If attending a show at the Design Mart this is a great location to stay. A convenient bridge takes you across to the mart without getting you out in the weather.
It is a full service hotel with Bell and concierge, good checking processes and a restaurant.The staff seems very well-trained to be service oriented, polite and prompt.
Room service is expensive but arrives on time and is good quality. The restaurant is a little dated and a limited menu but again good convenience. The only downside is the rooms are quite dated, beddings are very average. There is no option for microwave or refrigerator in the room.
I like to swim and so enjoyed the pool which was clean, large and well lit. Another downside is there was no Jacuzzi. The weight room seemed average. Though I didn't use it personally. There was a sauna that was of average quality. The bathrooms attached were quite dated.
