I was staying in Charlottetown for a week while working in PEI and stayed here. I hadn't been here before so when I booked my room online I picked a room with a kitchenette and I wasn't aware that they have 3 buildings. When I arrived I learned that my room was not in the main hotel building but rather in one of the two houses that they have their suites in.
I was surprised, but did not mind. It was actually quite nice the building and room sort of made it feel like I was staying at a Charlottetown Bed and Breakfast. The room was very spacious, great for spreading out especially if you're staying somewhere for an extended period of time. The kitchenette was nice, although there was only a microwave and toaster to cook with, no stove. There was a full size fridge though which was appreciated. The bathroom was nice, although I would have liked to have a little more counter space and not just a pedestal sink.
The location was great. Very convenient for the places I needed to go to for work in town and walking distances to a lot of great restaurants or the waterfront. Even though my room looked out towards a street it was quiet at night I had no trouble sleeping.
The service here was great. I got a newspaper under my door each morning during the week. I never saw them, but the housekeepers did a fantastic job keeping my room tidy. I even returned to find they'd washed the dishes for me which I had been intending to do when I returned from work.
There are guest laundry services on site and I took advantage of that. There is also a restaurant on site here and you can order room service, although this was not something I did during my stay here (maybe next time).
Overall a great stay and somewhere I will definitely stay at again next time I am in Charlottetown
When I phoned well ahead to book a suite, I was told that the main part of the hotel was fully booked but that there was a charming King suite available in an adjacent building (called Holland Grove House). It turned out that this annex, along with another building, was only steps from the main hotel but felt much more intimate and private. Our large but cozy suite lived up to its glowing description. It contained a comfortable four poster bed with good quality linens, two armchairs in a seated area, a desk and bureau with lots of drawers and a gas fireplace. The only unwanted item, by us anyway, was a footed bathtub out in the open near the bed. It made us laugh, though, and was a handy place to put our extra towels, of which we were given more than enough. The adjoining kitchen area was spacious with a table and two chairs, a large refrigerator and some much appreciated kitchen items such as flatware, dishes and glasses. Even dishwashing soap was supplied which we have found to be rare. We always bring our own sponge. Bottles of a decent red and white wine were available at $25 each and, as it turned out, we were grateful for the white. The bathroom was fine but the shower stall could stand some updating. We really appreciated the number of towel racks which seem to be lacking in the more modern hotels these days. Even though overlooking Fitzroy Street, the suite was very quiet. It would have been nice to open the lovely large windows but we understand the security issues involved with that. The restaurant in the main hotel was fine (we had one dinner) and the breakfast very good. It was nice having real dishes and mugs for breakfast but a shame that the flatware was a flimsy plastic. Last, but not least, the hotel is in an excellent location within walking distance to downtown and the historic district. If we have the chance to return to Fredericton, we will certainly stay here again and request the same room.
