We decided to make a night out in the city and decided to stay here for it. We do not like to drive and park in Vancouver especially when doing a lot of activities. The hotel is close to transit that can take you all the way to waterfront station. The hotel has a very soft bed and we were... More

I was very happy with my experience. I enjoyed being in a university setting again after many years, and the room was exceptionally clean with many amneties. The staff at the reception was very helpful.

Our son is attending SFU in the fall, so we stayed here to check out the school. We didn't have high expectations because we knew the hotel was in the same building as student residences. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very accommodating even when our flight arrived late and we called the person on-call to check-in (it was... More

Shadbolt house. Queen bed, full bath, very clean, quiet. 3 minute walk to the eating lounge, and less than 8 minutes to walk to the Convocation Mall. Possible to do it all undercover if you go the right direction ! Staff at the front desk were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. An all round good experience

Corner room with an amazing view of Mount Baker and the straits of Juan de Fuca. The staff were welcoming and efficient. Unfortunately, the students married quarters outside were being demolished during the day, so there was little daytime respite. However, the stove throwing contest from the second floor windows of the residence was exciting to watch! The entrance to... More
