“"Water Park" - 4star, hotel - 3star”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Rooms were clean but hotel needs some major maintenance... I assume many families come for the wave pool and slide, but if you don't need that then you may find a hotel more suitable in the same price range. Hotel is tired and shabby, very busy on the weekends and it shows that it is a dated and busy building.

Water Park is what you see what you get. Water slide, small wave pool (in comparison to the average but large for a hotel) a small kiddie pool, rinse-off showers and 12 person hot tub. Kids loved it and it was well maintained in comparison to the rest of the hotel. We were impressed with the attentive and personable life guards.

Skip the breakfast buffet. ($10 a person for "scrambled eggs", sausages, bacon, home fries, cereal, tin-can fruit and a few pre-packaged baked goods.)

The only problems we had were with the annoyance of other guests. Overall a 3 star stay, but we did have a good time!

Lobby nice but beyond that hotel is old and shabby. Worn carpet, lumpy bed and pillows. Bathroom needs updating as even when clean it looks poor. Water park with slide and wave pool for children is reason we booked. Buffet bkft acceptable. Staff excellent. Location to museums good.

We stayed one night at that hotel. The front desk lady was GREAT! spoke French and English really fluently. she was great! We picked that hotel for the waterpark for the kids. They truly enjoyed it. The waterpark area was well taken care of. It was clean and freshly painted. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the waterpark area and I was worried it would be really noisy but it was not bad at all. The room was a little small and needed some upgrades but it was clean which is what is the most important. The lifeguards at the waterpark ( as most young lifeguards I must say) seemed to take care of the pool and their social life more than lifeguarding the pool. Even though I truly believe that it is the parent's responsibility to watch their kids in the pool area, lifeguards should be watching the pool as well and not turn their back to it to chat with their coworkers. There was always towels available at the pool and everything was pretty clean. I wished it opened a little earlier in the am but it closes at 9pm so the kids managed to get their fill of fun anyway!
The lobby was clean but some of the couches showed signs of worn and tear. Part of the carpet in our room was unglued from the wall and some tiles in the shower had black grout lines ( not from being dirty) just from being old. The hotel could use a facelift but the waterpark made it worth while.
