Great hotel on the waterfront. We paid extra for a full water view and it was worth it. The hotel is close to everything downtown. Watch the cruise ships come in from your room. We ate at both the pub and the restaurant and the food was great.

I walked into the spacious room and was delighted to see the large room with all that was needed AND I was lucky enough to have a harbor view! After a long journey it was great to be in a comfortable bed in lovely surroundings. The common areas are bright and the staff helpful. We bought breakfast vouchers and went...

We use Holiday Inn Express hotels regularly so, when we needed a room in Cape Breton on short notice, this Sydney Holiday Inn was a logical choice. We reserved a room with a view and I was disappointed to find that the front desk staff scratched out an appropriate room reservation and wrote in a less satisfactory one. The state...

It's a basic Holiday Inn hotel where you get what you expect. My room (a King bed) was fully equipped (fridge and Keurig), roomy and comfortable. The gym was ok, with 3 treadmills and one tv for all. Free breakfast with a basic buffet and decent menu to choose from if you wanted. The staff was friendly enough, didn't really...
