Have stayed here a few times - for work and pleasure,. It's fine, but nothing special. Decor is a bit dated and not within walking distance of downtown. When in Kingston, I'd much rather be downtown and close to the great restaurants. The onsite Toms place restaurant is fine if you are staying there. One bonus is free parking as... More

Great location on Princess. Great attention to details. The rooms and bathroom are clean and comfortable. We had a great sleep and even though the hotel was busy, the hotel was nice and quiet. We enjoyed a late dinner in Tom's Place Lounge. It's like being in your own living room with the comforts of home. Very good menu choices... More

I am a platinum member and upon checkin I was upgraded to the best room in the hotel. I was treated like a king. Great front desk manager who looked after me. I will be back for sure. The room was cool and I did not have to turn on the air conditioning as I would be doing with many... More

Was odd to find so much of other people's hair on the washroom floor, the shower and in the whirlpool tub, ruined our stay and no one seemed to be surprised once reported, that tells you something. As a loyal long time customer of the BW brand I was appaled at the condition of our room overall. AVOID THIS PROPERTY.

The food at Toms Bar is excellent and well priced, the staff we met were all very friendly. If you are in the area it is a... More

A hotel with a whole lot of atmosphere, excellent staff and food. A wonderful experience and if in the area, a definite Yes to Stay. Highly recommend. Every room has a fireplace for ambience, it is a mix of old and new which comes together in a wonderful experience. Many things in the area to see, very close to 1000... More

My husband booked us a room at this hotel for my birthday. We stayed in the "Tranquility Base" Fantasy suite, and it was absolutely fantastic. The room décor was very impressive, the room was huge and clean. We had dinner at Bistro Stefan (The hotel restaurant) and it was delicious. All staff we encountered was very friendly. The water pressure... More

Good location and close proximity to the 401. Close to shopping and amenities. The room decor is very appealing and the breakfast provided is probably one of the best buffet tables of any Best Western hotels.

We stayed two nights at this hotel this visit and enjoyed it a lot. The free breakfast is great, it includes almost everything you could want. We were on a group travel with several other motorcycles and our bikes were safe, no one messed with them. We had a catered dinner there as well and it was very good. The... More
