Holiday Inn Barrie Hotel & Conference Centre
Ranked #12 of 19 Hotels in Barrie
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Was there for two nights and had rented 2 conference rooms as well. All hotel amenities were great, then staff were friendly and helpful. The porter looking after the hotel was fantastic and the best service I have had when renting a conference room. Will definitely return.

On Mon. May 12th., my husband and I decided to dine at the Tattinger restaurant located within the Holiday Inn, Barrie. We were married there 35 years ago to the day and thought it would be nice to return, see the changes and relive wonderful memories. During conversation with our waitress, Jenny, we mentioned why we were there. She spoke to the Food and Beverages Manager, Joseph Shinto, who offered us complimentary appetizers and later accompanied us on a tour around the premises, including the room in which we were married and the adjoining room where we had our reception.

We thoroughtly enjoyed our evening. Our waitress was attentive but not too much so, the food was delicious and plentiful and we were left to spend time to quietly reminisce. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better anniversary dinner.

Stayed for two nights and had a room in the tower block, overlooking the 'courtyard'. Very quiet. Room was spotless. Appreciated the newer fridge for food and drink storage, and it has a very quiet operation. Restaurant was also very clean and the service was very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to highway noise, be sure to ask for a room away from the highway side.

This is a good hotel, well located, close to the highway, so it was perfectly located for my needs. The room was adequate and the pool was closed.
My biggest concern is that on the last night of our stay, sometime between 2 and 5am someone accessed my account information in the rewards program and used that info to book a room in the HI express nearby.
After I pointed this out, the Manager on Duty said they would fix the problem. They did restore my points but I have no idea if they followed up on the thief.
