Great stay! Continental breakfast was basically anything from the restaurant menu. 20$ breakfast each morning for free and great food. Rooms clean, parking good. Gym much bigger then average for a hotel, several machines, free weights, treadmills, bikes and decent sized pool great for family and children. I would stay here again....

Hotel's Favorite
We got in from the states and our regular hotel was booked up, no we didn’t make reservations due to not know exactly when we would be arriving, went driving around to be told town was full ( Thunder Bay, Ontario) when alas the Hilton told us Nor Western had rooms, we called ASAP and sure enough they did and booked us, giving us a 1/2 hour leeway cos it was late and we were driving, there a little off the beaten path but wow, what a beautiful hotel, huge lobby, friendly staff and gorgeous rooms, the bonus being able to park at our patio door...we had been traveling for over 2 weeks and didn’t want to haul everything in and out, the room was clean and drop dead gorgeous with a complimentary breakfast pass for the morning, and the breakfast was out of this world, fresh fruit, waffles, the best home fries I’ve ever had, all done through a server then kitchen, really, really enjoyed this,
