The best thing to say about the Tonquin is that it is one of the most beautiful places in North America.
Parking for the hotel is only adequate, so if you want to get a spot close to your room, don't arrive too late at night. The elevators to the second and third floors in our building were small and disheveled, and make noises that are a little scary.
Our room was at best tiny. One king bed and a small desk. Only one person could squeeze between these two pieces of furniture at a time. The view out of our window was of the hallway, and cleaning staff decided to have conversations there quite early in the morning. The room was dusty, with vents having very obvious dustballs hanging from them.
The bed was large and comfortable, and the linens appeared fresh and clean.
The bathroom was tiny, the tub and shower were small, but water pressure, and heat were good.
The air conditioning was not well marked, and the cooling system heated the room on the first day we were there. There was no temperature indication, and no indication of which way to turn the knob for heating or cooling.
The price we paid was in line with what is paid in Jasper, so I consider it to be expensive for what we got.
All in all, the old saying that, "we only sleep in the room, so how good does it have to be?" suits this hotel, as we couldn't wait to get out of this very small space. It got us out into the wonderful world of the park sooner than it might have!
