Extremely comfortable beds, very nice views, staff were very welcoming even at 3:00 am. Older hotel that looked newly renovated. No air conditioning but the fan provided made the room comfortable. Did not eat at hotel but it looked impressive.

We arrived on a sunny Saturday afternoon and booked a suite for the night. It was beautifully set up and the king size bed was the most comfortable, I've ever slept on. Quiet balcony overlooking the harbour front was stunning. The salty air and the sound of a few boats and seagulls made it a great place to relax and... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by Prince Rupert itself and also the Crest Hotel. We arrived at lunchtime but our room was ready and after dumping our bags we headed for the restaurant. We secured a table which gave a good view over the harbour area -most tables did offer such a view! Our young waitress was delightfully bubbly and... More

Prince Rupert is a seafaring town at the end of the VIA rail line from Jasper. The Crest hotel appropriately sits on a crest between downtown and Cow Bay. The rooms are efficient and comfortable and have good views. The bar and restaurant provide excellent food (BC salmon and halibut in particular) and those at reception desk are friendly and... More

The top floor suites offer views, balconies and comfort. Just off the train from Jasper the hotel was a great chapter in our west coast adventure. The eagle swooped past while enjoying the great food on the deck. Service can be a bit slow at times, but the place fills with locals on a Friday night, adding to the energy... More

Strolled the 3 blocks from the bus station, across the Safeway lot, jaywalked the street and here it was, the Crest. Hmm… it did look like a Holiday Inn, in log cabin brown. I had watched the website video about the hotel history and maybe there was something more in there. Sure enough, first impressions were deceiving. The inside lobby... More

The Crest is the best hotel (by reputation) in Prince Rupert. I have stayed here 5 times over the past 18 months; each time for 2-night stays. I have found the hotel to be solid: I get a good night sleep, the noise is pretty good for a busy hotel and the restaurant and cafe have very good food. The... More

The hotel is being renovated but they don't tell you this until you arrive. The A/C is off and the cheap little fans do little to help. The staff seem indifferent to any concerns. The property is nicely located but the overall experience is, at best, average.

What a great place to have a bite to eat and have a drink on the deck over looking the harbour, just watching the world go by. We enjoyed our room, it had a comfy queen bed and a window seat, a great place to take in the harbour. The place could do with a face lift but overall it... More

Unfortunately while we were there for 4 days in June, construction work was being done right below our harbour view room to create a new retaining wall. This meant that if we wanted to be in our room between 9:00am and 5:00pm we were exposed us to the multiple noises of many power tools and trades persons calling to each... More
