I am from Vancouver Island and anytime I am going to Vancouver I stay at the holiday inn on Howe st. It is easy to get to and is close to everything.
But I will not be returning for my next trip. The past two times I have stayed have been awful. When I stayed in March out room was dirty (vomit in the bathroom) and we were on a floor where a sports team was staying and it was loud all night a s received many knocks at our door from our neighbors. Later in re evening when we arrived back at the hotel from our event we went to the vending Machine and were greeted rudely by the night staff and told to get back to our room immediately. We left out stay with a bad taste in our mouth from that but we had already booked our next stay with them and decided to give them one last chance.
This stay was for a concert. We arrived at the hotel/ checked in and were getting ready when a housekeeping staff walks into our room. We were a bit surprised but we didn't complain. As we were about to leave for our concert A STRANGE MAN walks into our room. He didn't speak English well he shows us his keys and they had out room number on it(they ha checked him into our room one night early...we still don't believe how this happens). He was shouting that it was his room. As one girl calls the front desk the man is still in our room and wouldn't leave. The front desk simply said sorry mean while we were left to get the man out of our room. No one came to the room to help us.
We were told to just pick up new keys when we returned. We had to demand to have our keys before leaving for our night out.
If this all wasn't enough to never return, the next morning around around 9am another housekeeping staff walks into our room as my friend is getting out of the shower. (Do they not knock??)
I will not return to this hotel. It is expensive approx.$260.00 for a very basic out dated room for a single night. Dirty as I experienced in March. And as a young female going to the city I defiantly do not feel safe at this hotel after 3 people walked into my room.
