Reviewed March 10, 2013

I have stayed here a couple times when I go to concerts that are right downtown. Great location, easy to get to everything, tons of food and coffee shops. It is very noisy as is it in the heart of the nightlife scene and also lots of construction going up around the area. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy. I think you pay $15 a night for parking. Staff are helpful if you have any questions on where you're going,where is good to eat, or the best shopping. Overall a good place to stay for a short period of time.. oh the house keeping likes to start early as well, so if you planned on sleeping in, good luck!

Room Tip: Book in advance and they'll usually upgrade you if they can

This room was really great! Clean, beds are very comfortable, probably one of the better beds I have slept in and I have stayed at the Four Seasons and The Fairmont, beds are just as good! This is a great spot for shopping, pubs, restaurants etc. If you are looking for quiet then maybe this is not the place for you because the pub is downstairs. Cheap parking too.

Room Tip: Try to get a room higher up to avoid pub noise

The staff is very kind and efficient. I had no complaints. Everything worked as planned.

You have to know that the property is in the heart of large entertainment area with shops, restaurants, bars, etc. it's ultra convenient for any downtown activity. With that said, it may be slightly noisy. If you fall asleep well, you should have no issues.

Also good to note that there are only stairs to the lobby, so if you are walking impaired, this is not a property for you.

I choose to stay at this hotel to attend a conference at the Pacific Convention Centre. I choose this hotel because of ratings here that gave it a four circle review, they even boast it with a sign in the lobby. It's a 6 minute drive to the Vancouver Convention Centre. I only needed to get my eight hours sleep and within that time I managed to realize that no one should stay here if you need to go to a conference the following day.

Okay, it may be a four circle if you can ignore the following:
- extremely small rooms
- very loud rooms due to poor sound isolation (we could hear the family in the adjacent room)
- located in the entertainment district where pubs and people party 7 days a week. It's loud!
- the buffet breakfast deal is very unsavoury and takes place in the pub where heavily inebriated people left a few hours before your arrival - the Tim Horton's across the road is much, much better.
- hotel parking is in the small lot next door which is usually quite full due to people going to the next door strip club, pubs and nightclubs but it was FREE!
- some staff members are unpleasant to deal with, the reception girl in the morning was just bad but the reception fellow in the evening was great!
- can make your red eye flight, continue to the next morning.
- you are going to a concert and will be partying all night and will need the few hours to recover before going to the pub again in the morning.

Pros:
- rooms linens clean
- washroom is decent
- FREE intermittent Internet
- TV to drown out surrounding noise

Suggestions:
- Tripadvisor should take away their rating placard as it is deceiving and I have no idea how they got it! And you should find else where to stay for a business trip or conference.

The rooms are very basic but clean. The location is perfect: Skytrain, restaurants, the mall, shops, ATMs are literally by your doorstep! The downside is, it is in the core of the city life so it gets really, really noisy!!! But the problem is not the noise: it's the poor sound-proofing!!! you can hear the whispers of people passing-by the street! you have hear the conversation of the staff by your door!!! I am sure the next-door could hear the trickle of my pee!!! If the management is trolling on this review, Please Improve Your Hotel!!! The hotel does not have a ramp, so it is not wheelchair-accessible and strollers for babies, wheeled-luggages are almost impossible to get through unless you got some muscles!!!

Room Tip: Bring your own fridge and microwave! If you request for one, the staff will suggest to use the staff...

Cheap but would not recommend. Bathroom has no fan. No fridge or microwave in rooms. place is noisy all day and all night. Ruined the whole stay. Hotel charges $16 for parking per day. Hotel staff is friendly however. I wish I had known before I booked my stay with them.

First impression was a bit of a let down as the only way in was up a few steps with our heavy luggage and nobody to help. But the staff were friendly once inside. The room was small but adequate, clean and comfortable. It had a pub attached to the hotel where we were given vouchers for breakfast. This was also ok. The pub was a very nice place to have meals too. The location was fine and we hopped on a bus to go to the Stanley Park Aquarium, they didn't take cash notes and said we didn't have to pay.... so that was nice too. We would stay here again, no problem.
