While my boyfriend and I are from Newfoundland, we do like to occasionally have a night out locally. We have stayed at the Delta before as well. This was my first time at the Sheraton, and my boyfriend had stayed there previously when it was the Fairmont. While we enjoyed the Delta, the Sheraton did win for its restaurant, rooms, and overall atmosphere. The recently renovated rooms were modern yet comfortable. They were spacious with a beautiful marble bathroom. One small hiccup: the tongs attached to the ice bucket were very dirty! An attendant replaced it, and apoligized profusely. Not the end of the world!
We took advantage of the swimming pool (which was a little chilly!) and hot tub during our stay. The pool area is beautiful, complete with a view of the waterfall which flows from the lobby. I did enjoy the Delta pool better (the boyfriend disagrees); the Sheraton should look into purchasing one of those handy bathing suit dryers :)
We had supper at Bivver, the newly opened bar; it was delicious and very well priced! We ordered a trio dessert later in the evening and it was scrumptious! The next morning, we had breakfast in the newly opened Oppidan which was very good as well. The wait staff at both restaurants were extremely friendly. We requested a late check-out which was provided which was a nice bonus.
I feared that the Sheraton would not live up to the standards of the previous owners, Fairmont, but I was very happily surprised. The recent renovations have given this Newfoundland landmark a beautiful facelift.
It should also be noted that Sheraton has an excellent customer incentive program. We got our next night at 50% after just one stay! We will definitely return to the Sheraton again.
Also, great elevator music.
