The hotel's 711 guest rooms feature either one king or two queen-size pillow-top beds, 27-inch TVs with premium channels, pay-per-view movies and video check-out, plus coffeemakers, and cordless phones with voice mail. The rooms are in the process of being renovated. About 170 of the new 'Mode' rooms now feature flat screen TVs, new carpeting, new furniture, renovated bathrooms, and a 'Smartdesk' - a work desk with a panel for guests to plug in their computers and connect to the TV screen. The room renovations will be completed by 2014.

The hotel's location, with its interior connection to the metro and to the city's popular shopping area, and close proximity to the train station and to the highway, was cited as convenient by many guest reviewers.

Although the hotel received many positive comments about its staff, rooms and amenities, there were a few inconsistencies regarding these points, in the reviews used for this analysis.
A few guests described their rooms as old and outdated, although the majority of these appeared to have stayed in the rooms which have not yet been renovated. As well, some guests wrote in their reviews that there was mould in the bathrooms.
And while many guests enjoyed the heated indoor pool, particularly those looking to simply relax (or guests travelling with children), there were a few reviewers who described the pool as small and crowded and thus difficult for swimming laps.
While many guests enjoyed the revolving rooftop restaurant, some felt that it was overpriced for the quality of food and that it should be open 7 days a week rather than just on weekends.
A few other guest reviewers also had trouble connecting to the hotel's wireless Internet in the common areas and found the extra cost for wireless Internet in the rooms to be expensive.
