“Location and Interior Design distinguish this hotel. Marble floors, beautiful wood, fantastic lighting...”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The rooms are breathtaking. Plan to spend plenty of time in the bathtub soaking in comfort with lighting options, tasteful wood, marble floors, mirror t.v. all working together to provide outstanding ambiance. You will be enchanted with the lighting options and push button controls. The downside is that the ipad controls may not work, it is awkward to reach the curtain and shear controls on the walls and if you like a dark room you will have many places to have to cover. The staff are eager to accommodate any request they are able such as an early check-in or late check-out. However they do not always know the difference between friendly attentiveness and intrusiveness. The lobby lounge is one of the loveliest spots in Vancouver. The fireplace is inviting and the piano music is enjoyable. As everywhere, it is at its best when one has the good fortune to be amongst quiet guests. We took many photos to linger over memories and are already enjoying reminders of the many fine features of this fine property.

We took out a deluxe pool view room for my daughter's 10th birthday. The booking agent actually asked me whether we were coming here again for a special occasion and said there would be a little surprise for my daughter in the room upon arrival.
This was not the case. We also asked for an extra bathrobe upon check-in and had to re-visit the front desk 2.5 hours later for this item. Then the front office clerk said she would send up a slice of birthday cake (after being reminded) and we never saw it upon check out the following day. My son thought it was cool that he could order extra tooth brush / paste through the in-room iPad. It never arrived. We did not get the morning newspaper.
All in all only the Conceirge & the Oru worked out this time. We would think twice about staying here again. This is our 6th visit & this time the hotel does not even get 1 star for service standards.

This would have to be one of the best, if not the best hotel in Vancouver, Location, service, modern rooms, gorgeous bathrooms and impeccable style make for a truly excellent stay.
The bar is awesome with live music most nights. Oysters oh so good. A real gem is the Italian deli Giovane within the hotel..tremendous coffee and fresh, exquisite deli items.
Thoroughly recommended. Impeccable !

Room Tip: Rooms facing the harbour have extra appeal, but even city view rooms are fantastic.

We really liked this hotel: it was very modern and elegant (rooms, lobby, restaurants, etc), had great service and amenities, and the rooms were very neutrally decorated and full of great high-tech gadgets.

The staff are very friendly and attentive.

Breakfast is simply amazing.

If coming through YVR again, I will stay here again.

The moment you arrive you feel how fantastic this hotel is. The staff are very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are big, modern and comfortable. The sushi bar in the lobby make the best sushi I have ever had. Can't wait to return to the Pacific Rim.

Very nice hotel, have stayed here several times. Very modern decor. The bar/lounge is the focal point of this hotel. It's very hip and trendy, the place to be seen i suppose. The service throughout this hotel is excellent and they have new bmws to drive you to a restaurant dt or shopping etc for no charge. I always give a good tip though.

Room Tip: I always ask for a room away from the elevator in any hotel.
