My wife and I have a date night away from the kids every couple of months and either stay at the Sunsquare hotel at Monte casino or at the Protea Hotel Fire and Ice Melrose Arch. This last Saturday we stayed at the Protea Hotel Fire and Ice Melrose Arch and it was great, we always really enjoy it. The staff are very professional and friendly and always greet with a smile. The rooms are very clean, modern and quite spacious. The hotel has a very warm cozy feel to it. The hotel is also very centrally located in Melrose Arch and is situated close to all the shops and great restaurants. We always pick a new restaurant within walking distance of the hotel to try for dinner and then do a nice breakfast at another one in the morning. Our room was on the first floor and it was a bit noisy close to the restaurant / bar area as parties go on late into the night. I would suggest getting a room higher up on possibly the 3rd of 4th floor if you want a quieter room, however it was a Saturday night. We also order the famous milkshakes to the room from the milkshake bar and they were amazing, very decadent.
