I stayed here on a recent business trip. I was pleased with this hotel. It is very conveniently located in very easy walking distance to everything important in Charlottetown: Confederation Centre for the Arts, The Guild, many fine restaurants, Province House, Victoria Row, and if you care to visit the downtown mall it is also right there. There was a... More

We stayed one night at this hotel and were very pleased. The modern hotel décor in the lobby carries throughout the hotel and in the rooms and the hotel has an urban feel.

Excellent hotel within walking distance of everything. Room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. All of the staff was friendly and professional. I thought that the free continental breakfast was amongst the best I had ever had, with lots of variety, including fresh fruit. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Our room was quite large and well appointed and most importantly for me - clean. There is no elevator though so be aware of that when booking - all rooms are up at least one flight of... More

This establishment and its front office staff exceeded all our expectations for a hotel in Charlottetown. From the upscale room accommodations through to the morning breakfast; all was a notch above anything experienced to date on PEI.

Stayed here on a quick overnight stop for business and while the hotel met my needs, the small rooms with a lack of a work space means I probably wouldn't go back for business, although the price was good. Check in was pleasant, and the property is nicely laid out. The rooms are very much on the small side, and... More
