Booked on Priceline, and the front desk guy announced it a little too loudly for my taste while he was checking the details of my booking. The front desk staff were very courteous and efficient, and they gave me a room with 2 double beds on the first floor without my even asking. Even though the hotel is right on a busy street, the room was very quiet. The room was very clean, everything was in excellent working condition, except for the sink which did not drain very quickly. As soon I notified the front desk, a maintenance guy came right away and fixed it. We had free access to Internet in their business centre.
The LRT station is right at the bottom of the hotel parking lot, and it took only a few minutes to ride to downtown. Parking is free.
At the time we were there, there were still some renovations going on outside, but it looked like all of the renovations inside have been completed.
The area around the hotel is not really that great - a large pawn shop one block over, and mostly light commercial businesses but we had no issues or concerns about crime or our safety.
Several good restaurants, but you need a car to get there. I highly recommend Smuggler's Inn for their prime rib. The hotel had its own restaurant, and the prices were not outrageous. Another good choice for breakfast is Humpty's - also need a car but we enjoyed that meal.
Overall, the same excellent service you would expect from a Holiday Inn.
