            Staff, hot pool, fireplace

            Absence of minibars or refrigerators in the rooms

          • Family with children
            7.4

            We enjoyed our stay and were very happy with the services and staff. The beds were very comfortable and the room was clean. The rates were reasonable and it was a short walk to the shops downtown.

            It would have been nice to have a mini - fridge in the room.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The Red Earth Spa is nice

            A bit dated, extemly noisy. The walls aren't sound barriers at al l!!!

          • Family with children
            9.2

            We loved the convenient location, and the quality of the room. The Keg Restaurant situated in the lobby- our favorite restaurant. The coupon book given to us by the staff- has a free cheesecake coupon from The Keg when you order an entree. Loved the free underground parking.

            Two things we did not like- toilet was situated too close to the counter and made for an awkward position. The hallway carpets need replacing.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            It was a nice hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our brief stay.

            No air conditioning in the rooms only one small fan that only blew in one direction. The pictures on the website were a little deceiving with the size of the pool, and you need to clarify that it is a hot pool, extremely hot pool, and not for swimming in.

          • Couple
            8.8

            I thought it was nice and the staff was really great. The location was really good to. Overall it but it was nice, and really enjoyable and nice. I would stay there again.

            The only thing I didnt care for was some of the the decor in the room (wall paper etc.) it was sort of different from what I expected. I thought it looked a little bit nicer in the pics.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            We get an upgrade without any question, because the Pool didn't work. The Room was big and we sleep verry well in our beds.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Nice rooms, fine dining onsite, huge hot tub. The location is fair, a half mile or so walk to downtown. Free parking and Internet.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            When we arrived, the power was out for the entire city. The hotel staff did a great job of getting us checked in under difficult circumstances for them. They were professional but friendly and I loved the fact that they were giving everyone glow sticks to light the way. The restaurant put out veggies and dip for everyone in the lobby - that was a very nice thoughtful touch. No power could have been a negative, but the staff made it very positive.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            There wasn't much to like, the look and style were amazing, the hotel felt dirty and had a cold feeling about it! the hot pools were very dirty with sand and little rocks, hot pool had lots of algea and gunk on the bubbles, I had a seriously itchy rash after leaving the hot pools, we were also unable to use the spa service due to no availability.

            The decor look!!!

          • Group of friends
            2.4

            has no airconditoning,no microwave .Price of rooms too high, open shower no curtain.

            7.4

            Room was comfortable and clean. As a female senior travelling alone I appreciated the underground parking. Felt safe. Meals at the Keg were excellent and the staff efficient and friendy

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            nice hot tub, decent room and reasonably priced. Not the greatest staff but ok.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Underground parking is very convenient - busy on weekend though, tough to get a spot. Great having The Keg in house!

          • Older travelers
            5.8
