In a nutshell, the hotel is in Yaletown close to the waterfront, across the road from the SkyTrain station, and a number of restaurants. The staff were very nice but overall the hotel seemed like it might have been hip and trendy 5 years ago but not anymore. The room had a terrible odor everyday like an old peoples home and felt dated. The view was directly in to an apartment in the neighbouring building (my friend was looking into a dental surgery). The restaurant food and dinner options are terrible.
Location: In the heart of Yaletown close to lots of restaurants, the theater, waterfront, and Skytrain. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to other shopping areas such as Robson Street. Stanley Park is about a 20 to 25 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride.
Room: The rooms are of an average size and have a king size bed. It was decorated with different coloured furniture and there is a window with blinds through to the bathroom. An ipad is provided in the room. The flatscreen TV on the wall was very dated like the decorations. Bed and pillows were average. You can hear other doors slamming in the hallway.
Bathroom: Standard bathroom with a decent shower - water pressure was good. Strangely, the coffee maker makes it home in the bathroom. The shampoos and body wash provided are from L'Occitane and smell terrible.
Hotel Restaurant(s): Very limited options for dinner - all Italian. Breakfast was terrible and overpriced. I only ate there once and was very disappointed so on other mornings, I went to the coffee shop next door which has incredible coffee.
