This place was a bit difficult to review, I wouldn't say it was 'average' though it's not 'very good' either; perhaps 3 1/2 stars would be apt. I erred on the higher side because this is a decent value place to stay compared with others in the area, with an excellent location in among the downtown goings on and the full hot/cold breakfast buffet served in the adjoining pub was very good (was funny to be eating in a pub that would've been packed only a few hours before - good clean up job!). The parking was a bit expensive, but just go with it because there are so many parking restrictions and street closures on boozey nights (Fri or Sat) that you won't find anything else. Managed street parking on a Sunday night fine. On appearances though, this place could score higher. It looks a bit old and basic, befitting of the surrounding not-so-aesthetically-pleasing Vancouver downtown area. The room are basic too, could do with an upgrade, but they were a good size and clean. Don't stay here on a weekend if you have an aversion to drunks. As I said, the location is great, but with the Canadiens showing their Commonwealth spirit through their ability to binge drink as good as the Brits it gets very noisy at weekends!
