What did you like about your stay? **Location - it's near the airport and within walking distance to a shopping centre *Staff were quick to respond when we had issues with the TV remote control and refrigerator not working. Both were replaced within a reasonable time. *Availability of a microwave and laundry on our floor *We were allowed to check in early What do you think would make your next stay better? ** Resume airport and Hillsdale mall shuttle services * Give guests option to re-use our towels to save water and energy. While we appreciated the restocking of towels everyday it wasn't necessary. * Replace travel-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion with bulk dispensers to reduce plastic waste. * Include breakfast with hotel rate

The hotel in general was very nice. One issue arose when we finally got to the hotel one day late due to a flight cancellation. The hotel occupied our room, and they only had two queen beds upon our arrival. We then had to move the following day to get our king room. As of this writing I have not heard from the hotel after they had taken my phone number and email address.
