We didn't want to rent a car, so the location of this hotel was perfect. We had a great beach nearby, we could walk to Stanley Park, Granville Island, and Canada Place. There were lots of places to eat and a Safeway nearby that was open until midnight. We had a great room on the top floor which had a... More

Could not ask for a better location. Just steps from English Bay Beach and a block from Stanley Park it offers unbeatable convenience at a reasonable price. The nice staff was a plus. Very satisfied with my stay.

started our month in Rockies here, booked thru NetFlights rather than BW website. So BW didn't ask for a review of our stay (and we got no BW points)...but this was a lovely place with helpful front desk and quiet enough, yet close to all you could need tourist wise (and Stanley Park). We'll be back here the next/second time... More

Very vintage hotel and service ( except for the maid service which was excellent)... high cost for little in return compared to other hotels in the area. It is best that you do your homework as the You Tube video is very deceiving and makes hotel look better then it really is

Just a short walk across the street and your at the beach. On hose rainy days the view from the lounge was amazing enough that we didn't even feel down about the rain. It's also and close to everything. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, the staff were helpful, and we liked the price.

Hello Thank You for the review. From the sounds of your review it appears you were able to take in the spectacular view of English Bay from the Bayside Lounge. We are glad a Vancouver rainy day still had some upside for you. I am pleased you found the hotel to suit all your needs as well and we look... More

Our room had barely any air conditioning. For $223 a night we were just offered a fan to remedy the situation. Window a/c unit positioned next to exhaust vents which brought in horrible smell. Staff responded poorly to room problems.

Hello I do apologize for any problems you had with your room. We have since moved the fans from our laundry room more towards the alley they must have shifted in the wind. I am also sorry our staff did not act in manner you would have expected. Our staff are very empowered to help the guests with their needs... More

This hotel is very well priced. It accepts dogs, for a small fee, which is great. Location is fantastic. You can walk over to the beach and to any number of restaurants. Rooms are very nice - clean, well laid out. Very good value.

Hotel is right in the middle of everything......walking, biking, beach, restaurants....on and on it goes! Attached restaurant and lounge were reasonably-priced and the food was great, as was the staff. The lounge was situated right on the corner of Denman and Davies, so we had a 180 view of English Bay. The rooms were nice and nicely updated considering the... More
