Reviewed February 2, 2007

Through work we were staying 3 nights in Chatham. When I checked their website I just loved their décor. I phoned 2 weeks in advance but my first two choices of rooms were already booked. The staff recommend the Sky as a calm room.

The Sky has cathedral ceiling in the bathroom with a sky light. The shower is totally awesome. Three shower heads. One is the stationary kind with the adjustable head, one was hand held with the adjustable head and the other was from two parallel bars with pin hole water spouts. That was like having a massage. Could have spent hours in that shower. There was even a chair in shower.

Light to medium coloured wood is my choice over the darker colours. The whole room was done in "light pine" (I don't know woods). Had a kitchen area with sink, microwave, fridge, toaster and coffee maker and all the utensils glasses and dishes.

The bed was huge and comfortable. WiFi connection helped me stay in touch with the family.

The last night we were there we went to check out each others rooms. A colleague is an avid reader and loves books. Her room was the Study and she loved it. Suited her to a tee. They were all special. Wish I could have seen my first two choices, but maybe next time. Next I'll try for the Sky as my first choice.

The staff bent over backwards to help. As I sat in train station l could not find my ticket. Calling the hotel I asked if it was left in my room, which it was. I asked that they send it over by taxi, but one of the staff jumped in their car and got it to me in time for the train. Never have I seen that level of service anywhere I've been.

Totally unique, totally awesome.

First of all, I must say, I am a resident of Chatham. I LOVE the Retro Suites hotel. Historic downtown needed a place like this!
With names like 'Chantilly lace with a naughty face', how could they go wrong?

The staff is just amazing, and they will go out of thier way to please you.
I stayed there on my rehearsel dinner night, as well as the wedding night.

Check in is supposed to be at 3 pm, but when we told them that we were getting married, and I'd like to get ready in the suite (to get some nice pics) they were more than happy to let us in early. No extra charge, no fuss at all.
I had 15 ppl come up to my room at seperate times when getting ready for pics and such and they were very kind to everyone, and even played along with jokes and were carefree.

Check in, and check out, were a breeze, and they even did the room up for us with rose petals on the floor and bed for us for the wedding night.

Check this place out when you're passing through .. or make a trip just to see it, you won't regret staying at this hotel!!

Stopped in Chatham on the way from Toronto to Chicago. The young girl at the local information booth recommended we stay at the Retro Suites (her words were 'totally awesome').

The hotel has a very distinct facade you cannot miss. The fun really starts inside: the hotel feels a little like a contemporary art gallery with great volumes, giant mural paintings, carefully designed lighting, etc...

All rooms are decorated in a different way, we arrived on a quiet day and were able to visit many of them before we chose the one we wanted to stay in. We chose one of the 99$ room and it was large, had a great bead, and a great bathroom (really, I wish I had one like that at home).
The staff was particularly charming and caring.

We were just passing thru Chatham so I don't know what else the town has to offer. I highly recommend staying at retro-suites when in the general area.
