So, this is our third year in a row to stay here. We have tried several other hotels during this time, and this is our favorite. The staff is always super friendly at check-in. I love the bath products they have in the rooms, Aveda. The beds and linens are very comfortable. They have a small empty mini fridge in... More

All of the previous reviews capture the qualities of this property. The service from the hotel staff throughout the hotel is stellar. The views if you book harbourside are spectacular. I would compare this property with more boutique hotel experiences. But the property itself lacks a standout quality that I've experienced at other boutique hotels from the standpoint of the...

The winter Olympic flame is just around the corner from this hotel. Very well decorated this time of the year. About the hotel. Very clean and neat/nice. Staff and their customer service was exceptional. We had the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was delicious and put together well. Great service there as well. The room(s) were clean and...

This hotel exceeded every expectation! The staff was the friendliest we've ever come across in our travels. Without exception each staff member was smiling, engaging and helpful. We drove our electric car and the staff made special arrangements for us to plug it in. When we arrived the one spot with an outlet was coned off and reserved just for... More

A girlfriend booked this for my surprise 50th birthday party and we stayed here one night. They upgraded us to a Harbour view room with an awesome view of our beautiful city!! It was nice facing the harbour, no crazy street noise!! The staff were great! especially the front desk clerk who checked us in seemlessly. Convenient reasonable underground parking.... More

The staff is excellent, the lobby is nice. This is an old Hotel and the rooms show it. The rooms are small and very dated. Stains on the old chase lounge, holes in the curtains, water damage stains in the bathroom. Some updates have been done but.... Furniture still designed for CRT television, the flat screen that replaced it is... More

2ourest, It’s always nice to see feedback starting with “the staff is excellent”. Thank you for recognizing our team, always appreciated. As for the state of your room I am sorry to see the experience you described, not typical for our hotel I can assure you. I have asked our housekeeping team to thoroughly inspect all chase lounge and curtains... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in September. It was a perfect stay all around. The staff at the property are phenomenal. Especially the front desk. We stayed in a bay facing room and the views were great. The breakfast buffet is very good. Lots of fresh fruit and local cheese and smoked salmon. The location of the property... More

Right on the water and a great location - spend the money for a room overlooking the harbour. Very comfortable rooms - not huge but big enough. The ground floor layout is a little confusing but the restaurant at the back of the lobby, once you find it, is quite good. Overall a recommend.

Stayed here for three days and don't have any complaints at all! The room was spacious, clean, nicely decorated and the cleaning staff was friendly. Room service was also great. They have a bar and small restaurant. The Breakfast Buffett was a little expensive. You would do better to order directly from the menu for breakfast.
