The hotel room met my expectations. Room was clean, bed was made. My original room smelled like tobacco smoke, curtains were stained, I guess in Canada smoking in hotel rooms is ok. The reason I switched rooms was poor wifi signal. Staff was nice enough to give me a bigger room with a kitchen, stove and large refrigerator! For $80/ night you can get better with air b&b!

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We're happy to hear that our front desk staff were able to find you a room that suited your needs more accurately. We also apologize about the smell of cigarette smoke in your room --it is not okay to smoke in hotel rooms in Canada, and we fine or remove any guest who does so. We hope that you enjoyed your trip to our beautiful city, and wish you safe and happy travels.
