This in city hotel was perfectly situated for exploration of Charlottetown.. Great restaurants within 5 minute walking distance. Museums, galleries, theater, bookstores ALL within 10 minute stroll. No scenic views from windows, no beaches close by but a perfectly wonderful hotel for city wanderings! I was delighted.

Great place to stay. This was the second time we have been there and the first time that we have gone to the same place in 49 year ! The staff was friendly and very helpful. We were talking with them about a place to eat that had an hour wait if you didn't have a reservation so we had to go elsewhere the day before. They offered to make the reservation for us when they opened and everything was done as promised. Mariel at the front desk was great and gave us a lot of information when we were talking with her about different things in the area

The staff was extremely kind to me before and after too brief a stay for one night before a difficult 3am exit for the airport. They made me feel at home and secure and cared for with memorable acts of goodness like a doggie back of snacks and coffee at 3am after extra wake-up calls to make sure I didn't miss my taxi and my flight. The accommodations were first class and affordable. Highest recommendation.

Great place to stay

Pros: Friendly helpful staff. Free breakfast had cereal, 3 different juices, different flavored scones and muffins everyday and english muffins,bread,bagels
Location: Located down town within walking distance to places to eat and shows. The food ads in the room book usually tell you how long of a walk it is to eat.
Hotel staff were very friendly and went out of there way to give you information you needed. Asked about a place to eat about an hours drive and she said it should be open because the tourist season was just starting and some places didn't open till the beginning of june. She went and called the place and came back with a Google map with instructions in about 5 minutes. They have a Go Green policy that if you don't need clean towels everyday you can pick days you don't need your room cleaned and you get a voucher at the service desk that will give you a $10.00 coupon that is good at about 8 places to eat. Most places to eat less than 15 minute walk. Down town map very easy to use.
