My husband and I stayed at the beautiful Shaw Club Hotel & Spa courtesy of a gift card romance overnight package. Everything was perfect, complete with thoughtful touches such as the welcome birthday gift dessert for my husband! It was a pleasant surprise as I had only mentioned it in passing during my phone conversation with the hotel booking clerk. She had unexpectedly and most kindly added a few nice touches to our room when we arrived. Speaking of our room (#114) it was absolutely lovely. Spotlessly clean, all amenities in good working order, and a huge bathroom with rainfall shower enclosed with glass shower doors. A beautiful experience after a long, hot day shopping and sightseeing in town. I wanted to stay in the shower forever as it felt so relaxing and wonderful like my own private spa with massage included.
The queen-size bed was utterly luxurious and comfortable, and the bedding divine. I only wish we had such comfort in our own bed at home since at home our English Springer Spaniel finds the best spot on our bed and stays there! But, speaking of dogs, I noticed that this hotel does offer a pet-friendly room, so those dog-lovers might be able to bring their beloved pooch with them provided their dog is well-behaved and under-control at all times.
We had a fantastic dinner at Zee's Grill which was a short walk down the hall from our hotel room. It's connected to the Shaw Club Hotel so if it's inclement weather you won't even need to bring an umbrella. How perfect is that! At dinner we sat at a table outside on the terrace/patio which provided us with a good view of the theatre crowd strolling by as they admired the exquisite sculptured gardens surrounding the Shaw Club Hotel. Our meals were absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the lobster poutine as an appetizer which he described as "outstanding". Needless to say we had to do a lot of walking afterwards to work off those delectable calories we just gained, but it was well worth it. Even our breakfasts were delicious. I sampled the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict with Avocado which was very tasty. Our waiters/waitresses were consistently friendly, polite, and helpful. Excellent service throughout our stay, including the front-desk staff who cheerfully greeted us upon our Sunday afternoon arrival to the restaurant staff who were not only efficient, but despite being very busy serving customers would nonetheless find time to answer my questions about the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
One final note is to thank whomever had the excellent idea of installing a tiny television monitor in the bathroom so that those of us who are FIFA World Cup soccer fans like my husband and I wouldn't miss any games! Thank you to whomever had that brilliant idea. Now, all I want to know is how can I convince my husband to install one of those tv's in our tiny bathroom?!
