This hotel priced at a reasonable rate and in a great area in the downtown area. Caught the Vancouver Trolley in front of the hotel and was able to ride all day (Hop-on-off) for sight seeing. Arrived early (10:00 AM) but was able to get a room with a great view. Room was modern, clean and staff was more than helpful. Food and service at the resturant was good and there are lots of other places to eat in the immediate area.

Room Tip: Best views are the higher floors.

We were in vancouver for a wedding and shopping,we stayed in a 2 queen bed room on the 25th floor, the room had a balcony and good views of the city and some ocean views, the bathroom was a typical hotel bathroom, firm mattresses and soft pillows. the decor (striped carpets!) was a little odd but not too off putting.

The staff were excellent and made extra effort to ensure our comfort and enjoyment in the hotel
The hotel is not far (only a few blocks... About 5) from skytrain and close to trendy shopping and the heart of downtown vancouver

Parking was extra 16$ and plentiful, but the ceilings were extremely low and the spaces were awkward often having narrow two way areas with blind corners that made us really anxious,i would not reccomend the parking toany one with 4 wheel drive we were driving a regular truck andbarely made the height requirements

over all I would stay here again without a vehicle

Room Tip: the higher floors offer great city views

We arrived after an overnight flight from Honolulu to this downtown Vancouver hotel.
It was recommended by our travel agent, and she gave it high marks. They allowed us to check in on our arrival at the hotel (due to availability of our room) and upgraded us to a suite. The hotel has beautiful rooms (all corners with views of the city scape and the water surrounding VanC)
Our friends meeting us there were given a room close to ours and they were very happy with their accomodations also. The trip frrom the hotel to the port for our Alaska trip was an easy ride via cab, which the front desk ordered for us.
The service and the stay were 5 stars all the way.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms here, but a higher floor gives better views of the water. All rooms and sui...

This is a very nice hotel. Tha staff was very friendly. The room was great. The location is ideal. They charged a bit too much for parking, but I guess this is expected, being in the center of Vancouver.

Excellent hotel with gorgeous views from every room. They're all corner rooms! Wonderful service, comfortable king-size beds, updated baths, modern restaurant, convenient to shopping, dining and all city sites -- and all at a reasonable price. Centrally located right in the heart of Robson Street, it's a short walk to Canada Place and the Vancouver Art Gallery and -- just a little farther -- English Bay, Stanley Park and Granville Island. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Vancouver!

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Great location on Robson street in the middle of lots of shopping. Within easy walking distance to the water. We walked down to the water, and then rented bikes to ride around Stanely Park, which was really fun. We were also able to walk to Gastwon for dinner (a little longer, maybe 20 mins walk).

We arrived early, and were able to check in right away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice, and large. Price was reasonable compared to other options we looked at.
