The Good
Guests had mixed opinions of the hotel overall, but some guests found the hotel serviceable.

Guests described their rooms as generally clean and decent for an overnight stay.

Guests liked the location. It was downtown and handy to access business offices, the hospital and events being held downtown.

Not many spoke of the staff, but occasionally a guest would say they were pleasant or friendly.

The restaurant on site is run by other management and offers very well-liked fine dining. 

Occasionally, guests were pleased with the free breakfast which included hot items and fresh waffles.

The Bad
There were a lot of complaints about this hotel.

Some guests were not able to park on site. They had to park a half block away at meters due to the outdoor lot being small and taken up by restaurant patrons.

The free hot breakfast seemed chaotic recently. Many guests had poor experiences of coming and finding no hot items or a very limited selection. Some complained about the food quality, the lack of seating and the breakfast attendant.

There were many complaints over the datedness of the hotel, the lack of proper cleanliness and of maintenance issues. Guests often said the floors in the elevator, hallways and lobby were dirty or filthy. Some complained of garbage or unfinished meals that were left in the hallway and not cleaned up promptly.

Many found hard mattresses and small, square or lumpy pillows.

Guests complained of noise disturbances from: loud neighbours and children yelling, fire alarms, drunks knocking on doors, and traffic from the street.
