Went to a wedding there this passed weekend. We got a special rate for being a wedding party guest. For what I paid it was an ok value. If the wedding wasn't in the hotel I probably would have stayed elsewhere. Service staff is nice and friendly. Food is average and pretty pricey compared to the food you can get... More

We had a corner king suite, the best room to get overlooking the water on two sides, with a balcony. Staff at the hotel were great, starting with the front desk. Breakfast in the resturant was fine except way under staffed, the ladies were working as hard as possible but could not keep up. Overall I think the best place... More

This property is lucky enough to have a great location, right in the harbor in Kingston. They have a nice patio and a great big outdoor swimming pool. Sadly, as far as the patio is concerned, they have a small kitchen---and hence service is very slow for a meal. Our wait staff reported that many tables just walk out. Despite... More

We arrived on a Saturday morning in July to attend a wedding. Not having been in Kingston for a while, we decided to stay an extra night. That's why we were so disappointed upon walking into our room, which cost roughly $500 for two nights. Apparently that doesn't get you much on downtown Kingston these days. Carpet throughout the hotel,... More

The waterfront Holiday Inn is a little long in the tooth, but that's OK. Our room was small but spotless, as was the bathroom. The best thing about it was the location. Our room had a balcony overlooking the marina and the Martello Tower. Fantastic! Staff were young and perhaps not that experienced, but cheerful all the same. Parking is... More

As stated in several reviews you are right where you want to be in the centre of the city. We had poolside room on third floor, which was great, had it not been for the sail ship docking there in the evening. Had we been on the ground floor, we would have looked eye to eye with the kids on... More

Excellent location, excellent water front view. Outdoor pool is great. Indoor pool and exercise room good. Rooms were decent could use a little face lift. The balcony was full of cobwebs makes it a little harder to enjoy the beautiful view while you sit outside. even at night the view is gorgeous. Definitely over priced for the hotel but i... More

We usually stay here whenever we come to Kingston. It is right on the waterfront and the view from the riverside is amazing!! We stayed this time on the top floor that have rooms. It was extremely quiet. The room itself was dated. I was surprised to see rugs in the room. The room itself was clean and the bed... More

The king bed was very comfortable . We upgraded to a room with a view of the river . This hotel could use a bit of updating but it was clean and the staff were friendly and efficient .

I booked two rooms for my family of five and we drove over 4 hours to get to Kingston. I had asked for water view rooms as it was my daughters first visit to the city. I booked on Booking.com.
