We understand things happen and we are happy to make a one booking time / date change for you complimentary if in the same room. Any additional changes will incur a charge of $25 +hst per request. If you are changing your reservation to a different room, applicable fees will apply.
A face covering is mandatory in all common areas of the building for anyone older than 2 years of age. This includes front foyer, elevator, stairwell, and reception area.
Once you are inside your reserved room, the face covering may be removed. Sanitization stations are placed in every room, along the hallway, and in both washrooms. Our service representatives will continually sanitize and wipe down all common areas and high contact surfaces.
We have ample free parking both in front and behind our building, plus free parking along Performance Drive. When parking behind the building, it is recommended that you unload all your belongings inside first as there is no access to the building from the back.
The studio, which is located on the second floor, is accessible by elevator. There is also an extra wide staircase if needed to move bigger furniture pieces.
Our studio has free Wi-Fi for all guests. The username/password for the Wi-Fi is located at the reception desk.
We have two washrooms available for guest use. One is a regular two-piece and the other is a barrier-free/accessible washroom. Both washrooms are unisex.
We ask that you are respectful of other people, and that you ensure you leave the area clean for the next person to use.
The washrooms are cleaned hourly by our service representatives as well.
