We were staying there due to an Air Canada service delay, and AC paid for our room, so I don't know what it cost. There was a shuttle from the airport that was friendly and timely and easy to deal with--though the airport is nearly 15 minutes away. The room was *very* far from the front desk and the little map they gave us didn't make sense. We wandered into a snow-covered courtyard with room doors opening onto it and found our room, but keycards don't work in the courtyard doors for some reason--we had to circle around and find the inside door. Very confusing!
The room was nice enough, nothing exception except that it had a minifridge and microwave, which was nice. The bathroom was tiny and only had a shower--also a burn mark on the floor.
The restaurant was not great but reasonable for a hotel. The breakfast buffet was pricey and nothing to write home about, but the lunch was decent. The waitstaff seemed overwhelmed and not terribly well-trained but nice enough.
The main area of the hotel is laid out like a Carribbean resort but with a roof--the restaurant had an indoor "patio" that lead towards the indoor pool. I imagine that could be kind of noisy for the diners in a confined area if lots of kids were swimming, but no one used the pool that we saw so it was peaceful.
It looked like a VERY nice pool, but we didn't have our swimsuits with us. I bet that's the main draw for families who come to this hotel.
Checkout was relatively simple and the shuttle took us back to the airport in good time.
