“excellent hotel and location”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

I have stayed at this hotel many times but they have now made more improvements . They have added an exercise room and a pool and a banquet room on the 2nd floor. I went and tried out the excersise room and it is excellent. Nice and big and roomy with lots of equipement. Looked into the pool and sauna and will try that next trip. Excersie room is open 24 hrs. Staff at the hotel is always friendly and rooms always clean and confortable. Restraurant has good food with ample to eat. Will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Front view is of Victoria Street and back is of London Drugs. Both are quiet a...

The hotel was nice and clean and the restaurant staff was fabulous however there was a power outage in the evening. There was no follow up from the staff as to what the problem was. We just had no power and no AC and no phone service and were just literally left in the dark about the "problem". Power came on at about 2 a.m. when all the lights, TV and AC started waking us in an already uncomfortable night. We didn't know if we left our room, could we get back in?? I expected a note under the door in the a.m. but nothing. The desk say it was a B.C. Hydro issue, but I paid for AC, and TV. They didn't seem to care. For that I give a poor rating....customer service. Couldn't control the issue, but sure could have communicated a lot better.

We stayed three nights in this hotel. It is an older hotel TOTALLY RENOED. The air in the hotel is fabulous - everything was clean and well taken care of. The pool area is lovely. The hotel is central. The restaurant is very very good especially for breakfast ---BUT SERVICE IS SLOW SO BE WARNED. Staff are lovely in the hotel and in the restaurant. Hotel is well located. All in all good value for a nice place.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and request the fifth floor...

This was an overnighter for me and it was so noisy that I barely slept. The walls are thin, the room is hot and the smell is iffy. It made my onward journey a bit of a nightmare.

On the plus side the food wa absoluetly amazing, i tried some amazing beers and the staff were mostly good.

Need to up your game to succeed and get some decent soundproofing in

Room Tip: The best room would be one in another hotel

A solid three star hotel and from what we saw and probably one of the nicest in Kamloops. Front desk personnel were friendly and very accommodating. The maître d, on shift the evening we were there, however, deserves the highest recognition. (I so wish I had written this young man's name down so I could mention him by name) I informed him that my wife wasn't feeling very well and requested some plates and utensils from the kitchen so I could share a light meal with her in our room. Without blinking an eye, he fulfilled my request and graciously offered any other help I might need. I was impressed by his genuine kindness. The room was average size for a 3 star hotel but also very immaculate - a lot of attention to detail. The bed was extremely comfortable and the complimentary Wi-Fi was easily connected to. Though the hotel is located in the downtown area, it is very quiet and peaceful. Overall, an excellent choice by the Rocky Mountaineer folks for our overnight stay.

Renovated and renamed, Blue restaurant at Hotel 540 was great. Local wines, great food, bacon butter was awesome, creme brulee was superb, great server, all six of us had a great time. Photo below is of ribs after we'd already eaten a bunch, nice Thai sauce.

We had a pleasant surprise in Kamloops. As we were arriving on our tour coach, the tour guide gave us the impression that Kamloops was "a bit of a dump of a town".( Actually, she did not do justice to Kamloops at all. It was really a nice town!). So we thought we would only get a "bit of a dump" of a hotel - we were very pleased that this wasn't the case.

The Hotel 540 is centrally located in Downtown Kamloops. Just behind the hotel across the road is a shopping centre with a big supermarket, and a selection of good retail outlets.

I read one of the Tripadvisor comments which said the bed room was small. Well, ours was not small - it was of a decent size and very smartly furnished. It was clean, well-maintained and elegantly decorated. There was a large screen tv, good airconditioning, and spotless bathroom.

We did not eat in the restaurant on the ground floor as the menu was not to our taste and it was a bit pricey, but that aside, the accommodate was great.

As hotels go, this is a very pleasant hotel and it is well managed.
