My husband and I live in downtown Burlington just down the road from the Waterfront Hotel and this is the only place we recommend to family and friends who are visiting the area. We have a one bedroom condo on the lake and therefore no additional space for overnight guests and we have booked the Waterfront several times for them.
There is on site, free parking given to guests but don't forget to display your parking pass in the window or you will be ticketed because the parking enforcement in downtown Burlington is brutal!
There is an onsite restaurant for meals and probably the best patio view in town! The hotel has a small but adequate indoor pool with hottub and is steps away from the new Pier jetting out onto Lake Ontario. As well, within steps of the hotel there are many, many fabulous restaurants to choose from. Our favourite is the Pepperwood Bistro on Lakeshore, which has a micro brewery on site and several different brands to choose from.
Yes, some of the rooms are dated yet recently my guests have been getting lucky with being assigned the renovated rooms on the 5th floor. I have a feeling that the hotel is slowly renovating all the rooms. My guests have never had a complaint about the hotel and are always pleased when they check out.
Yes, it does get a bit loud in the summer months at this location because of it's direct proximity to Spencer Smith Park. There is always something going on there in the summer (ie. Sound of Music Festival or Rib Fest).
So speaking as a local, I wouldn't hesitate putting up a family member or friend at this hotel and will continue to recommend for years to come.
