Traveling with a teen and a dog makes finding accommodations a little difficult. I was grateful that I had booked this hotel a few months ahead of time as the night we arrived there wasn't a single room left in the hotel and the parking lot was jammed!

When we travel to the US, we make a point of staying at this hotel. It delivers on every front - easy check-in/checkout, no hassle pet policy, front desk staff are very attentive and helpful, rooms are clean and well stocked, great bed and convenient location. The front lobby and theme nights distinguishes this hotel from being a vanilla corporate...

We received a very warm welcome to the hotel and had a comfortable stay. We took a stroll under the highway and along the sea front to town which was pleasant. The location was also convenient for the reversing falls, a short drive away. Highly recommended.
