I loved the view out of my room when I stayed here. I had a corner room with a view of the water. The room was clean, comfortable and great size. Staff were friendly and the hotel is nicely located on the waterfront. One issue I had was that my room had a circular window that didn't have blinds or...

This is my 4th stay at this hotel in the past 3 years. Also stayed a few times when it was under the Delta brand. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is friendly and attentive to customer needs. On March 10, 2017, I checked out early AM, and about 15 minutes later, Air Canada advised my outbound flight had been...

I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff! Each staff member that we encountered was personable and friendly. The location has a great view of the harbour, as well. We had good experiences at both the restaurants - tasty food and kind staff.

My family cannot say enough about the wonderful service we received during our recent stay at this Holiday Inn. We unexpectantly returned home to Cape Breton in order to lay to rest our beloved mother. Our flight arrived early morning but the staff allowed us an early check in. The rooms were beautiful, overlooking Sydney Harbour. Impeccably clean. In my...

I'm satisfied with my stay here - the staff are always helpful and kind. I find that housekeeping can be improved, as they are slow getting to the rooms. Every other service is well done. I was here in the Spring and Summer and I find that since there's a pool here, it's super family-friendly which can translate into noise....

Great hotel on the waterfront. We paid extra for a full water view and it was worth it. The hotel is close to everything downtown. Watch the cruise ships come in from your room. We ate at both the pub and the restaurant and the food was great.
