Just stayed 3 nights at this downtown Vancouver hotel. Every member of the staff, from front desk to housekeeping, was genuinely friendly and very helpful. I waited for a friend in the lobby for half an hour and wanted to move in. Fireplace, sectional couch, comfy chairs, coffee brewing... and a chance to witness the staff and their honed customer service skills.
My room was on the 3rd floor. Now and then, the elevator takes its time, but it was kind of charming. Yes, it's an older building, but it's been updated extensively and felt modern and comfy. Everything was nice and clean. My king size bed and pillows were so comfortable - such a treat. As others have mentioned, the view was of a hostel - not pretty - but really didn't bother me. Despite the hotel being situated in the middle of downtown action, my room was wonderfully quiet.
I was a bit surprised when my $16/night parking turned into $21/night unexpectedly. On the other hand, when I returned to the hotel late on a Saturday night and there was no parking left, I phoned the front desk and they valeted the car for me. Phew! Very nice touch.
I didn't try the breakfast, but did eat at the attached pub and found the food delicious every time.
