The Bad
Many guests thought that this hotel was beginning to show its age and was in need of upgrades. 

Reviewers described worn and dirty carpeting, dated furniture, thin and worn linens, and climate control equipment not working properly. A couple of guests said that the common areas of the hotel appeared recently renovated and they suggested that those renovations should have extended to the guest rooms as well.

Soundproofing was also an area of concern for some guests. A few reviewers said that they were disturbed in their rooms by noise from neighbouring rooms, while a couple of other guests found street traffic and sounds from a nearby railway station to be disruptive. A couple of other reviewers complained about noise disturbances created by large groups of guests, such as wedding parties or hockey teams.

A few guests experienced water flow problems in guest room bathrooms. Reviewers described poor water pressure and toilets that did not re-fill properly. 

Contrary to some positive comments regarding value for money and value added amenities, a couple of reviewers thought that this hotel did not offer good value for the money they spent.
