“Beautiful hotel in the middle of everything”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

From the hotel we were able to walk around much of the downtown core of the city. We arrived on a Saturday with a wedding in the main ballroom. We couldn't hear a thing from our room! A special treat was the lounge on the roof. It provide a perfect vantage point to watch the sunset. The breakfast was reasonably price and tasty.

Very nice quaint hotel capturing the charm of yesteryear with the conveniences of today, nicely situated in the heart of Charlottetown. Comfortable room. Parking is a little crammed, first come first serve but you can park free on street overnight. Rooftop patio was very nice, but closed a little early, 10 pm. Nice place, would go there again.

Very nice and very friendly.
Looks like a very old hotel but it has been well maintained.
Top notch service
Beds are very comfy
Breakfast was traditional and very good.
Rooms are quiet
Everything seems old but very well done.
I recommend this place.

We recently spent a night at the Rodd Charlottetown. After travelling for over 24 hours, their simple and quick check in process was much appreciated. The room was small, and the bathroom tiny, but given the historical nature of the building this can't be helped. If you are looking for a place to stay that is central, and has character, this is a great place for you.

The fitness facility was more then I expected. All the machines were well maintained, an anomaly for most hotel gyms. They also offer flavoured water near the fitness facility and in the lobby. I thought that was a really nice touch.

We had dinner and a drink in the Chambers bar. Our waitress went above and beyond for us. She not only made us feel welcome to the hotel, but made as feel at home in the town as well. She gave us all sorts of great information and tips regarding the area.

All in all, this was a very good property, clean, efficient, and good service. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a pleasent place to lay their head while they explore Charlottetown.

Located in a prime location in Charlottetown, Rodd Charlottetown is a fantastic hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and well kept. Although the bathroom was old fashioned, it was still very functional. The hotel had a very nice charm and stay was very pleasant overall. The only problem encountered was limiting parking space.

Thank you for you comments regarding your stay. We take pride in maintaining our heritage décor. We are addressing our limited parking space with the use of a parkade one block away if no space is open in our lot.

My family and I stayed at the Rodd charlottown hotel the people at the front desk seemed annoyed that we were asking questions about the rooms and the surrounding area some of the staff were nice enough to help us however some were not and after driving all day we expected a lot more we ordered a cot and after waiting for an hour had to call back multiple times to get a cot brought up after leaving the hotel a bag with a lap top was left in the parking lot by mistake and miscommunication with my family we called mulipletimesto see if it was returned and then came to the conclusion it had been stolen we asked to have the cameras in the back parking lot reviewed and they would not bring in a manger to do so as it was a Sunday and for confeditiality reasons the simple ppl working the desk are not permited to see the cameras and i can appriciate that however they just flat out said no no explenation of that I could understand if itwasjust clothing in the bag how ever it was an expensive lap top with many memory's on it and it was very important to me i was clearly upset and frustrated and it seemed that because I'm just a small town girl I don't get the kind of attention someone with money would get after calling the police the cameras were reviewed and we came to find out that none of ur cameras point in the back parking lot in speaking with other people from the surrounding buildings they said it happens all the time why not face ur camera where the cars are parked what if something more serious was to happen then just a stolen bag .... Something to consider since you classify urself as a business hotel with all the fancy people who are suppose to want to stay there What if there mercedes or their bmws get broken into When asked about the cameras ur staff had no idea howto even answer the question and there was no manager on at the time ... Suggestions manager should be there at all times to answer questions ... I'm unhappy with the service I received from this hotel and wouldn't recommend anyone to stay there pay the 100$extra go to the best western ... Or park down the block make sure ur cars are locked and don't forget anything there because it could be gone in a heart beat why not have ur security walking around outside the parking lot more and yes the location to everything is nice but ur hotel wasn't worth my 1000$ lap top sorry to say

The room are small and old. I stay in hotel an average of 60 night each year. This one was the worst regarding price and quality. Our room was right over a wedding party. Are all the room that I will book with you will be at bad location like that or it is just that I been unlucky.
