The Franklin Hotel, St. John's
Don't be late.
I showed up late to the hotel due to flight delays. They had a sign on the door as to a number to call. When I called the number, no one answered. I called, and when they tried, they received no answer. As a result, I ended up booking at another hotel. The Franklin did call the next day and apologized.

Good Stay
The location is excellent for downtown dining and drinking in St. John's. Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is above the Black Sea restaurant. The hotel is not full service; it is more like renting an executive apartment. Furnishings are modern and the bed was comfortable. Internet was fast, and there were plenty of channels on the television.
