Editor's Analysis
Updated on May 7, 2014
Located about a 3-minute drive south of Hwy 401 and about a 9-minute drive to the downtown Kingston area, this hotel is set among a cluster of hotels, restaurants and shops in the north end of Kingston. This hotel is popular with travellers who want accommodations close to the 401.

All of the 128 rooms at this hotel are smoke free and have free Wi-Fi, free wired Internet, a microwave, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Guests can choose between rooms with 2 queen beds or larger king bed rooms with a pull out sofa. Pets are not permitted at this hotel.

Guests can dine on site at Bistro, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. There are also a number of restaurants located within a 5-minute walk of the hotel. On-site amenities include free parking, an indoor pool with a waterslide (waterslide only open for use on Friday, Saturday and Sunday), a hot tub and a gym. 

With the exception of King's Crossing Outlet Shopping Centre, which is about a 1-minute walk away, many of Kingston's points of interest are nearby this hotel, but guests will need access to a car to get to most of them. Queen's University is about an 11-minute drive away. Bellevue House (former home of Sir John A MacDonald) and Fort Henry (originally built during the war of 1812) are a 13-minute and a 14-minute drive away respectively.

For travellers arriving by air, Norman Rogers Airport (YGK) is about a 20-minute drive away. Train passengers will have a shorter drive, about 7 minutes. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

Confirmed with a front desk agent: Wi-Fi, wired Internet and parking (call date: September 17, 2012).

Wayne from Ottawa, ON CA rated Courtyard Hotel Highway 401 Kingston 7 out of 10 on April 29, 2012 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The Hotel was good, nice room and staff. The breakfast was poor and overpriced. Having to stand in line to pay $12.95 for Buffet Breakfast, served on paper plates and plastic cutlery(!), and with very limited choices for food."
