Hotel is just 5 short blocks up Burrard from the cruise terminal. Beautiful facilities and great staff. Large workout room with cold towels, water, headphones and access to outdoor lap pool and very large hot tub/spa. Starbucks in lobby. Tim Hortons (coffee and GREAT donuts) and McDonalds just outside lobby. Hotel is next to Burrard metro station and a stop on the HOHO bus tour route (Big Bus and Trolley). Rooms are large and have desks with multiple charging ports. Strong wifi signal in room but didn't use it.
We couldn't check in at 7:30 when we got off the cruise ship (they tried but no rooms available), the Bellman Luther locked up our luggage in their storage room. Once we got back he retrieved the luggage, showed us how to use the RFID card key system, and advised us on hotel facilities. Great help!
Doors and the elevators are controlled by the card keys. No buttons in the elevators. Bring the key near a terminal in the elevator bank and it tells you which elevator to take and programs the elevator (you can also enter a floor manually). Exercise room/pool need the key, as does the ice machine room (and you need the key to get out of the ice room). Safe in rooms also use the key, and even the second room key will not open the safe.More
