Getting Here

Kingston is basically equidistant between Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.  It takes 2-3 hours to drive depending on traffic and your driving habits.

Driving directions from 401:  Take exit 619 – Montreal Street and travel south on Montreal Street 5.2 km to Princess Street.  Turn left on Princess Street (one way street) and travel to the end of the street (about .6 km).  Hotel is the last building before you drive into the water. 

Reminder:  Kingston does have an airport and a train station if you prefer those travel methods or Cheryl can connect you with our marina if you’d like to come by boat!

Food, Glorious Food

Kingston has more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in Ontario so finding a great meal is never a problem! Cheryl has made preliminary arrangements for our dinner on Thursday evening in keeping with Canada’s, and Kingston’s, 150th birthday.

The dinner venue is on the main floor of Sir John's Public House, within walking distance of the hotel. It is a small casual pub that is in the building that used to serve as Sir John A. Macdonald's law office - historic and fun! There are 6 choices of main course which should cover all tastes!
