We stayed at this hotel for three nights in November 2012 and really thought we got our money's worth. First impressions from walking in the door is that it looks more upscale than what we'd expect knowing the nightly rate. Security was good - we needed our room card to access the elevator. The room was clean and was plenty large for both of us. We picked this hotel based on reviews from this site and were quite happy with it. There are plenty of restaurants on the blocks near the hotel, and you can walk to Stanley Park in ten minutes. Also, there's a bike store across the street from the hotel so you can easily rent bikes. The breakfast at the hotel was also good. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable on the area. The room also had a recycling bin with separate container for organic waste - something I haven't seen in other hotels. Parking was $15 a day. Free WiFi.
