I booked two Queen beds in a harbourview room, nice view, spacious. I arrived 1130pm St. Paddys, so the Pub was hopping with a band playing. The hall seemed a little messy, pizza box was in the hall for a day... and post March break, a juice box and dip cup got missed by cleaners but they were on window...

Nice hotel and comfortable rooms. enjoyed a nice stroll along the board walk and was pleasantly surprised with the fitness centre. There was a pool available however I did not use it. Also, prices at the restaurant were pretty steep and the pub was closed for renovations when I stayed in February, so I had to leave the hotel for...

Rooms are very nice ,very clean most with good views. Beds are nice and soft maybe 2 soft for some But clean just the same. I'll be honest the lobby area is not the nicest looking. But we don't sleep in it. Nice bar/lounge restaurant in lobby area Crown and Moose but a bit pricey for most items there. Shower...

I loved the view out of my room when I stayed here. I had a corner room with a view of the water. The room was clean, comfortable and great size. Staff were friendly and the hotel is nicely located on the waterfront. One issue I had was that my room had a circular window that didn't have blinds or...

This is my 4th stay at this hotel in the past 3 years. Also stayed a few times when it was under the Delta brand. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is friendly and attentive to customer needs. On March 10, 2017, I checked out early AM, and about 15 minutes later, Air Canada advised my outbound flight had been...

I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff! Each staff member that we encountered was personable and friendly. The location has a great view of the harbour, as well. We had good experiences at both the restaurants - tasty food and kind staff.

I'm satisfied with my stay here - the staff are always helpful and kind. I find that housekeeping can be improved, as they are slow getting to the rooms. Every other service is well done. I was here in the Spring and Summer and I find that since there's a pool here, it's super family-friendly which can translate into noise....
