The hotel itself is really quite nice- not too small/boutique-like (like the Opus Hotel), and not too overwhelmingly large, like the Pan Pacific. It has a very nice pool, and extremely clean facilities and rooms. (I have stayed in the Westin in Boston, Mandarin Oriental in San Francisco, Phoenician in Scottsdale). The suites are nice, with decent sized sitting areas, and bathrooms. The bedroom area is a bit small, but since your actual room is an adequate size, it's not a problem. Plus, the "heavenly bed" is fabulous!!
The staff, although not too helpful, were very kind, and eager to help. (They seemed to be unfamiliar with the local restaurants/directions). We found it more useful to direct our "Vancouver" questions to locals on the street!
The only major issue that we had was the construction in the lot directly adjacent to our room (facing north). It's not the fault of the hotel, but rather due to the rapid expansion of condo complexes throughout the city. It seems as if this particular construction project is neverending, as reviews as far back as last year, complain about the noise. I would highly recommend this hotel, for its cleanliness, amenities, and location. However, I would strongly recommend staying in a room facing Robson Street (or a Southern view) so as not to contend with construction noise.
