This was our first trip to Vancouver and this was a great place to stay.
The location was perfect for seeing everything that Vancouver has to offer - beautiful views from our room of the harbour and Stanley Park (you can take up the sea wall walk to Stanley Park literally from the hotel doorstep) but also easy enough to get to Canada Place (a short, pleasant walk) and the excellent restaurants and bars of Gastown and Yaletown (less than $10 in a cab to each place).
The fact that the free shuttle bus to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park picks up and drops off at the hotel is a great bonus.
Inside, the hotel is clean and nicely decorated with good amenities, such as a shop, Starbucks outlet and spa. Our room was lovely and had a beautiful double aspect. The only slightly odd thing we found with the hotel was the fact that the wardrobe/closet was literally right next to the shower in our room.
Finally, I can't review the hotel without mentioning the excellent service from the staff. From front-of-house to the bar staff and waitress in the Seawall Bar & Grill, they were superb and exceeded our expectations.
An excellent stay - highly recommended.
