The Good
Guests really enjoyed this hotel.

Rooms were clean and well designed with comfy beds. Some rooms on the higher floors had great views.

Guests liked the Whyte Avenue location near shops, public transit, running trails and many restaurants.

Staff were genuinely friendly, attentive and very helpful.

The free breakfast was impressive and offered a wide variety including fresh-made smoothies, fresh pastries, oatmeal with toppings, fruit tray, cheese tray, yogurt, cappuccino, eggs, bacon, and sausage.

Guests also liked: Molton Brown bathroom toiletries, real cream for coffee in the room, and free wine and appetizers every night.

The Bad
There was some negative feedback.

Recent room complaints were: uncomfortable mattress and room was uncomfortably cold.

Noise transferred from: Whyte Avenue car traffic, sirens, musicians and clubs; the ice machine and the hotel’s ventilation system at the back of the hotel.

Parking was not always trouble free. Complaints included limited parking available for valet service and having to give 30- 45 minutes’ notice for valet to pick up the car. Self-parking was off site (one guest said 2 blocks), with the lot dimly lit, muddy and with potholes to avoid, according to some. There was also limited space at the hotel entrance for accessing the valet service.

Other comments found were: room rates a little pricey and no vending machines in the building for snacks and drinks (only a more expensive mini-bar in the room).
