We love Kingston and always stay at this hotel. The harbour view rooms are our choice. It's wonderful to sit out on the balcony and watch the people, the boats and the water. The rooms have always been comfortable, the staff pleasant and efficient. We'll return.

We stayed one night at this Holiday Inn. We had received an email from IHG prior to arrival to ask if we wanted early arrival and we said we would appreciate that but no rooms were available when we arrived at 2pm. Nevertheless the hotel stored our luggage and we returned an hour later to take our room. We had... More

We returned to this hotel after a 2 year absence and the upgrades were obvious. Our room, on the river side was immaculate....the hallways were similar and the staff throughout were attentive and courteous. The breakfast buffet was standard HI fare..but glad to report that Canadian French catsup was on each table, rather than Heinz from the USA ! Well... More

Nice room with waterfront balcony overlooking the harbour. Restaurant is on the water as well. Staff were friendly. Good value for the money. Many attractions close by including Fort Henry and the Ferry to Wolfe Island. Many restaurants close by. I will return.

My husband and I decided last minute to visit Kingston and chose the holiday Inn because of the great location on the water. I was having difficulty logging into the hotel WiFi.

We were here for a family occasion, in Kingston, and we wanted to stay at a hotel near the water, had a restaurant, near the centre of the city and had an outdoor pool.

We picked this hotel because of the outdoor pool and waterfront location and we were not disappointed. The pool was refreshing with gorgeous views of the harbour and the poolside furniture was most comfortable for lounging and reading our books. Rachel was our lifeguard and was very friendly, funny and helpful in getting us towels and pool noodles so we... More
