The accomodation was excellent with all the necessary amenities anyone would need. Access to the Universities dining hall was great and it offered a great selection at a reasonable price. All the staff were very helpful. Overall it... More

We recently spent some time in Coquitlam visiting family, and stayed at the Simon Hotel. I find this hotel to be very quiet and restful, with nice mountain views. There is a strong feeling of being safe in this hotel, because of the door security systems, controlling access to the hotel level. Since the hotel level is on the 8th... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night and everything was comfortable and convenient. The room was very clean and tidy and, as the hotel is on the last floor, we enjoyed the view over the SFU campus and up to the mountains of lower BC. The forest on Burnaby mountain, surrounding the campus, is just wonderful. Also, SFU Residence... More

Great place to stay. Close to so much and a gorgeous view from every window. I had a corner room with 2 walls of glass. Bed was very comfortable. Housecleaning was excellent. It is so nice to be able to stay on campus to visit my children.

A very nice modern luxury hotel room. Parking was included in the price! When booking, if you advise your visiting a student and provide their student number, you get a discount which makes for great value for money. Fabulous city view in the common hallway on a high floor! It was so convenient for visiting our family student. I would... More

Dining Hall was great. From steak to fish. The quality way, way above price. I used a dorm room, very clean, and new in a concrete building 8th floor. Lounge with view of Fraser River, see for miles. Elevators good, laundry on ground. Everything top notch. Also townhouses and such within the complex. Parking good, and cheap. University right there,... More

We've stayed here three times and enjoyed each stay. Book far in advance because it fills up quickly. Necessities are available close by, but restaurants are hit and miss. Rooms give you a "residence" feel, but are very functional. The view is great!
