I am reviewing this hotel again simply to state that for the several times we have stayed here that we continue to experience consistent quality and value. Check out the "Added Tip" comment too as it details a noise issue on the first floor.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the first floor as the screeching of the breakfast area chairs on the floor can be...

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your review of our hotel, I am very pleased to hear that we have gained a loyal guest. And thank you for your room tip, the Queen Ground floor rooms are booked as a separate room type so you can book a queen upper floor room and not have to worry about being placed on the ground floor. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit with us.

This hotel is a little way out of downtown but provided a relatively cheap but comfortable one night stay prior to joining an inside passage cruise. The room was well appointed and comfortable with quite a good restaurant next door. Across the road is a small shopping center which has a supermarket, chemist, etc. From memory, it was about a $40 taxi fare from the airport and around $20 to the cruise ship terminal. I would highly recommend it for a cost effective layover

Great value, great service. We have stayed here multiple times. Only issue is the WIFi is far from reliable - hopefully they will sort that out soon!!! I am told they are doing renos during this next year, so perhaps they will address it then.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your review of our hotel, I am very pleased to hear that you have enjoyed your multiple stays with us and we hope to see you again in the future. In response to the issues with the wireless internet, we are always looking to improve in this aspect, recently we added several access points to problem areas and also changed the password in an effort to prevent unauthorized usage. If you continue to have issues during future stays please contact the front desk and we can have out technical support look into the system immediately and have the room number on file so that we can add more access points to better serve our guests.

Thank you,

We knew nothing about Vancouver or where to stay. We searched for a decent place to spend 3 nights before our cruise. We searched Tripadvisor and found this place. We booked our reservations and prayed <LOL>. We were not disappointed by the choice either. It was a great value. The hotel staff were great and so very helpful. We rented a car and the staff helped us get around so easily. So much better than the directions that the car rental place gave us.

The staff was so friendly and helpful in every aspect of our stay. I'd stay there again when in Vancouver.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side would be quieter since the front of the hotel (south side) is on Kingsway wh...

A great location not too far from public transportation. Near some excellent restaurants, a wide variety of ethnic choices. Great pastries at breakfast. Oddly shaped rooms, nice view.

We experienced some issues as a water line was replaced and leakage caused a fire alarm in the night. The staff handled things extremely well, apologies by letter and a comped room appeared first thing in the morning.
