Spent 5 nights here in September 2009. At check in I was asked if I wanted to upgrade to a harbour view room for $30CAN a night. I declined and when we arrived at our room on the 27th floor, was I glad as we had a partial harbour view anyway which was perfectly acceptable!!
The room was a good size with all the amenities you would expect and 2 large beds which were very comfortable. Good sized bathroom with separate walk in shower - no climbing over bath sides here!! Plenty of room by the wash hand basin to put all your things and there was a really efficient hair drier. Controlling the room temperature was easy and it was efficient and there was also a small window you could open.
We had our breakfast in the hotel each day which we enjoyed. We also ate in their restaurant the first evening and this was very good.
The hotel was very close to the float plane terminal and the harbour and about 10 minutes walk on the flat to Canada Place. The hop on hop off Trolley buses stop outside the hotel. However, if you want to go further into the city for a bigger choice of restaurants it is all uphill so we used to get a taxi to a restaurant and then walk back downhill to the hotel after our meal.
This hotel is not cheap (in fact we found Canada not a cheap country to visit) but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
