“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I stayed here while attending a conference at the Vancouver convention center, and it was perfect for my needs. I stayed in the smallest room available (Junior room? I forget what they call it...) for 6 nights and had no problems with the size of the room at all. There is a nice closet perfect for storing clothes and suitcases to keep the smaller space tidy. I could see it being a bit small for two people for a long stay (it's certainly smaller than what I would consider a "standard" American hotel room size), but I also think it could work for two people if you know what you're getting going in.

The room was in great condition, the TV was a very large flat screen, and the free wifi really can't be beat, as it worked perfectly with good speed. Everyone from the hotel staff was pleasant and professional, including the cleaning staff. The bed and the pillows were very comfortable.

My room was on the third floor, facing the street, and though I can be a light sleeper I had no problems with noise.

It was easy to reach the hotel from the airport using the SkyTrain (Canada line to the Vancouver City Center station, no changes required, and from there a short walk.). Though my conference operated a shuttle service to the convention center, it was also not a difficult walk to the convention center...around 20-25 minutes at a leisurely pace.

For those curious, there was only a $100 incidental hold charge for my stay (I believe it is flat rate, rather than per day), which is really refreshing when some hotels charge up to $50 per day! One bummer though was that I wasn't actually able to charge anything from the hotel cafe to my room, as there was some sort of technical problem. Hardly a big deal, but it does make eating at the hotel less convenient.

Finally, my one and only complaint...the showers really need some sort of small shelf! While there is a lovely huge rain-like shower head, this also made it difficult to simply sit products on the floor without nearly drowning when you pick them up. :) I settled for balancing my products on the top of the shower door, which just worked with travel sized bottles. On top of the shower door, in the back corner of the shower, or perhaps in the front (wall) corner all seemed good spots to accommodate such a small shelf if it were added in the future.

Very good rooms, friendly staff, very good restaurant and fantastic coffee bar. Only downside is the rooms facing the backyard where a few noisy fans are located. The last nigth we got a room facing the street much better.

This is a really nice reasonably priced little hotel in a fantastic location in downtown Vancouver and is close (walking distance with suitcases) to the main train station so easily accessible from the airport. I didn't think that the rooms were small, although I was staying in a double room on my own. The hotel has adjoining restaurants and one day we did have a fantastic breakfast in the UVA wine bar, although it was a little on the expensive side.

The staff were very friendly and were very well informed on a range of things such as where to eat, good tours to go on and even which stores are the best to get walking trousers and snowboards from!

Room Tip: Ask for one facing outwards, rather than one which faces into the courtyard where the air con unit i...

We stayed here one night, before we left for a cruise. The location is great - it's a 20min ride on the Skytrain from the airport, and the train lets you off within a couple of blocks from the hotel. The hotel is walking distance from the gaslight district (with plenty of restaurant and shopping options), and a slightly longer walk to the cruise terminal.

The lady who checked us in was super friendly and even helped us with a map of the area and directions. The room was small (think NYC sizes), but clean. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroom appeared to be recently renovated. Coffee maker in the room was a plus.

Would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to the area.

Our room was small, but clean and for the price it was reasonable. The hotel is centrally located in a good area of town (close to many interests). The hotel has an inside restaurant and even though our breakfast was very expensive, it was made with good high quality ingredients and was so tasty and delicious.
