The hotel is located in the business district of Vancouver close to the sea-front, but a 10 minute walk uphill to the main shops. There are good bus services close by. We were booked in for 3 nights as part of a Titan Hitours group. We were checked in and in our room within 10 minutes and our cases arrived 5 minutes later.
The room was spacious with 2 large double beds, good quality furnishings, 42" digital TV, free WiFi and a good sized bathroom with excellent quality toiletries. Unfortunately there was only a single bedside cabinet between the beds with a central double light that shone on both beds which ever side was turned on. WE therefore used both beds so that we had access to the light and beside cabinet. (There should be a cabinet and individual on both sides of each bed so that they can be used as doubles). This turned out to be typical of Canadian hotel rooms on this tour. There was also only one suitcase stand - not ideal for 2 guests living out of 2 suitcases. There was the usual hair dryer, ironing board and tea/coffee supplies (limited milk and sugar).
The window overlooked office blocks at the back - no problem as we ere not there for the view!
We were served a complimentary continental breakfast in a meeting room so cannot comment on the normal breakfast. We though that the dinner options were typically pricey as expected in a 4* hotel so ate out. (Vancouver is NOT a cheap place to eat anyway).
