“Great Hotel”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights, great hotel. Rooms are a bit small, but the beds are comfortable. The pool/hot tub patio on the rooftop is lovely, great place to relax before dinner. The $10/day for parking seems reasonable, as most of downtown Kamloops is meter parking. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on a friday night, in a basic room at club level (5th floor) which included underground parking and breakfast. However, we had noisy neighbors, so David at front desk, kindly accommodated us by moving us to an upgraded room at the end of the hall. King beds were comfy, clean, and club level even has Keurig coffee brewers. Ate at Blue, the hotel restaurant for dinner and breakfast, as it was recommended by locals and prices were reasonable. Breakfast had the option of ordering a la carte (i.e. steak and eggs) or enjoying the buffet, which had great variety and gourmet-style touch i.e. 4-berry waffle sauce. Staff works hard, but their Rocky Mountaineer tour groups may make them super busy at times. Pool and hot tub was nice and they have heating lamps, but windy weather may deter you. Best to enjoy pool during early afternoon and evening.

We booked a massage at Aina Organic Spa which was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Can walk to nearby Riverside park for free Friday night music shows at ~6-8pm. On Saturday morning, can walk to the town's farmers market a couple blocks away, for fresh produce and local handcrafts. Lots of highly rated urbanspoon restaurants within walking distance.

Price was slightly higher than other chain hotels, but had a more boutique feel and the added benefit of being in downtown near walking attractions. Joining their Perks program also gave 500 aeroplan miles bonus. The less expensive chain hotels at the ends of towns are surrounded by big box stores and typical suburban shopping and require a car / bus. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: End rooms have a slightly higher chance of being quieter, but bring earplugs in case.

Lovely comfortable hotel in good location. Lovely outdoor pool but service a bit slow for drinks. We opted for bed and breakfast package. Breakfast was not good, had to wait for a table and then for a long time for food to be replenished. I gave up and got cost refunded. Really nice bar but closes at 10.30 for last orders???

This hotel is newly renovated and in a great location downtown close to the park and all amenities like good coffee shops, bars and shopping. The rooftop pool and terrace complete with sofas and a gym is really impressive. I will always stay here when I come to Kamloops!

We enjoyed our stay here. There were two lovely queen beds in our room with quality bed linen and very comfortable pillows. The recently completed roof pool and pool area were a joy to use. This hotel is located downtown and in easy walking distance to restaurants and the Riverside park. Parking is not clearly marked as you have to turn into the alley at the side of the hotel and casino. Stop in the alley while you go into hotel and collect key for car park.

If you need to stay in Kamloops, then this perfectly positioned, well-run hotel is a must. The staff are professional and welcoming, the place is new and very well maintained - and there's a grerat restaurant both inside, and also just across the road. (Frick n Frack) all this - and a rooftop pool too!

Kanloops was a brief stop for us on the way to the Rocky mountains.
The 540 hotel is nice, clean, the bed was good, breakfast nice and has a nice fitness room.
Parking was a bit of a pain as the car park was full.
