“A must see building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The architecture is worth taking in. The floors, elevators, ceiling are all outstanding. Take your camera. This is a heritage building not your modern glass highrise.

“Art Deco Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

If you're down town you've got to go into the foyer and spend a few minutes. This is the finest art deco building in Vancouver. There is nothing like this building in Vancouver....it's right beside BC Place so don't miss it.

“must see, recommend visiting with the Tour Guys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This was the highlight of our free tour of downtown with the Tour Guys (guides work for tips).

The building is gorgeous, especially on the inside. The level of detail is astounding. It's probably the best example of art deco architecture I've ever seen. Our guide had us take the elevator to the 2nd floor, to get a closer look at the plasterwork ceiling and also the inlaid wood in the elevator (created from all the 12 different types of hardwood in British Columbia).

The history is also fascinating, which is why I'd recommend the tour.
