The Good
This hotel was well loved by its guests many of whom gave it perfect scores.

It was well priced. It was very clean. The staff were friendly and efficient, providing a quick check-in. And guests liked having a free hot breakfast thrown in, which some considered "a notch above".

Other strong points were good Internet, lots of parking, and a nice saltwater indoor pool. One guest wrote, "I particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub which were very clean with ample towels for guests."

Other perks mentioned were: "Complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate always in the lobby." "Used the online check in (via HHonors) and it was great, able to book a room away from the elevators."

Regarding the location guests found it very accessible to EC Row expressway and bridge to USA and a convenient location with restaurants close by.

The Bad
Guests who were not as impressed usually had rooms that faced the highway. The hotel is situated quite close to Huron Church Road, a major north-south artery leading to the Ambassador Bridge to the US. 

Guests who had rooms that faced the highway often complained of road noise.  One guest put it like this, "noise from 401 was terrible. Hilton should be pushing to have the road repaired and smoothed in front of this hotel and this should help with the road noise." And another, "It is located on a busy street and the road noise is difficult to sleep through.The room shakes as trucks drive by."

Occasionally guests did not like the quality of the scrambled eggs or sausage at the free breakfast.

A few guests complained about a lack of a mini-fridge in their room.
