We loved this hotel. We were a bit wary of the valet parking as we're not used to it and I wasn't sure about the rules on tipping, but it wasn't a problem at all. The nice lady took our car and parked it in their secure lot and when we checked out, the nice man drove the car around and didn't even wait for a tip.
We also really liked the chocolates waiting for us in our room. We had a small room, but we were the second last room on that floor and so didn't hear much noise from the corridor. In fact, didn't hear much noise from neighbouring guests. This would have been one of the quietest hotel we've stayed in.
One reviewer commented on not receiving their cookies. Well, maybe you weren't in your room when the lady came with the cookies. We received our cookies both nights we were there. On the second night, we came back to our rooms late, but housekeeping returned to our room with our cookies even though she had already done her rounds!! Thank you. And, the cookies were nice.
I really liked the shower as it had a hand held shower head. I usually don't see them in hotels, but they're very useful. And, I didn't notice any problems with the water pressure that one reviewer commented on.
The complimentary breakfast was delicious. We're early risers and so didn't have any problems with limited choice. The fruits were sweet and ripe, the sausages, bacon and scrambled eggs were delicious, and best of all are the pastries. They were my favourite.
And, Niagara Falls is not far away. We even saw the fireworks from our room.
Overall, we had a great experience at the hotel and no disappointments at all! I highly recommend it.
