Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3Travellers3 Beautiful Stay as always
Once again, thank you for the perfect stay.
From check-in with Eva (thanks so much Eva) to Christmas Day check-out - perfect.
Had a much needed rest.....also, after enjoying this hotel for the past 10 years, have decided we have no reason to stay anywhere else when in this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by London92 Number one hotel in Kitchener!!
This is simply the best Hotel in Kitchener/waterloo. The service is excellent, the rooms are clean and the buffet breakfast is great. After a stressful day there is nothing better than enjoying the swimming pool and the sauna. I will definitely go back again in 2014. My home away from home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WaterlooVisitor An enjoyable hotel experience in Kitchener/Waterloo
What I noticed first was that each staff member greeted me when I arrived. The room was very clean and comfortable. Even though it was near a main highway, the noise was kept at a minimum. Settling my room was efficient and friendly. The staff was very helpful with the questions I asked. I had breakfasts and dinners there and enjoyed the meals. I especially appreciated the fact that the food came from the local farming community which made it particularly fresh and good. I was even given a pleasant farewell when I left. Even though my stay was only two nights, I'd be very happy to stay there again!

I recently stayed for 5 nights for work and found the staff to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The room I reserved was spacious and inviting. The hotel is close to a large shopping center that was very convenient when I had some downtime from work.

My experience at this holiday inn has been exceptional. The staff is very friendly & will go out of there way to make your stay as convenient as possible. The gym is perfect for a quick workout, never busy & provides the necessary equipment needed. Not a big fan of the hotel food but am very pleased with what they have to offer & pretty tasty!!

Very disappointed in this stay. Was put in the towers and had a long walk to front desk area. Was not offered an up grade (Platnuim) until 9:00pm after I was already in bed. My past stays in this hotel were much better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oves Great to be back
It has been some time since I have visted the K/W area (about 3 years). Upon arrival at the Front Desk of the Holiday Inn Kitchener-Waterloo, I was greeted by Eva who still remembered me. While getting my room set up, she called the Manager On Duty (Hassan) who soon appeared to greet me and welcome me back to the hotel.
Because it has been some time since staying here, I really did notice some of the great changes which have happened at the hotel. The new fitness centre looks great. Also love the new look for the breakfast buffet in the Restaurant and it's great to see you still support the local community by serving some of those great craft beer in the lounge.
I don't want to sound too overly nostalgic as every hotel has its challenges and this one is no exception. The difference here is that if ever a problem does arise they take care of it and make things right. I think this most likely has to do with the leadership and the culture which is inherently part of this hotel.
Thanks so much for the warm welcome and the friendliness of the entire hotel staff. Hope to be back in the near future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SmileysMR Slow to start
Recently stayed here with a hockey team. I will say this, the Staff was fantastic and accommodating - Well done to the team at the Holiday inn Kitchener-Waterloo!
Day one, the furnace didnt'y work, so we froze a wee bit as it was blowing cold air. Called for service at 6:00 a.m. and someone came around 1 p.m.
Restaurant - day one was weak and disappointing - we waited a really long time for food and since we needed to get to our next game, wasn't great. We did get compensated for the delay in receiving food, so this was nice customer service, although we would have preferred it on time.
Buffet was great for breakfast in the morning and their wraps and pizzas are fantastic. Day two was a much better experience.
Close to everything, rinks, shopping, restaurants.
It was slow to start, but they turned it around and i would recommend this hotel. FYI - BEST SLEEP EVER AT A HOTEL!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by auntant Comfortable bed, big bathroom, and friendly, helpful service
We had a good experience at this Holiday Inn. It's older and showing some wear, but our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was larger than at many Holiday Inns ... a great thing when husband and wife try to share the space! The beds and pillows were comfortable. The room was quiet ... nice for me since I enjoy sleeping in. My husband enjoyed the fitness room. Best of all, the staff we had contact with were friendly and helpful. The front desk staff gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant where we good get nice big salads.

Stayed in the tower portion. Although a little pricey, you can have an uninterrupted sleep as the hallways are noise free. The internet speed is quite good too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kristendawn27 Worst customer service experience
I had booked two rooms for Friday and Saturday. I cancelled the rooms for Friday around 10 am of the friday( way before the 6pm dead line for cancellation) I even confirmed that I still had reservation for two rooms for Saturday and was advised yes. When I went to check in Saturday I was advised that they could not locate the reservation. Then was told that I had checked our earlier Saturday. I'm not sure how that is possible considering I never checked in. After speaking with the manager, I was told that there was nothing they could do and there was no rooms left. I had then found out that my credit card had been charged for the Friday. I went back to the desk and advised them of that and they said it was reversed(it is still showing on my credit card though). After seeing that numerous other people had problems with reservations and were getting free rooms at the Cambridge holiday inn, I talked to the manager again and he explained that their problems were as a result of reservations and that mine was not a reservation issue and it was a system issue. I'm not sure how either were my fault. The reason why we wanted that hotel was because it was in a good location due to Oktoberfest and we had many other friends staying at this hotel. After a long talk with the manager we finally got the same service as the rest of the problem reservations- we got two free rooms at the Cambridge holiday inn. We then had to pay the extra charges for taxis for the extra 10-15 min drive.After the manager finally gave us the rooms, I was told that I am a good sales person and negotiator. I work in the customer service industry and whether it is a result of reservation or a system glitch, you have to take accountability for your system and employees. I have never had such a bad experience at a hotel and will never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Front desk staff were rude, room wasn't ready, I was there for an athletic event and didn't need the added stress. Will not recommend this particular location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly01 Excellent staff and service
I knew it felt like home when the moment that I entered the hotel. From the smiles on the front desk staff as I was greeted at check in to the housekeeping staff who helped me with my luggage with no hesitation.
When I arrived to my room , I was impressed with the size of the room, the pillow top mattress and the large flat screen tv...ordered room service , it was here before I new it and it was delicious.
The next night I decided to go down to the restaurant , which I was a bit nervous as I was dinning alone, but that feeling went away at the moment I entered the restaurant, the service was great, staff was friendly and the food and pricing exceeded my expectations.
I would stay at this hotel over any other hotel in the Kitchener area

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Babs118 Room not cleaned and over priced
The front desk staff were all very helpful and pleasant. However, the room hasn't been cleaned properly. There were items left in drawers and on the nightstand. The rooms themselves are showing their age and the HVAC system is temperamental at best. My company has booked me in there several times over the past year and the elevator call buttons still don't light up. A little thing but annoying.
