From the outside, it looks like it's been transplanted from '50s Vegas, and the inside seems to continue that theme. The lobby is tiny and ever-so dark... a lack of natural light is compounded by the heavy use of dark woods and wall coverings from...More

A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.

if you are making a reservation online or via phone they almost always ask for a credit card #. They do not charge the card until you check in , and you can certainly pay with cash in person. They just take the number to hold your reservation as they do have a cancelation policy like most major hotels do.
