From the moment we contacted them regarding staying at their suites we were impressed. The management and staff were great This was our first trip to Vancouver coming via Amtrak from Seattle and the staff was helpful with guidance for transportation. Catching a cab was very simple from the station and a quick trip to the facility. The Times Square Suites is very secure and you need to have a key to call the elevator to the entry lobby or be "buzzed" in by the door monitor. The apartment was amazing, very clean and open. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, ect. Loved the gas fireplace. The sofa wasn't too comfortable but we were not sitting around alot anyway. The bedroom was adequate and the bed was comfortable, again, very clean. The bathroom was spotless and had plenty of towels. The washing machine/dryer area was stocked with supplies. The balcony was very small, not large enough to sit on but our apartment faced the back(VERY quiet) so we didn't really care. The heating and AC unit worked very well and we were comfortable. The fitness facility is not of site which was a downfall for us since we would have liked this. There is a gym a few short blocks away which you can use for free but was not really convenient. The Hotel location is absolutely perfect. We spent alot of time hiking, walking and jogging in Stanley Park and very much enjoyed walking the Sea Wall-it is nearly right out your front door. The people are all out riding bikes, roller blading(rental is right next door). Everyone is active. The park is fabulous... gardens, lakes, pools, trails, playgrounds and the Aquarium is there as well- BEAUTIFUL. Thank goodness StarBucks is right downstairs too! Any kind of food/restaurant you could want is available. There is a full grocery right across the street and a Whole Foods Market a few blocks away. The post office and a bank are all one block away as well. Prices were reasonable and comparable to US. We felt very safe anywhere in this area. We took a "Tour by Locals"-Lois T. and went to the North Vancouver area-Even More Fabulous. Experiencing the outdoors was great since we like to hike. We had walked the city and been to Granville Island-great place to shop but do NOT take a car(horrible and packed-you will waste time). We walked the Sea Wall and caught a water taxi/small ferry over. Lots of fun and eats! Allow half a day only. Loved everything about this part of Vancouver. Plan to go back and spend more time on the North side BUT will stay at Times Square again for sure!! Thanks to all the staff there.
Any room would be great here, the higher rooms prob have a view but we walk to see things!

We have inspected the sofa in the suite and are replacing the mattress on the sofabed to allow for a more comfortable seat. We will test it and if that doesn't make it right, then we will be shopping for a new sofa!
Thank you again for sharing your experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
