We stayed in a standard double room, which was a great price and we never had any problems when needing the use the shared bathroom, there is a sink in the bedroom too to alleviate any extra demands. The bed was wonderful and we slept brilliantly, despite being somewhat noisy outside our bedroom, and even our small bedroom was equipped with an iron and ironing board, kettle, ipod dock and TV, we were very impressed. Everything was very clean and well maintained, and the breakfast catered well enough for our tastes- coffee and tea available all day as well.
The location is fantastic too, you really can't beat it for what's involved, it's a 5 minute walk to Gastown with some great restaurants and gift shops, 15 minutes to the waterfront and main shopping area and only a 10 minute walk to the Rogers Arena- great to watch the Vancouver Canucks in action!
However, we were staying before Christmas and weren't told of the closing time of the hotel when we made our booking or checked in. All previous reviews said how hospitable the staff were in being able to store luggage for later departures. Whilst we totally understand that they wish to close early on Christmas Eve, we'd have appreciated being told when either booking or checking in, and perhaps in a more polite way than occurred on the day. Other than that we loved our stay!
