My first impression of this hotel was so positive. There is memorabilia all over the walls and lobby area that make the name 'Retro Hotel' come to life. The attention to detail is quite impressive. The room I am in has high ceilings and is tastefully decorated. I haven't showered yet but the bed is super comfortable and the room...

It's a one of a kind experience that you will love. The rooms are fabulous and the staff is very accommodating. There really is no other place like it with the charm that it offers. The themed rooms offer a different experience each time you stay.

Stayed here recently and got the town and country room. An amazing room; but all rooms I've seen so far have been amazing! The bed in our room was one of the most comfortable I've slept in and the shower was one I'd love to have in my home! Loved the little things that are left for guests such as...

I echo every word in previous reviews - what else could possibly be said about this place? I booked the Log Cabin for my boyfriend's birthday this weekend, and we delayed check out as long as possible. Absolutely brilliant concept behind these suites and the rest of the decor.

FANTASTIC!! We loved this place from the time we pulled into the parking lot which is right behind the Hotel. Walking through the halls to the lobby is such a fun experience, memorabilia everywhere, and the lobby is just plain awesome. Everywhere you look, walls, floor, furnishings are just remarkable. We reserved the King William Suite which made us feel...

The hotel was second to none, each room has it's own look and therefore it's own character. Desk staff was great, helpful. Visited restaurant for dinner and again for room service, meals great and so was staff. Will definitely be back.

We were on our boutique tour of SW Ontario and happened upon this noteworthy hotel in the heart of Chatham. Evidently the interior design is influenced by the co-owners at the classic car restoration RM group. Their funky influence is everywhere. Retired coin operated machines, 3D art and retro furniture enhance the ambiance of this fully revamped old downtown hotel....
