This is a very easy access to Stanley park and next to the english bay, Public transportation is very easy to reach as well as walking to restaurants. Tim horton's is across the street. The hotel has a restaurant, breakfast is reasonably prices and good. The room's are clean and tidy. The hotel is older but very clean.We stayed in a deluxe room and we had a balcony that you could walk out on and see the city and a peek through-view of the water. The staff are friendly. The only reason I would be cautious is that.. We drove our vehicle and it was broken into the first night we were there. There are camera's in the parking area, but not well lit. Our car was parked less than 200 feet from the front entrance. The maintenance gentleman was kind enough to help us by vacuuming the glass out of our car and taping plastic over the window. The police was notified. The THIEVES took our gps and a pair of sunglasses. Ridiculous.this was our first trip to the area. Which ended up costing us alot more than we bargained for. You are better off taking public transportation. the sad part is that the hotel staff did not seem alarmed at the amount of theives in this area. Would have been nice to have been warned at check-in and we would have not paid to park in the hotel only to have it broken into.
So overall- the trip was ok. Our experience could have been better. Spend extra money and stay somewhere that has security who car about their guest parking or at least warn those parking there that very risky".
