STAY AT P.T.
ARRIVED LATE 1030 P.M. CLERK/OWNER CARRIED HEAVY SUITCASE UP 3 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. CLIENTS NICE ALSO. CLOSE TO CONFERENCE CENTRE 3 BLOCKS COULD WALK AND DID.
Glenna, ca2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Location is fantastic and the staff were super friendly and more than happy to help with restaurant recommendations or suggest things to do. The room was a bit warm because we were on the top floor in August with no ac but they supply a fan for the room so worked okay. There are a couple clubs within a block or so from the hotel so around closing time the street below was definitely noisy but honestly we just got a kick out of listening to the drunk people below yell at one another. All in all good value for what you get. Nice enough room, beautiful kitchen and an excellent location.

One-night stay
It was good, nice downtown location convenient to the waterfront, museum, gallery, library, restaurants and business establishments. The room and premises are clean and well-kept, but shared bathroom.
