“Good value, good location, friendly staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a good hotel for doing things downtown. The hotel is old and the rooms are tired looking...but for the price you can overlook a few things like that. The rooms are bright, the bed are comfortable and the higher rooms have great views of the city. You must go upstairs and enjoy a beverage in the bar....it rotates....80 minutes to do a full rotation and the view is stunning in every direction.....go in the evening and watch the sunset.

Room Tip: ask for a high level room to enjoy the views

Booked my 4 nights already in November 2012: booking.com offered a 4 night stay for 330 CAD dollars. Hotel was easy to reach from the airport by public transport. Check in went fine, and I was given a room on the 35th floor with a breath taking view. The evolving bar/restaurant on floor 42 is highly recommended for a drink for beautiful views over the city , especially when the sun sets. The location of the hotel is perfect: so many shops and restaurants around the hotel. The hotel is also very close to Stanley Park and the Coal Harbour. Room was more than ok , size was perfect and it was kept very clean. I am a fan of this hotel :-)

I liked this hotel. It is conveniently located. The shops and restaurants are nearby, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. There are tours directly in the lobby where the bus picks you up from. The rooms are not ultra modern, but are clean, and the view from the balcony is beautiful, especially at sunset when the sky turns red. Another plus is the masseuse which is right in the lobby, and the massages are excellent!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony, but I think they all have balconies.

I stayed here for 3 nights, its right on Robson street. Shopping area is right outside you're hotel down the street. A 10 min walk to Canada place, couple blocks from a Tim Horton. No breakfast. Okey size room. there is no lounge in the lobby, very tiny check in counter. Very friendly staff, each room has a balcony with the view of the City of Vancouver, and you also got the revolving cloud 9 restaurant at the top floor. Would recommend this hotel

I stayed here twice in a 3 week span. The location is excellent as it is close to Stanley Park and the ocean front walk. Shopping street starts just a few blocks away. The front desk staff are not rude, but very cold and quick to move you on. No pleasantries, no welcome, just here is you key card and elevators over there. Both times I wondered just how clean the room really was, as there were signs of a very quick make over. Hair in shower area, dust on table, and a slipper under the bed!

Room Tip: rooms on north/west/south have the views. higher floors are quieter as you are above the traffic

The hotel is definitely an older one, but everything was clean and in working condition. You can tell that even though the base infrastructure belongs to a by-gone era (narrow hallways, tiny rooms), money has been invested to keep things nice. The room itself was nicely furnished. Yes, the bed was a boxspring, but I had no problem falling asleep on it after a day of wandering. And the pillows and sheets were every bit as nice as more expensive hotels. I was unable to get the ancient heating/cooling system to push in much fresh air to the room, but I solved that problem by just leaving the door to the balcony open.

Stayed on a recent overnight business trip. Hotel is in a great spot on Robson Street - even managed to find a surprisingly delicious dinner (gotta love the short ribs) at a small Korean restaurant a half block away after 12:00 midnight! Hotel is very central to anything you might need in Vancouver, public transport is everywhere, so no car needed if you have central downtown or West end business. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Nice decor. Room was small but clean, quiet and functional. Balcony is very nice extra if you don't have fear of heights :):) Views of the city were terrific. I was there on an extremely cold Spring evening and the room was heated to the perfect temperature, kept me snuggly without overheating all night long. Awoke refreshed and ready for my day. The beds are on the harder side, so if you like a really plush pillow top mattress, this is not the case. I don't mind a firm bed though, so was fine. Overall, would definitely go back and would be happy to stay for more than one night. Good value.
