The majority of comments reviewed for this analysis were positive, offering much praise for the hotel's staff, rooms and location.

Numerous reviewers were pleased with the level of customer service they received. They characterized the staff as competent, helpful and bilingual, and mentioned they provided "fast and friendly check-in".

The hotel's accommodations were a source of many compliments by guests. The rooms were described as clean, well equipped, and spacious, with comfortable beds and linens, modern decor and good water pressure. It should be noted however, that while the majority of reviewers were pleased with their rooms, a few guests complained of low lighting and poor ventilation in the winter months.

Several lodgers praised the hotel's location. They found it to be in the downtown area, easy to get to, as well as close to restaurants and shopping.

The Bad
While the majority of reviewers praised the hotel, some common complaints were noted, including the free breakfast and the value.

Several guests complained about the hotel's free breakfast. They found it to be limited in variety with no hot items, and 
were disappointed the hotel used disposable styrofoam plates instead of an eco-friendly option. It was also mentioned the breakfast room itself had uncomfortable chairs and tables.

Some reviewers were disappointed with the cost. These guests felt the rates were too high for what was offered, citing the hotel's lack of restaurant, the limited breakfast and the paid indoor parking as factors which impeded upon the hotel's worth.
Booking.com guest reviews rated the hotel 8.7 out of 10 from 145 reviews.
