The hotel is in a marvelous location but the rooms need updating. The television was small and the window overlooking Lake Ontario was tiny. We could not get wifi and after a bit of complaining the staff did not charge us for parking. We never did get wifi.

Room tip: I requested a lakeview and got it.

Thank you for your feedback.

We are currently working on a renovation plan which will hopefully begin some time this winter. We are continuously making improvements to the property to enhance the guest experience.

We have recently made upgrades to our Wifi which should help out rooms located at ends of the halls.

We hope you consider our hotel again in the future and appreciate your comments.

I have stayed at the Confederation Place Hotel twice in the past month and have had a great experience both times. The staff are always friendly, the room is always clean and the price is very reasonable for a hotel that is located right downtown by the water. There are so many great restaurants close by and lot's to do and explore.
Some reviews have mentioned the limited and expensive parking. If you don't mind the walk there is a free overnight City parking lot just a couple of blocks down the road, behind the LCBO. I park there and walk up to the hotel.
The continental breakfast is OK, but it would be nice to have a waffle maker added as a nice touch!

Room tip: Water View! And the King Suite with hot tub, water view!

Thank you for your review and kind words.

Parking in the downtown core can be expensive and certainly is at a premium. We try and provide a reasonably priced option on site.
We have supplied a waffle maker in the breakfast bar in the past with varying results (putting yogurt in there is a bad idea ha ha) but will definitely pass on your suggestion to the team in charge of this area. We are continuously working on our guest experience.

Again we are glad you have repeatedly chosen our property and look forward to welcoming you back.

Went to Kingston for the writer’s fest and bought tickets before settling on a place to stay. This was one of the last rooms available! After reading other reviews here, I was worried; I even brought cleaning supplies just in case. I felt compelled to add a review because I found the whole experience pleasant.

Yes, the hall carpets are a little worn, and the lobby is a bit dark. That said, the staff was friendly, and we found the room (#504) large and comfortable. The beds and linens were very clean and comfortable as well. The bathroom had been thoroughly cleaned and though it wasn’t brand new, we had no issues.

Breakfast in the morning (included) was ham, hash browns, boiled eggs, toast, cereal, juice, coffee and muffins. We had breakfast at around 8 am, and there was still plenty of food. Also, you cannot beat this location right downtown and near the water.

It isn’t the cheapest hotel we’ve stayed in (when you compare with Hotwire or Expedia rates in cities like Montreal and Toronto), but for a city with not a lot of choices and a busy event, it was a good value.

In a day and age where people usually head to the computer to provide negative feedback on social media, it is refreshing when guests such as yourself take the time to detail positive experiences.

Thank you for your review and kind words and we would be delighted to see you again.

- usually try to stay here because of location, "reasonable" prices and breakfast
- bathroom (tub area needs better cleaning)
- carpets need cleaning Correction of cleaning needs would move the score to Good
- great desk staff

Room tip: be very specific to the type/description of room specifics (i.e. location)

Just a few minutes walk from the Leons Centre in central Kingston. Rooms are large, clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They do have parking but it's pricey ($20 + tax per night), very limited and difficult to get in and out of. I recommend you park in the municipal lot across the street.

Room tip: If you want a view, opt for the lake side rooms. City view overlooks the road and a parking lot.
