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....

If I could, I would rate this place higher than a perfect. If I could, I would stay here every vacation and business trip. I will certainly try, but this place is in high demand.

Had a 3 night stay for work and it was a pleasant experience. Really thought the upscale-retro decor was cool. I had the "chill" themed room. The bed and linens were very nice, felt like at home, not your typical hotel linens. Additionally, we used the conference room for meetings. Highly recommend them, very well layed out. In house lunch...
