“very friendly”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Found the staff very friendly, quick check in, offer for $5 off card at starbucks on site for declining house keeping 2nd day. Room was recently upgraded and was clean and well lit. Keg is attached. I was using the banquet facilities for a conference and it was very well ran, food was good and everything went well however the main loading dock as per most places is right behind the conference room so it can be noising when loading/unloading during the day. Also, valet area is under construction but it wasn't too bad other than having to stop on road. Underground parking is tight for trucks so I chose to park offsite which is a 2 block walk, not bad in the great summer weather and it seems to be a safer parking area than most.

We stayed during renovations but all was well. Great location downtown with valet parking ( self parking under ground as well). Keg Restaurant and lounge also located in the same building with access from lobby. We were in a suite c/w balcony. Great room. Extra large with large bathroom and a shower for two. Great beds. Great service throughout. Bottle of champane and chocolate covered strawberry's were waiting in the room when we arrived. Priced not to bad cinsidering its right downtown. Complimentary breackfast was excellent with made to order omletes and eggs and other hot items. Very good selection.

Room Tip: Splurge and buy the suite.

No big surprises here except the minor inconvenience of out-front and parking-garage renos. Classy cherry furnishings, beds and sheets that aid deep sleep, the extra touches of quality soap etc. note: not all rooms have fridges. They charge $12 for wifi normally but they waived it for us-it's worth a try. After all, wifi is a utility in this era and should be free and strong throughout every hotel. Parking is overpriced at an extra $30. We were rudely awoken by a porter loudly banging bags, allowing doors to slam and talking loudly; better training is required. Finally, the in-house resto provided an excellent breakfast but at $21 for one sausage and one egg and toast. Coffee another $5 per person. Hmmm. We'd go back to the hotel and eat elsewhere.

We stayed here at the beginning of our western Canada trip and found it great. The room was freshly renovated and lobby was spectacular. The front desk was very helpful at check in and gave us great recommendations on where to eat the first night. Check out was fast and easy as we took advantage of the express check out. Overall a great experience and way to start our trip. Tip. Book on Expedia, they have a very good rate.

We stayed here at the beginning of August 2013, the first night on our trip from the uk. We had a great welcome from the front desk and everything was done very efficiently. Our room was really lovely with a huge bed and sitting area. The breakfast buffet was very high quality. A great stay and we would recommend it.

The title really sums it up. The staff were very courteous, the rooms were very quiet even with the AC on. The bathroom was spacious and shower equally so. Very comfortable bed with good pillows. A really positive experience at pretty acceptable rates.
