    The breakfast was excellent. Not your typical “breakfast included” at hotels. It is made-to-order where you can choose off a menu with lots of variety and healthy choices. I would come here for breakfast any day!!

    When we arrived at the hotel they did not have a our reservation immediately. I did not receive any savings by booking through Booking.com. When the hotel could not find the reservation they offered the same rate.

    Breakfast was great, the bed was really nice, by the way who was the manufacturer of the bed?

    In future, I won't book and pre-pay with booking.com as I discovered that other families we travelled with were paying considerably less for a larger room than we were given. Very upsetting to us.

    This was an excellent property. The coffee in dining room was great. The pillows also very comfortable The staff could not have been nicer in the breakfast area and I felt very comfortable there

    The bathroom design was poor. No towel racks to comply with suggestion for housekeeping and too tight to use the door appropriately. Ironing board not secured in closet and a hazard. Hair dryer inconveniently stored. Carpeting and drapes were stained.

    The workers in the Bistro were friendly and responsive. The lounge areas were lovely.

    The gym was to basic and poorly designed. Also, breakfast should be incorporated into the price of the stay.

    The Hot tub and indoor pool was a great way to start and end the day.

    We went for 2 week-end of shopping, 2-night stay in Amherst. Close to Boulevard Mall, easy to get in and out of, free parking, good wifi, comfortable beds, quiet, very clean. We had breakfast in the lobby's cafe, a tiny but pricey but excellent food and coffee - so not a rip-off. Close to several dining options, perfect for a couple of Canadians stocking up on US bargains.

    The bathroom could have been cleaner. I found loose hairs on the floor when I entered the bathroom. Also, the shower curtain had a large yellow stain on it.

    Very spacious. Comfortable seating. Loved the fluffy bed! Room service was very quick! The hotel is close to many attractions also. So it's good.

    I don't understand why housekeeping knocked both mornings when I have the "do not disturb" sign hanging on door handle? The first day the door was actually unlocked by housekeeping and the physical lock is what kept them out. The second day they simply knocked and left after a "no thank you". I just wish they'd not knock at all which wakes us up if the sign is out there! Other than that, place is a great stay! :)

    Always clean and cozy!. Requested room away from noisy places like elevator and it was done. :)
