Visited Hamilton for a wedding. I looked at a lot of motels and lodges online before chosing the Novotel. Other than the Ibis, it seems to the only hotel in the city. It is pretty standard chain hotel. The staff were friendly enough, the lobby is quite nice and the rooms were OK. We had paid for a newly refurbished... More

Great rooms, love the desks. Had an average breakfast (Cold buffet). They sent me a survey after my stay which I let them know, and they bent over backwards to let me know it wouldn't happen again when I returned, and it hasn't. Obviously, would stay again.
