We stayed two nights, one on points and one cash, on this, the 2nd of our six hotels in our road trip of the Maritimes. This was one of the nicest hotels of our trip (after the Hilton St. John, and maybe the Lord Beaverbrook in Fredericton), but it was certainly our most expensive for the second night at over $200 with tax! I've stayed at a lot of Hampton Inns, and this is the nicest one in which I've stayed. If I didn't factor price/value in my ratings, I would have given in 5 dots, because this is a Hampton Inn on steroids! I wouldn't have coughed up the money without the free night, though.
The lobby is impressive with a beautiful stone fireplace and artwork, and a grand staircase. The pool has an adequate size and a great slide which doesn't dump into the pool (making the pool usable for others). They have taken care of the pool heating problem which a prior reviewer had noted--the temperature was quite comfortable. It has the largest and best-equipped gym I've ever seen in a Hampton Inn, and everything in perfect order. Unlike many Hamptons, the breakfast area is very ample in size, with no danger of over-crowding.
The rooms are expansive, quiet and comfortable. Ther's a flat HD television, and the internet worked well and promptly. Although the hotel has no restaurant for lunch or dinner, it is connected to a good one at the trade and convention center via a climate-controlled walkway. We had some problems with the GPS locating this property, probably because it's new, but even putting in the trade and convention center led to problems.
In short, I have nothing to complain about this property but the price, which I would expect more of a luxury property. I realize Canada is expensive, but this property was more expensive than the Hilton St. John or the Crowne Plaza/Lord Beaverbrook in Fredericton. Do spend a day at Louisbourg Fortress!
