absolutely wonderful. Happy to help and pleasant to talk to. We stayed with our 2 year old and 5 month old and would definitely stay at this location again. Only 1/2 hour to Science Centre and 1/2 hour to zoo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TOvisitDec2013 Front desk staff are fantastic
I've stayed at a couple different hotels in the area, but this Holiday Inn Express is my first choice. The staff here are a major reason for this. They are knowledgeable and very helpful (especially when I locked myself out of my room)!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RubinV Good location and new facility
I chose this location because its outside Toronto but within 20 mins from Downtown Toronto and 25 mins from airport via car. We had relatives north of this location and it was easy to drive back and forth.
Hotel is modern and pleasant. It is one of the better HIE. Only issue I had was no special acknowledgement for IHG members. The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. One assisted me with directions for nearby eats.
Wifi was easy to connect (we had 4 devices) and was speedy. The pool appeared to be very popular as many were using it. I used the business center to print boarding passes.
Suggestions for local shopping/sites. Note: GPS recommends taking Rt 407 which is a toll road for many trips. I took highway 7 which runs parallel.
* INATEI JAPANESE CUISINE - across the Street. Excellent Japanese food. I was very impressed.
* Vaughan (20-25 mins NW) - Amusement park. Also Outlet shopping/mall which has a LegoLand Discovery Centre. This
* East Pearce St to E Beaver Creek Road - (3 mins East) are has movie theater and a slew of restaurants - many types of cuisines.
* Shopping Center (10 mins North on Leslie, West on Major Mackenzie Dr off of Bayview Ave) - Chain restaurants McD, Burger King and Pizza Hut plus some Asian restaurants including good Malaysian place. Walmart and Electronics store as well.
* Ripley's Aquarium - (25 mins South) - Impressive and new aquarium. Near CNN Tower. Little pricey and crowded. Parking is a challenge.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay that does not revolve solely around downtown Toronto.

Me and my friends families stay for two nights for Easter Spring break! ( 04/19 to 04/21) Overall were great but our rooms were located next to the elevator ( rm 504 & 604). We heard the MACHINE up and down til 1am in the morning! Front desk told us the hotel were full booked. We made the reservation and paid on March 10! Staffs that work in the Breakfast were friendly and Great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJH2014 Good Holiday Inn - rooms could be Quieter
Overall a great hotel.Only complaint I had was I could hear everything in the next room, people talking, their tv,
As compared to other holiday Inns acrouss the US and Canada I found this was easier to hear the others visitors.The shower was to me very loud from the next room.Kind of a big deal if you want to sleep later than the people in the next room.
Other that that the property was very clean and well kept and staff was great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJH2014 Clean Hotel - rooms need more soundproofing
Only complaint was you can hear the guests in the next room.
I could easily hear the TV, people talking etc...well into the night till they finally went to bed.
The shower running in the next room was also very loud and annoying if you are still trying to sleep.
I guess the walls are thinner that older hotels?
Website says there is a gift shop but when we asked about it we were told there is no gift shop.Granted not a big deal but shouldent be listed if there isnt one.
Hotel itself was great.Was clean and staff was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bball Mom Excellent staff
Thanks to the excellent check-in staff who quickly righted an error in our reservation. Room was standard Holiday Inn and very clean and quiet. Our only request would be to turn on the heat in the indoor pool, especially since it was a weekend and plenty of families were interested in using the pool-but it was cooler than tepid bathwater!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kj6151 Lovely hotel (but cold pool)
We liked this hotel very much - it was clean, the front desk staff were extremely friendly, and the rooms were nice. Our only comment would be that the pool was so cold my children wouldn't swim, which they were very excited to do. Normally, they will swim in any temperature but the pool was unusually cold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guitingguiting GREAT STAFF - GREAT HOTEL
It was a wonderful weekend with family/friends and our Team. Had an amazing stay at this Hotel.
I'd suggest that in our next visit we won't have to ask for extra towel - especially if you have specified when booking that there are 4 guests in the room.
Also, the hotel ran out of sausages during breakfast when they ought to know that weekend March 28th-30th would have been their busy weekend because of the tournament.
But overall, we had an amazing stay at Holiday Inn. Friendly staff, and most especially, big thank you to the Sales Manager, Karima.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room 413 Good place. Poor internet
It was hard to use email, let alone download or stream anything. If your going to offer wi fi. Make sure it's good enough for business travelers to use. Anything less is just plain frustrating.
Everything else was great! Room. Bed. Food.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by McDuck HIE Markham
Property was well maintained after a considerable snow fall, no issues in or out. Building was well maintained, clean and comfortable. Many dining choices located nearby, and easy access to highways to move about the GTA (other than horrendous traffic, and I'm a NY'er). What really set this property apart were the employees. My stay was extended due to bad weather in the states, and they made arrangements to accommodate me without hesitation. For that reason alone, I would book again without doubt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JackiePackieRoute34 Visiting Toronto for weekend, I stayed smart!
I am going to make this sweet and short. The reason why I stayed @ holiday inn, is because of my previous dealings with Holiday Inn all over the east coast in the US, as well as internationally.
I eventually became a club member because having been loyal tot hem I thought it was only natural to sign up for membership.
The price for what you get and location I think is a factor people in Holiday Inn probably think about because it is never too far from business centers, travel/fun areas I've wanted to see. For that I immensely happy.
As for why I stayed in the Markham area was because I have friends who live in the York/Richmond Hills area. Normally I crash on their couch, but this time their places were full and the couch was not available, so I opted for Holiday Inn.
Nothing (in terms of location) was ever out of reach, and most importantly the staff of this Markham location was perhaps the best service I have ever encountered with Holiday Inn. The front staff by the name of Nureen, she deserves some sort of employee award because that extra courtesy and help she gave me and other visitors of this hotel who check in and out I think is what makes this place a charm.
My only comment for improvement is that this Holiday Inn provide guests some form of room slippers to wear around. Having visited winter, your shoes do get dirty from all the snow and whatever debri one may pick up walking around. Of course I take off my shoes but the snow does eventually melt and a puddle does eventually collect, which I can say is not beneficial for my stay nor is it beneficial for Holiday Inn in the long run (when countless guests who have the same concern as me) when they have to repair any damage from wear and tear of the weather factors being brought into their rooms/facilities.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jendzi86 Clean but flawed
I stayed here recently for a week. I found the hotel to be clean welcoming and friendly, however had some issues with the room.
Getting up to shower before work i found that i had luke warm water to cold water at least 3 mornings. I also had issues with the television. It continually had to be re-set before use and sometimes during use as the screen would go blank. I also found that the pool was closed for the majority of my stay which was a little disappointing.
Overall had these things been rectified this would be a lovely place to stay.
