The property was nice, but needs updates. The lighting in the suite we had was very dim. Hard to get ready by. We had a great view of Lake Superior though. We were on the street side which could be noisy at night. The walk-in shower needed a longer curtain. The whole bathroom floor was wet. It was in a nice location in Canal Park where we could walk to many things. There were some newer suites that had upgraded amenities so it will depend on which one you are assigned.

I liked the area but the rooms had damaged things in each room and wasn't the cleanest either.

Loved the area and unique atmosphere of the neighborhood. Very spacious suites. The card scanner for the elevator very rarely worked, even after having the cards replaced multiple times. Water pressure in shower was lacking and toilets very tiny.

Good space, lots of dog hair on furniture. Heat was not turned on. Dirty pad for pull out mattress on couch. Breakfast not managed until after staff was informed of need. Decent food for breakfast. Staff helpful for multiple requests. Lots of dogs, but all well behaved.

Pool area was nice. Entire facility needs an upgrade and allowing dogs in the hotel is unacceptable.

I really wish I'd been told the room we were in had no windows. And there are lots of rooms with no windows there.

I like the fact that every room had a kitchenette, but the bathroom light was burning out/ flickering and there wasn’t a maintenance person available until the next day to fix it.
