“DOWNTOWN ST. JOHN'S”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed at The Quality Hotel recently. We booked one of their new executive rooms on the first floor. The front desk told us that these rooms had been renovated and had a fridge etc in the room. We were not disappointed, the room was modern and contemporary with an excellent view of the harbour. We really liked the décor. It was well worth the extra we paid for the upgrade.

We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly and even took time to chat when it was obvious they were busy.

It is hard to find parking in downtown St. John's (we found this out after hiring a car) but thankfully the Quality has an underground car park which is complimentary for their guests.

All in all our stay was most enjoyable and would certainly recommend this hotel to others, for it's location, convenience and over all service.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth upgrading

Decent view from our room and from the restaurant but not got much else going for it. Breakfast was decent but other food was average. Drink prices were average as well but donk expect your drink filled to the top.

Stayed at the Quality Hotel Harbourview for 3 nights, over a weekend, rooms were a bit dated, but very clean, hotel staff was friendly. Rumplestilskins restaurant is on site and a must, service is great and food is also Great. The hotel is located downtown St. John's, walking distance to most of the shops, George street, and Restaurants. overall a great stay for the price, would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view! we could see signal hill and the harbor activity was fun to watch!

St John's is ridiculously expensive. Just accept that likely wherever you stay during the summer month will be unbelievably expensive for what you get because that's just the market. And for goodness sakes - book ahead!! I called ten hotels before I found the last room at this place - mid-week. Friends there told me it will be like this June - Sept solid. I checked Hotwire and Priceline - nothing offered. Why would a hotel discount when it's a total sellers market?? So based on my booking experience, I was expecting the worst (at $170 /night). What I got was far from the worst.

The Quality Hotel was clean, reasonably updated (though an older property for sure), and somewhat basic. My room was in far better condition than the one I had in the supposedly-nicer Delta (stayed there a couple of months back) that would have cost me about $50 more a night. The indoor parking, Wifi, and local calls were included - the rate was high, but at least they didn't nickel-and-dime. The only real knock is the walls were a bit thin and it could have been quieter, but it wasn't awful. Without hesitation, i'd return here.

Room Tip: odd numbers face the harbour. It's a working harbour 24/7, so the evens may be quieter.

We stayed in the Harbourview for three nights and never came across a staff member who was less than courteous and friendly. The room was clean, the view of the harbour was breathtaking and the food at Rumplestiltskins was great.

Old St John's is a wonderful area - and this hotel is an excellent base to explore from.

We stayed 2 nights and the room was an average hotel room. The staff was very friendly and our room was made up before we returned from breakfast. The walk to George Street isn't bad but the wind was blowing and it was bitterly cold so we took a taxi the second night and with tip it was only $10 one way. The restaurant has wonderful breakfasts that are reasonably priced. Two eggs, ham,hash browns , toast and tea or coffee for $8.99 can't beat it. The view of the harbour from the lobby and the restaurant was really nice. We had problems with the heating unit being very loud but once it was brought to the staffs attention it was fixed right away. I would stay here again.
