The Good
This hotel was very well liked, especially for the great breakfast on site.

The rooms did not stand out in any way, but guests did find them well cared for, clean, quiet and offering a comfortable sleep. Some found them well equipped with a Keurig coffeemaker, a mini-fridge, a microwave, flat screen TV and a good selection of cable channels.

The delicious dining on site was the definite highlight, with many guests praising the breakfast buffets and Sunday Brunch. One guest put it like this: "Absolutely amazing breakfast included. Very seldom do you see the extensive buffet that these people put on. Stay there just to have breakfast!" 

Guests described the front desk agents as friendly and accommodating.

Guests seemed to like the location in the newer part of town. They found it handy to the highway, the airport and numerous city attractions.

A well-equipped fitness centre was another plus, although one guest suggested heavier dumbells would be nice.

The Bad
Negatives for the hotel seemed to be mentioned in passing as recent guests were typically quite pleased with their stays. Some said the hotel did not have that much curb appeal as it is in an older building.

Occasionally guests mentioned the higher room price for Fort McMurray, but guests overall seemed to appreciate the free amenities on site, namely the outstanding free breakfast buffet and fast free Wi-Fi. Some said this hotel compared well with others in the city for price.

While the public areas of the hotel seemed to be renovated, a few guests complained that the rooms were dated. Complaints in this regard were: water temperature kept changing in the shower, poor water pressure, loud showers, smelly and stained carpets, unattractive brown paint colour in the hallways, and rooms smelled of stale smoke.

Although the hotel is non-smoking, guests sometimes could smell smoke from cigarette and pot smokers in the hallways and wafting into their rooms.

Noise transfer was a factor for some. They complained of hearing footsteps in rooms above and their neighbours' conversations.
