i stayed here in November 2012 while i was attending a conference at the convention center. it was a 5- 10 minute walk to the center and is equally close to the cruise ship terminal. It is only minutes from Gastown & shopping at Pacific Center. i found the room to be modern and clean.
The room had a small sitting area and a good sized bathroom. I did not use any of the services in the hotel such as the bar, restaurant etc. I got a good price at hotels.com and would stay there again.
