Hotel's Favourite
We have stayed in this hotel several times in the past. We just returned again a few nights ago from a 2 night stay. I think considering how covid is affecting the entire hospitality sector, the hotel does its best to make their guests feel as comfortable as possible. When you walk in, there is hand sanitizer available at the door and by the front desk, as well as in many other spots in the hotel. There is plexiglass between you and the front desk staff and everyone wore a mask. They hand you a sheet of info, providing you with details about all they do to keep you safe, including the products they use to sanitize. The lobby was clean and our room was spotless. Any staff we met in the hotel, from the front desk staff to the maids, were friendly and professional. I have to compliment them on the mattresses. They were practically the most comfortable I have ever slept in at a hotel. My husband and I slept so soundly that I even asked the staff at the desk what the name of the mattress was. We are trying to buy a new one for our home and I am hoping to find the same mattress in our local stores. The size of the room is more than adequate. We asked for a quiet room and that is what the front desk rep found for us, room 208. There is a small fridge in the room, a pull out couch and a small coffee maker. A little tip- there is a Metro grocery store on the same street, about a minute walk from the hotel. If you need any items or drinks to put in the fridge, it is very convenient. This was my only complaint, that I found the inside of the fridge not as cold as I would have liked and there was no dial to change the setting. Without hesitation, I would return any time I am visiting the area.

I got this trip for my partner and I to relax before going back to work/school. It was super relaxing. I loved the tub! We stayed in it for most of the trip! I have stayed at this multiple times and every time I leave happy.
