This boutique style hotel has trendy chic decor and is in a great location in downtown Charlottetown close to many restaurants and charming stores. Our double room was clean and fresh, and although not large it was big enough for just the two of us. Our bed was really comfortable with good quality linens. Bathroom was nicely decorated. The location... More

Upon entering I was impressed with the lobby - very new and renovated. I was impressed with the cookies and I was happy with the breakfast. The staff were always very pleasant and helpful. My complaint would be that my room was small. It had around 5 feet on either side of the bed which was too cramped for me.... More

The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. It was immaculately clean. Self serve breakfast had lots of choices and was home made. Fresh baked cookies on arrival!! The decor in common areas and rooms was very tasteful. Location of many sites within walking distance.

We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and its proximity to Queen St. Pretty much everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. The rooms are nice and modern with a large LCD TV and a very comfortable bed but counter space in the bathroom was a tad small. What was a real delight was how friendly the staff... More

Came to PEI for a conference and stayed here, not knowing anything about the hotel. It is a gem. It has been recently renovated and is very comfortable. The rooms are well laid out, beds are wonderful, breakfast is always fresh and the baked treats are terrific. The hotel is well situation within Charlottetown and I would highly recommend it...

We booked a room because it looked very nice on their homepage. But what we got was a re-decorated motel room for the price of a luxury hotel suite. The air condition was so loud we had to turn it off to get some sleep. It was the least value for money we got on our whole trip to Canada.... More

This property has been completely renovated over the past couple of years into a smart, well appointed, boutique feel, lovely, brand new inside and out hotel. Lobby is so inviting. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good. Location excellent, on a residential tree shaded street just a block from the cool shops and eateries of downtown Charlottetown. Confederation Centre within easy... More

Hotel is recently renovated so all the room amenities from the 40: LCD to poster bed are very nice. Bathroom is a bit small but the big leather couch in the living room more than makes up for it.

I stayed at the hotel on Pownal and it was great! Beautiful lobby greats you and the staff are attentive and friendly. The place is immaculately clean and very comfortable. Several unique touches like the furniture in the rooms remind you that you are not in a "regular" hotel with cheap fixtures and crummy paintings on the wall.

This hotel was a delight for my 4-night stay! Location was ideal for downtown shopping. Room was comfortable and spotless. Staff was super friendly and helpful in answering any and all questions about the accomodations and Charlottetown area. Continental breakfast was the best - and I couldn't get enough of the freshly baked cookies offered during the day. Such a... More
