The hotel overall could use a complete update. Carpets are dull, wallcoverings are dated, elevator floors and walls are dirty.
We were very lucky that we were able to get an upgrade to the club level (17th floor) which was quieter, and the rooms a bit more spacious, than the other floors. The hotel was full to capacity, mostly with families with kids (sports events going on in the area), and very noisy, with kids running through the halls and making noise. The pool area was also full of kids, and needed attention (cleaning). We have nothing against kids, but to see a filthy pool turned us off, so we didn't use the pool during our stay.
There is a lounge on the 17th floor that serves a continental breakfast, which was included with our upgrade. But we're not sure what people on the other floors were doing for their breakfast.
We paid allot for this hotel stay, definitely not a good value. In addition, they charged us $10 per day for parking, which is in a grungy underground lot. This lot is always full to capacity, and so we had to park quite far from the elevator that takes you to the hotel. We had to make several trips with our luggage, through a mall and food court, to get to the hotel. They also wanted to charge extra for internet.....so we just said no thanks, and had to do without.
As for the general surrounding area itself.....I would never return. There were very few restaurants and other ammenities in the neighbourhood. Swiss Chalet was the only thing open within walking distance.....how much chicken could we eat in 3 days?!?? We arrived late at night on a Friday night (9 pm), and just wanted to find a small bite and dessert after we finished checking in.....the only thing open was a Tim Hortons! Considering that this is the downtown hub of Hamilton, it's really sad.
