Holiday Inn Kingston - Waterfront
Travel Blogs from Kingston
29/8 Set off for Canada - very pretty drive through woodlands. Had my first drive on the wrong side - all went OK although John did look very pale!! Reached the border at Syracuse, and - needless to say - we were stopped at imigration and asked to go into a room. While we waited to be seen we were trying to decide what to do if one …

My tailbone really hurts when I tried to do core exercises.
This really sucks. Why couldn't I walk the stairs properly. Damn it.
I woke up at 330AM feeling hungry, so I cooked myself a small bowl of oats. Then, feeling bored, I watched a few episodes of Korean drama. Until 6AM, then I ate some bread and went back to sleep.
In the show, there's this girl who is scared of meeting people, she locks herself up in her house. She's pure and kind from the inside. There's another girl who kept pretending and trying to get attention from the guy she "likes". She tries ...

We left Kingston at 8:30 AM in order to make the 9:00 AM opening of the LaSalle Causeway Bridge, the southern gateway to the Rideau Canal. It was a clear and cold night and morning but the cloudless sky, sunshine, and no wind made for one of the nicest days we have had. The canal was mirror calm and the colors of the trees are just beginning to change.
The first part of the canal was like going through a channel in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Kingston - Waterfront
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
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!
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
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
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!!
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?
On a recent weekend getaway my husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kingston.
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.
Absolutely great hotel!!!
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
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.
