In Feb 2010, our company Kruger Products stayed at the Algoma's Water Tower Inn & Suites with our customers during the Scotties Tournament of Hearts event and were very impressed with the staff and facilities. Given our positive experience, we would highly recommend the Water Tower Inn to other companies or groups looking to host an event in Sault Ste. Marie.- Nancy Marcus
