The Prince Arthur is located beside Marina park, near the casino and within walking distance of several excellent restaurants. This is mainly important if you would rather not drive all over the city and prefer to walk. There is a pedestrian bridge and crosswalk right outside the hotel that both lead to marina park and its many features. The hotel... More

Dear Guest Thank you for stay at the Prince Arthur Hotel during your visit to Thunder Bay. I can't agree with you more, the Waterfront District is the place to be. . With many restaurants/pubs, local shops and casino all within a short walk. Not to mention our beautiful marina park that hosts many events through out the year, splash... More

It looks like the owners have stopped the investments on this hotel. I'm sure it used to be the chic place downtown, long ago. The worst part is that we could not sleep. The door is thin, the room was facing the elevator. The smoke detector detected that its batteries were at their end of life and it went off... More

Dear Guest I was a pleasure speaking with you the other day regarding your stay with us. As I mentioned during our phone conversation the other day, we check every smoke alarm daily and batteries are changed every 6 months or sooner if needed. It is difficult to predict when a battery will start to beep. If given the opportunity... More

We stayed twice at the Prince Arthur hotel last month during a trip by private aircraft. The main reason why we came back the second time is that the hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from the Thunder Bay airport, thus saving us the considerable expense of taxi fares. A night's stay including this service is excellent value... More

I love old buildings but this one needs a bit of work. There is a strong smoke smell on all floors and some rooms require repair and up keep. It also doesn't help when the room next door decides it is a good time to play guitar and smoke weed into the late light. With a two inch gap under... More

The Prince Arthur Hotel is good value for money. Make sure that you ask for the walk-in rate that is advertised out on the highway, otherwise you will pay too much! The hotel is clean and tidy and the rooms are comfortable and equipped with refrigerator and coffee maker. Breakfast in the hotel dining room is tasty and quick -... More

We arrived at Thunder Bay on a dark and stormy night---and after a quick search of the downtown area, the looming brick and concrete ediface of the Prince Arthur Hotel beckoned with its warm light and grand entrance. The years have worn some of her beauty, but the bones are good. The rooms themselves are perfectly adequate. Like many historic... More

After booking and reading reviews on this site - I had very low expectations for this hotel. However, I found that the front desk was helpful and kind. I also found that our particular room was clean and well-kept. The view of the Sleeping Giant from our window was great. The location, near the water, was walking distance to restaurants... More

A lot of leeway has been given to this ol' gal over the years because of her history, but unless the current owners invest some money into her she will be losing repeat clientele. We stayed there recently because of the location - right across the street from Bluesfest. If not for that we would not have chosen the Prince... More

Was there with a group of motorcyclists. Staff was very friendly and tried to make us welcome. Weather was damp and cold and had difficulty getting room warm. Found nearly empty pizza box in my closet, other then that room clean. Elevator was somewhat undersized for the building when people had multiple bags to bring to their rooms. However if... More

This hotel was terrible. I have two small children (20 months and 4 months) and yes they go to bed early, but the noise in this hotel was something else. We waited and hoped the noise would calm down by 9pm, but instead the ppl next to us and their children were running up and down the hallways until 11pm,... More
