Hotel is in an excellent location. My husband was attending a conference at the new Convention Center next to Canada Place. The conference rate at their chosen hotel was double the cost of Days Inn, and the walk was very short and easy. We first stayed on the top floor at the front of the building, in a room that was very clean but also very tired. The sink was so ancient that the pop-up plug had died of metal fatigue years before, so the drain's open maw threatened to swallow the cap of my toothpaste tube, or a piece of jewelry. I kept the rubber plug provided perched over the hole. At some point in the past, the water supply to the shower had leaked and caused water damage to the floor of the bedroom, causing there to be a "soft" depression underneath the carpet that gave me the shivers whenever I stepped into it. The staff had parked the refrigerator right next to it, so this happened more than you would guess. And lastly, the room was small and awkward. Only one side of the bed had room for a lamp and night table. The top floor is also where the laundry is located, and there was a rattling of the doors that reminded me of the spin cycle on my High Efficiency washing machine at home. Hotels do a lot of laundry, so it was almost constant during the day. Than a loud talker moved into the room next door, and I asked the front desk when that guest might be checking out. The clerk immediately offered me another room, gave me a key so I could look at it before deciding, and made it all so easy! The new room was on an airshaft, which meant I could open the window and not hear bar stragglers calling to each other in the wee hours of the morning. The heat and a/c units are very efficient, but noisy, so I liked this outcome. There were no "construction defects" in the new room on the seventh floor. The front desk offers exchange rate between dollars Canadian and dollars US, without a commission or fee, which was great. Although most every shop has been willing to take US currency, most have charged for it. As for location, easy walk to a Pharmasave where they have milk, juice, soda, and snacks. A couple blocks further takes you to an IGA Marketplace.The attached restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch strikes me as very mediocre and expensive. But the pub next door is excellent. We stayed for a week, and ended up eating most of our meals there. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the Amtrak station and if you arrange it ahead of time, you can get a ride to other downtown locations of your choice. And lastly, the bus to Stanley Park and the Aquarium could not be more convenient.
