How to Get There
Nice room, beautiful chapel, great staff, rough sheets. We stayed in a junior suite and a regular two queen room two weekend nights for my nephew’s wedding a few weeks ago. Everything was just beautiful, and the wedding chapel and reception room were gorgeous. Even the waiting area where we went between the wedding and reception area for drinks and hor d'oeuvres was lovely. You could tell that the rooms were definitely once part of a monastery with arches and windows. So unusual and cool! We had a nice little room with arched entries with a table to the side of one of the bar areas for our large extended family where all of the little ones could eat and play without getting in the way of other adults guests. It was a perfect venue and so nice since we could just stay on the property. The two story bridal suite was perfect for our family gathering Friday night when we arrived. The brunch for the wedding guests on Sunday was lovely too. There were a couple of problems though. First was that the sheets were very rough for such a nice property. I would have brought my own if I had known since I’m like the princess and the pea when it comes to sleeping. The second was that the room phones weren’t working properly, and our family had lots of rooms. Since not everyone had their cell phones on, and we were on lots of different floors, that was a bit inconvenient since we had lots of kids of various ages with us going to different rooms to visit with family. It was a bit of a pain going up and down floors trying to track everyone down at times. I’m sure the phone problem is fixed now though. We had a number of hours before the wedding on Saturday and went to visit a historical fort (Fort Malden) in Amherstburg, Canada, so if you want to do that, be sure to take your passports. Again, the staff was great, and the venue was amazing. I’d love to stay there again.
The Inn is located in an old monastery. The grounds are lovely with waking gardens, a chapel (would be great for on site weddings), etc. as well as attached golf course.
There is plenty of free parking and the staff were always very friendly. Wifi worked well.
For a stay of more than one night, or for large numbers of international guests there are several small shortcommings which add up to a comfort level which does not match the level of hotel the inn presents itself as:
the closet is very small and one of those in which clothing is stacked front to back-very inconvienient and seems an odd choice for a venue which caters to wedding and convention crowds.
There were only two drawers in the room, both smallish and both set to pull only one third of the way out---making it difficult to really utlize them, and almost impossible to use for clothig without wrinkling things.
No iron, ironing board, or laundry facilities avialbale (again---for a hotel which attarcts people trying to dress nicely at weddings and conventions, seems very odd).
Literally only one towel rack and no hooks anywhere in the bathroom. The one rack/bar is over the vanity so no bath towel can hang there---not enough space (only about a foot from bar to vanity)--works ok for the hand towel though. So, there are all those signs about haning towels to reuse, but nowhere to actaully hang towels.
We draped towels over the door or top of shower anyway---and they were replaced, not resused, daily. Sigh. Apparently the talk about caring for the enviornment on the signs at the Inn are just that, talk.
We were there a week, during which time the printer in the bussiness center never worked (though the friendly staff were happy to print for me on their printer if i emailed what i needed)--aslo, that "center" is in what seems to have been a closet--the "desk" is too high for sitting comforabtly and too low for standing and the chair provided was a very hard, wooden, straight back chair. It made it difficult to get any work done there----the Hampton Inn at the airport had a far better work station.
We were at the hotel as part of a conference my husband was attending. The hotel requires every room to have a credit card on file, no cash depsosit at all was allowed instead. Not all of the international travellers had a cedit card (this is still not common in every part of the world). When my husband and I arrived we found his coworker unable to check in due to not having a card (in spite of having ample cash he was willing to hand over to hold in case of damage). In the end, my husband allowed his card to be used--which required filling out forms (inlcuding one which included the credit card code from the back in adddition to having swiped the card---totally not safe and unreasonable to make such demands of guests, and not having a cash option, while attracting conferences is a stunning lack of understanding of internatinal issues).
Overall--I think it is a lovely place and nice for 1-2 nights at most but there were several areas which fall short for bussiness travellers or those staying longer periods. All of which could be relatively easily and cheaply rectified if the hotel wished.
Stayed over at the Inn at St. John's last week for a business trip.
My trip was last minute and I was unable to book a room until I arrived. A few of my colleagues suggested the Inn at SJ's so I gave them a call.
Colin at the front desk answered and took my reservation. Not only did he ensure my reservation was made, he offered and arranged to have me picked up given how hectic my travels had been. Colin ensured i had a fantastic room, with a fantastic view and throughout my 3 days made sure everything was going well.
The morning of my departure, I was unable to thank Colin for his hospitality during my stay, but did meet the Hotel Manager, Ian. I had a wonderful conversation with Ian and shared my stay experience (very positive). I also ensured that Ian knew the reason for my fantastic stay was because of Colin.
Next time I travel to the Midwest from Toronto by car, i'll be sure to stop off and stay at this wonderful place.
I had never been to a Michigan before my trip to Plymouth for work. The firm reserved the Inn, and I had no idea what to expect. First, the historic and new buildings are nice on the drive up. You may ask yourself “is that a church?” You’d be right, as it is a historic chapel converted to conference event space and hotel with an attached to a gold course. The hotel lobby seems recently updated and comfortable. We got in around 9:30 am, and the hotel wasn’t able to check us in, so we settled into comfortable couches in the lobby and worked for a couple hours. There’s also a nice indoor pool, small gym, and restaurant right off the lobby. Also, there is a really nice garden in between the buildings.
Once checked in (took longer than I would’ve liked), the room was clean, comfortable, and appointed with all the things you’d need, ie, coffee machine, iron, desk, etc. the bed was comfortable, and the area is quiet, so noise is no issue. It’s not luxury but practical and comfortable.
The conference facilities are really nice. You should peak your head into the chapel. It’s historic and well preserved. Restaurant and food was good. Wait staff was courteous and available when you wanted something.
Overall I really enjoyed the hotel and space. It was pleasant and relaxing. I would look forward to going back.
Exceptionally poor attention to customers. Lack of care or concern. Can get better service at Holiday Inn. Interesting grounds but rooms and amenities (which weren't working properly) are not worth the price. HVAC system sounded like it was about to explode throughout the night.
