I wish there was a way to rate 3.5 because if I didn't have to factor in the steep price during stampede week maybe my expectations wouldn't have been as high.
The hotel is older but well maintained generally. There is underground parking available but you can't access the elevator without first using stairs which makes transporting luggage a pain.
There is a restaurant on site which is very good. There is also a lounge, a coffee counter and a little gift shop which is all very convenient. There is no complimentary breakfast. The staff were all very friendly.
The pool area has water slides, a kiddie pool and 2 hot tubs. Unfortunately the closest one one to the pool was out of service.
Housekeeping was the issue for me. The ice bucket still had a bag of water from previous guests. We also found clothes left in the drawer which we turned in to the front desk. The bottom sheets never fit properly and kept coming off. House keepers also failed to replace the toilet tissue. We were left with only half a roll. The facial tissue was left empty a well. Minor things but on our last morning the housekeeping staff woke us up by having a long loud conversation right outside the door.
The location is so near the airport you can watch the planes take off. It's quite noisy and disrupted our sleep. Not near anything else really but a Tim Hortons. You can take a city bus to the light rail train. Quite a distance from shopping and attraction but convenient for air travel.
I would stay somewhere next time.
