My mom and I were driving from St. John's to Edmonton and ended up getting stuck in Ontario in an bad ice storm. I am so happy we braved the icy roads to Thunder Bay. When we called it was the only hotel in town with vacancy (one room) so we were already off to a great start. When we...

I stayed here for 2 weeks while my wife convalesced at St. Joseph's Hospital, a 10 minute walk away. A continental breakfast was included. This was very nice and included scrambled eggs, sausage, mixed fruit, etc.The room itself is large with lots of room but the bathroom is normal sized with old taps on the sink. This is my only...

Loved the view. Old hotel with lots of character. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Thunder Bay. The downtown area had lots of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Was near several public sculptures.

This hotel is old, although they have done some renovations to it. After checking in, I walked into my room and all the lamps were unplugged from the walls, and one of them was even broken and had the lamp shade hanging off of it. The carpet is old and dirty and the walls are very thin and you can...

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...

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,...
