Blue Horizon may be a tad hard to spot at first but it's there, trust me! You'll probably see the sign for their Abode restaurant first (which I had a chance to dine at - it's pretty solid food with a cool lounge or outdoor street patio...also, note that the hotel does not have room service).
The staff really seemed to go out of their way to help out with doors, luggage, elevators, checking in on me to make sure I had everything I needed and I was still alive (yes "for the safety of our guests, we will perform a room check between 4-5pm daily").
I love the fact that the shampoo and soap were in these big refillable containers and that the little bottles were only available upon request. I wish more hotels did this! And they have recycling - often hard to find in a hotel!
The location was great, right on Robson amidst the restaurants and shops, and a short walk to the harbour.
Can I mention the music in the lobby and elevators was really fun? There were a lot of 90s songs I hadn't heard in a while that made me smile...
Anyway the room was big and spacious with an awesome view and a balcony you could actually go out on! So the only beef I had really was the bed and the pillows. The bed was too hard and the pillows were too big and puffy for me. Which, you may be thinking, how does this lose them one whole "dot" in the rating system? Because really, the hotel is there for me to sleep. Everything else is gravy. And unfortunately, I didn't sleep well. My boyfriend didn't have a problem, but he's not the one writing the review. So 4 dots it is. Enjoy!
