This hotel is a great place to stay if you want to feel like you are living in the heart of downtown Vancouver. There isn't much of a view as it's completely centrally located (between buildings), but it is modern, luxurious, and without room service or a restaurant onsite it forces you out into the city to experience it more like a real person and less like a tourist. There are dozens of restaurant options nearby, and a grocery store and liquor store just at the end of the block that are easily found and that both have a wide selection.
There's no need for a car - two blocks from the SkyTrain and just off of Robson Street it's easy to grab a taxi or hop a bus, and everything downtown is close enough to walk to in under 30 minutes - even Granville Island and the aquarium!
The staff were very friendly and non-invasive, adding to the feeling that this was MY place. I kept the 'Do Not Disturb' sign on almost the whole time and yet every time after returning from my adventures no matter how long I had been gone for, my room had been picked up and tidied, with appropriate lighting for whatever time of day it was. The fireplace in the room is flame and heat-less, and very enjoyable at nighttime with the screen-less windows open to waft the smell of rain in to combine with the cozy and modern living area.
I had a wonderful experience here - no surprises or let-downs at all except that my iPhone wasn't compatible with the iPod docking station so I couldn't play my own music - easily remedied by the fact that their satellite TV had over 40 music stations for me to choose from. I will absolutely be returning to stay in this hotel on future visits to Vancouver.
