    Very good

    The facility was beautiful also the rooms were clean and comfortable.

    I did not like the noise from the night club across the street

    The overall feel of the facility--high quality, refined and relaxed.The location--up on the hill made for great views of the harbour. The business centre was very convenient. The food (room service) was great. I especially liked the oatmeal in the morning--what a visually appealing and delicious treat! The spinach, mushroom, etc. salad rates very high also.

    Would have liked a more recent version of Microsoft word on the computers in the business Centre...some of my documents would not open (e.g., those with the extension"docx").

    Very good

    Location, cleanliness, modern, great parking, long time client. In the past I ahve been a client of this hotel many times for business purposes and had great service. Not this time.

    I was denied my provicial government discount and was very displeased. It was not until it went to the manager in he morning that the decision was reversed. The reason I was told that I was denied was because I booked on line. As I feel thisis an advertising tool, I feel that this was not a reason and that I am the same client I was am. In the morning however, I was told that I was denied as the hotel was booked to capacity. I have never heard of this before. The manager finally reversed the decision after lengthy diecussion but still charged me $10 extra over what the clerk told me was the government rate the night before. Very poor service and not an enjoyable stay. Unfortunate as I actually love to stay here.

    When booked, we had hoped for a hotel within walking distance of all our past memories - from the Citadel to the waterfront - and The Prince George fit the bill perfectly. We went to the Tattoo on Friday evening - and when booking, had no idea where the building centre holding the event was. Imagine how pleased we were to learn it was across the street!

    Missed a hotel bar....

    Friendly and helpful staff, a nice location, and a very good restaurant with other very good restaurants just down the block. Quite a comfortable bed and a decent shower.

    Convenient to resturants and World Trade Center. Staff were knowledgable, helpfull and friendly.

    On the hill in town. Walk to down to harbor was easy back up the hill could be taxing for some.

    Perfect

    Location and great staff.

    It would have been nice to have cookies in our room to go with the free Keurig coffee. Also, our twin room request, which I specified when I booked online with this 3rd party, did not reach the hotel. Receptionist said that is always the case with 3rd party bookings. Which seems odd to me. We were able to get our room choice, but that was more luck than planning apparently.
