When we pulled up to the Corporate Inn, we immediately thought "no way" and drove away in search of another room in the New Westminster area. After 3 unsuccessful hours, tired and hungry we decided to go back to the Corporate Inn for one night and keep looking the next day. WELL! When I opened the door to our room, I kicked myself for even driving away in the first place! The room was plenty spacious, bigger than any hotel room I've stayed in before. It was clean, with laminate flooring (not carpet), a nice big tub to soak in, 2 big comfy beds and most importantly a kitchenette which was the reason we booked this place to start with, as we were in town for a bodybuilding competition and food prep is the utmost important thing when competing in such shows.
The best way I could describe the Corporate Inn would be somewhere between a hotel and efficiency unit. And the location for the price was unbeatable... just minutes from everything we needed and from all of the best shopping and sights in the area.
The staff. Oh my God, what can I say about the staff!!! Friendliest, most helpful hotel staff I've ever encountered! No, they don't have 'uniforms', or a dress code of any kind, and they may look a little less than professional, but they were incredibly helpful and accommodating, and even offered to cook our food! Any request we had, they were there to fulfill at the drop of a hat. They were also genuinely interested in us and our sport and would suck us up into conversations that could easily lead to friendships. Better than any hoity toity upscale hotel staff I've ever encountered! No request was out of the way, where as other hotels can make you feel like asking for the simplest of items is a nuisance.
If you are looking for a place to rest, where you can 'live' for a couple of days, cook for yourself, and feel at home, then give the Corporate Inn a chance. I am so glad we couldn't find another place to stay and would book again in a heart beat. We moved into a "nicer" hotel in DT Vancouver for the second half of our trip and I actually missed the Corporate Inn; they had bigger beds, more pillows, far more space, bigger bath tub, and more storage for our items. If you are looking for luxury and amenities, then maybe this isn't the place for you.
