Her appearance was very friendly, professional looking young lady, very polite. She has a very nice smile. I asked the nearest Tim Hortons and seems like she is knowledgeable about the hotel surroundings which should be recommended to a counter staff I think...

This is a very easy and comfortable hotel that makes it so easy to settle in. Free parking, friendly service and comfortable and casual rooms are the strengths of this hotel. It is located in a good location between downtown and the fun, restaurant and bar filled 17th Ave. I have always been treated so well, and have always enjoyed... More

Can't think of anything thats not right about the hotel. The location is right downtown, they have sufficient parking including an underground secured area, the breakfast has several options and the beds were very comfortable. We brought in an extra child over what we had booked and the staff quickly gave us a rolling bed for no charge, although the... More

On arrival we were allocated a standard room and on further enquiry found their accessible room(s) suitable... More

We have stayed here before. Things have gone down hill. The room had a smell. Décor needs updating. Windows let in all the traffic noise. The breakfast room was not clean. The food selection and quality was bad. For the price they charge of $ 190.00 a night you think the food would be better and you would not have... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room in 6th floor was spacious, clean and also a kitchnette was included (could need an update). They do offer an underground parking (first come first serve) and having more parkings at the back of the hotel (parking is free of charge). The free breakfast was good from our perspective, but we didn't... More

We have now stayed at this hotel 3 times. Always more than satisfied. Originally booked through hotwire and was dissapointed we weren't closer to downtown. But... on our arrival they upgraded our suite. The rooms are updated, super clean, comfy beds, great views and the location was close to everything we needed. Only a short walk to c-train. The staff... More
