No thrills, great, simple clean place I could call home for a week. All staff very nice, reasonable parking at $ 19 overnight and close proximity to everything. Housekeeping ladies also nice, especially the young European woman on 4th floor. Front desk European women also very good and the part I liked was, that they were nice to look at... More

Didn't spend a lot of time in the room, we were downtown to go dancing and celebrate a birthday. Front desk guy, on a Friday night and Saturday morning was awesome, got us a "big" room (all quite small), top floor, street side. Don't do it if you are a light sleeper, especially on the weekend, VERY noisy. Only downside... More

The hotel is everything that I needed. The price was great. The service was flawless. The only concern I had was with the quality of the bed.

Dear williamdY8341FJ, Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear your stay was flawless. Almost. The beds that we buy are brand mandated, which means, we don't have much say in it, unfortunately. They have been tested and approved by head office and I'm very sorry you did not like yours....

I'll start by saying I am not a fussy person and I in no way expect 5 star from a 3 star hotel. That said, I took a chance on a 2.5 star for that reason and the fact that I wanted to be close to the shopping I intended to do with my daughter. I am not exaggerating when... More

During the last few days of our holiday in Canada we stayed at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Vancouver and were very happy with our choice. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and two of the housekeeping staff also offered suggestions of places to visit and the best way to get there. Our room was not overly large, but... More
