Stayed at Novotel Hamilton last night. Have stayed there several times over the past few years - probably the nicest large hotel in Hamilton, in my opinion. Last night was as good as always. Rooms are fresh and clean and modern. Comfy beds, great location ( walking distance to loads of cool bars, cafes and restaurants). Pillow menu is fun. Valet parking is $20, or $15 to drive round yourself. I thought internet access was pretty pricey ($15 for 2 hours), but needed it for work, so did it anyway. Didn't eat at the hotel at all.
Bathroom is small but fine. Lots of space for putting out cosmetics, etc. I think most rooms have shower over bath. Limited cosmetics supplied - just soap, shampoo and body wash.
I booked via Wotif and got a decent rate. Called the hotel to see if I could get as good rate via my Accor members card - was more expensive and Accor booking was unwilling to match Wotif (?) so in end just booked via Wotif. I thought this was strage as most hotels prefer direct booking. Anyway, maybe that was why I had to pay for internet and parking, etc.
Would stay again and would check prices and whether parking/internet included in rate.
