We arrived from the UK tired and, hungry, and dirty, and found to our delight that we had been upgraded to a penthouse suite. The staff were very apologetic about the fire that had temporarily closed the restaurant, but when we saw our room, we forgot all about food. It was vast, with a dining room, 2 bathrooms - and a jacuzzi in the bedroom! We were so comfortable in the hotel that it was hard to leave it to join our cruise ship (where the bed was far less comfortable). The public market was amazing in the variety and quality of the food - nothing at all like the sad collection of vegetable stalls that you find at most UK town markets. The hotel staff were very helpful in getting us to and from the aquarium, giving change, arranging taxis. They really seemed to care about the guests. The hotel brought in free pastries and coffee every morning, while the restaurant was being refurbished. We ate them in the sunshine by the water, looking at the Vancouver skyline. It was pure bliss.
