We were looking for a hotel by Canal Park and were surprised to find most were filled mid week. Based on the review on trip advisor we booked a room here. The hotel is located right after you cross the lift bridge so it is within walking distance to the Canal Park area and the price was less than some of the rooms left in other hotels.
Nice room, clean and comfortable bed. There is a desk, fridge and microwave in the room. The other sitting area was large, but were cushions on a built out area so it wasn't really comfortable to lay back or lounge in.
Breakfast was a typical continental with yogurt, bananas, apples and oranges. Coffee, juice and danish or toast. They did keep stocking it but the eating area is very small.
We liked our upper floor room and didn't mind the balcony overlooking the parking lot as it was quiet. We would have liked the lakeview but wonder if it wouldn't be noisier since it is really only 20 feet from the water and bridge. We would stay here again but would try the lakeside next time.
