      • The location was perfect and the Hotel staff were very nice and polite. The ladies at the front desk were very accomodating and the room was very spacious, clean and comfortable.

      • Friendly and excellent location, nice atmosphere, great Price. Very good helping staff and clean rooms. Lots of pillows as well, breakfast wonderful.

        The hotel is under construction and the main floor facilities are dirty, service was poor considering is a hospitality industry. Beds worse than a pile of hay.

      • The location was excellent, bed was comfortable, room was clean and nice basic decor, service upon leaving was very good. The hot tub was not hot at all.

        Hotel feels too business like, not very warm and inviting, poor staff. No complimentary breakfast.

      • The view is nice and hotel location is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and clean, modern and quiet, the service in restaurant leaves a bit to be desired as well.

        Just not a professional impression at the front desk overall, local phone calls not free and pillows not comfortable. No continental breakfast available, poor swimming pool.

      • The location is very convenient and hotel could do better by displaying tourist info. The trio staff are great and rooms are good. No fridge is a bummer as well.

        Comfortable and poor service, internet rather slow, le restaurant est presente comme un excellent restaurant.

      • Quiet and convenient for Byward Market and rideau canal, location is great. Hotel is well maintained, the staff at the front desk are superb and the room is big and super comfortable.

        Poor value, the parking fee is really expensive and tv reception not the best due to the renovation work happening on the floor above. The gym is kind of small.

      • The location was perfect, overall the stay was very pleasant and the Lobby was very modern, clean, welcoming. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and bright. Also the fresh squeezed orange juice was not fresh juice, all in all, the price was good for the product I received.

        Toilet in awkward position, canal Ice was bad and tv picture was poor quality. The bed was uncomfortable and breakfast Buffet was expensive. Eggs were over cooked.

        The hotel is more expensive than other compArable hotels and another mirror and outlet in the sitting room would have been beneficial.

      • The location is amazing and the hotel is well located in the centre of all of the local sites. A price list and warning for the bar fridge and water bottles above would be nice also.

        The staff were unhelpful, the only downside to the room was that the bed was very uncomfortable.
