"Not a hockey fan."

"Our second night stay in our room was noisy, people were coming in at 2am banging and causing alot of noise. There was a hockey tournament in town that weekend so I guess it was to be expected."

"good but not great!"

"the people that work there were great, the restaurant was super, however the elevator was down and i think it has been for a bit - the pool was quite dirty perhaps difficult to keep clean in the summer with all the kids but a better effort could be made and no gym - yes a day pass to good life is given BUT that isn't on site is it"

The service is great, front desk staff are helpful and friendly, and we love the convenience of the Perkins restaurant. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location on Paris St. is ideal as you can quickly get to anywhere in the city. Thanks for always being there for us."
