Back in January, work found us staying at The Holman Grand in Charlottetown, PEI. While I have frequently used the Holman as an event space, this was our first opportunity to stay on-site.
The Holman makes an impression from the moment you pull in. We arrived after dark to find the building illuminated in multi-coloured lights. The main lobby has a clean, modern feel, with sleek furniture, unique floral arrangements and multiple mini fish displays along the front desk.
After making our way to the 9th floor, we had our first peek at a unique hotel feature:
But the best part was yet to come. The pool area at the Holman has a gym, large pool and a hot tub that overlooks the area. There is also a waterfall that flows from the hot tub area into the pool, creating a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere. The hotel was so great, we ended up extending our stay by an extra night.
We also love that the Holman Grand uses Geothermal heating, and a slew of other eco-friendly practices. Learn more about the many eco-friendly initiatives in the video below:
We didn’t get to try the food from the on-site Redwater Rustic Grill, but we plan to return.
Event and wedding planners, take note! They have a dedicated floor for events with rooms that are very adaptable. They also have some special rooms on the top floors with wrap around balconies and stunning views, perfect for engagement parties and honeymoons.
