Stayed here while attending the Scotch and Whiskey Show at the Casino last week. Very nice covered pedway that connects both, which is great for winter or nasty weather. The hotel is nicely decorated with a large lobby and open restaurant area. Rooms are a standard size (spacious) with comfortable bedding and clean. Staff is very pleasant and did their... More

I spent 5 nights in January at a conference here. The conference facilities were very good and suited the needs of participants very well. The restaurant made for a fun hub of activity for some late drinks after being out on the town for dinner and shows. Staff were always friendly and in good humour. The location - actually right...

My friend and I both over sixty-five found this hotel very spread out and lots of wide open spaces. I think they use it for conventions and trade shows, so I guess that is the purpose. For just a visitor, it does not come off as a friendly place really. It is modern but not warm. The bed was comfortable... More

I am pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. My apologies the heating/cooling in your room was inconsistent and wish we'd known so one of our Engineers could have tried to remedy the temperature for you. Our location next to the Historic Properties and connection to the enclosed pedway system are definitely attributes our customers appreciate.... More

We stayed here for one night in a standard King room. The room was large, updated, and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable with good quality linens. The room temperature control was easy to use and adjusted the room temperature quickly. Despite not having an "ocean-view" room, we did have an excellent partial view of the water. The bathroom...

I stayed in room 401 which had a great view of the Harbour. My room also had two chairs and a table, as well as a desk. This was great for business travel and would also be nice for personal travel. The hotel also has a Starbucks right in it which is convenient.

Stayed at the HMH last May (2014) while I attended a conference. Upon check-in I enquired as to the availability of a room that opened onto the pool deck. Staff indicated that others had been randomly assigned to those rooms already, but, as I was asking, and many had not checked in yet, they were kind enough to swap me... More
