This is a fantastic site to walk around, have a bike ride, visit the ocean, go shopping, go on a small bot tour, its all available next to the Granville Island Hotel.
I have stayed here before but my preferred room was not available. I accepted 211 but should have negotiated for a different room. It was exceptionally noisy.
I rented a bike but no one offered to show me how to use the lock. After sort of figuring it out how it worked i started out for a ride to the beach. On returning i found the key went missing from the lock I had secured to the bike. Informed then at the desk on my return. Initially they were less than courteous about it but i said if there is a charge of course i would play however it might be helpful for future guests to be escorted to the bike and given a brief safety instruction prior to giving someone a key. they did agree. I stay at other expensive hotels similar to this and they do this service, they also do not charge for the bikes if you are a guest of the hotel.
