Everything was perfect. From the time I received a phone call asking what time I would be arriving with my guests until we checked out the next day. Friendly staff, excellent service and the hotel is well located. Will be back again.

Room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. Breakfast was extensive and tasty. Location (near Waterfront, mall and restaurants) is perfect. Parking is great, but could be better indicated. Staff is friendly.

Very informative staff, places to dine and surroundings ares. Was pretty shocked we got locked out of our room on checkout. Breakfast is served from 9-11 but checkout time is 10, quite weird that we are forced to eat breakfast before 10 otherwise our luggage gets locked inside the room, that is the only thing I will fault.
