I have stayed here several times and have always been impressed with the friendly, helpful front desk staff. On the latest stay, my room fronted on the parking lot on the main level. You can see the mountains but the foreground was not so impressive with the grille of an F-150 staring at me. The waterfront view is much nicer if you can get it.
My room was neat and tidy, although the heating seemed slow and inefficient. On windy nights I could feel the wind as well as hear it -- as if the weatherstripping on the windows was absent. On the plus side, there was a nice bay window seat bench to sit and read at with the mountains in the background.
I had requested a fridge for my room so I could store some breakfast provisions, and there was no problem fulfilling my request. 40" flat screen tv, armoire, and ultra modern bathroom with luxurious dual shower heads.
Bathroom amenities were by Aveda, loved the soap. Decent selection of TV channels.
The gym included a steam room and outdoor hot tub with a priceless view of the harbour. There was a treadmill, stairclimber(couldn't seem to work I properly), elliptical, 2 kinds of stationary bike, rowing machine, some free weights and a couple of weight machines for muscle work.
I frequented Charley's Lounge, the pub part of the restaurant, where the food was always well made. A selection of local seafoods is always part of the menu and the wait staff are very cheery.
The hotel is situated on a hill right next to the Chances Casino. There's a liquor store and Safeway market across the street. About a ten minute walk away(NW) is Cow Bay, a touristy area with some great little boutiques and restaurants/pubs.
If you fly in via The airport, the airport bus drops you off at the Highliner Hotel, a ten minute walk to this hotel, or 2 minute cab ride.
All in all, a great place to stay while in Prince Rupert.
