We booked a family room for a one night stay. 3 adults. Courteous staff at check-in, because our SUV is taller than the 6 foot height limit to the underground garage, we were directed to their special secure parking garage at the rear entrance of the building. We were met there by a hotel employee, who opened the large gate. We were told that the parking space was good until the next day at 6 pm ! Pretty good deal if you want to discover downtown on foot. The room was spacious and the two queen beds clean and comfortable, super nice pillows ! The bathroom (tub/toilet) was separate from the sink, which we all appreciated. The sliding doors opened onto a small balcony with a view of downtown. We did not mind the traffic sounds. There is an excellent heating/cooling unit in the room that is much quieter than most hotels we have stayed at. This "family room" had an additional, separate, cozy/small room with a single bed. I was concerned that this was going to be like a "cot", but we were very surprised to find a nice thick regular mattress. Very comfortable for somebody under 5 foot 10. We were on the 5th floor and there are a number of elevators to chose from to find your way to the lobby or the pool, the directions are posted very clearly and you cannot get lost. The hotel lobby is spacious and inviting with a lounge and restaurant area all located on the same level. The breakfast and dinner menus looked great but we ended up eating somewhere downtown while we were out shopping. All three of us agreed this was a good hotel, it was nicer than we had expected and we will stay here again. The location is very central, close to the business hub of downtown the courthouse etc. It is a very easy walk to all the major malls downtown and Robson street. But It may be too much for some people to walk to the Waterfront, Denman St, China town or Gastown. A note addressed to all the people who complained about the pool in the past: it is clean and it was open during our stay.
