Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Roof over our head but not much more. We admittedly thought it was the same Toronto/Vancouver chain but were mistaken as were other guest reviewers. An old, crappy building. Awkward room layout. Sheets had coffee stains on them and god knows what else. We checked in late so had no option to find another place.

Good view, convenient location. Nice upgrade of appliances but facility is old. Mattresses should have been replaced, weak & noisy springs. Worst night of sleep ever at a 4-star hotel.

There is a daily amenity fee that I don’t remember being prominently mentioned when I first booked. The staff are very nice and the rooms are clean but dated.

The hotel is dated, they were understaffed and that affected the quality of the service. The room we stayed at had appliances that did not work properly, like the water dispenser of the fridge.
