We stayed for four nights in late August 2012. We arrived by taxi from the Port - after taking the ferry from Victoria. The taxi ride was $95. Expensive.
We arrive at 11:00 AM and the room was ready. Clean, large and very nice. We had a deluxe King room on the second floor - facing the back. The bathroom was beautiful - very European - marble and the bathtub/shower was separate from the sink area. Nice feature.
The windows were big and provided fresh air - which we appreciated since there is no air conditioning. They did however place a fan in the room - but as it was very warm during the day, the room was at times a bit warm.
The bed was comfortable, the TV plasma, and the wood floors and antique touches made it seem very Victorian indeed.
The staff at the desk was helpful and kind. We rented bikes from the hotel to ride around Stanley Park and around the city one evening. This was a great help - no need to go to an outside vendor and return the bikes to a location away from our final destination.
The breakfast was excellent - fresh berries, yogurt, chocolate croissant and cold cereal was available each day. The coffee was a bit weak - but good.
All in all - the location is wonderful - one block from Gastown, two blocks from the water and lots of good restaurants near by.
I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again.
