I needed to stay overnight in Chatham and after reading some of the reviews and seeing the rooms online I booked the Midtown. This is a truly unique boutique type hotel that has really paid close attention to detail and sticking to the theme. Our room had tall ceilings, exposed brick detail and excellent linens and towels. It was a... More

I was go to Chatham on business once in a while and recently found this hotel. Chatham has had a somewhat depressed economy for a number of years. This hotel was a big surprise. It is an old hotel that someone has put a huge amount of money into upgrading it to a truly luxury hotel. Its rooms are some... More

Thank you Christopher C for such a wonderful review! So, a little background on the Hotel; the property was turned into the Merrill Hotel in 1890 and functioned as a hotel and bar until 1995 until the current owner made some major renovations. The Hotel now encompasses 9 buildings, has 33 suites and 9 long-term fully furnished apartments. The owner... More

My husband and I were both born and raised in Chatham Kent, and received a gift certificate to the Retro Suites. We decided to have a "downtown Chatham weekend", and so even though we live almost walking distance to the Retro Suites. We invited our son and daughter in law to join us for the night, and stayed in the... More

The staff at the Retro Suites did a great job in handling our Christmas Party of 60 guests. The meals were excellent and everything was served in a timely manner. a great place for a staff party such as this and having the ability to stay over night in there rooms was a nice touch. Lots of fun! Thanks!

We stayed in the Autumn room and fell in love with this place. Our room had a little balcony and was set-up like a studio apartment. The bathroom was great with a large shower. We just loved the decor. The wet bar came with utensils and place settings for 2, we found it very romantic. We will be back to... More

My husband and I stayed at Retro Suites for our anniversary. We absolutely loved the hotel and cannot wait to stay again. We stayed in the 'Sky' room. The room was beautiful. It was large, airy (but very cozy) and very clean. The bathroom has an amazing, large glass shower and a skylight above. Every detail is beautiful. We ate... More

I have stayed at the Retro Suites hotel several times while on Business in Chatham. This is a gem in a small town in southern Ontario. I always look forward to staying here. The rooms are all different and very imaginatively decorated. The staff is courteous and so helpful. If you are in Chatham or even near by and need... More

I stayed at the Retro Suites hotel while on a business trip with colleagues. This was the funkiest hotel I've ever stayed in - not your everyday, cookie cutter experience in any sense of the word. Each room is completely different, themed down to every detail including the dishware in the kitchenette. After dinner the first night we were compelled... More

Retro Suites was a refreshing experience - definitely not a humdrum hotel. Lots of atmosphere, very clean, and the staff were very friendly. Downtown Chatham is very quiet with not many places to hang out at night, so good thing the hotel bar was open. Breakfast in the on-site restaurant next morning was also good.
