This was our first trip to Vancouver and as Marriott elite members we checked in for one night following a cruise. They booked us on a concierge floor although checking in on Friday morning we quickly realized the room closes in the morning and doesnt open until Sunday night. This was not a suprise. Marriott was rolling out their new benefits program which includes a choice of points or a certificate for a continental breakfast in the morning. Issue at the hotel (which I was told earlier in the season would be completed prior to our arrival) was the dining room was under renovation (basically more than half of the first floor. Lobby was very small and they created a dining room in a conference room on the third floor. They upcharged for the hot breakfast but it was reasonable ($5). Overall we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful city. Here were the pros/cons:
- Location- near the harbor, convention center, Canada place (where cruises come in) and walking distance from numerous areas including Gastown.
-We were given a corner room which had wrap around windows. Size was larger and view of harbor was incredible.
-Staff was friendly and accomodating
-Hotel was clean and updated. Beds were very comfortable.
-Construction on main floor and dining room closed
-Prices relatively high but consistent with other hotels in area
We would return to the Pinnacle if we were in Vancouver again.
