“Bad area - don't stay there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2006

While Vancouver is absolutely wonderful, this hotel is located in a bad area of downtown. I was on the top floor (15th) and it was extremely noisy outside all night. Many other clients complained about the noise level too. Nice and clean hotel though but I will not go back there.

Was a little wary of this hotel because of some of the reviews I had read. But was very surprised how nice it actually was. Had a king size room on the 14th floor, was very clean and comfortable. Noise was not a problem never heard anybody in the next room. Wasn't expecting a bellman but we had one take our bags up, that was nice for a change. Neighborhood is not great but we enjoyed walking around the night we were there. Lots of interesting people to see. We would definately stay there again.

I'd give this hotel a lower rating but the price was great for downtown Vancouver.

We stayed in the Courtyard section of the hotel. The room was clean and nice except for a bathroom door that wouldn't close.

This would be a fairly nice hotel if it wasn't in a bad area of town. To access the Courtyard one had to cross an alley that was frequented by prostitutes and homeless people. It's okay by day but I'd be concerned at night and was a little worried when my wife was by herself.

Personally next time, I'd spend a little more to be in a nicer area of town. The strip clubs, peep shows, prostitutes, etc wasn't worth the extra money saved.

I stayed there for six days in early December 2005. The hotel is in a not so nice part of town, but it is an excellent deal and one can easily walk everywhere. The suites are nice spacious and clean and the service is very good. Room service is fast, food is Ok and very reasonably priced.
The only thing I did not like - the windows are single glazed - very low, can easily open FULLY and have NO screens so I would definitely not recommend it to anyone with small children. It is very dangerous especially on higher floors. I am surprised the management did not do something about this.

But apart from that, it is a good comfortable hotel for someone who needs a base to explore Vancouver.

Yeah it might not be directly on Robson st., but none the less its downtown's best deal! Unless your willing to spend 200+, this hotel cant be beat! Especially its two bed w/ sofa-bed rooms (very, very spacious with balcony overlooking Granville). Stayed here over five times and have never had any problems with the hotel or its surroundings!

This hotel is in a seedy part of town. It is unsafe to walk outside after dusk. You run into panhandlers the minute you step outside. Rooms are neat and well maintained but VERY NOISY. You can hear loud music and yelling at 3 in the morning. Front desk staff are rude. They gave incorrect info on both occasions I asked them. Place to avoid !

I agree with the previous reviews. The hotel is great. We stayed in the high rise. The room was absolutely enormous. It was a suite with a seperate bedroom (two queens) and living room (couch and chair). It had all the amenities including a microwave and refrigerator. Although I didn't use it, it also has free high speed internet. The room is very clean. The shower is strong, soothing, and very clean. For the price ($102), it was a great deal.

However, if you are freaked out by porn, punks, and pizza shops, then this isn't the hotel for you. The stretch of Granville Street that the hotel is located on is very alternative. Lots of porn shops, peep shows, piercing and tattoo shops, goth-looking nightclubs. We could hear people yelling outside our window when the bars closed. One of the highlights is the hair salon without a front window or door with bikini clad hair stylists cutting hair. Of course, the stylists are tattooed and pierced in various places. Fun to see but you wouldn't want to take them home to momma. This stretch also has more pizza places per square mile than anyplace on the planet. I recommend going directly across to the street from the hotel to the corner store advertising 93 cent pizza slices. They are huge and yummy.

My sister and I walked this street and didn't encounter any problems. Of course, it's a big city with lots of funky looking people, 99.9% of which just want to be left alone. It also has very normal looking people. Looming over the hotel, there are many very expensive high rise condomineums. Don't be afraid to book this hotel but remember to pack your sense of adventure.
