This hotel was a little tricky to find due to one way roads. However in our driving around, we found a parking lot around the corner for $5 flat rate (no matter how long the stay) as opposed to $20/night parking at hotel. Fantastic! The location of this hotel is ideal, we were there for a concert and this was a 5 minute walk. There wasn't much else around though, the one shopping area at the cruise port was a disappointment (although it was neat to see the cruise ship so close up). We walked around for quite a while and didn't find anything of interest to do.
The room we got was great, we had a nice view of the harbour. The bed was super comfortable but very high. The bathroom was fine. The restaurant was expensive so we did not eat there. There is a Starbucks and a sports bar just down the road in front of the arena. The sports bar was great (Champions).
All in all, a nice hotel and a great location if you can get it for a decent price and eat elsewhere!
