Love the location - right on the lake - view of lake & park ( all lit up for Christmas!) I love that there are windows that open - could hear crashing of waves (bad ice storm while I was there) Wish they had better food in the hotel restaurant - it's mediocre at best (& menu is much more limited than the menu on line)

Location was great. I went with "lake view" room. Was unable to see anything as trees blocked view. The bed and furnishings were very comfortable. Unfortunately when I went to have a bath the whole piece blew off :( The food at the restaurant was great. Nice portions at a decent price. Pool and fitness area was very nice and clean as well. The hallway carpets are very interesting, hard on the eyes but were clean.

The location is great.

Not impressed by this hotel. It was very noisy. Before 8:30am, the renovation started with loud drilling by our room. The room was not comfortable, there is only one chair and the bed was not great. The parking sticker issued by the hotel was too small, which resulted in us getting a $45 parking ticket. The hotel was not responsible for our ticket and we will have to deal with it directly with the city of Burlington.

Excellent deal.

Pros: Great staff and location
Cons: Bathroom needed updating.
Found this hotel on special. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a little worn out though. Great area to walk around the lake at night or hit the shops and restaurants. Nice location with easy access between Niagara Falls and Toronto. If we are in the area again, we will definitely look to see if this is available.
