We had only three nights and were really happy with this accommodation and the helpfulness of the staff in making the most of our time there. Our twin room was roomier than usual and had some kitchen facilities but we mostly used the attached restaurant which was good value. The free shuttle was a bonus as taxis are expensive and... More

Excellent hotel and location. Beautiful city. Great transit system to travel within city if you can get good direction from hotel staff. Hotel staff also function as concierge. Canadian answers to your question only. So don't be shy to ask too many questions. Otherwise, you will not be fully oriented to free shuttle service to places you can go. Plan... More

I stayed at this hotel recently when, it being high season, I wasn't able to get a room at my usual place. Location is very central - a 5-10 minute walk from the Yaletown Skytrain Station. Walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants, English Bay and Stanley Park. The hotel is almost on top of the Granville Street bridge, but... More

Clean hotel and is worthy of a stay. Problems with elevators being completely taken over by the cleaning staff during the day, forever to get to your room. Shuttle is advertised on the web site as "will take you anywhere downtown" they have one van and he is completely devoted to people on cruises. They told me to be a... More

Dear Ted Z from Saint Augustine Beach, Florida, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your downtown Vancouver accommodation. I am very sorry to hear that your stay was unsatisfactory due to our shuttle service. During cruise ship season, the shuttle does get busier with multiple travellers and oversized luggage. However, they do not have priority for the shuttle service... More

clean rooms, asked for water view- there is none as too many high buildings, but didn't find that out until we got there. Street noise can be heard on the 8th floor. Restaurant food and service good, front desk staff very helpful.

We recently stayed at this BW and the level of service was wonderful. And to top it off...after we checked out of the hotel and realized that we had forgotten our biking helmets, Jamie at the front desk had them packaged and shipped to our home! And BW even paid the $20 freight. I would definitely stay in this hotel... More

Clean motel, not really down town a little ways from centre of the CBD. Very friendly staff on reception. Very clean rooms, good large TV and great beds. Small but clean bathroom. Ruins are a little small
