I enjoyed the attitude of the front desk staff
Too hot and could not adjust the ac to cool it down enough
I liked the hotel's proximity to dining, shopping and the Health Sciences Centre. The hotel is easy to get to from outside the city, even during rush hour. The beds are very comfortable.
I know that the pool and exercise area need to be maintained at some time during the day. I would prefer to use the pool and exercise area between 6:00 A.M. and 8:00 A.M. weekdays.
the restaurant food was good and the staff was very effecient
being right beside route 90 in winnipeg I found the room very noisy and had a hard time sleeping
Convenient location, quick check in, quick check out, wheelchair friendly automatic doors, somewhat cheap breakfast.
Poor wheelchair access to bathroom for room with 2 double beds (2 beds needed). Dead batteries in tv remote control ... first time using equipment one wonders "am I to stupid to figure this tv out" or "is this a problem with the equipment".
The shuttle service provided for the trips to the health sciences centre. Friendly shuttle drivers, front desk clerks. Room service. and bar staff were pleasant.
inconsistency in housekeeping. coffee/tea supply were never replenished in the 7 nights we stayed. Cups were replenished once in 5 days then I had to leave a note to ask for cups. Bath tub isn't always raised clean during our stay.
Location. I find it a very confortable place to be. The pool is great! Friendly people. Home away from home fEeling
Convenient down town.
Two females stayed in the room. There was not nearly enough sampoo and cream rinse for our hair.
1. The hotel cannot my reservation, I was asked to call bookings.com to clarify reservation when a simple check at their fax machine could've saved us time and frustration. 2. On checkout, I was charged a higher rate, not the rate that bookings.com confirmed. I went back to inquire at the desk regarding the mistake and the female staff who initially was helping me snapped back at me when I was trying to show her the e-mail confirmation from bookings.com. She said she was helping another customer but she wasn't with anyone when I first approached her. The lady who helped me in the end corrected the mistake and apologized but my whole experience with this hotel had already been a disaster from beginning to end. Will not use this hotel again and I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.
the king size room was perfect. large room with sitting area was wonderful. washroom was also larger then expected. overall was pleasantly surprised.
The fact that the hotel was close to my home in Winnipeg - I was having renovations done to the bathroom and only needed bathroom facilities. My mainfloor room had a door directly to the outside so I could let my dog outside without going through the hotel.
Smell/cleanliness of room, noise from Kenaston overpass (it felt like I was right on the interstate), fridge froze all of my drinks and then they exploded inside fridge, bathroom was dirty right from the start (this was my main beef - I paid good money for only the use of a bathroom and I wish it could have just been clean!
Great hotel...nice lobby. Pools is very nice
Be careful about being near a room close to the pool....the windows face the pool and you can hear people.
