Check in was simple. Room was available at 4pm! Floor 2 room. Clean and no problems. Bathroom was cleaned and fully stocked. Even though it was busy it was not noisy. Would recommend. It was NYE so it was busy but all the staff was alert and assuring everyones safety.

We stay here when visiting family in the area, and find it to be a nice comfortable place. Cozy lounge and good food in the restaurant. Close to shopping etc. Will definitely stay here again.The pool was a bit over chlorinated and my hair got wrecked. Will not go in again.

It was very kind of you to take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to share your experience on Tripadvisor. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your loyalty. On the other hand, I will personally address the pool issue with our maintenance department.

Stayed at the hotel on business. Great location, within walking distance of the mall. Very eager to please. Will definitely come back for a leisurely stay next time when the St. Jacobs market is open.

There are much better hotels to stay at in Kitchener - Waterloo and I recommend those. If you do stay at the hotel, make sure to get in one of the updated rooms in the main building. Despite us specifically booking one of these rooms, we got stuck down in the back of the hotel where the rooms are run down, outdated and noisy. The front desk was not that concerned about addressing our concerns which just added to my disappointment here...

Room Tip: Ensure you book the rooms in the main building - the ones at the back are terrible.

This hotel is more for conferences and may not be for business travellers that would expect a quiter and slower environment after a hard day's work. I also find that it looks a bit dated in the lobby, swimming pool, exercise room including the rooms.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The staff in the bar and dining room are very helpful and friendly especially Aleisha who was great with our grandchildren. The room was large and the bed was comfortable.I only have one complaint but it was an annoying one.We stayed in room 474 and the tap on the bath and shower dripped constantly.It was actually more than a drip! It kept us awake at night and after reporting it to reception three times we realised nothing was going to be done.We ended up turning up the air conditioning and putting a sponge in the bath so that we wouldn't hear it.We found this puzzling as everything else about the hotel was just great.

Room Tip: We all stayed in the tower this time but I preferred the balcony room we had last time facing the ou...

The Holiday Inn and Convention Centre in Kitchener was one of the most disappointing place I have been in for quite some time. First, the location of the room was at the furthest reaches of the hotel. Second, the 2nd level floors had no elevator to get to them. Third, the cleanliness of the room was atrocious, the balcony door did not lock at all; the track for the balcony door was caked in mud and grime; had to kill 2 millipedes in the room. The room walls are wafer-thin. There is no convenience store in the hotel, and none around the hotel unless you go to the gas station across the street. Great water pressure in the tub but you end up with water all over the floor!

Room Tip: Best advice: eat the pizza in the restaurant but do not stay here!
