Stayed 3 nights in a superior room during our wedding trip. When we arrived, we were advised there is no self park available, so the CAD 25 valet parking is obligatory. We arrived at 2.30 PM and were advised that international check-in time is 3 PM, so had to go for a walk.
Our room was small, but clean and nice. The safe was not working properly during our entire stay. On the first morning, I left my pj's in bed; quite a challenge to recover them by the day we left; without appologies or so. (and they even lost my handkerchiefs...). They offer nice l'Occitane products in your bathroom, but they're so sparing with them; I didn't get a refill during my 3 days, although I finished them up. Internet access is really expensive for this type of hotel. The Opus bar is self-advertised as the place to be seen, but ehhhh, I'm afraid that goes back to times long gone (although the hotel only opened in 2002); all we saw were very typical tourists like us and some American students, and part of the staff was very unattentive. At check-out, there were 3 nights of accommodation on my bill, although fully pre-paid.
On the positive: the only hotel during our honeymoon that did something special: they put a large bottle of VOSS water in our room, some top chocolates and a greeting card. The hotel's location is SUPER, and their dining suggestions are TOP (Tojo's for Japanese, Blue Water Cafe for Seafood) and they have a complimentary limousine service for their guests, meaning a nice Mercedes S-Class brings you around town free of chrage.
My conclusion: the Opus doesn't come up to the mark and should work on the details. My advice: if you can book a promotion, don't hesitate!
