“Our Favorite Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2006

We have stayed at this hotel many times and really enjoy it. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff is very helpful.

We always request a room with a balcony (there are only a few rooms that do not have one) so we can sit out in the morning with our Starbucks coffee (coffeemaker and coffee in the room) and either watch the tugboats along the Fraser River, or the activity at the market next door, while we are reading the morning paper.

It is also nice to take a walk along the waterway and enjoy the view.

There are some really great restaurants in the area. The Boathouse Restaurant at the Inn has very good food, but at times we have found the service not up to par. If it turns out to be a rainy day and we just want to veg out in the room, we can pick up take-out food at the market right next door.

As another reviewer mentioned, the skytrain is very close by, and convenient when we have taken in a concert downtown Vancouver, or go to Metrotown Mall - sure beats trying to find parking.

A very enjoyable weekend getaway.

We travel up to Vancouver a lot, and this was the first time we stayed in New Westminster. We had a standard room with 2 double beds, with no "special" view. Still, the room and view were great! We had a partial view of the water, with a great view of the public market and boardwalk.

The room was spacious, and nicely appointed. If you ask, they will empty out the minibar so you can use it as a mini fridge instead. Handy items like an iron and ironing board, hairdryer and coffeemaker (with free Starbucks!) were on hand, but there was no personal safe for your valuables.

Trains run nearby, so it did get a bit noisy. The busy pub next door also produced a few noisemakers, but the heavy curtains helped keep things fairly quiet. Plus, the beds and pillows were very comfy! Every room has its own balcony, so that was also quite nice.

This hotel has no pool, but it does have a nice little fitness center that seems well-kept, and includes a sauna and jacuzzi for all to use.
If you go out on the attached deck in between soaks (or sets) to check out the beautiful view, be sure to bring your room key or you could get locked out!

The service here was pretty good. Most of the staff was fabulous, however there were a couple of "no personality" robot-types in there as well. If you have kids, they will LOVE the free activity pack. Ours had a food coupon, coloring/activity stuff and a "canned" stuffed toy.
Pretty cool!

The hotel's Boathouse restaurant features steak and seafood, and is pretty nice. The prices are moderate, and the food is delicious! Highly recommend the seafood chef's salad (I think that's what they called it??). The restaurant also has a very nice kids' menu with a pretty good selection of food for about $5 CAN. There are also many nice places to grab a quick bite at the Public Market and within a few blocks either way.

The public market itself wasn't really hopping in October. Pretty small, but great for picking up some fresh fruit or an espresso. There is also a liquor store right next door, along with a large pub and a sushi restaurant that looked pretty empty the whole weekend.

The Skytrain was very close by and convenient, and well worth the fare and time spent. MUCH better than driving, and my child loved the experience. Metrotown is a short hop away, with shopping, entertainment and a Silver City movie theater (these are the BEST!).

We went in the fall, so it was a bit rainy. Still beautiful, though. We will definitely try to get out there again next summer so we can enjoy the many free sprinker parks, and hang out more along the Quay (pronounced "key").

Guest parking at the hotel is $4.50/day, and is in a secure, patrolled underground garage.
