Kudos for Kingston

It’s always great to hear nice things about the city you live in, especially when it comes from visitors. Below are a couple of great examples of people loving Kingston

On behalf of my friends Julia and Aisling, I would like to sincerely thank you for the generous rate that you gave us on the weekend. The suite [at the Four Points by Sheraton] was perfect... we spent so much time in the room catching up with each other (as only girlfriends can). It was ideal having the separate living room.

Before leaving the hotel on Sunday, we decided to make this an annual event and booked our reservation for next November. Thank you for giving us a great rate on the room - I received an voice mail from Daniel today and an email from guest services as well. We can't wait to come back! We enjoyed Kingston as a city... there is so much character. We spent Saturday afternoon at the Dolce Bella spa which was lovely. We'll go back there next year again as well!

Thanks again, Greg. I just wanted to make sure that your efforts are most appreciated!!

Kind regards,
Marcia Cudmore

Here’s a link to another bloggers thoughts on Kingston in winter


The countdown has long been underway but with only a couple of weeks to go the time left until the Olympic Torch comes to Kingston almost upon us. On December 14th the torch won’t just be passing through the city but because Kingston’s designation as a “celebration site” it will hang around for a few hours of Olympic festivities.

Just a few blocks form the Holiday Inn at Spring Market Square there will be an introduction from the Vancouver Olympic Torch Relay Committee at 6pm with live music and performances leading up to the arrival of the torch at 7pm.

Someone is Coming to Town Tomorrow

Christmas is my favourite time of year I usually try to hold off decorating the house until December but five weeks before Christmas and its all decked out. But very soon all of Kingston will be feeling the Christmas vibe when Santa roles through town for the Santa Clause Parade tomorrow. Grab a hot chocolate and find a spot on Princess St. (from the Kingston Centre to the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront) to enjoy the bands, baton twirlers, floats, free candy and of course the big man himself.
