The Good
This hotel was enjoyed by its guests.

They liked the rooms. They were newer, well cleaned, spacious and had comfortable beds.

They liked the location. It was an easy walk to downtown, restaurants, pubs, the train station, BMO Centre, Saddledome, Stephen Avenue and the +15 Skywalk.

Staff were well liked. They were courteous and looking for ways to be helpful.

The buffet breakfast was well liked. It was generous, had a good variety of items and very good fresh waffles.

Guests felt this hotel offered good value with reasonable rates.

Also appreciated were: great city views from higher floors and the +15 skywalk was accessible from the parking garage.

The Bad
There was a little negative feedback found online.

Some were disappointed in the high cost of parking and that it was valet-only. There was no stopping in front of the hotel during morning and afternoon rush hour, but guests used the side street at that time.

Room complaints found were: small room, uncomfortable pillows, no bathrobes, no in-room safe, and the bedroom had no door.

Other comments found were: slow elevators, the breakfast area was crowded and lacked organization, no hot tub or restaurant on site, and confusing lobby on second floor.
