The hotel is in a very good downtown location, many bus stops nearby as well as the Metro stations, Pacific centre shopping mall, and countless restaurants, bars, clubs, convenience stores.
I had two double beds in my room, with a choice of soft and firms pillows on each bed. This didnt leave a lot of room to walk but I didnt find this to be too much of a problem. As well as the coffee machine there was a clock radio which had an ipod dock so I was able to play music from my ipod. There is a safe in the room and the wifi was fast and free.
Outside street noise wasnt a problem for me, my room was facing Nelson St. The only noise was from the people waiting for the elevator as the elevator was director opposite my room 511. The hotel buffet breakfast is in the connecting Irish pub, which was very good. There is a choice of scrambled eggs, Bacon, Hash browns, Toast, Cereal, Fresh Fruit, Yogurt, Granola, Scones, Muffins, Coffee, Tea, Milk, Juice and the special of the week which was pancakes, and Waffles on the day I left.
Opposite the hotel is Tim Horton coffee shop which also has Cold Stone Creamery. If you love ice cream you will love this place. This was the only Cold Stone Creamery I have seen during my travels across Canada.
They have a luggage room next to reception so I was able to leave my luggage with them. The staff was extremely polite and helpful throughout, when I checked out I did get charged for extra breakfasts. I only noticed this when I got the bill by email but they corrected this when I returned to collect my luggage.
