The flight over was enjoyable but I was so tired, I fell asleep. The taxi to the hotel was a short ride with a typically friendly taxi driver. This was my first stay at the Delta St. John's because I usually stay at the Sheridan but unless they give the aeroplan points I am entitled, I can't stay there. The Delta was very friendly and beautifully decorated with Christmas cheer throughout the hotel.
My room was located near the elevator. The view from the room is not as nice as the Sheridan but it was still nice. I had a water view. My room was a good size with a king bed. The flat screen TV, the small fridge and the free internet added to my delight!. The maid service was outstanding. She turned down my bed each evening and left 2 little chocolates on my sheets with a bottle of water.
The bathroom had a long vanity but the tub needed a replacement as there was a few small chips on the bottom of the tub. I always enjoy a free newspaper hanging on my door knob in the morning.
The restaurant did not give great fish and chips. Newfoundland is known for its cod fish and chips and there is no where is the world better, but sometimes a bad order happens and I got it! But no worries, I'm sure it will be better next time.
The bed was so comfortable and cozy. The clean smell of the sheets and the softness of the pillows and mattress and sheets was enough to help me fall fast asleep.
The friendliness of the staff was outstanding! They are the ones who can really make your stay great. Unfortunately I didn't get to swim in the pool, nor was I able to get any pictures, but next time. I did hear that this Delta hotel had the warmest pool temperature.
The flight over to the Rock was fabulous but on the way back, the flight attendant didn't go out of his way to provide me the extra help since I am a person with a disability. The trip into the Halifax airport with another airline staff was very positive and then off to home I went. Finally back after another weekly travel. One more business travel before our big cruise. So sit back and enjoy the pictures of the Delta St. John's.
You can see Signal Hill in the far background. This is a closeup of the harbour from the Delta St. John's.
