"Reasonably priced and close to Rogers Place and bars on Jasper Avenue. The hotel wasn't what I expected, though it was clean and the staff was friendly. The lobby was nice and updated, but the room was outdated and worn. The beds and pillows weren't comfortable. The shower in the 1st room smelled like sulfur or sewage; the front desk clerk was apologetic and moved us to a different room. The hair dryer caused a short circuit.

"We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary, so the staff gave us a room upgrade. Unfortunately, we heard a loud generator noise, and the heater rattled. The front desk clerk said they'd move our bags to another room while we were out, but when we returned the new clerk didn't know anything about it. We finally got a quiet room on the 3rd try and gave us a complimentary breakfast for our trouble. Our quiet room did get noisy at 8 AM due to construction on floors above ours.2017-10-13"

"I checked in late after a long flight, and the clerk said I could check out an hour late. No Do Not Disturb sign in the room, and a housekeeper walked in my room without knocking at 9 AM. An hour later, the front desk clerk called to see when I'd be leaving, waking me up again. The shower handles were about to fall off, and the water temperature was hard to control. The restaurant was expensive, though the service was excellent. Find another hotel.2016-09-30"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
