I booked this hotel originally in April for about $248 CAD per night. The only reason I booked it was because my parents who were arriving on a package deal on a cruise where staying here. After trying to get my brother in law in a month or so later he said they were giving out good prices so I rechecked and found the price had dropped considerably so instead of me paying $480 for 2 nights I got the rooms at $350.
I thought it was a credit crunch thing but clearly they are renovating. The web site photos are clearly what the hotel will be and not what it currently is or rather some parts of the hotel are renovated. The room was lovely which is really what counts I suppose. The hotel is , to be honest, OK for a one or two night stay but I would be sorely disappointed if this was my only hotel stay in this city.
Some people only want the basics, then this is fine. I want a hotel to make me feel special. I don't mean in a grovelly way, but I stay in hotels to get something different, to enjoy the facilities, to sit in the lounge bar, to watch the people. The lobby felt like a car park payment area and is in fact where you pay for the public parking next door too so not far off.
Nice small gym with modern equipment. This is a plus for me.
Very comfy bed (Huge Plus)
Iron and Ironing board in room (Huge Plus even if not used)
Tea and coffee making facilities (Huge Plus)
Cons (Not really many):
NO lounge area. This is a big negative for me as the 5 of us had nowhere to sit and chat when the rest of my party arrived without going into their bar and spending money.
The attached restaurant is nice enough with basic fare burgers, and fried food, not very imaginative. The caeser salad was nice enough if a bit overpriced once you had added protein. $6 for 6 prawns on a $10 plate of romaine lettuce is a bit steep.
So basically I think the hotel during it's transition phase is OK if you don't want any services from a hotel apart from a room and gym and can get the price I paid about $135 CAD a night. Any more an look elsewhere.
If I had this trip again I woulds have booked into the Hermitage before my cruise, I am staying here for 1 night after my cruise as it is more modern, is an apartment and is in a slightly better location for around the same price.
