The Good
Guests really liked this hotel.

Rooms were described as clean and well appointed with very comfortable beds. Some were impressed with soft music playing upon arrival, great HD cable channels, soaker tubs, good shower pressure, wall-to-wall windows and cozy fireplaces.

The location was well liked for being right downtown and handy to good restaurants, public transit, Jasper Avenue, the legislature and Rogers Place.

Guests found staff welcoming, kind and attentive.

Wildflower restaurant was enjoyed for quality food and good service. Wine and cheese receptions in the evenings provided a welcoming atmosphere and guests often liked this free perk.

The free breakfast was often described as excellent—hot, delicious with lots of choice.

Guests also liked: free ample parking, the area shuttle service and nice views from the higher floors.

The Bad
Overall there was not much of a negative nature in the reviews.

Recent room complaints: uncomfortable pillows, difficulty adjusting the room temperaturea nd windows don't open, a poor view, edge of bed frame stuck out, and room oddly configured with the bathroom door facing the bed.

Some were disturbed by noise from: the elevator, the stairs, heater fans, plumbing sounds and guests in nearby rooms and hallways.

Other comments found: no breakfast room service available, dining a little pricey, elevator issues and stairwells only led to outdoor exits.
