We had a wedding recently in Vancouver BC. My Mother stayed at the Robsonstrasse on Robson street. This hotel was absolutely unfriendly in manner to guests. For example, there were 3 men in Tuxedos waiting in the lobby while I went to get my mother. The three well dressed and very respectable men were told to wait out side as they did not like so many people loitering in the lobby as they put it. I was then promptly told that they would kick my mother out if we had these guests up to the room as there is a strict no visitors plan in effect. What?? Totally ridiculous... I told them so and left. They then threatened my mother again when she later came back.
The second most unimpressive item is the telephone charges applied to the room. $1.50 per minute after 2 minutes it went to $2.00 per minute. This was not told to our party upon check in even after our inquiry as to how to use the room phone.
