The Pacific Rim is a smart modern hotel in a great location. The room, overlooking the bay, was beautiful and the bathroom one of the best we’d ever seen. The bar was great for a drink in the evening and seemed to attract local custom, which is good. A previous reviewer mentioned a certain coolness at the front desk and I agree with that – efficient but not overly welcoming. The doormen tended to act more like bouncers and rather than having our cases taken from us on arrival, the door was held open with a suspicious look – maybe he thought we were too old! Then we were asked at Check In if we needed any help getting the cases to the room – naturally, we said No, because it saves the embarrassing fumbling with unfamiliar money when you’ve no change to speak of anyway. But, in a top class hotel, I expect the luggage to be delivered to the room without comment – maybe this is all part of it being modern, and most people wouldn’t even notice. The free two hours use of the bikes is great and that’s plenty of time to cycle round the nearby Stanley Park. Overall a hotel I’d recommend, and very close to being truly 5 star.
