Newly Renovated ... but froze at night
Walking into the hotel, everything seemed bright and fresh. The front desk clerk let me know the whole hotel was newly renovated. I loved that there was a Starbucks in the lobby – great for breakfast to go. My room was clean and bright. The towels were new and still mostly fluffy and the bed was super comfortable. I found the room service rates were really reasonable. I found with the TV you really need to stick to the channels on the card otherwise you’ll find yourself frustrated and feel like there aren’t any watchable channels… but if you use the card, you will be less frustrated. The internet was a bit spotty, sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Not great when I’m there for business and need to work in the evenings sometimes. My biggest complaint was the air conditioner. I think this is a common hotel complaint in general, and I’m usually fairly easy going about it, but not for this stay. It was pretty chilly in Langley and did need to use the heat. I found the air conditioning unit would blow warm air for a while, then just blow cold air. I eventually found if I cranked the heat to 24 at night, then get up a few hours later and switch it off, my room would be warm enough to sleep the rest of the night. The windows were pretty drafty and that didn’t help.
Hotel is well maintained and well located. I would consider the property to be at a “Two Star” level based on rather small room sizes and basic amenities. That being said, for a change the nightly price more accurately reflects this level versus many hotel properties that tend to err to high side. Check in/out was very smooth and interaction with hotel staff was professional and pleasant. Couple of minor hiccups (room key not coded correctly, TV remote not working) were both dealt with quickly to our satisfaction. Appears Hotel has been undergoing some upgrades/face lifts which seem to be very positive. I would return here if the opportunity should present itself in future.

I enjoyed the small amount of time I spent at this hotel. It primarily seems to be focused on the casino, which I didn’t particularly like, but the room was clean and comfortable. Despite eating at two different eating areas in the hotel, I found that there was not very many food options for the gluten-sensitive or gluten-allergic, which might be a concern for some people.
Went to a two day seminar for professional reasons and stayed the night. The venue was clean and had a pleasing new renovation to each room. The restaurants and food served at seminar will really good and they accommodated my allergies very well. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Spend a couple of nights in early Nov. Clean, ( fairly ) quiet, room was well kept up, no problems, all good.
Renovations are under way, it seems they are substantially complete in the areas I saw. Makes the place look fresh.
