I booked The Listel Hotel in Vancouver for a layover so that I can relax on Robson for a day. The hotel is in an excellent location situated right on Robson Street. Shops and restaurants galore.
Signage is a bit smaller so those unfamiliar with the hotel location may easily miss it, especially if wandering at night. Best of all, I used public transportation from the airport and did not have to incur the horrid high parking expense. I recommend this place for walking/public transit users with light luggage, not so much for those with vehicles if parking fee is an issue (around $36/day).
I got the most basic bedroom with bed, flat screen tv, small work desk, minifridge and coffee maker. The work desk had sufficient amount of plug-ins. Bathroom was clean but a bit outdated in decor. One of the more interesting touches was the inclusion of an anthology of Canadian short stories in the bedside table drawer. Some were pretty interesting
I noted that there wasn't much art in the basic room. A few pieces are enclosed in glass cases facing the elevators on each floor and there were some unique pieces out front in the lobby... red men in some sort of crouch/squat position. A visit to the Museum of Anthropology is still warranted as the pieces there will not do justice to the actual Museum from where the artwork is curated. I think there may be more artwork in the meeting rooms but I did not have a chance to look through them. One of the more interesting touches was the inclusion of an anthology of Canadian short stories in the bedside table drawer. Some were pretty interesting.
I did not have a chance to use the fitness centre but did order room service breakfast from Forage, their restaurant downstairs. Food is decent but the menu is limited. On the bright side, they are able to accommodate my gluten free needs.
Staff were friendly and obliging.
