Booked by the tour organizers of our friends (we were travelling independently), we went along post-cruise (having stayed at the excellent Pinnacle Hotel, Harbourside pre-cruise). It was what a BW is expected to be; small-ish room on a corner above main street intersection; room well-soundproofed. Breakfast room was small but no wait for a table - inexpensive but not included... More

Although the location is pretty decent, the hotel room we had was exceptionally small and the hallways were so unbelievably noisy that is was frustrating. The noisy hallways were worse than the typical downtown Vancouver traffic noise. Lots of sirens and lots of yelling. I can't fault this hotel for it's convenience of location though. A tad pricey for what... More

The hotel was very good. Service was great. Ticked all the boxes with Fridge,Safe and Wi Fi. Only downside was near to where a large number of homeless people were. When you went to catch a bus or go to the 7-11 store there were several beggars in the location

This was my third time at this hotel bringing a group and I was a bit disappointed last time I was there. Seemed a bit run down. Well here I am again with a group using 25 rooms and I was pleasantly surprised with the changes of the hotel. The lobby is pretty much as I remembered it from a... More

Stayed 4 nights with my family. Rooms were small but clean. Elevators are very slow. Parking spots are very tight. Location is ok as it walkable to some of the touristy areas. However, it does become a bit sketchy at night. Free tickets to Granville were nice. Staff were ok, but not very accommodating and didn't put much effort to... More

we enjoyed our stay there from August 13-16th 2015, very clean, our room was a little small but then we didn't spend much time in the room. Would stay there again, we enjoyed the fact that we could walk anywhere from the hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful

The room was clean, modern, recently updated. The bed linens and lighting were perfect. The staff, particularly Kevin, couldn't have been more helpful. He spent lots of time describing attractions, bike rentals and recommended restaurants. The "penthouse" had nice views along with a ping pong table which is how we ended our evenings.

The hotel was crowded with tourists who were coming in and off of cruise ships. If you left the hotel and went to the right - you were on a street that was pretty sketchy with homeless, and fairly dirty. Turn to the left and you are on a better street, cleaner, and more business like. The rooms were pleasant,... More

The hotel was clean and very well maintained. The price was a little higher than we wanted to pay, but one of the best prices we found for a quality hotel in this area. The shuttle to downtown and the cruise port were excellent benefits. The restaurant was SOOO good. We went down on a whim for a late dinner... More

The room we were in was newly renovated. I particularly liked the non-carpeted floor and well-lighted bathroom. It also had a coffee maker, microwave and fridge. The attached White Spot Restaurant had a varied menu, good food and reasonable prices. The staff was helpful with sightseeing recommendations.
