Cons: Expedia advertised that the rooms had microwave cookers, this is not the case and the description should be amended.
A one night stop off to break the long drive from Toronto to Montreal. A pleasant 15 minute walk by the riverside into town. Good pub and resteraunts to be found. A Railway museum on the doorstep.

Clean and comfortable--nice hotel!

Cons: From a security standpoint, the back door wouldn't close properly so someone could gain access to the hotel without a key.
Rooms were clean and comfortable and in good repair. The refrigerator in the room was very useful, and it's fairly good sized. The room description mentions a microwave, but there is no microwave in the room. The guy at the front desk said there is one near the area where breakfast is served, and we could use it whenever we needed, just needed to let them know first. There is no elevator, but that wasn't a big deal.

Pros: The rooms and common areas were fine, but the staff really made our stay great!
Cons: An exercise room would be nice, and the pool was a little too cold. A hot tub/jacuzzi would be more useful in this climate.
Location: Great walking trail along the locks and down the canals/river.
Nice property with excellent and friendly staff. Breakfast was great--lots of options and attentive staff. Very good location central to all our planned activities.

We were a large group visiting from out of town for a wedding. The hotel appeared to be brand new or recently renovated. It was spotless. Our maid was so nice!!! Showed our curious toddler her cleaning cart and was very gracious and polite. Conveniently located. Quiet. Didn't use the pool so can't comment.
