This is a great little boutique hotel. We really enjoyed the themed room (The Midtown) with the exposed brick walls and the high ceilings. The lobby and rooms are very newly remodeled and everything feels fresh and clean. The front desk employees were very knowledgeable about the area for attractions, dining, etc. The complimentary hot (eggs, hashbrowns, toast) or continental... More

I recently had the opportunity to once again stay at Retro Suites. This time I chose the Easy Rider room, which is a Harley Davidson themed room. It was awesome. I had several guests in my room as we were at a wedding and all were in awe of the room. The staff at the hotel couldn't have been nicer.... More

What a treat this was! My husband and I stayed in The Study for one night thanks to family members who gave us a gift certificate to try it out (as they loved staying here for a family wedding). We live in Chatham, so probably would never have stayed here. It was like experiencing a special retreat. Staff were friendly... More

I have stayed in several hotels over the years and none have compared to this hotel. It is amazing how much attention was taken to detail from all the art work right down to the staff's uniforms The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel it's self was very clean and staff were constantly cleaning the hotel. The restaurant is... More

We stayed at the RetroSuites for a business weekend and found the rooms cozy and comfortable. From the business aspect, the conference room was conveniently located and service was very good. The online views allow you to choose your room in advance if it is available which is a bonus. Being within walking distance from the downtown was convenient as... More

My husband and I stayed at the Retro Suites for a family members wedding. Our whole family had taken up the hotel rooms, so we ended up with having the whole hotel to ourselves. Not to mention the wedding reception. What a spectacular & breathtaking hotel to say the least. Very friendly, cheerful & helpful staff throughout the hotel. Very... More

We had our wedding at the Retro Suites last year, and we thought it'd be a great idea to celebrate our first anniversary at the hotel. Of course we weren't disappointed. Myla at the front desk was incredibly outgoing and friendly when we checked in. Our room, Sail Inn, was fantastic! Part of the fun in staying here is checking... More

As a transplanted South Western Ontario girl, I rarely get a chance to stay at a hotel there just for pleasure- usually an overnight stay at a chain hotel before an early morning flight back to the coast. During a visit home in September 2014, my brother told me about the Retro Hotel because we had planned a trip to... More

We finally had the chance to getaway for our 25th Anniversary and we certainly picked the right place!! Fantastic staff - Myla at the front desk was fantastic and Mauro in the Chilled Cork Restaurant was outstanding!! The pictures could not do justice to the room. We were in the "First Class" Airplane themed room - spacious, and well appointed.... More
