We arrived after a long journey from the UK to be greeted by a friendly receptionist who confirmed that as per our booking, we had been upgraded to a junior suite and our room was available immediately.
Upon entering the room (room 1201), we were amazed at the size of it. It included a large sitting area that then led to a separate bedroom and onto a sizeable bathroom.
10 minutes after settling in, there was a knock on the door with a gift from the hotel to celebrate our marriage which were some very tasty chocolate/brownie type treats. A lovely touch which was not expected but gratefully received. Being from the UK, we do a like a proper cup of tea and although there was no kettle in the room, a quick call to reception and one was bought up within minutes. We failed to ask at the same time whether they could provide tea bags and so asked the kind gentleman if he would mind bringing these to our room also. Again, he was back within minutes. We cannot fault the service!!
The only negative (if I had to give one) would be the cost of parking at $40 a day!! Perhaps this isn't expensive for central Vancouver but it seemed expensive to us.
To end on a positive, our stay from start to finish was lovely and we would not hesitate to recommend this centrally located hotel to anyone in the future.
