“GOOD VALUE AND GREAT LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We spend 3 nights here recently and our experience was very good. Be sure and get the harbor view and if you can get the 519 or 419 corner suite which offers great views of harbor and Water street.
Hotel is clean and staff is good. Too bad they can't have ice on every floor but... Pillows were not really very good either..old and not much substance

Resaurant is so-so at best (although we only had breakfast there) with slow service but , hey its a hotel and in Newfoundland. Try the seafood at the Saltwater Restaurant instead - the best!

This is a great hotel to use as a base for downtown St. John's. Reasonably priced. Underground parking is free, and the Rumplestilskin restaurant attached has great breakfast skillets. Only complaint is the lack of a refrigerator in our room, which is typically included in rooms of the type we had in a hotel such as this.

This is a 3Star hotel, however, I will say that the convenience of having it within walking proximity to the Downtown area in St. John's was ideal. There is a restaurant/bar, Rumplestilkin, on the lower level which is good and convenient. Room was modest, no fridge to keep our water and or beer, but an ice and vending machine on the 2nd and 4th level. We did have to call for extra towels etc. however, but we had a 3rd person which was not included on the reservation. They were especially busy this weekend with the regatta and George Street festival, and room service was a little slow, so I offered to go pick up the order in a "take-out" fashion (also saves $3/per delivery). In any event, I would stay there again, it is certainly affordable and our room (345) overlooking of the mouth of the St. John's harbour and Signal Hill was spectacular! Hope to visit again soon!

We stayed twice in July, with two very different rooms. Both rooms were very comfortable, but one was on the corner of Hill O'Chips and Duckworth, while the other faced the back. The Hill O'Chips and Duckworth intersection must be one of the busiest in St John's, and it is very noisy for most of the day - definitely not recommended. The room facing the back was quite quiet and much more preferable. The restaurant attached to the hotel (different ownership) is adequate, but there are better choices in the city.

A wonderful hotel in St. John's. Dining room as beautiful harbour view. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The restaurant has a very big menu and the food is delicious. The parking is excellent with lots of space. Very easy to get in and out of parking lot. Very close to Geo Centre and other attractions in St. John's

Room Tip: Book early to get a harbour view. Vending machines are only available on even floors.

If you're expecting a 5-star hotel, you'll be disappointed, but you don't pay the 5 star price, either. That being said, I was more than satisfied with this hotel. The lobby doesn't have a grand chandelier and is in fact rather small. Elevators came promptly, though the doors closed too quickly. Our room was rather standard, but our two comfortable queen beds were made up European style. The well-operating air conditioning was appreciated in an unusually hot period, though it failed for a period in the dining room. The bathrooms were clean but dated and on the small side, and the toilets required holding the handle down until the flush was nearly complete (we stayed at the beginning and at the end of our trip, so two rooms were sampled.) We did not have a full view of the harbor, but we did not notice the noise mentioned in other reviews. The staff members we encountered were helpful and friendly. The restaurant in the hotel serves decent food, but nothing special.

Located near the downtown with an excellent view of the harbour this hotel is convenient for visiting the Saint John's area. We found the rooms clean and comfortable but the rest of the hotel is pretty dated. Staff are very friendly and polite and offer helpful advice on the local attractions.

There is underground parking but beware, if you are driving a standard size car or SUV, most parking spots are very tight.

There is no breakfast included with your stay but there are several nice cafés within a short walk from the hotel (including a Tim Hortons).
