The St John's NFL Sheraton has lots to recommend it - great staff, comfy accommodations, local food creations and gorgeous views.
On my recent trip, I chose a room in the commoner area (aka non-"club level").
When I arrived near midnight, I was astounded by the views and the size and comfort of the room. "Wow" doesn't begin to cover it.
But, soon, I was confounded by the lack of "free internet" in what turned out to be my first room.
Next morning, I learned at the front desk that certain rooms were not yet connected to the hotel internet system and my first room was one of those.
I hated to change rooms, but I opted for an improvement in my circumstances and chose a new room on the club level. Strangely, the club level room was far smaller than what I call the peon level rooms. Picky, picky.
Anyway, the restaurant is fabulous all day long - lobster eggs benedict (if you choose) and some creative dinner options. Kind of a go-to restaurant even if you are not staying in the hotel.
I tell my friends that you can tell the Irish settled in NFL because the topography was celebrated by paving over (but not levelling) the hills. So what? Well, the Sheraton is located 2 streets up from Water Street so, for me, walking to and from town amounted to climbing up to and down Mt. Kilimanjaro without a sherpa.
A great place for your first trip to St John's, Newfoundland.
