“Great location. Great View. Old and Uncomfortable.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We loved staying right downtown in Vancouver and loved our view from our room on one of the top floors. The hotel was very old and not well cared for. The room was tiny and the bed was hard and uncomfortable. I'm not sure what the thread count was on the bed sheets, but I've never slept on anything as course as these. We booked another hotel for our second night.

I was slepping in the west faced and was horrible sleep well because there are a big fan in the parking, it´s really noisy.

We, my two young boys and husband stayed here for 3 nights and loved the central location. It's a 5-10 min walk to Stanley Park along Robson Street which is full of great food places, also 5-10 mins to English Bay Beach and has easy access to many of the other areas like Coal Harbour and Gastown. We think the rooms are a little on the old side but clean and comfy. Lots of space in the x2 double bed rooms for all of us. The gym is not very good but could easily be made better. We would stay here again but I probably would also check out around for price comparisons.

It was our first time visiting Vancouver and a friend recommended this hotel to us, saying it was an affordable, decent but outdated hotel with a central location and after staying here, we totally agree. We were fortunate to be placed on the 39th floor in a deluxe double room (non-smoking) with two double beds, a mini fridge, a wet sink, and a flat screen television. We were treated to an absolutely stunning million dollar view of the city, English Bay and the mountains. We found our stay extremely comfortable in this spacious room with clean sheets and soft pillows to sleep after long hours of hiking, walking, biking and sightseeing. Although the washroom was dated, we always had clean, soft fluffy towels, and warm/hot water for our showers.

This hotel is located right on Robson Street, which is a major busy street filled with shops, ethnic restaurants, coffee shops, sports bars, and grocery stores. We never had to worry where to go and find food to eat or pack food for our picnics, or go for drinks since everything is literally a few steps away. For health nuts, there is a Whole Foods Market a few minutes away where you can have your fill of healthy food. If you would like a more affordable grocery store, there is Safeway, a Western Canadian supermarket chain, further down from Whole Foods. There is also a very nice little local produce store, right across from Whole Foods, that sells fresh fruits and vegetables, mostly locally grown.

For shoppers, there are a variety of shops from big names to little boutiques, and even a few souvenir shops in between. For bikers, there is a bike shop ("Bikes on Robson") across from the hotel (a few minutes walk) that you can rent bikes for half a day or whole day and go biking around the city. Stanley Park is very near the hotel and bike shop, so you can easily spent a day biking around there. If you want to take the city's transit system ("SkyTrain"), it is just a 15 minute walk to the closest station.

An efficient feature of the hotel is its express check out, which we found very convenient. Instead of checking out the last day and to avoid lineups in the morning, we checked out the night before easily and quickly. I highly recommend guests to use this express check out!

Last but not least, I would like to mention that the staff at front desk are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Every little question we had, they had the answers right away and even tips on how to get to certain places or what is of interest to tourists! :)

Room Tip: Request for a higher floor room facing the English Bay. Watching the view and especially during suns...

We stayed here to renew my passport in Vancouver. It was okay, i was not expecting too much. I can hear noise in my room from the other room. But the location is great, it's very near the shopping area of Vancouver which is the robson st and about 15-20 mins walk to Canada place.

Stayed August 2013
