    Staff is helpful and will do its best to help, with a big smile! Rooms were clean and convenient to work in, WIFI is OK, and breakfast is delicious. Location is convenient, close to the airport. I recommend this hotel.

    This is an outstanding hotel, and it is in a great location near the waterfront. Some people walked there, but the hotel provides a free shuttle every 30 minutes to the Victoria Waterfront Mall. Lots of shops and restaurants were there.
