So first the pros: Location is good, bed was reasonably comfortable, breakfast included.
Now, the cons: OLD hotel, which translates to tiny rooms, paper thin walls, slamming doors, musty smells. No A/C…just an oscillating fan. Wifi is Shaw open, which is useless for us. Multiple bars and clubs which meant an all-night party in the hallways on our floor. Continental breakfast was included, but not an ounce of protein anywhere – just a huge carb-fest. There are other hotels in the area….definitely check them out first!!!
