We stayed here as a stopover before and after other parts of our trip. This is a very comfortable hotel and with helpful staff. Tea and coffee in the rooms. Nicely situated for walks along the water and getting into Stanley Park. Would definately use them again.

We were attracted to this hotel because of its Park and Sail option. The hotel is near the piers and is in an older part of town, but don't let that deter you. We were pleased to find that it was an attractive, comfortable hotel with excellent, accommodating, and patient staff.

My husband and I stayed here after our Rocky Mountaineer trip and we really enjoyed the hotel. I personally did not care about the location as we come from a small town and I am not used to seeing homeless people. From our room we were able to see homeless people sleeping at the back of a store. It appears... More

The hotel is well located and close to restaurants and bus services. The staff at the reception desk were very helpful and friendly. The room and the bathroom were very clean and there was plenty of towels and complete toileteries.

We stayed here for 3 nights before cruising to Alaska. It's a very nice hotel and ideally located for getting to see the sights of the city. Check in was straightforward and we were delighted with our room. Vary spacious, impeccably clean and well equipped with a fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making things.

Walking distance to shopping, food and entertainment. About a $30. taxi ride from the airport or buy a package with it included. Has a Boutique Hotel feel and look to it.

The hotel is nice and clean, but it goes down from there. The street outside is packed with street people and crappy stores. I would pay more to stay in another area nearer gas town or the pier. The hotel was also very busy with only 2 elevators located in a cramped hall. If you could get on the elevator... More
