The Donald Gordon Conference Centre is part of Queen's University, and usually hosts its Business School conferences there. It recently opened the facility to the public when no conferences are booked. We stayed one night at the centre. Firstly, if you're a tourist, it's location is only convenient if you have a car (there is an ample-sized parking lot). Otherwise,... More

We booked this Hotel on a last minute trip to Kingston. Even though it was not in the Kingston centre, the location was in a residential neighborhood. The grounds were beautiful and the room was very clean and spotless. We felt we were at a 5 star Hotel. The service was excellent and the breakfast was superb!! They set up... More

Booked this facility for a last minute trip to Kingston on Aug. 8th & 9th. Everywhere else was sold out. This place was welcoming and so much cheaper with more services than some of the other larger hotels. Free parking and an awesome breakfast included. The room was extremely clean with abundant toiletries, towels, and pillows. Very quiet area. Every... More

A little outside Kingston centre but no problem if you have a car (parking space is available at no extra cost). As the name indicates this is specializing in conferences which makes the place seem a little deserted when no conferences are taking place. We stayed here for one night in a standard room. The rooms are just that -... More

i was absoutely impressed with this gem. Everyone was extremely professional, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were spotless ad comfortable. The attention to detail was what made this property above average -- from the free candy bar, beverages (a great variety) to the delicious breakfast. The courtyard was a lovely, quiet oasis -- I felt that I was at a... More

We picked this place with no expectation but we are impressed in a good way. Spacious parking, quite, right next to The queen's University. Rooms are not so big but clean, totally affordable price comparing to other DT hotels. Breakfast is super!

The DGCC creates such a beautiful and friendly environment, I was very impressed! Staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful, the food was absolutely amazing... there was so much variety. The room was large, clean and the candy bar in the lobby very tempting! Would highly recommend hosting an event here and/or booking acommodation.

Good location with lots of parking. Quiet. Nice room with bathrobes supplied - a neat touch, as was the before retiring chocolate at the door. Truly great buffet breakfast in the conference centre dining room. Perhaps a little pricey however, even with breakfast taken into account.

The Donald Gordon Centre is a wonderful place to stay in Kingston. Its only drawback is that it isn't easy walking distance to downtown (thought it is longish walking distance if you need a hike after dinner!). Wonderful rooms with very nice touches such as high quality shampoo and soap. A delicious breakfast buffet (or order one of the specials... More

The Donald Gordon Conference Centre was a wonderful place to stay. The hospitality of the DGCC creates such a welcoming relaxing and calming atmosphere from the Front Desk to Kitchen to Cleaning Staff. Simply Amazing. The nightly chocolate was a simple thing to do yet made the whole stay just that much better. Thank you so much for all the... More
