    Grand old hotel

    by

    I've stayed in this hotel for many reasons. I got married here, I've been to conferences here. saw bands play and partied hard here. It full of winding corridors that remind you of a spooky horror movie but the rooms are well kept and the staff are great.

    Unique Quality: There is a pub in the basement that used to be used during prohabition by real rum runners. The food is terrific and they even host Yuk yuk's. There is also a Coffee Culture inside the hotel, an old fashioned barber shop and a cigar shop. You get free day passes to Good Life across the street with your stay.

Travel Tips for Kitchener

Kitchener

"Victoria Park"

Victoria Park is the heartbeat of Kitchener, located downtown, just a short walk from City Hall on either side of Courtland Avenue between Victoria Street South and Queen Street South. It is the most popular and largest park (59 acres) in the city, a very serene place to visit.

In an effort to display loyalty to the Queen Victoria, a statue was placed in the park after the city's name was changed from Berlin to Kitchener. Victoria Park boasts beautiful rose gardens and a historic Clock Tower, at the Gaukel Street entrance.

The tower is 36 feet in height and weighs 75 tons. It is capped by a copper dome and large flagpole. The clock tower bell, equal in size to the Liberty Bell of Philadelphia, was purchased by the Berlin (later renamed Kitchener) town council 1876 from a New York firm. It first rang from the tower of the town's fire hall, and then moved to City Hall in 1924 where it stood between the pillars of the clock tower until demolition occurred.

The bell and clock tower were then retired to a city yard. Each stone was numbered with the hope that the tower would someday be re-assembled. After years of planning, re-construction took place in 1995. The clock's four faces were re-built, the mechanism was repaired and the base was accurately reconstructed.

"What can we do in the park?"

The park can offer:

Soccer/football field
2 horseshoe pits
Shuffleboard
