Stayed here for the location and the view. Great overlooking the water, it was also a little pricey I thought compared to other hotels. A big plus was the balcony. The room was a little small, but had been renovated, bed was comfy. The bathroom was very small and almost no bathtub, further the water was luke warm at best for the shower. Went to the pool which was ice cold so no swim. Check in was fast and efficient, staff was friendly. They also charge you $20 for parking.

In Kingston for one night so my daughter could tour Queens University. This hotel was great!! Clean and modern. 5 minute drive to Queens. Splurge and pay for the parking and breakfast package up front. You will save on both and the breakfast at the hotel restaurant is amazing!! We also had a great dinner there (but note they are not open for dinner on Sundays). Walkable to many restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay here again!

I stayed at the holiday in March 8th to the 12th 2021. I booked in a block of rooms for a business training event. I dealt with the Manager Erin Finucan. Erin is absolutely one of the best hotel managers I have ever dealt with. My business is classified under “Essential Workers” and it requires us to travel across Ontario. I stay in hotels along with my colleagues on average 90-120 nights a year. I do get to stay in Kingston at least 5 weeks out of that year. Erin makes booking a group in very non stressful. Her hotel rates are very reasonable and she is always there to great us with a friendly smile. The hotel has recently been renovated. The renovations are great. The view from the hotel is unreal. Each room has a balcony. I added a photograph I took last week during my stay. Absolutely awesome! The front desk staff, the servers at the newly renovated restaurant/patio and cleaning staff are all top notch. Wait until you experience the new patio! The Covid 19 policies and restrictions that Erin has put in place make the hotel a very safe experience when staying there. I will be honest some of my colleagues do stay at Marriott Hotels when in other cities on occasion. but when they come to Kingston they all book into the Holiday Inn Waterfront. My colleagues all have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. The positive experiences have more and more of my colleagues supporting IHG on a regular basis. Erin, keep up the great work you do. It definitely makes my job organizing meetings and training a lot easier when I deal with you and stay at the Holiday Inn Waterfront. Regards Steve

Great location by waterfront. Room had view of waterfront, bridge and RMC. Would have been nice in summer. Hotel and room are typical Holiday Inn, nothing exceptional but no surprises. Best part of stay was friendly staff at reception and in restaurant. Food in restaurant for dinner and breakfast were very good.
