Though the hotel has a rather undistinguished exterior, thanks to substantial updating, the interior has a contemporary and welcoming atmosphere. The room for our one night stay was adequate though quite small. We didn't eat dinner in the restaurant but service and organisation at breakfast was very poor with a totally inadequate amount of staff for the number eating. The hotel lies in a particularly dull part of an uninspiring town with few interesting places to eat, though we did have a pleasant walk to the nearby park and river.

Seriously, everyone who worked there said hi to us! Very customer focused which was nice to see. Beds not as comfortable as I would have expected, but I have been on worse ones. The pool is pretty cool being outside on the second floor. Nice atmosphere, and they have services to the pool for food and drinks, but I didn't get to sample that unfortunately.

Service was excellent. The room was certainly more than adequate. The hotel was easy to get to. It had all the amenities we required. What we liked best was the courteous, helpful staff. There was some street noise that was bothersome at times but nothing that would prevent us from returning to your hotel in the future.

Had a terrible stay at Hotel 540. Couldn't get my room cleaned, poor attitude of several staff. Night manager comped me a night for my problems, day shift did not know about it come check out. Bell Hop would not let me use cart for second trip even though we had two rooms and 5 people's luggage. Everything about the stay was a struggle. Hugely disappointed.

Dear RickB,

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I also enjoyed speaking with you on the phone and was pleased to learn of the many previous stays you have had with us and how much you enjoyed them. I can understand how after setting the bar high previously, we disappointed you on this instance.

I was pleased to be able to talk this through with you and I look forward to welcoming you back for your stay later in August. See you then !

Best Regards,

Bryan Pilbeam
VP/GM

We were on the Rocky Mountaineer train trip. Kamloops was our overnight stop. They kept stressing that accomodations were modest, 3 stars at best. We prepared ourselves for motel-like rooms. Instead, we got this little gem. Our rooms were beautiful and modern. We had a drink at the wonderful rooftop pool which cooled us off from desert-like heat.

Newlyweds. My husband and I went for a spontaneous stay at 540 the night after our wedding. We were greated nicely and was informed with everything the hotel offers. Room was amazing and the pool was the best thing ever!
