I chose the Lord Elgin based on location, value and many recommendations from friends. Upon arriving we were greeted by very friendly staff. Within minutes the car was unloaded and we were checked in. The location was perfect. We arrived Friday afternoon, parked the car and didn’t use it again until we left Sunday afternoon. Everything was within walking distance. Location. Location. Location. It couldn’t have been more convenient.
As we anticipated there are parts of the hotel that are filled with old world charm and other parts that could use some updating. We had a park facing room with two queen beds. The room itself was very standard. The beds were comfortable and the room was very quiet. The décor was a little dated but was in line with the hotel. We loved the Keurig coffee maker and enjoyed the view of Confederation Park. A major con was that the linen/towels had seen better days. Our towels were quite thin and rough. Also the toiletries provided were minimal. There was soap, shampoo and body cream along with a shoe shine sponge and nothing else. No conditioner which to me is a basic item.
Having a Starbucks on ground was a major bonus. We didn’t eat in the restaurant but had some good drinks in the evening.
I would stay there again as the location and staff are wonderful. I might bring my own towels though.
