In addition, the entire staff was great. The young woman (Jamie) who checked us in was helpful and gave us a choice between the 2 available rooms. (We... More

This is a one of a kind experience! I wanted to take pictures of every single aspect of this hotel. It is absolutely stunning and the friendliness and service can't be topped. From the minute you walk in the gorgeous lobby you are greeted by the beautiful smiling face of Myla Anderson. As I had just had knee surgery she... More

We traveled here last year for 1 night away from kids :). Each room was decorated in a different motif. I chose Sahara which had a little balcony and a kitchen. Hotel provided some water and popcorn which was nice. Room was really clean, bathroom was spotless but on the small side if that matters to you. We really enjoyed... More

Ok so you look on the web and see these very unique rooms and wonder if the place is really that good. Boy will you be pleased. Each room is unique but awesome. We stayed in the midtown and our friends in another. The hallways are pimped out too with retro themed furniture and artifacts. We also ate at the... More

Retro Suites Hotel is Chatham's best kept secret! We had our wedding here at the Chilled Cork and our guests loved it. The atmosphere, the food and the service was great. Everything was perfect!! We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Retro Suites Hotel is an amazing place to stay. Who would have thought that Chatham, Ontario with a population of 108,180 would be home to such a funky, interestingly designed, well-managed, one-of-a-kind hotel? The staff were absolutely amazing! They were friendly, full of great ideas, responsive, and incredibly helpful. The rooms are not only clean but creatively decorated and include... More

Nothing but great things to say about this one-of-a-kind establishment. Every room is different. Music in restaurant great 50's classics. A really pleasant experience. Nicely appointed rooms with plenty of freebies. Even includes golf! Doesn't get any better than this.
