The Lethbridge Lodge is a throwback to the days of theme hotels. The centre courtyard is a tropical jungle complete with waterfall and mini bridges - admittedly, it was a welcome relief from the ugly winter weather outside, but the layout of the hotel made dragging a heavy luggage cart up to the 4th floor a major pain in the butt.
The staff - particularily the catering and restaurant service staff - were excellent. Professional, accountable and thoroughly competent, they were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
The only things worth complaining about with respect to this hotel are things that the Lodge will eventually need to overhaul if they want to remain competitive with other hotels in the area that are newly renovted: the bathrooms are tiny, the water pressure is poor, the layout is awkward, the finishings are dated... The Lodge is situated ideally for holding meetings as it is close to the downtown core and the facility is unique with it's lush indoor garden, and if they ever shut down for a major renovation (instead of merely doing surface updates) they'll have a beautiful hotel on their hands. Until then, it's a flashback to the late 1990's...but not in a bad way. I'd stay there again simply for the service, although I have to say that service and Lethbridge seem to go hand in hand.
