It seemed like the name indicated it was in the center of the downtown, but it is not. That was disappointing and I would not have booked the room in this location if I had of known.

The shopping center was right across the street; friends in town highly recommended this hotel. Central location and acess to shopping malls, restaurant, and the QueensWay is excellent.

I was not satisfied with the room cleaning after the first night there. I returned to the hotel at 2 PM after a morning of meetings and expected to take a nap before going out again. Room had not been cleaned at that point. Not acceptable. I rented the room to USE for the time I was there. Cleaning at least by noon of the day should be normal. Problem not the cleaner, but the scheduling, I guess.

The package we purchased included breakfast. The guy checking us in said it didn't show we paid for the breakfast. He eventually agreed to call Travelocity but "later", as it would take 30 minutes to do. I never heard back from him. In the morning, we went to front desk to question further. Woman checked computer, and said yes it's right there in your reservation. She was helpful.
