I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night with my two young adult daughters. I chose this hotel because it is new, and I was tired of staying in older hotels which are often shabby and dated. This hotel is located near highway 401, so it lacks appeal in its surroundings. It is l in a very commercial area, which means restaurants and a shopping outlet are adjacent, but don't expect a scenic view. Downtown is about a ten minute drive away. Parking is free. We heard no sounds from outside.
Our room was clean and nice. We had a king bed and a pull-out couch. Everything worked well. There is no bath, only a shower, and watch that you don't leave your bathing suit hanging on the hook behind the bathroom door when you leave. The coffee in the room is not worth your time, so go down to the lobby for complimentary coffee if you want some.
We used the pool and hot tub, which were clean and new. There were no change facilities other than a washroom, so you will probably want to change in your room before coming down.
The biggest disappointment was the "bistro", which was nothing more than a cafeteria in the main lobby with limited service and hours. I had paid extra for a full breakfast in the bistro, but it was self-serve with plastic cutlery (they were out of clean cutlery). Only two staff were working very hard to serve everyone on a Sunday morning, so there were some waits. Coffee was in a paper cup. Food was good, but it was not what I would describe as a "bistro" experience at all.
Staff was really friendly and helpful. Be prepared to make up your pull-out bed yourself. I asked for assistance with it, and the reaction was a little resistant. Nonetheless, when I persisted, they did provide the service promptly and the housekeeping staff were very friendly. I also got excellent service from housekeeping when I called to report that I had left my bathing suit behind.
I would recommend this hotel to families and people passing through. There were some hockey teams staying there, but the noise was minimal. It's not cheap, but hotels in Kingston are pretty pricey overall. If you want the character of Kingston, you might prefer to stay downtown on the water.
