I made our reservations based on Trip Advisor reviews, and I'm glad that I did! The hotel is centrally located in the downtown area of the city -- a ten minute walk from Yaletown and Gastown and close to shopping on Robson St. From the moment I made the reservation until our departure, the service was excellent. I requested a quiet room and we were given a room on the top floor of the hotel facing the pool, which was perfect. We reserved a suite in order to have extra room and a kitchen. While the bedroom was a bit small, the living room and kitchen area was very comfortable and it was nice having free wireless service. In addition, the kitchen was the best hotel kitchen I have ever seen -- fully equiped with modern appliances and accessories (they even had a toaster, blender, and electric tea kettle) and it had a gas stove!! There is a supermarket right around the corner from the hotel which is very convenient.
Every member of the staff who we interacted with was friendly, helpful, and gracious. When I needed something from Housekeeping, they came right away. The Concierge gave us a number of restaurant recommendations. Kimberly helped us plan a wonderful outing to Granville Island and happily answered all of my questions, offering lots of great advice. We had breakfast one morning at the hotel and really enjoyed the variety, service, and ambience. I was impressed that they served organic eggs!
I recommend the Kingston Taphouse across the street from the hotel as well as Nuba, a Lebanese restaurant in Gastown. We also took the Aquabus from Davie St. to Granville Island, which really added to the experience.
Overall, L'Hermitage is a great hotel to explore the city, and I plan to stay there again next time I visit Vancouver.
