It was the best value we've found so far. Our rooms were nice and big (with 2 private rooms in suite) and had everything needed - very professional. Considering it's a college residence during the fall and winter, I was surprised to see how presentable and how efficient they ran their hotel. The continental breakfast was also very nice and...

The only negative about this lovely place is if you do not have a car it is hard to to get anywhere without having either having family or having to get taxi's to get anywhere or trying to get buses or trains.

The only negative about this lovely hotel is that there is an $18 (Canadian) charge for parking. Why it isn't just added into the hotel's regular room rate is befuddling! The hotel is a bit overpriced, but we found it to be a lovely place to stay (our second visit while driving across Canada). The suite was restful and lovely;... More

It is a nice hotel room. You have everything you need especially if you will be busy and not sitting around in the room. The one complaint I would have is the blinds they're are practically useless if you're on the wrong side the building it's like they aren't even there.

Close to everything in Hamilton. Easy check in/drive by drop off but free parking is remote. Large lots near front doors are off limits. There are elevators to upper levels. Since this is a college dorm available only during summer season, rooms are spartan but clean. Double beds are very comfortable but almost too small for two adults. Linens are... More

We have stayed here twice. Both times, friendly service, comfy beds, and nice room with large fridge, micro and kitchen table. Room comes with small breakfast, downstairs. I think when the hotel is full, though, the breakfast needs two people to keep filling things--it was quite congested, and the one lady was running her feet off and couldn't keep up-we... More
