We chose this hotel because of where it is and also for the price. We had a twin room with queen size beds. The room had a nice brick wall which gave it a bit of character. The room is pretty basic. TV, tea and coffee making facilities (kettle found in wardrobe), ironing board (the usual). Bathroom let it down a bit as was old and dated, the fan was quite noisy, the light gave off an awful lot of heat, and the bottom of the door was cracking from constant exposure to the humidity. The bathroom was also quite small so if you are a large person you may struggle - however much larger than bathrooms in cities like Paris.
All in all you get what you pay for. The beds are comfy, and we slept well. There is currently construction work going on outside the back of the hotel, which started at 8am but this did not bother us, and if you are going to make the most of Vancouver or are on business you'll be up by then anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful and ordered taxis for us when needed. They offer tea in the rooms, but only powdered creamer, when we asked for milk in the restaurant they were happy to provide it free of charge (even though the concierge said they might charge). The hotel lobby and waiting room looks modern, but as other reviews have said, the hallways look a bit tatty and could do with a bit of a reno.
We didn't eat in the restaurant for breakfast or dinner so cant comment on that, there are some nice places nearby for breakfast so we chose those as they are slightly better. You walk from the Hotel to Granville island although it is quite a walk and not very clear for the route there, so it is worth looking in to getting the Aquabus. You can also get down to false creek from the hotel and walk along it to Stanley Park which is lovely in nice weather.
If you aren't bothered about fancy hotels, or to be honest, just can't afford it, this hotel offers a comfortable base for you to explore Vancouver. Close to nice restaurants (check out my other reviews) and Granville Island.
