The Good
Guests enjoyed these quiet and well-equipped apartment-style suites.

Rooms were very clean, spacious, and well equipped with comfy beds. The 2-bedroom suites also offered 2 separate bathrooms that were perfect for co-workers on a business trip.

Location was quiet, on the bus route and an easy walk to groceries, a Starbucks, big box shopping and restaurants.

Staff were well liked—super friendly and helpful.

Guests considered the hotel to provide good value.

Guests also liked: lots of room in the heated underground parking, building was secure and laminate floors in the rooms

The Bad
There was some negative feedback.

Recent room complaints found: room was too warm, couch needed vacuuming, heated floors were too warm, and heating/air conditioning is only in the 2nd bedroom and temperature was difficult to regulate in the entire suite.

Noise transferred from: rooms above and through the walls of the suite.

Other comments found were: small breakfast room, breakfast was limited, no real lounge as no liquor license, and front door buzzer provides awkward entry as it does not work when the reception staff are on the phone.
