Stayed there for a week on a business trip. Nice atmosphere inside the hotel. More like a lodge than a hotel. Friendly staff. The continental breakfast was also good. Very close to the water and within walking distance of lots of restaurants and cafes.

I travel to St John's regularly and have stayed at all of the downtown hotels over the last three years. Having said that the Murray is by far my favourite and is my default location unless they are fully booked. The service is top notch and the charm of an heritage building just cant be beat. Not to mention the...

This hotel was perfect! When we arrived the staff met us and explained the amenities of the hotel. Free parking, breakfast complimentary, free newspaper, and a common room where there was coffee available all day! We went to our room and we're pleasantly surprised by it. Large tub, towel warmers , large shower with extra water jets, fireplace, a view...

Stayed at the murray premises for four nights in October. Great location, excellent continental breakfast and no issues with staff or services. One big issue- we were on the third floor and you could hear people walking above you, conversations in the next room and could hear every toilet flush upstairs all hours of the night. If the room above...

The hotel staff were very accommodating. We arrived very late at night with our two small children. They walked us to our room, and suggested late night places for food. They brought a pack and play crib for our infant and set it up for us right away. I just wish they had a softer mattress for it. Our trip...
