When first coming to the hotel we were concerned that it would be too far from where 'it' is at, but we found that the location was perfect: in a quiet neighborhood near the park but also a quick stroll from the downtown destinations.
We were lucky to stay in a suite the newly renovated Annex. It was as spacious as an apartment and in all new sparkling condition. While we didn't take full advantage of the kitchen, we were able to make good use of our restaurant leftovers at lunchtime and enjoy breakfast before we left our room for the morning. Thrifty Foods supermarket is just down the street in James Bay.
Sleeping arrangements were great for us and our two children - king bed in the bedroom and pull-out sofa in the livingroom. Being in the Annex it was extremely quiet at night.
The WiFi in the Annex was spotty and only some of our devices could function on the weak signal.
While the front desk staff were pleasant enough, we did not feel the warm hospitality that one often finds at other 'botique' hotels. Check-in and check-out were quick. And the free parking was really appreciated after staying in Seattle for several previous nights!
