“Beautiful spot for a hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Really enjoyed the location of this hotel on the north side of the bay looking at Vancouver. Good lounge area downstairs. The hotel rooms were large and the showers were fine. I got a mountain view vs a water view, so not happy with that. Several good restaurants nearby.

Took the water taxi plus the train back to the airport. Very convenient and much faster and cheaper than a taxi.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view and take the train / water taxi vs the normal taxis.

It isn't very often that the room you receive is exactly like the ones in the brochure. There's always something, not this time. It was wonderful. We didn't have a waterfront view but watching the city glow was nice too. The lap pool was great, my daughter is a competitive swimmer so for her to find a pool at a hotel that she can truly practice in was perfect. The room was clean and maintained. We were traveling with our pets and when we arrived in our room they had a dog bed and water bowl, it really was a nice touch. There are many restaurants and shops around the area within walking distance.
It was easy to find, except the parking. We found some street parking while we checked in and the staff was able to direct us to the underground parking.
We chose this hotel because we were staying overnight and wanted somewhere close to the ferry, and it was perfect.

What a great hotel to stay at. The service was excellent! Spectacular views from the room and from the pool deck. Lots to do in the evening as it is close to the market and outdoor entertainment on the pier. The room was well appointed and beautiful. Could have been slightly cleaner though. Not the quietest room as we could hear people in the halls and rooms nearby. We could constantly hear the elevator. The underground parking is not secured and is very tight to park in. The only thing we didn't like is that you need to use the elevator to access everything - not the best thing for motion sickness.

Good service and pet friendly and a great view of Vancouver, with great festivities right out the door on the pier. A less busy location from downtown Vancouver but still good restaurants nearby, within walking distance.

My wife and myself spent a few days in Vancouver during a BC and Alberta vacation and had booked this hotel in advance, also based on the tripadvisor feedbacks. I can only confirm statements made already: the location, even so not in Central Vancouver but across in North Vancouver, is absolutely great and we loved it. The Seabus ferries to get across are within 5 min walking distance. on the way to there is also a little mall with an indoor market and Pier with restaurants and great options for different kinds of breakfast, fruit and else. And tables with a sea view across to downtown. On the weekend there was also lots going there with concerts and little markets and live music near the hotel. The hotel is also close to the attractions on the North Vancouver side, e.g. Grouse Mountain and Capilano Park. Btw, before one climbs "the Grind" at Grouse mountain I can only recommend to thoroughly check what one is getting himself into. Been there done that.
The rooms itself are not huge but sufficient, very nice and clean, as is the whole hotel. Staff was helpful and very friendly at any time and gave us advice to get around. Parking is available underground in the hotel but charged separately.
Only downside, but not of much bother: we had booked a room with mountain view, and this term really is misleading how we found. The mountain view faces the street side and gets the traffic noise (even so not really much disturbing) and the mountains can be seen a little only peeking out between the buildings across on the other side of the road. May be another or no term would avoid misunderstandings, we at least had another idea of mountain view.
However, in a nutshell: great stay, 4 instead of 5 points only due to the misleading mountain view term that had us disappointed.

Room Tip: Just be aware what you book when choosing the less expensive mountain view and make sure, that sea v...

This hotel is lovely and clean and the staff are so friendly. This was our first trip to Canada and the staff were very helpful. We enjoyed staying in North Vancouver away from the busy downtown Vancouver, but still just a short sea bus ride away. Transport was very easily accessible and reasonably priced. You can get the train and sea bus very easily to and from the airport for just $4. The hotel itself was great and very comfortable and clean. I was however a bit disappointed with the view as we stayed on the side with 'mountain views' which looked out onto the street and buildings opposite with the glimpse of a mountain in the distance. this would not stop me staying here again, I would just ask for a sea view in future. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view have a much better view than those facing the mountains.

We paid extra for a "mountain view" room. We were placed on the fourth floor, and only the tiniest tip of the mountains were visible above the condos and tree line. They should consider scaling back the premium for "view" rooms whose views are mostly obstructed. Also, the internet was out for the entire first day of our stay. We were told that we could park on either level of the hotel's garage and chose the ramp leading upward. When we needed to access our car after 10 p.m. we were told that we parked with the custodial staff and could not access our car until a maintenance staff member was available to unlock the gates and escort us to the car. Ugh. It was just a series of bad experiences. This was, by far, our least favorite hotel during our ten day trip to the northwest. This is just my personal opinion, but Vancouver is, in itself, a snooty city that is a bit full of itself, so take that into consideration when booking a room anywhere in the city. Sidenote, don't call the "SeaBus" a "ferry terminal" to the front desk staff when asking for directions. They will have no idea what you're talking about. Just an FYI.

Room Tip: If you are paying extra for a mountain or harbor view, make sure your room is on the upper floors. O...
