“Great place to stay- for the right price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Stayed here for one night this week while traveling for work!
Rooms are very nice and the beds are super comfy. the hotel has a small pool and fitness center which is a nice touch for the hotel. Its in a good location with everything nearby, although its tough to turn left outta the parking lot. This might leave you frustrated in the morning or at rush periods. Other than that its a great place to stay on the of the mountain. its not a cheap place, regular room rate was like $179.00. Come on Marriott, its freaking Hamilton. I got a corporate rate so it wasn't as bad so don't be afraid to ask for the best price!!
Enjoy

Stayed at this hotel 3 nights ago- found it to be very clean, well decorated too. Enjoyed the pool and fitness area which were very clean and bright. Nice outside courtyard ,would have been nice to use if the weather had have been warmer. Close to McMaster university. I'd come back here if in Hamilton again!

..and not disappointed. We booked the night before arrival and although the hotel was sold out with basketball tournament families, it was relatively calm and peaceful. The king bed room with pull out sofa accommodated our family - 2 kids 2 adults nicely. Room was very clean and very tastefully decorated but a little on the pricey side for Hamilton. Breakfast buffet (extra) was great and had an excellent variety of choices. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is close to restaurants, shopping and freeway so it was easy to get around. Didn't end up using the pool but it looked like it was being well used. Overall, for the one night stay, it met our needs...as they also provided a late check out which really came in handy.

Room Tip: make sure the room's alarm clock is turned off or reset. Ours was set from previous visitor and...

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it so much in that it is not a rowdy hectic hotel. 2 stories.
Pilots that come in from the airport down the road come here and you can hear them briefly at night through the door. Other than that it is quiet.
The beds are comfortable and soft but firm too. Clean linen. Decore: navy and yellow; not MY thing but when my eyes are closed I don't notice it.
Check out is at noon & they serve breakfast until 11am and no other meals. You can order off the menu or have the breakfast bar which is nice and clean, the food isn't all touched and disorganized.
There is a bar that opens at 4:30-10pm.
I ate breaky there with no one else in the sitting are while my hubby slept more on those delicious beds.
Breakfast was finished as I was finishing and the waitress said to take some food for my hubby since there was a lot left over. Economical, 2 breakfasts for 1!!
It was nice too, instead of throwing out the food the room attendants and staff help 'clean it up' and I over heard one of them saying to take some bacon home for her kids'.
It is an expensive hotel but worth it, considering Hooters is across the street with a Howard Johnson attached to it and I haven't heard good things about that place.
I got the Marriott for $69US booking through Priceline (love that site!!!). We were attending a family funeral on a Monday so It was probably cheaper then on a weekend.
The Keg and Turtle Jacks are a short walk away and Upper James St has many places to go for dining/breakfast (The Egg & I is just past the McDonalds on Rymal and has an AmAzInG breakfast. FYI The lineups can go out the door and around the corner if you come on a weekend or holiday.)
Starbucks just up the way from the hotel and Tim's is just a walk away. Oh Dennigers is a fabulous little German shop with great food too!! A must try!!

Room Tip: Save some money and use Priceline 'Name your price'. We have been here twice and stayed in...

The hotel room was very new, had great lighting, and fast free internet connection.Travellers get a very good quality stay, but if you're just there to grab a night's rest, the price was not worth the stay.

This hotel is a great business hotel and I would highly recommend it to others. One of the biggest reasons is I got an amazing deal on priceline which made this hotel extremely affordable.

The location of this ok - as there are a lot of restaurants and shops within driving distance. If you are going to McMaster University or McMaster University Hospital - it is within a close driving distance.

The hotel was modern and well kept. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and well mannered. The room was clean, modern, and has extremely comfortable beds (which is has been consistent at all the Marriot properties I have stayed at.

I had the breakfast buffet - and it was pretty good. It is a bit expensive but the food was fresh and the staff were excellent.

Parking and internet is free which is always a bonus.

In all, my stay here was excellent. I would definitely return to this hotel if I got a similar price to what I paid for on priceline.

Room Tip: Higher Floor - away from the elevators and facing the back
