The restaurant was inviting and the rooms very comfortable and affordable for my business trip. The view of the harbour was beautiful and easy access to walk along the seawalk or to the downtown core.

I dunno maybe it's me. I guess I can be picky. But every hour I could hear the clock outside on the water way outside do it's chime. That would be ok but then it would chime a long song like o Christmas tree? At 8 pm at night? On January 31st?!? Lol. I was there 3 days. I prefer...

Thank you for taking the time to write a very detail survey on your stay. The comments are not what I would like to read, however at least it's something that we can improve on. I will have to check on the clock that strikes at 8:00 pm, never noticed it chime or can't hear it at the front desk....

The staff now knows me well. They are great and always make it easy for checking in and getting to my room. The wait staff are always professional and pleasant and know my preferences. Rooms are quiet, comfortable and (more importantly) safe. I always enjoy my stays.

We were there for a night's staycation and symphony performance. The staff gave us a lovely free upgrade, with a view which was very thoughtful. Clean room, and attentive staff. Had a nice sleep in too!

I come at least once a week to Minnoz. The menu selection has gone from wonderful to mundane. Nothing special especially for the price. I live and work downtown and used to love to come after work or in Sunday afternoon for wine and appetizers. I've been sitting here now for a half hour waiting for someone to ask me...
