“Lovely, roomy apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

It was an awesome surprise to find such a great little apartment at the end of our long day's journey to Vancouver from the UK. Clean, spacious, well-equipped, great views, even the building work next door wasn't an inconvenience as it was fascinating to see the progress just in the couple of days we were there. Location is great, close for transport links, shopping, eating and sightseeing. Great start to our Canadian road trip.

What can I say, this place is great. It is in a great area of Vancouver within walking distance of many attractions and close to the Canada Line.
As far as the hotel, we stayed on the 22nd floor overlooking English Bay, great views of the sunsets and the water.
Our room was very good size, adequate kitchen, dining room, living room, separate bedroom and a decent size bedroom. It had great storage space, not sure if it was a pantry or walk in closet off the entry way but it was huge.
Our room was spotless and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we would stay here again no questions asked.

Room Tip: A higher floor overlooking English Bay.

Centrally located, with access to all downtown shopping and a grocery store across the street. Stanley Park about 24 minute walk away. Essentially a one bedroom apartment, well appointed, comfortable, including a small work area. A fantastic value for downtown Vancouver. Parking available, albeit with access through a lane way in the back of the hotel that is a little less than convenient.

Very good location, excellent suite and very clean. Helpful staff. Would definitely come back and stay. Within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping - Robson Street one block away. Close walk to Stanley Park. Good views of the city.

Very spacious suites at reasonably rates, great location for central Vancouver. All rooms come with well kitted out kitchen. Friendly and efficient staff. Hotel has a small fitness centre on third floor.

Room Tip: Go for a room on Alberni St to avoid building works next door.

Family of four, we stayed in a two bedroom suite for four nights. The suite was perfect for us, with two bathrooms, a small kitchen and a generous seating area. The location is ideal for seeing the sights - Robson Street is one block away, Canada Place is less then 10 mins walk, Stanley Park is 10-15 mins walk. Urban Fare across the street is very convenient, with a lovely range of pricey but delicious food options. Absolutely no noise from the construction site nearby.

We stayed here for work for 3 nights and had a good stay. Lots of space, bed was reasonably comfortable, living room furniture felt a little like an office waiting room but overall pretty clean. The location was fantastic, appreciated the grocery store directly across and lots of great restaurants and shopping close by. We relied on walking, cabbing and public transit to get around, so everything worked out great for us. Definitely recomment!
