I stayed here while in Vancouver on business and it was fine for me. If you know Howard Johnson you know basically what to expect. The staff didn't really handle my reservation very well. My boss had booked it and it was a bit of a process to get checked in, as they for some reason didn't seem to trust... More

I stayed here for a New Year's get together, and had excellent service from the front desk. I had rented tuxes for a formal ball that night, and the next day the receptionist offered to return the tuxes of all my friends and I. I have nothing but glowing words for this woman. It is now 4 months later and... More

We stayed here 3 nights in March, 2014. My main reason for choosing it was it had a laundry. We had been on Amtrak for 3 days and needed fresh clothes. They put us on the same floor as the laundry and on the back(quiet) side. I also liked the fact that the front desk is open 24 hours, since... More

I spent 2 nights in this hotel. It was a great price for downtown hotel and the service was also excellent. The staffs were helpful and knowledgable in giving directions and advices of good places to eat. The price did not include breakfast though. There was a bar next to the hotel, and there would be people coming in to... More

We stayed here for one night not too long ago. First of all, when we checked in, the front desk girl was not friendly or welcoming in any way. We didn't know where to park while checking in so we asked her and all we got in response was a condescending look and a "do you even have a reservation... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for staying with us, and for your frank review. Glad you enjoyed your stay, even though you experienced problems with parking. We have "very limited" parking and all of the websites that we sell our hotel on, will advise you of that. This is one thing that we are up front about, because we... More

This place was in a good location but the service was absolutely terrible. Charged us extra person costs for having people come in the room and get ready with us before going out. Would never go there again. Not worth the price at all.

Dear Sandra, I'm sorry to hear that you do not think that our guest service agents have a good customer service. As per your conversation upon check in, visitor hours are over at 11pm, anybody staying past 11pm, you will be charged extra person fee. Many of our guests come here to sleep, not everybody goes out to party. We... More

My wife and I needed a place for the night and this place was one of the cheapest we found. It's an average hotel. Average bed. Average WiFi. Average water pressure. Average service. We'd stay here again, but a couple of caveats... 1. Hotel parking is $20. There was probably street parking, but we were exhausted and didn't even think... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review on our small, boutique hotel. Your review touched on many things that make us a terrific choice for anyone visiting Downtown Vancouver. We do have some challenges being a 100 year old historical building I the centre of a large city. Our rooms can be considered smaller compared to... More

We were visiting Vancouver and at the last minute decided to stay an extra night to celebrate new year's. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly--we had to rent tuxedos to attend an event in Vancouver and were not available to drop off the rentals ourselves the next day (Jan 1). The desk manager, Lucia, offered to return them herself... More

Bad area but the staff was very nice. The reception clerks were very helpfull because we ask to change room because of the smell and on a quiet floor. They agreed with pleasure. The local area is not that bad bt still, would not recommand to have a walk at night.
