Stayed for one night while travelling from Toronto to Quebec City. I wasn't sure what to expect from this hotel as we usually stay in 4 and 5 star hotels but I was very surprised at the quality of the room and public areas. I believe the hotel is quite new which I'm sure helped, but the room was large with a big bed, sofa, TV and kitchen area with a desk and table. Room was clean and new looking, and has free wifi. My only gripe is the small bathroom. The hotel includes breakfast but I did find this a bit of a free for all - no set tables and collect your own cutlery. The selection wasn't huge either.
The hotel itself is nice but a bit bland - didn't really stand out too much decor wise but was, as I said before, new and smart looking.
Location was reasonable - only a 5 minute walk into the town centre. Paying more for a water view is a bit pointless - it's not the most inspiring stretch of water but you do get a nice view of the wind farm on Wolfe Island, if that's your sort of thing!
It was expensive for what it was though - the UK/Canadian dollar exchange rate wasn't in our favour and I HATE that most North American hotels charge for parking - they own the car park too (in this case a parking garage in the basement) so why charge guests to use it? Only $12 per night but still very cheeky. I could get an equivalent hotel in the UK for half to two-thirds the per night price of this one so it wasn't great value for money. Saying that, I would choose Residence Inn again but i'd be intrigued to know what a less recently built (or not recently refurbished) hotel would be like.
