to Rewards Canada in past with flight reviews, lounge reviews and several Aeroplan articles.
Recently I completed a stay at the Delta Hotels by Marriott London Armouries on a trip for work in London, Ontario. The hotel is located on the corner of Waterloo street and Richmond street, right downtown near by the Citi Plaza Mall. I found the area no be very busy, and it was quiet at night during my stay.
When I arrived at the hotel, I wasn’t sure where to park, so I decided to park my car by the lobby door driveway. The lobby door itself was locked, however, there was a buzzer beside the door that notifies front desk to let you in. The check-in counter is right by the door, and for me the check-in process was seamless. The staff at check-in was friendly, and I believe the lady helping me was in training as another employee was shadowing her.
She didn’t mention the In Hotel Welcome Gift for being a Marriott Titanium elite. As my account default option is the bonus points, I gave her a pass on this due to it probably being her first few days in the position. I was offered two parking options: underground ($25) or the outside
parkade beside the building for ($15); I opted the former due to the
snow London was receiving at this time.
My first impression of this hotel was that it looked outdated based on
the way the lobby looks (see the next two photos). My room was 2007 on the 20th floor, the
Marriott Bonvoy elite level. There is also a club lounge located on this
floor, however during my stay it was closed due to COVID and there was no mention of an alternative option to the lounge (ie breakfast etc.)
Surprisingly, the room was spacious and modern for a hotel situated on an old historical military base. There was a king-size bed with a couch available in the room. There wasn’t much of a view, as my room was facing other buildings. Overall, I found that the room is good for business travelers.
There is a pool on the hotel’s second level, and the fitness studio in the basement. It is a great fitness studio that has everything you would need to get a good workout. I like to work out late and loved it during this stay as I worked out every night owing to the fact it was empty after 10:00 pm.
The second floor has memorabilia of the old army base and its history – a nice little free museum within the hotel!
The hotel does have a restaurant on the lobby floor however I didn’t get to try it out during this stay. And that was it for my stay! Overall, I was impressed by the hotel and will stay here again when I am back in London.
