Great location, beautifully decorated.

Room was excellent, my boyfriend and I only found that the room was too hot! With the weather outside being -21, we turned down the heat in the room. We found we both tossed and turned because it was too hot. Otherwise great location, and amenities. Underground parking was a huge plus!

Stay with friends

We arrived very late to the hotel and it was extremely hot in our room -no a/c as advised but staff brought us 3 fans within minutes &extra towels too. It was close to central area but far enough away that it was quiet. Pool is almost like a hot tub but nice.

Overall, very good hotel and totally worth it

Location: the hotel is not in the deadcenter of downtown, but very close to it - 2 mins driving maybe or 10 min walking. There's a free bus you can take right in front of the hotel but not that frequent (every 45 mins?) The best part is its huge hotbu/jaccuzi (and a steamroom next to it). The worse is the Keg steakhouse onsite - its food is horrible - four of us all had very dry/tasteless steaks (despite the facts taht we all ordered medium to medium well) - it just ruined our impression of the Kegs (we eat at a different Keg before and it was wonderful).

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

do NOT do the wildlife safari tour which cocts $40+ per adult - it's a totally waste of time and money as they don't take you to where it should be so you end up seeing just a bird nest on top of a pole.Seriously.
