Very nice updated property with friendly helpful staff and clean, spacious rooms. Free wi-fi that worked and a sparkling bathroom added to the appeal. For a downtown location the access is good, i.e. you can drive right in and park off the street outside the lobby while checking in - you don't have to find a parking spot first. Then simply drive up the ramp and you are there, a very quick walk to your room regardless of where the car is.
We didn't check out the pool or restaurant but they seemed clean and well attended.
If you need to visit UBC (15 minute drive but still about the closest hotel), or Vancouver General Hospital, this is THE property for you. Walking, it's maybe 15 minutes to Granville Island, and the Skytrain is a mere 5 minutes as well. Numerous restaurants, fast food outlets, supermarkets, boutiques, big box stores and liquor vendors are easily within walking distance, which you will probably want to do once you have settled in to your $17 parking space (which does include tax and is not unreasonable given the ease of use and location).
Noise of the ice machine and my personal pet peeve - not being able to correct the aspect ration of the flat screen TV - lead to slightly lower rating.
If I need to be in the neighborhood, would certainly stay there again.
