Able to checkin before arrival on line, having received an email from them, so was able to collect our keys immediately on arrival. We arrived by train at Pacific Central Station then caught the skytrain to Waterfont Station from there it was an easy 10 min walk, even with 2 suitcases.
Its located about 200 metres from Canada Place, the cruise terminal we were to use the following day.
We were completely taken aback on entering the hotel, because as you enter the building, its vast and really posh. Ground floor was a large area for a bar and a huge land mass for the reception.
Our room was on the 19th floor which when we entered our room, we were gobsmacked, it was huge, furnished really well with push button electrics for lights, curtains, nets etc. Everything ultra modern, LCD TV & coffee maker.
Bathroom was huge as well with blinds over the full height windows, enormously deep jacuzzi bath, shower etc. even a TV with remote in the bathroom. Push button electrics for lighting and the blinds which provided superb views 'to die for' over the harbour and the mountains beyond.
Drinks in bar very expensive, min of $18 for a glass of wine. We went to a nearby reataurant for dinner and a cafe for breakfast, so cannot comment on food.
Staff were excellant.....just could find nothing to be unhappy about, an absolutely lovely place. Yes, ok, not cheap, but once in a while, you have to treat yourselves!
