5 out of 5
The hotel, a renovated courthouse, has been open as a hotel for only four months. The building is 95 years old, but the rooms are only four months old. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The location is convenient to Red River Road, an access route to 11/17, and Algoma, a major east/west street. The Courthouse is on the periphery of what was downtown Port Arthur. The area has seen better days, but it offers several restaurants and pubs. It also is an easy walk from the hotel to Marina Park on the lakefront.

Brand new facility with a few growing pains that staff is keen to correct. My only concern is with the blatant rip-off by the municipal government in their levying of a "tourist tax" on travellers who stay in area rental accommodations. They don't seem to realize that tourists already contribute to the local economy by purchases of goods and services while in the vicinity.
