Stayed in the presidential suite. The suite was uniquely decorated. Maybe a little too much flash, but interesting enough for a short stay. The staff were accommodating, the price was semi reasonable but there was nothing other than the decor that really was exceptional.

If you want something very different that the cookie cutter corporate hotels, this is the place. Great for a getaway. Themed rooms, great decor. The renovations on the back of the building are great. Art work throughout the hotel makes for an interesting walk to your room.

The Retro Suites hotel is a hidden gem. It's specialty themed rooms and it's unique art make it a truly one of a kind stay. Anyone with the love of music would enjoy the special show posters decorating this room. Custom signed instruments adorn the walls. As with every room, there is a kitchen with all that you would need.... More

Stayed for one night only but this is a must-see! Bring a camera as you'd wanna take a picture at every turn. Very good preservation job of the building. Interesting art pieces. It's great to know that a place like this exists in Ontario. The $5 classic breakfast by the hotel is just an added bonus. Home fries has very... More

This was our first stay at the Retro Suites Hotel. We loved the inconic, eye-catching touches everywhere we looked. We appreciated the free water, wifi, and breakfast. Our room (airplane theme) was large, well lit and comfortable. The gentleman at the front desk was helpful and followed up on our requests, assuring us that if we needed anything else, he... More

The pictures posted on the web site do not reflect how well appointed the rooms are. Our room was huge. It was also very quiet. The bathroom had... More

Lady at front desk was real polite and helpful directing us to our room and advising of parking facilities nearby. Our room was a... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Retro Suites on May 23-24, 2014. We went to a wedding at the Armouries so it was really convenient for us to be at a close walking distance. We stayed in the Easy Rider room. The room was extremely clean and spacious! Loved the high ceilings and exposed brick. There were lots of... More
