Some areas of this hotel are very seedy, some are very nice. The lobby area is small and very dark. Breakfast is adequate but there is no where to eat it. Very few chairs in the lobby area. The washroom on the lobby level is awful! Part of the adjacent night club, it looks like the back stage set of Gypsy. The beds and rooms are lovely but the pillows are awful.
The odor of smoke permeates the halls, but not in the rooms.
Stayed here for one night during a long roadtrip so my expectations were few. I had a couple of concerns from reviews here, but literally nowhere else (within reason) to stay the night!
First of all, the hotel is definitely old and showing it's age. Although the lobby maintains it's charm, the hotel hallways are 40 year old, dizzying patterned carpet and smell like stale smoke. As for the rooms, again, the carpets are old (clean, but showing wear and tear) and very dated. The bathrooms will probably upset most people who want 'modern hotel bathroom' as they are small, water stains and peeling wallpaper. Don't get me wrong, they are clean and totally adequate but definitely not a spa experience! Beds were basic, no concerns but again, nothing special either.
The pros include a continental breakfast (good coffee, toast, yogurt, cereal etc) and a fitness room and pool (be warned, the fitness area is in the same spot as the pool and it's roughly 25C and 100% humiditiy down there!) and the customer service was great. We didn't try the restaurant
Biggest concern is there is a night club LITERALLY attached to the lobby. We stayed on a tues night but on the weekend I guarantee there is noise for anyone staying on that side of the hotel.
At the end of the day, for $130/nt you can get newer, better rooms.
Shower head had a brown ring around it, tiles where dirty; wallpaper was peeling at the edges, bubbling up at the seams and was ripped all over the room. I found leftover 'personal items' in the night stand that should have really been cleaned out. The wood trim (doors/windows) looked really old and was in serious need of a paint job. I was told that I could not use the fitness centre (at 8:15am) nor could I have a 30 minute late checkout (i.e., 11:30am) because they had a wedding reception later that day.
This hotel is like a castle !! Very antique-like feel , cozy and comfortable ! Beautiful Lobby and very quaint rooms ... Bathrooms are adorable ! Definetely a different feel then a regular hotel, but in a good way !
Was leary when making this reservation for a Saturday night, as I had read the other comments about the night club, but we were very pleasantly surprised. This hotel has been around for along time but you can see where they have made renovations. The lobby was cozy and elegant. Checking in was quick and the staff very friendly. Our room was an executive king room, and for the price, was a bargain. The furniture looked newer and the bed linens were comparable to any chain hotel. The bed itself was very comfortable and the room was super clean. It would have been nice to have a small fridge and microwave in the room, but wasn't necessary. From what I understand, some of the rooms have it and you can request it upon check in. As for the night club, we didn't hear a peep. We had a great sleep. This hotel is very close to all the box stores, mall and lots of restaurants. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to save a few dollars on a room and still wanting to be near lots of amenities.
