Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Kingston - Waterfront

Charming Location

from

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a tour of Ontario & Quebec. Lovely location right on the lake shore. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel was clean and our room overlooked the Marina - allowing us to make good use of the balcony. Have stayed in Holiday Inns in America & Europe before and have always been a bit disappointed as their standards are variable but this was not the case here. I do feel,however, that the price was a bit steep - this was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on our tour and this included city centre hotels in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Kingston is a very pretty little town with a good selection of restaurants and shops within a five minute walk from the hotel.

Loved the hotel

from

We spent three nights there, the view is stunning, the staff is very very

friendly and helpful. Parking is quite cheap (CAD 5 per night). The rooms

are lovely. I reccommend it for anyone who is ready to pay a bit more.

Why Canada's Holiday Inns are great!

from

This is one of my favourite hotels, and definately the best one in Kingston. The location is beautiful, right on the waterfront, overlooking the park and marina. Staff are friendly, and rooms are always clean and look brand new.

The rates can get high in the summer, but its their prime season and if people are willing to pay, I suppose you can't blame them. Although I was taken back the first time, afterall, it is Kingston.

Charming hotel, great place to stay, one reason why I love Canadian Holiday Inns. Far different from their US counterparts. Clean, good service, and great value. Check out this one, the one in Peterborough, downtown Toronto or the new Sudbury one and you'll see what I mean. These places are second to none!

My favourite place to stay

from

Regularly on business in Kingston and I always stay at the Holiday Inn. I love the rooms, the staff and the location. Can't beat a balcony right over the water.

This hotel knows its key attribute, its waterfront location, and does a good job at highlighting it and using it as a competitive advantage. I will continue to stay here on my trips to Kingston.

Keep up the good work!

First Class All The Way

from

I stayed at the Holiday Inn on a recent trip through Kingston on my way to Ottawa. As a person walking-in without a reservation, sometimes I am skeptical as to the kind of room I might get, but the room was gorgeous. Spaciousm king size bed which overlooked the water and harbour. I can only imagine how nice it would be in the summer when someone could take advantage of the balcony and chairs.

Great staff, clean hotel, heated washroom floors, HUGE fitness centre (biggest I think Ive seen in a hotel). All in all, this hotel is first class all the way.

Sports Team Central!!

from

The city is beautiful but we were inundated with teenage girls hockey or something. The view was nice and the location is good. Close to many bars & restaurants. Are all Kingston hotels so expensive?

Gorgeous city, great hotel

from

On a recent weekend getaway my husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kingston.

It was absolutely lovely. 2 big pools, one outside right beside the lake (felt like a resort, if only there was a swim-up bar, haha) and one inside.

The biggest fitness area my husband and I have ever seen in a hotel with friendly attendants.

The hotel was right next door to cruise ship docks and we highly recommend the 1000 Islands DInner Cruise we took. Food and entertainment were excellent, and the scenery was spectacular!

Clean rooms, nice big balconies with furniture and a contemporary but inviting lobby and Front Desk staff.

We checked out a few hotels before we chose this one, and glad we did. This hotel definately deserves to be number one!

Unparalleled service, views and value!

Great hotel, great vacation!

from

On a recent trip through Ontario we had the great pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn. From moment to end the stay was perfect! The lobby was modern and clean. The Front Desk attendant Tami was VERY helpful and accomodating. At each encounter with the reception desk we were greeted with a friendly smile and willingness to serve.

We had an opportunity to enjoy the waterfront patio/lounge and a great band they had playing on the Friday evening. The rooms were very spacious, had a nice sofa and also a beautiful balcony to sit out on and overlook the water. (The balcony is right over the water and if you look down, all you see is the LAKE!!!!) It was gorgeous!

Rooms were very clean, washrooms had heated floors (nice in the mornings) but the most important thing was all the staff genuinely seemed like they were happy to see you, and really wanted to help!

This is by far the BEST Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in. It should be a Crowne Plaza or Intercontinental!

Absolutely great hotel!!!

from

This hotel is ultra convenient to all the great shopping and dining in Kingston. Very clean and attractive. Staff friendly and efficient. We had a great room with an excellent waterfront view. We will stay there again and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Kingston!

Entirely loved our stay

from

My fian'ce and I found our stay in this beautiful, luxurious, elegant hotel quite relaxing and peaceful. We plan to use this hotel more in the near future. The room was large and airy,with a quiet ambience, overlooking the lake. In the evening we sat on the porch, to hear music from live bands. We had a romantic stay and regained our perspective on life there. management was very fasmiliar with the town and very helpful and friendly.

Introduction to Canadian life: A hockey game

A travel blog entry by anouk03 on Jan 21, 2015

January 9, 2015: One of the faculties of the university had organized a trip to a hockey game for us. For the Dutchies, hockey is not field hockey here, it is ice hockey and this difference in naming is completely self-explanatory after having lived here for 2 weeks, during which temperature was above zero for maybe 24 to 48 hours in total.

The game that I went to was between the Frontenacs (the local team of Kingston) and Oshawa. Literally having zero knowledge of hockey up ...

... out there had been an explosion and everyone was evacuating the building! (Nothing to do with Rick and toast!).
Friday we headed out of town and after a while on the freeway turned off onto Route 33 which was beautiful! Vineyards and along side Lake Ontario. Part of the road was a free ferry. Drove through Picton and Wellington without getting our tyres wet! Spent the night at Kingston on the mouth of the St Lawrence River. ...

At least two solitudes

During the initial Air Transat hop to Montreal, I think someone opened a window, because as the outside temperature approached minus 50, the cabin temperature lagged only slightly. On the tarmac in Montreal, the rain came in. Some passengers huddled together to build a fire using items from the snacks menu, but they were not quite stale enough to produce much warmth.

Daylight Saving Time

It was too cold and we had too much homework.
So Xinyi and I stayed home all weekend (except for the short trip to FoodBasic to get some groceries)

On saturday night, DST ended. We have to adjust back one hour later.

I didn't know about DST until I came to Canada.
