This property was in a great location on the corner of Drake & Granville; close to Yale town, west end and Granville/ Robson District. Room (deluxe double) was clean but very stuffy. No windows to open even an inch and bathroom fan didn't ventilate well. Went to get ice and pop from a vending machine however due to construction within... More

Penthouse was bright and spacious. Nice semi private deck with nice view of city. Great value with dinner voucher, wine, breakfast voucher, parking and more thrown in. Jacuzzi tub in room in a bonus. Staff was great and very attentive to our needs. They went the extra mile and didn't treat you like you were inconveniencing them.

Stayed in this hotel Sept 2014, as it was close to my daughters apartment, large clean room with small kitchen, staff were friendly. White spot restaurant next door is very good for food, area maybe a bit off putting but we had no problems, even walking home quite late at night,

Construction was going on through floors 3-6 (I think) during our stay. The floors above have been renovated. As a frequent visitor to the hotel because of its value in the downtown core, I accepted the previously outdated decor. Being charged the same rate for the updated rooms was a very pleasant surprise! I don't think you get a better... More

This hotel was under renovation and thus constant noise during the daytime took place. Could not stay in the room at that time. Ventilation was also poor. Could not open windows to get fresh air. Stale odour to the room.

If you enjoy doing races in the city this hotel has all the basics you need. The kitchenette had everything I needed to prepare my breakfast and the filtered water for water bottles for my race was ideal. Yes your in the downtown areas to expect some noise. The staff were amazing, professional, and very knowledgeable.

It looked like a nice location, and was. However, it was a rough night. The place is/was underconstruction - so, lots of construction noise during the day. This is an old building and the walls between rooms are paper-thin. The doors had no sound insulation qualities and the gap under the doors was so large that it seemed like a... More

Although the hotel was under renovation, this was a great place to stay. We needed to be near St Pauls Hospital which was only a 6 minute walk. Although Granville Street is "sketchy", it was nice to be near Granville Island. The room was nicely renovated! The staff was friendly & helpful!
