The photos make this hotel look super funky, mod, boutique and sexy. And for the most part, they ring true. It's got a great downtown location, close to excellent restaurants (the Flying Pig in Yaletown is just 5 minutes walk away!), close to shopping areas, and an easy drive to the airport if needs be. The property is lovely, and the restaurant Cibu and UVA wine bar are uber cool.
We had a suite, and it was VERY small. The price wasn't too bad for it, but the exposed fire spray piping on the ceiling was pretty in attractive, and the size of the room was definitely inconvenient. We asked for another room, and were able to upgrade but at a cost. I would recommend just straight up going for the larger size room when booking online, and the cost they charge you for the upgrade is more than what we would have paid if we'd just gone for it online.
However, it wasn't so much that it affected our stay, and the staff were very helpful and nice throughout.
The new room was lovely. A huge bed, a living area, lovely double bathroom, and a good size. Only problem is that it was directly over the Sports Bar connected to the hotel, and we heard their music pumping well past midnight. Lucky it was January 1 and wee were exhausted enough to get to sleep relatively easy anyway! ;)
The parking is easy, an extra $14 charge, which is annoying, but you have in and out privileges and it seems safe and is gated.
We definitely enjoyed our stay here and will stay again if there's deals on the larger suites, but will definitely avoid the smaller rooms unless its just one of us, or we don't care to enjoy the room for the night.
Thanks to Moda for a great night stay!
