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.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Kingston - Waterfront were extremely friendly, helpful, and made sure to follow Covid protocols. I stayed in a room overlooking the beautiful lake, and the view did not disappoint! The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The hotel is perfectly located downtown, close to restaurants and bars. My friend and I were within walking distance of all of Kingston's nightlife and had an amazing time. Will definitely be staying here again the next time I'm in town!

I recently stayed at this property and loved it! What made my stay so great? The renovated room, waterfront harbor view and overall location! We went out for dinner and it was easy walking distance to many restaurants and pubs. The room was also very clean and the front desk staff extremely helpful and kind. Thank you for a great stay, we will be back!
