Stayed here for 3 nights 4 days this March while visiting the Thunder Bay Area. The hotel has a grandeur feel to it, it is historically an old CP Hotel (could of been a Fairmont) however it was not updated/ renovated to be as classy as one. I could see it being a 4 star property with some renovations, and...

The historical aspect and location was good with a nice view of the lake. The front desk staff were beyond amazing - very helpful, informative, friendly and supportive. The only downfall is that the walls are thin! Earplugs can drown out the train, but not noisy hotel guests (which they eventually quieted down on their own so there was no...

We traveled North for a slight getaway and stayed here for the night. Wonderful view from the 4th floor suite. Room was clean. Spacious. Bed comfortable. Couches comfortable and winged chairs easily moved to sit by the window to gaze out at the Lake. Perfect location for a walk down at the harbor and close to some good restaurants. As...

Best location, right in the heart of the beautiful waterfront district with so many great spots within a five minute walk. We usually rent the king suite for a stay, the price is unbelievable for the quality of the suite that you get. Rooms are clean, spacious, and quiet, the perfect trifecta! The restaurant in the hotel serves delectable meals,...

Stayed there for 3 nights. Price was right. Continental breakfast was mediocre but it was something. The room I was in was spacious, fairly updated. Beds were economy. Bathroom was old, plumbing a challenge, some taps worked backwards and the shower hot and cold were backwards. Making for a challenging shower. The water temperature fluctuated so working the taps would...

Best place to stay in Thunder Bay, Tony and his staff treated me very well. Wonderful views over the bay and to the Sleeping Giant! Location brilliant for downtown restaurants and nightlife, plus it's right on the waterfront.

Thunder Bay was the destination I chose to give my grade school age child the experience of driving from the USA to Canada. I wanted to find lodging that would allow us to do minimal driving while in the city and that wouldn't break the bank. Prince Arthur Waterfront met those specifications. It is centrally located, across the street from...
