I just finished a lovely weekend at this hotel. I booked this hotel almost a month ago(and paid in full at that time). Upon arriving at 7:30pm, first we were told the available person couldn't help us, we would have to line up to check in because there was a 'note' on our account. Turns out they overbooked so the...

Good day Becca, I am quite happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. However, it seems that there were some elements of a rockier nature regarding the room type booked and inconveniences that were faced. Becca, I would be much obliged if you could send me an email to start up a dialogue. My address is gss.marriott2@gmail.com.... More

My son was invited to Queens University for a Medical School interview so I wanted to pick a nice hotel in close proximity to the University with a suite layout so he could have his own room and get a good night's rest before. As usual, I checked Tripadvisor and found this location to be well rated and had available... More

Hello there Murtle! It was certainly a busy weekend with the Queen's interviews falling at the same time as Kids for Kids hockey. Lots of great energy in the hotel! I'm very glad to see that we were able to provide for you exactly what you and your son needed. Thank you very much for your great review and I... More

We visited Kingston in late March/early April and picked the hotel based on the positive reviews. The waterfront area was still frozen but this didn't impact the views in any way and the proximity to restaurants and other areas of interest was fantastic. Very walkable! The breakfast was good, pool was nice. Gym was a bit small but all told... More

Good morning Dennis. I'm glad to see you enjoyed your Wintery visit (despite it being Spring) with us here in Kingston. But don't fret, the warmer weather is just around the corner! As you mentioned, we are extremely close to most of Kingston's best pubs and restaurants. In fact, as I was walking about town yesterday, I even saw a... More

My husband & I came to Kingston while waiting for our baby to be born. We stayed in a a King room & then upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite when more family arrived. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was better than anything I've experienced at a hotel before. A lovely tulip plant showed up in... More

Good morning DoubleL0720, It was great having you and your expanding family here! We were really glad to be a part of this significant event in your lives. And of course, being away from home, especially when you live so far, can be stressful. I'm quite glad we helped to ease that stress. Thank you so much for your wonderful... More

My family recently stayed here in order to attend the Queen's open house. Never in my life have I been at a hotel with more friendly or helpful staff!! From check in to checkout everyone I encountered was on their "A" game. I called down for a blanket and "poof" someone was at the door minutes later! Many times I... More

Dear JDPower2005, I could not be more proud after reading your review! One of greatest features is our staff - we are all very proud of our service and guest orientation.

We were very surprised when we got there; the lobby was very clean and staff was very friendly. There is a gym on the premises with the latest equipment along with a sauna which we didn't know about. There is also a huge pool wit hardly anybody in it. The breakfast area was extremely clean and the food quality just... More

Hello Correaer, I'm glad we were able to pleasantly surprise you! The next time you're in town, you should certainly take advantage of our fitness centre, saltwater pool, and 24 hour dry saunas. You must have visited at just the right time to have the opportunity of the pool all to yourself. I hope you get the chance to pay... More

Stayed in a 2br suite with kitchenette & living room for a week long family vacation with the husband, parents, sister and our well-traveled toy poodle. We were in a very quiet corner room, facing west - away from the water, but still had water views. It is very walkable to downtown Kingston, right on a waterfront trail. We took... More

Well hello there Lowe_Country. Glad to hear that you stayed with us for such an extended period of time with your little fuzzy friend. Hotels with two bedroom suites are few and far between in this neck of the woods, so it's definitely good to take advantage of that room type! Are you planning a summer visit by any chance?... More

We have used this hotel for Kingston visits for some time now, and it never disappoints. Nice, quiet rooms, a good breakfast buffet, friendly and helpful staff, and fairly inexpensive. The only issue is the internet connection -- it's inconsistent, even during off-peak hours. That said, a nice visit, as always. We will be back, no doubt!

The suite was well appointed, large and nicely laid out so you had distinct and separate bedroom, living and kitchen area. The hot breakfast buffet that was included was a nice bonus too. And by hot breakfast buffet it included a variety of breads and muffins, eggs, potatoes, waffles, sausage patties, fruit, juices, cereals, tea and coffee. We paid $150... More

We were in a 2 bedroom suite as we had our grown children with us, and even the hide-a-bed in the living room area was to my son's approval.
