I was looking for a place to stay a little closer to downtown, but balancing price and location, we settled for the Best Western Northwestern. The advantage to being close to downtown is not having to hassle with parking, although often there is an added charge for that …. In the end, it worked out anyways because we ended up at a great mcrobrewery which we would have otherwise missed.
The Northwestern is really well decorated and if you don’t look outside, you’d think you were in a lodge somewhere ! There is a cute fish pond out front (they say you can even feed the fish !). The chair rails in all the hallways, which look to be lodgepole pine – very lodgey ! The lobby also hosts hot beverages all day and at 8pm – milk and cookies ! Although there is no bar, the front desk does have beer and wine available for purchase.
The room is comfortable with two queen sized beds and minifridge and coffee machine. I can’t remember if there is a microwave, but there is one available in the breakfast area, along with plates and cutlery.
Breakfast was the usual filling spread – eggs scrambled/hard boiled; sausages; diced potatoes; pastries; cereals/oatmeal; waffles; yogurt/toppings; apples/bananas/oranges and all of the condiments and hot beverages. Very nice hotel with a nice ambience. less
