Great Hotel

Very warm yet professional staff at this great hotel. It's easily walkable to the waterfront, and downtown areas but on the edge so a bit quieter. The art is outstanding in the common areas and in the room. Very clean, and comfortable. I will stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Shop for a parkade before you check-in. There are many around that area and most are cheaper than the hotel's

diamond in the rough

hotel location was great. from the street, you would not know that there was a top-notch hotel buried within. the reason for the 4-start instead of a 5 is because the beds were a bit uncomfortable for my taste. better mattresses are needed.

Nice, clean, central

Decent amenities, clean and good value. While the rooms aren't the most spacious or the most gorgeously appointed, two 2xqueen rooms were spacious enough for our family of 2 teens, 2 smaller ones and my wife and I. The front desk staff were helpful and accommodating -- the only exception being the dining room staff who were somewhat curt. Parking at the hotel is expensive (appx. $25/night) -- and the only option is valet.
