"I booked the Sheraton for my parents 50th wedding anniversary after our surprise celebration for them. They informed me that the room was outstanding the the view from their hotel room was spectacular. The staff were great. I had the opportunity to communicate via email and telephone with Laura Koch she was amazing. Thank you for a very memorable stay for my mom and dad"

Verified Guest from Kanata, ON CA rated Sheraton Hamilton Hotel 3 out of 10 on September 25, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"We stayed at the hotel for one evening to attend a wedding in the local area so did not need many of the facilities. We had requested a non-smoking room, but it had a definite smell of smoke in it. The room was fine, the linens were lovely, but the cost of the hotel was far too expensive for what was in reality just a basic room."

"The bed in the room was great. It really was comfortable and it even looked comfortable.The restaurant was also very good for the breakfast that I had there. I thought the lounge was a little old and poorly maintained.The appearance of the lounge did not seem to be in line with the rest of the hotel."
