It was an excellent stay. Our room was perfect, the staff amazing and the view well worth the cost. With a view of the canal and the lift bridge every time a ship came through we would sit on our deck and watch. We will be back next year for our anniversary as it was on our honeymoon.

In a time where staffing shortages are the norm the people here were super friendly and helpful.

Great location. Staff were very friendly at front desk.

The property was in a perfect spot walking distance from everything you need and see.

Great location, lots to do and see in the area. Loved the front porch and the outside seating on the canal walk. Fun place to stay.

Beautiful view, spacious room. Pillows a bit lumpy, but otherwise quite comfortable. On-site dining was closed, but several options nearby.

It was a great location.

The front desk personnel was friendly, helpful, and kind. the Continental breakfast attendees were HORRIBLE. They were rude and loud when talking with us. During our stay in the hotel, they were many children (Hokey tournament). These kids were incredibly loud, yelling and running in the hall of the hotel until very late (1:30 AM). The parents were "worse": they were drunk and using horrible language in front of kids and guess. We had to go you our room and lock ourselves in the room. We did not go outside because the weather was very bad (rainy and wind of 30 MPH). THe canal was closed.

Excellent location. Staff and facilities were great.

Very conveniently located within walking distance from the pier, restaurants, museum, etc.

Great location for Bulldog hockey games at Amsoil arena!

Location is perfect for canal park. Breakfast is better than most.

We were able to see the ships come in the canal right from our room. Convenient location to the canal shops and restaurants.
