I booked through expedia & stayed for 2 nights. First, you will notice the rooms are "nonrefundable"- that is because as soon as you see your room & the hotel you will want to leave & get your money back.They make sure this is not possible.. Hotel California?
The rooms on the 4 th floor are EXTREMELY smoky. I requested a non smoking room but that was not available to me since I booked through expedia apparently. It appears that expedia customers are given the worse rooms in the hotel. The front desk suggested I should have booked "directly through the hotel" instead of going through Expedia - that way they would have been able to give me a better room apparently.
The general cleanliness of the bedding & room was poor.
The attitude of the front desk was not at all accomodating.
The free breakfast was a disappointment.
The room backed onto Macleod Trail & was noisy.
The stay was underwhelming. You are better off to go across the street to the Wingate. It may be a few dollars more but you get a better breakfast, free internet & a pleasant experience.
