Great location (Elgin Street is known for it's bars and pubs), steps away from City Hall. The building itself is old, but it's maintained well. Staff onsite is incredibly friendly, and a pleasure to deal with. Hallways have dim lighting (bulbs need to be upgraded to be MUCH brighter; feels like a scene from a horror movie). The suites are very spacious, lots of amenities, feels like you're home away from home. The carpeting should be replaced with laminate or hardwood, but either way, don't walk with your bare feet in your suite. There's only one AC and it's in the living room. My suite had this "powered" vent that would suck some of the air from the living room to my room, but it didn't work very well (but the living room was nice and cool). They have cooling fans in the closet of the bedroom if you want additional cooling. All in all, I would stay here again. It'd be nice if the property had brighter hallways and no carpeting in the suites, but other than that will definitely come back (definitely worth the price).
