How things have changed. Howard Johnson used to have a reputation as a family-friendly chain with very little charm, but where you could always count on a good ole Canadian pancake breakfast. But this Ho-Jo is stylish and central. With 110 rooms over five floors, you have the choice of rooms from twin, double or queen right up to one-bedroom suites with sofabeds. The prices are beyond reasonable too, especially given the location. It's true Granville Street can be noisy, but the hotel is just beyond the concentration of bars and restaurants. Pancakes are still available at the Wing's Restaurant.
