Updated Oct 27, 2014
Overview
Located off Highway 54 and roughly a 30-minute drive to Niagara Falls' city centre, the Best Western Plus Rose City Suites is well-suited to both business and vacation travellers who require extended-stay suites with separate bedrooms and kitchenettes.

This hotel has 68 air-conditioned suites, all of which offer a separate bedroom with one queen or two double beds, free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a kitchenette, a living room with a sofabed, a desk, a hairdryer, and an iron and ironing board. 
Hotel amenities include a business centre, a fitness room, meeting/conference space, and free parking. Pets are not permitted and accessible rooms are available upon request.

A free buffet breakfast with hot and cold selections is offered daily to all guests, and other nearby restaurants include Bamboo Restaurant and Blue Star Restaurant, which can both be found within a 3-minute drive southeast of the hotel.

Seaway Mall is a 10-minute drive north, while Merritt Island Park is roughly a 7-minute drive northeast. Welland Historical Museum is about a 20-minute walk northeast and Sobey's grocery store is an 8-minute drive northwest. Niagara Falls' city centre and Niagara Region Airport (YCM) can both be reached in about a 30 to 35-minute drive northeastward. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Good
The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with praise going to the hotel's rooms, location, and staff.

Many guests were pleased with the accommodations at this hotel. They described their rooms as spacious, clean, well-equipped, and modern, with comfortable beds and nice views of the Welland Canal. It should be mentioned however, that some lodgers felt the carpets should be replaced.

The hotel's location was praised by numerous reviewers. These patrons found the hotel to be close to the highway, downtown Welland, Welland Canal Trail (located behind the hotel), and within driving distance to many tourist attractions in both Welland and the Niagara Fall region.

Several lodgers paid compliments to the hotel's staff. They were characterized as friendly and helpful, with one guest mentioning the staff were "prepared to help in every way".

The hotel's included breakfast was also positively mentioned by many guests. The variety of both hot and cold items was praised, and these reviewers found it to be well-stocked and replenished regularly.

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of complaints among them.

Some guests complained of noise disturbances while at the hotel. They reported hearing other guests overhead while in rooms on lower floors, maids in the early morning, and one guest complained of a loud vending machine outside his room. However, it should be noted that most guests reported that their rooms were quiet.

"Poor internet availability, poor problem-solving skills"

"The reason that I was staying at this hotel was for school, however throughout my stay I was unable to access the internet in my room. I spent over two hours working with the tech people on the phone, using bridging and USB adapter devices,and nothing worked. All of the equipment they tried said it was defective and they never offered me to switch to a new room."

"Nice surprise"

"Very nice surprise when we walked into the room - wasn't expecting the nice lay out. Nicely decorated. The lady at the counter never informed us about where, or if, or what time the continential breakfast was - we found out on our own (just about missed it)."

"Was disappointed to learn that another friend who I referred to the hotel a couple of days later got a significantly lower rate than your web based rate. WOuld have expected a continental breakfast available, as is the custom for other lower priced hotels in the same area. Indtead has a full service, rather expensive breakfast service. Otherwise Hotel was very nice and was very accomodating for our late checkout request."
