3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed one night on the 2nd floor on the Davie Street side for the Celebration of Light. Reception said it would be noisy, but I only noticed noise a bit - nothing that kept me from falling asleep or waking me up. Room was a bit tight for space but every room is unless you get a suite. I'm... More

We had a 5th floor room on the Davie side of the hotel. Nice view of the bay, and great to be able to sit outside. Ample room and big TV. Parking fee covers parking until 5pm on day of check out. That was very convenient for loading the car and then taking a stroll without having to repark.

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.

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
