This was another instance in which a grand old hotel has been re-modeled and re-branded to become a very affordable, convenient place to stay.
Our room was good, although a little oddly shaped. The TV was in a chiffarobe in an alcove of the room. The room was generally very clean - except for the rug. The rug was a trifle grimy, and in this case, buckled so that we had to be careful not to trip over it. Our window faced the main street and let huge amounts of sun pour in. It was easy to be blinded and overheated here unless you were very diligent and inventive about closing the curtains. The view was great though. We could look out and watch the picturesque proceedings at an eccentric hair salon in an old building across the street.
The included continental breakfast was offered in a small basement room that was usually crowded to overflowing. A small, harmless fire involving the toaster there necessitated our having to evacuate the building one Sunday morning. I usually preferred to eat at the "Smile" Cafe across the street.
Also, the staff was very friendly - however they failed to issue us our wake-up call one morning. No harm done. Our alarm clock came through.
These small negatives aside - the overall value of the place was great. The Hotel is on a bus route that will take you directly to Stanly Park. The harbor and other parts of downtown are all within walking distance.
There's free access to a computer in an alcove in the lobby, so if you don't have a Wi-Fi- ready computer with you, you can still check the Internet at almost any time.
It's otherwise almost impossible to find such a good place in the $100-a-night range in the heart of downtown Vancouver. I'd stay here again.
