We didn't realise that this hotel is in the heart of Vancouver's LGBTQ quarter ... and it's all the more friendly for it! Ask for a mountain view room - they're quieter than the road-facing rooms. There was a nasty smell in our room on the first night and the hotel was full, so we couldn't change until the second... More

We stay here often and are always pleased with the staff and the room. Comfortable beds, well appointed bathroom, free Wifi and right down at English Bay. The rooms are bright with a large window, and spacious. The drain in the sink and bathtub were very slow draining. Just outside the hotel is Denman and Davie streets, chalk full of... More

Perfect location in Vancouver: close to English Bay, beach, restaurants & shops. In half an hour you can walk to downtown. Busstop nearby. In front of the hotel is a bike rental. Rooms are comfortable and clean, with excellent beds. Parking (payed) is behind the hotel. We had a room at the backside of the hotel; our sleep was disturbed... More

A spacious and comfortable room, with clean and good facilities. the decor is a little tired, but this is more than compensated for by the pleasant and helpful staff. The restaurant/bar serves pretty standard fare and is quite adequate. breakfast was very good. Situated so close to the beach makes this hotel a good place to stop over in Vancouver... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a great view of English Bay(Davie street side). The young man that greeeted us made us feel right at home and made... More

First of all the staff were very nice and responsive. Always friendly and willing to help. As for the hotel. Carpet and furnishing very dated. The water temperature was impossible to regulate. If your neighbor used their water you'd either get scalded or frozen in the shower. Air conditioner struggled to keep the room cool. The hotel seriously needs to... More

This hotel provided with a nice suite at a reasonable price. Their front desk service was prompt and attentive. More importantly they were friendly, going out of their way to help us in any way they could. The view of this section of Vancouver was interesting, and Vancouver is like no other city I've previously seen in North America. It... More

This is our 3rd stay at this property. The decision to stay here was due to the awesome location for attending the Fireworks and Pride Parade. Being such a close walk to the beach is really nice. Loads of restaurants in the area. Some shops too, but more of a foodie area than a shoppers paradise I'd say. It had... More

Not in the best part of the city but price wise it is a bargain and the staff go out of there way to be helpful . Our little suite was clean and we enjoyed having all the extra room. Included is a microwave, refrigerator and coffee. I highly recommend the restaurant for breakfast, I wish I had taken a... More
