It seems that Holiday Inn has listed Holideals in Toronto just about every
weekend; they're announced early in the week for the following weekend at
http://www.holiday-inn.com . For my recent trip, I stayed at the H.I.
Select Mississauga, at an ordinary suburban highway junction with road
construction; I drove to the end of the subway line and bought a transit
pass for $7, avoiding parking woes for a day of sightseeing.. For $75
Cdn., I was given a suite on the Executive Floor (requiring a key card to
get there on the elevator). If you don't mind staying in the suburbs, you
might make a backup reservation someplace, then see if a deal like this
comes up for the weekend you're going.
