“Disaster at wing night”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Went for wings with the family. There was no idea of who the server for our table was and after we got our order taken we received the wrong drink order and it took 90 minutes for the food to arrive. Oh yeah, they forgot part of the food order! It was pretty obvious that the wait staff were summer students with no idea how to handle the job.

As you'll note from other reviewers this hotel is dated/aged/in need of updates. 20 years ago it would have been a nice place, and it probably hasn't been touched since then. At times I felt like I had gone back in time. I found the bed to be lumpy and didn't sleep too well. I would probably rate it a 2.5 if that rating was available since it is more of a "less than average" hotel than a "poor hotel." However, next time we travel through town I'll be looking elsewhere.

If you pay $10 more for the room, you can enjoy one facing the water. While in Fort on business I was able to enjoy the evening in the lawnchairs outside of my room. A nice way to end the workday. The hotel is a bit tired but the rooms are clean and in a very nice relaxing location. The path along the water is not far from the hotel and is a pleasant walk when the weather is nice. The hotel restaurant is excellent but can be busy some nights and reservations are sometimes recommended especially on "wing night".

Room Tip: Rooms on the water are worth the upcharge.

Stayed here for 3 days, as per another review I asked for a renovated room. Not sure if the room I got was renovated or not but it did feel dated to me. The air conditioner is a build in old style under the window so it works fine but i don't think you can sleep with it on as it is quite loud.

The place was clean and was quiet at night (with AC off) so slept well. Just could use a little bit of modernizing, or my room was an older one and the newer ones are more modernized, not sure. Wireless internet was good and worked well.

I would give the La Place Rendez Vous Hotel & Convention an 8.5/10 because the location is right on Rainy Lake which is really beautiful, a restaurant is located in the hotel which has some really good foods, a beach is also around called The Point which is a good place for the kids to relax (parents too), Everything is in driving distance to Downtown Fort Frances (5-8 minutes), west end (10 minutes), Couchiching Reserve (1 minute), International Falls,MN (10-15 minutes) depending on the border line up. A couple of problems with the hotel is the PRICE. It can be $150-200 per night for the rooms but the view is something spectacular to take in. If you don't like to walk long distances or don't drive or are budget savers, this hotel isn't for you. But if you are on a Romantic honeymoon, wanting to stay at a good quality hotel and spend a bit of money, be my guest because it's a good place. We've personally never stayed here recently but have gone to the restaurant and have talked to people who stayed here and we got the same data from all.
