I'll do the fast part of the review... Location wise, it's great. Right as downtown as one could want, and certainly easy walking to many restaurants, as well as Stanley Park, English bay etc.
Service was mediocre at best, staff reticent to be of any help. Housekeeping was tidy enough, but the room needs some freshening up... long strands of carpet hanging out of the transition strip at the bathroom? I can only speak of course to my experience, and it was bad. I'm a business traveller and certainly there are some amenities I appreciate. Soon as I got to the room, it was back to the future... it's 2014 and there is a "Mr.Coffee" and a "Clock Radio" (huge thing with such emblazoned across the top of it..whirring and clunking away) in the room, and a TANNING lamp in the bathroom!... Lucky there was a flat screen TV tho, which kept me from thinking i had entered a parallel universe... as the decor is basically.. mirrors.. and more mirrors... and mirrors. The bed was like a plank on two sawhorses (and I can pretty much sleep anywhere) and the big treat was... if i opened the sliding door onto the balcony, everyone smoking out on THEIR balconies was kind enough to share their smoke break with me. Even with the slider closed, it seeped in. Too much seriously..40 floor hotel with 1 ice machine on the 22nd floor... wth ... I do long days of meetings, with a variety of clients and want a bit of rest when I have finally fought my way back through traffic to the hotel. This is the first place I have reviewed and not even given it an 'average' ... to recap, if you want to be downtown, the location can't be knocked, but the most important aspect for any traveller, business or pleasure... is a bit higher level of comfort than just the fact you are indoors and not under a tree. Again my experience, but it was sorely lacking.
