We arrived on June 27 To a nice hotel that was having renovations going on to the buildings attached.When I was checking inn the fire alarm was going and the manager was arguing with electricians and a frustrated Fire fighter because the workers continue to set off the fire alarm. It is now 1:15 in the morning and the whole... More

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We did have some issues with the fire alarm system while the adjacent mall was undergoing demolition of some areas. For safety reasons, our fire systems are integrated, and their trades people worked diligently to trace and solve the issues that set off our hotel fire system with a false alarm on the long...

Stayed here while on a 4 day visit to Vancouver, mainly because I like shopping and it seems Metrotown is the best place to do all of that. Secondly is because of all the transport links. Having a sky train station next door was incredibly handy also. The hotel looks rather modern, almost hidden by the amount of construction work... More

This is a great location to stay in the Vancouver area. Because you are out of the downtown area, the rates are extremely reasonable and you are across the street from the Burnaby SkyTrain station. We spent 2 nights here after arriving from an Alaskan cruise. Bought day passes for the transportation system that includes SkyTrain (access to airport and... More

I always stay here when I travel to Burnaby on business. The location is great - right in the center of Metrotown and several restaurants. While I usually rent a car and enjoy the free parking, the Skytrain station is right across the street so you can take the train from the airport. Service is good, rooms are nice and... More

This hotel is in a great area! Quick access to the Mall and SkyTrain. Surprisingly, the noise from the SkyTrain is hardly noticeable from the guest rooms. The bathroom is large and the room layout is spacious. While the pool is a great aspect to this hotel; the newly renovated gym could do with some work. There are no free... More

I had high expectations for this hotel and was looking forward to my stay. Noise: neither of us had a good sleep on account of the sky train noise and the incessant clatter of the heater.

Thank you for your candid comments on your hotel stay. I am sorry that it was less than comfortable for you. We have rooms that face the mountains, which would avoid the skytrain noise if you prefer. While not everyone is bothered by this, some guests are more comfortable on the north side of the hotel. Our heating and cooling... More
