A great location in the centre of Vancouver.
This chic hotel immediately catches the eye on entry, with it's large modern glass fire place and live music in the early evening, creating a lively ambience.
Check-in was friendly and one knew just by the corridors leading to the rooms, that the stay was going to be comfortable.
On entry, the room was fresh and stylish, with all amenities such as: full minibar, Nespresso coffee making facilities, safe, modern TV including a further TV with remote control in the bathroom mirror and thoughtful touches like an umbrella.
The sound system was great, with a cable pack to connect just about any device you may have. An IPad was available in addition, which further functioned as a remote control for opening the electric curtains and drapes, adjusting the heating and mood lighting etc.
The ability to switch to low level lighting changed the dynamics of the room and made for a great movie night.
For the none techie guests, all the above could be controlled by buttons on the wall.
Having specifically chose a poolside room, the balcony led directly onto the pool deck with its outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, both heated to allow swimming in the Canadian rain !
The bathroom was spacious with separate tub and walk in shower, bathrobes, plenty of fluffy towels and toiletries.
Only slight negative was wardrobe space, being a tad small.
In summary, not cheap, but worth every penny (cent). Would I return? Yes, in a heart beat.
