  1. I’ll check out those Amtrak apps to keep updated. Thanks for the heads up!
  2. Thank you for your prompt replies. It sounds like I’ll be all set - especially since my trip is next year, so I won’t have to worry about the remodeling.
  3. Just wondering - would a Red Cap meet me in the waiting lounge in Penn Station to put me and my checked luggage on the train bound for Albany? i will be arriving at Penn Station on overnight train from Florida and will have a few hours wait time before catching the train for Albany-Rensselaer.
  4. Thank you to everyone for your prompt replies, explanations, and suggestions. I certainly appreciate them! I guess I’ll be hand washing (not fond of ship’s laundry) Never heard of Zote soap. Where do you find that?
  5. I was reading from a list of extras that the Jade includes and it mentioned a self service laundromat. Is this correct? 🤞
  6. Thanks to everyone for adding your personal experiences. Very much appreciated!
  7. Mrgame101, So Happy to hear that you had such a wonderful time at Hotel Canada. That really says a lot about the hotel that it was up to the same standards. I do have a few questions - when you get a chance! How did you communicate with them pre-cruise? What area or location would you recommend for room location? Did you have to make reservations for the breakfast ahead of time or can you just show up? What was the cost? How did you get to/from cruise port to hotel? Any additional tips/info would be greatly appreciated because I just made my reservations!!! Grazie!!
  8. Thank you, lisamic, for your added comments. I love the idea of nearby restaurants full of locals. That’s always a good sign! mrgame101 - Enjoy your vacation! Looking forward to hearing all about it when you return. Safe travels!!
  9. MrGame101 I hope you have a wonderful holiday! 6 Nights!! Lucky you!!! If you get a chance to check in again when you get back, I’d love to hear anything else you’d like to share about HotelCanada. Did you find it the same as your last visit 2 years ago? What was the weather like? Did you happen to notice if the HOHO bus stop was close to Termini station? Did you enjoy any restaurants within close walking distance? Thank you for your previous post. (Looking forward to your update when you return, if possible)
  10. Thanks for the info about the distance to sights. I understand the hotel is close to the train station - and that is a HOHO bus stop. I’m hoping to use this for a loop to briefly see the sights, then hop off at Colosseum and Forum and spend some time there. It sounds like the hotel is further away from all the sights, but I think we can make it work!
  11. No, I did not know that. Thanks for pointing that out. If any CCers would like to add any personal experiences or thoughts, I would look forward to your replies. Thanks, in advance!
  12. Yes! All good reviews 😀 I just wanted to hear from the CC members - I tend to trust them so much more!
  13. Just exactly what I was looking for!! Thank you so much!!!
  14. Has anyone had any experiences with Hotel Canada? It seems like a good hotel for the money and the location. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Thank you, JB! Complicated is correct! I don’t think the train plan is for us. You mentioned the pre-booked private car service. The London toolkit website is very helpful. I will start the researching and see what will work. Thank you, again for your information and ideas. Very much appreciated!
