Thank you for all the work that went into making our conference a success. (Sept 17/18 MNRF) From my first contact with the sales team (Caryn) to wonderful staff at the front desk. Conference room was bright, with great views of the pond, geese and of course The Sleeping Giant Mountain. And the hotel rooms we cozy, clean and very... More

This hotel was clean, with a comfortable bed, and a lovely location overlooking a pond with geese and a view of the Sleeping Giant Mountain. The hotel outside of downtown Thunderbay but close enough to go back downtown to see the harbor, shopping area and to eat.

Have nothing but good things to say about my recent stay at the Nor'Wester - they hosted our group of about 50 for a youth conference. The staff were friendly, caring and accommodating. The space was great and always clean, rooms were beautiful. We truly felt 'at home'. I will definitely plan future events here.

We love autumn and thought we would take our color tour a little further than Minnesota's north shore and planned a spontaneous trip the Thunder Bay to view Sleeping Giant and Fort William. I looked on line for a room and was willing to pay slightly more $20.00 to $30.00 per night more than other hotels we would have considered... More

I usually stay at the Victoria Inn when I'm in Thunder Bay for work, but a colleague of mine recommended this place so I decided to try it out during my last trip. The rooms were great and the staff was very helpful and polite. The view of the mountains was beautiful. It's a bit out of the way, but... More

I arrived at the hotel at midnight to check in with my toddler son via shuttle from the airport. Since we were travelling most of the day I was unable to store milk for this length of time. The front desk managed to round me up a cup, this was much appreciated since other wise I would have been carting... More

Got a pop splashed on me upon checking in, got no apology. The wi-fi didn't work. There was no microwave in the room and when I called to ask for one they said they couldn't provide one because all of the electrical in the hotel is out of date and not up to capacity to have a microwave in each...

This a very nice property, located in a scenic part of Thunder Bay. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Didn't feel like a big meal so we ordered off of the lunch menu and had two different sandwiches which were both good. A Reuben sandwich and breaded perch sandwich, served with flavorful soup. The room was comfortable but we... More

Our stay was a pleasant surprise, my wife and I stepped into a wedding that occupied most of the rooms. We go a quiet room far from the brouhaha! The staff was pleasant, courteous and helpful, they took good care of our needs. Will definitely stay here again.
