I recently stayed for a night at the Hotel on Pownal and was very pleased with the room and amenities. It is in the heart of the Downtown but in a very quiet location. Service was wonderful. Definitely recommend for a weekend that you want to get out and enjoy Charlottetown.

Went to this hotel in February for my son's interview for vet school. We loved the location and the staff was so helpful with suggesting good restaurant options. There was a huge amount of snow, but the hotel parking lot remained shoveled and accessible throughout our stay. Only negative were the quality and quantity of towels. We did have to... More

This place has the type of excellent service that I would expect from a pricier hotel but at a much better rate. Compared to the big-brand hotels in the area, this place is a cut above. The greeting at arrival was exceptional, even though I arrived late at night.

First time staying at Hotel on Pownal. No on-site restaurant, but helpful desk staff directed me to several dining choices - all within walking distance. Hospitality staff at this location was excellent. Shayna, front desk reception, was helpful, pleasant, professional.

Super clean and comfortable. Stayed with a small baby and the whole family had a great sleep. Everything downtown is within walking distance, so with the free parking it makes a handy base of operations to check out Charlottetown. Free wifi was solid, bath products were great quality (shoe shine in the bathroom kit - nifty!), and the complimentary breakfast... More

Easy walk to downtown, nice accommodations, friendly staff and a pleasant eating nook where coffee and tea are always available plus a continental breakfast in the morning. Beds and linens were the best ever, so comfy for a good night's rest.

What better way to have a vet student class reunion than to share memories and reflect on how things have progressed. The Hotel on Pownal certainly has come a long way since its previous life as the Islander. Improvements have been made in every area with attention to detail given wherever you look.
