We spent 5 nights here on the third floor and loved this hotel from top to bottom. The rooms were attractive and comfortable and the bathroom was a really good size.
I liked the conservation attitude of the hotel which included having dual flush toilets and large refillable soap/shampoo/body lotion bottles. These large bottles were much easier to dispense product from too! Loved that!
The front desk staff were awesome; super helpful and lots of fun too!
The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the service was exceptional and the food was delicious.
There is a charge for parking of about $8 per night with in and out privileges. The parking is in the attached parkade and felt safe and secure with and elevator directly into the hotel.
The location of this hotel was perfect for wandering and exploring downtown and it's unique little shops as well as strolling along the wharf. There are a number of local restaurants close by but if you prefer the chain restaurants you will have to drive about 5 minutes north to the mall area to get to those.
The only downside to this hotel is the hallway noise. We heard every door open and close. Because of the downtown location, there is some street noise but we found that if we just turned the fan on low it was enough to cover it up.
Overall though, it was a great experience and most importantly we slept like babies! :)
