Staycations and Ontario Getaways…

Enjoy A Spring Getaway With Your Family at C Hotel

That late winter funk can easily be kicked to the curb with a short and cheerful getaway that takes you away from home. And weekends or nights away with kids don’t need to be pricey, C Hotel in Hamilton has proven that!

When you’re out of the house – no matter what you’re doing – it’s a great escape from the ordinary. Add in a beautiful hotel with an indoor pool, a gift card towards a delicious dinner and a hotel suite for the night and you’re all set. Read on to hear about our experience, and why we think

Our suite was so spacious and allowed us to spread out and do our own thing at times.

Both Glam and Family-Friendly At The Same Time

When I found out about this deal, I immediately looked up photos on the hotel’s website. “Wow!” was my first thought. The hotel has a Little Italy / Rat Pack feel to it, with a touch of classy glam. Crystal chandeliers, rich colours, and above-average art in the hallway make you feel like you’ve stepped up from your standard hotel chain.

Our suite was beyond comfortable and offered many amenities. I loved the kitchenette with a full sink and fridge and microwave. It made meal and snack options easy and affordable.

The Play-By-Play of Our Stay at C Hotel in Hamilton

We stayed Friday to Saturday and when we arrived – it was the beginning of a snowstorm! Hamilton is just a hop, skip and a jump away from where I live, so it was easy to get to, even in less-than-ideal driving. We checked in right at 3 pm and headed up to our room – or should I say suite!? This room was one of the nicest we’ve stayed in yet.

I love having a kitchenette in a hotel because it makes meals and snacks unbelievably easy. My kids are huge snackers, so the fridge, microwave and sink were excellent to have on hand. We even had real plates, cutlery and glassware to use.

Along with the kitchenette, our room had a small dining table, loveseat and TV area. The coffee table gave us a spot to play cards and relax, without being in bed. Speaking of beds, we had two. One large queen bed was in the main space and there was another large queen in a separate room. This bonus room was great for giving our kids space from each other and allowing for my multiple late-night TV watchers to be happy.

To recap, our suite included:

  • 2 queen beds
  • 2 TVs
  • 2 dressers
  • dining table
  • loveseat
  • desk
  • kitchenette with mini fridge, microwave and sink
  • cutlery, plates, bowls and drinkware
  • large shower
  • large vanity area

Because of the aforementioned snowstorm we sadly didn’t get to experience the outdoor firepit and s’mores. But you will! So please have one for me in spirit.
