Interaction with guests
While I am always interested in finding about my guests' background and their interests in Hamilton, I respect their privacy and try to be as helpful as possible without intruding into their busy days. On most days, I am away from the location.
Other things to note
I have been blessed with really interesting guests. Most of my guests are medical students and doctors coming to Hamilton's famous hospitals. I have also enjoyed hosting visitors to Opera Hamilton, both singers and administrative and technical staff. Also family members visiting relatives in Hamilton and area.
The apartment is continuously undergoing upgrades. The latests one is the addition of skylight. New tiles in the front hall were installed just last year. Enjoy! You can never have such homey feel in a hotel.

By profession a college professor, in my spare time a devout home renovator. In Hamilton, on of the places to visit are the Royal Botanical Gardens, just a short drive from the apartment.
