We stayed here prior to leaving on a short vacation as we had an early morning flight. The room was very good. I'm not a fan of the "open bathroom" concept, but I'm sure other people find this to be just fine. If traveling as a single or a couple, probably fine, but with kids it is a bit of a pain--being able to lock the doors into the bathroom would be a nice compromise.
My one caveat on the property is that we were unable to access wireless in our room. The signal was ok if you went further down the hallway, but then there was nowhere to sit down. I ended up in the lobby to download a couple of vacation books and to check into our flight because there was no wireless signal in our room. I spoke to the person at the front desk, and although she tried to be helpful, there was little that could be done. She offered to move us to another room, but our family was already settled in, and that would have been a lot of trouble. I will just say that, for $300 per night, I expect there to be excellent wifi service in the room, and that fell short for us.
We were able to take the Canada Line to the hotel and it was a pleasure to head downstairs to our flight in the morning.
