The Good
This hotel was very well liked with great staff making the difference.

They really liked the rooms. They were new and modern, well cleaned, spacious and had comfortable beds.

The location was central. It was an easy walk to downtown restaurants, shops, the Saddledome, the BMO Centre, and the C-train station (which was free in that area of downtown).

Staff were very friendly and guests found them eager to please.

Many guests enjoyed the free hot breakfast on site, although there were a few naysayers in the reviews.

The Bad
There was very little negative feedback found online.

Some were disappointed in the high cost of parking and that it was valet-only.

Room complaints found were: the smell of sewer gas, housekeeping didn’t replace items needed, views of a construction site from some rooms, and room was a little small for a family of 5.
