This is supposed to be one of the best 100 hotels in the world?
The bed is hard -- no pillowtops here. The lobby and room furniture are worn and seedy, suggesting that the Opus' days as some sort of living legend are probably behind it. The rooms are nice enough, but I've spent half this much for hotels that were at least as nice. (At these prices, I expect triple sheets and extra pillows and blankets at a minimum.) Nobody warned me about the $25 daily parking charge; and the guy at the desk cheerfully explained how to access the wifi -- without mentioning that I'd have to pay $15/day for it. (I can name a dozen $100/night highway motels that can manage free wireless internet. If there's a traveler's bill of rights, this should be on it.) The hotel's amenities are extremely limited, too.
The location can't be beat if you're doing business in Yaletown. If you're not, there are plenty of better places to stay in Vancouver -- especially if you're willing to spend what this place costs.
Seriously: It doesn't begin to come close to living up to the hype.
