We had an excellent stay at this historic Inn. We stayed in the Miller Suite; one of the Inn's newly renovated/opened rooms. It was a cozy suite complete with a bedroom, bathroom, and living room with a lovely gas fireplace. It also had a balcony with a nice view. The suite had an old style charm complimented with modern amenities (e.g., flat-screen TV, wireless internet, etc.). The house-keeping staff did an excellent job because everything was very clean and well maintained before and during our visit.
The complimentary breakfasts were fantastic! They had something new every morning and everything was prepared to your preferences. It certainly wasn't your typical cookie cutter breakfast that leaves you hungry after 2 hours.
The location of the Frontenac Club Inn was superb! The Inn was situated downtown; this meant it was less than a 5 minute walk to a wide variety of restaurants, bars, the Lake Ontario waterfront, touristy areas, and other points of interest. Even though the Inn is situated near the downtown, in and around the Inn was quiet (i.e., little traffic noise, no loud businesses, etc.).
We would certainly recommend the Frontenac Club Inn to anyone who is interested in staying in a historic place that has all of the necessary modern amenities.
Some points to consider:
-If you are traveling with more than one vehicle or with a trailer, you will need to speak with the front desk before reserving a room as parking space is limited (i.e., enough for one vehicle for each room).
-The inn is geared towards couples and business travelers. It doesn't offer a lot to families with small children.
