Interesting downtown core, with historic buildings Handsmaid’s Tale and Murdoch Mysteries, among other shows have filmed here. The Idea Exchange just opened after a multi-millions renovation. Check out the glass addition over the river!

Some beautiful old building's and some up and coming restaurants. Unfortunately there are some questionable areas. Nice along the river

No good restaurants for a reasonable price. The traffic is horrible and most of the stores are closed. There is way too many crackheads around the north side of the downtown core. I don't feel safe here

Galt is my hometown so I'm a little biased perhaps but it is a lovely quaint town with pretty much everything you'd ever need right at your fingertips. The Grand River runs through the downtown centre separating "the West Side" from the East Side. Churches...More

Not sure what hotel you are reviewing, but I agree with BirdBrain's comments. Lots of choices locally. Just to add to the list is the Cambridge Hotel.
