Loved the Fort Howe for it's weirdness. The hotel has a creepy feel to it but once I got into the atmosphere I began to appeciate the 80's swinger vibe. The room was dirty (especially the bathroom) but the beds were very comfortable and everything was in good repair. The staff (especially the front desk!) were awesome and great to deal with. Breakfast seemed overpriced but when we recieved our food it was a huge portion and very good. Awesome location, especially for getting around the downtown core on foot. Good prices especially with free parking included. With a little updating and better housekeeping standards, the Fort Howe could be a real gem.
