Junior suites also have one king or queen bed, a bathrobe for each guest, and a desk, while executive rooms also include a separate seating area, a water cooler, a mini fridge, and a microwave.

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them, which included difficulty finding the hotel along with concerns about parking, noise, and the layout of the furniture in the rooms.

Some guests had difficulty finding the hotel and its parking. They were disappointed that there was nowhere for them to park outside the front doors while unloading and checking in, and that they had to pay for parking outside the hotel first and then again at the hotel once they had checked in. 

A few reviewers had complaints about noise during their stay. They described being woken up by a neighbour's alarm clock, hearing ship noise from the harbour, doors slamming in the hallways, and the in-room fridge being noisy.

The layout of the furniture was a source of concern for a few guests. They complained that the coffeemakers were located in the bathrooms and that the layout of the sitting furniture in relation to the TV was not very convenient.
