Wonderful location! Staff, restaurant was ideal. Stayed here prior to tour to Canadian Rockies. Restaurants in area great. Tried Pucinella-great Italian restaurant block behind hotel. Also ate at your restaurant-delicious. Outside patio is an added feature.

Very happy with our room and fireplace. It was roomy enough with a nice bathroom. The hotel is conveniently located, and downtown was just a walk away, as well as a beautiful park over the Peace Bridge.

Good morning Latim63, From our location it is very easy to walk downtown. You can access the downtown core via the 10th street Bridge, or the Calatrava Peace Bridge which is accessible from the pedestrian and bike pathway... More

Underground, heated parking was $15 for the night. After pulling into the garage and parking, we were greeted with waters and an offer to carry our bags. For us, the secure heated parking was worth the $15.
