Those expecting Howard Johnson’s in Aurora will keep blocks of rooms until one week prior to June 14, 2014 as claimed on Cardinal Carter’s website here:
http://cch.ycdsb.ca/Reunion25/ may be in for a suprise.
When passing it today the Hotel’s parking lot was roped off:
Although the Error Banner includes it as an active business listing:
http://www.yorkregion.com/directory/aurora-on/convention-services-facilities/howard-johnson-hotel-1713073/ it no longer appears among the Howard Johnsonlocations on their website.
Their phone number is no longer in service.
After talking with someone onsite apparently it is closed for renovations while the owner decides what direction to take, possibilities may be to exit the hotel business in favor of senior housing.
I look forward to the redevelopment of this site as Howard Johnson’s has been a
blight on Aurora for far too long.
My experience from 2010, which I posted on here:
