Location. One of us was taking flight to Vancouver next morning so location was perfect. Laundry facility was a huge bonus.
We were a party of 3 for 1 night. Hotel does not provide cots so 1 of us was a little uncomfortable on a jury-rigged bed made of 2 chairs and a luggage rack.
We have stayed here once before and really love the professionalism of the front desk person. The rooms are nice and clean and comfortable very quiet. Enjoyed being close to the waterfront and lots of shops around. This is definitely our favourite hotel to stay at when we want a get a away! Thank you to your great staff!
Very informed and prompt service in the evening and the morning. House cleaning was very polite and friendly. This was a memorable touch and should be encouraged.
The late arrival parking is poor. Though the facility has a plan and a program for late arrivals the issue can certainly be security.
room was very comfortable. we were on the water side, lovely view. The patio outside was very nice as we met other family out there that were also staying at the hotel
The fact that we booked in May for a stay in July and we were charged on our credit card immediately in May. The restaurant closes too early on Sunday.
Very good sea view and friendly staff
Not very stable wifi
The guy at the front desk late night was excellent.
the bouncy floors in the second floor hallways
Parking there was none, I was able to park on a side street because it was Saturday and Sunday, if it had been a week day, will I don't know
The staff at the Deep Blue Restaurant was amazing. I instantly connected with her. She made a suggestion for dinner that was not only delicious, but perfect for my appetite. She offered me a large glass of water with ice which was a welcomed offering after a long hot day.
My only complaint was that I kept stubbing my toe on the chair closest to the washroom.
Location - close to conference centre and shops Good wifi Upgrade to junior suite Comfy bed
Only one person working the breakfast. In a hurry and service took forever as server was completely overwhelmed trying to take orders, bring food, keep coffee cup filled, and take payments.
Staff was tremendous! Very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The building is old and has a lot of character. Lobby is updated and beautiful.
The building is old, so it smells a bit musty.
Poor choice of food in the restauant which,together with the bar,closed very early in the evening.
Good view, comfortable room.
Parking is isolated from the hotel around the corner, with choice of stairs or unacceptable walk on city streets, especially after hours and next to public parks. Difficult for handicap. No help offered by staff.
Hallways have a old building odor/smell - unpleasant
Although this is an older building it is a very comfortable property. The room I was in was a little small but not uncomfortably so. Look forward to returning again.
Location by the waterfront
Very poor choice of meals from the menu. Overpriced.
little bit expensive for what you got. We booked last minute and thought there might be deals but it was not a great deal
All the above, very pleasant staff.
The fire alarm went off at about 2:30 a.m. I would have gotten a free breakfast because of the inconvenience, but met with my family instead.
The dining room was excellent for breakfast
The dinning room menu for dinner was little more than a "Pub food" - very limited.
The view was beautiful. Everything was clean & welcoming.
