Great location is within walking distance to many restaurants and things to do and see. The room is one of the biggest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. Was doing some upgrading which I am sure will only make things even better.

We stayed for only one night. I think our Hotels.ca booked room was upgraded to a HUGE Signature suite with a separate bedroom. Although the decor is dated, everything you could think of needing is provided, and all is clean and in good working order, WiFi is fast and reliable, and beds are comfortable. The area is great, with lots...

Don't be fooled by the name Business Inn, this is a great place for families too. The suites are huge and equipped with everything you need. As a family with 2 kids we were so appreciative of the space and especially the nice and comfortable living room with fireplace while it was snowing outside. The included breakfast had more options...

(Also the hotel is currently undergoing some refurb works to bring more up to date.) Also had business computer in room including printer. Staff were friendly and helpful and let...

I stayed on the top floor of this building for a night. Loved pretty much everything about it. Great price, great location, great, spacious room. Like apartment hotels it featured a bathroom, living room, bedroom and a kitchen. This hotel provides two large flatscreen TVs (Sony, great quality), believe it or not, a coffee grinder in the room, a balcony,...

Large rooms very well equipped, particularly liked the PC and printer, very helpful when visiting for business. Central location lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Reception needs tidying up and breakfast selection rather limited. But reasonable value and would return.
