Well after reading all the positive reviews on trip advisor and viewing the times square website and taking the virtual tour of all the suites of the hotel, along with the location right next to Stanley Park, I instantly thought this would be something special.
It was a good experience, but I was expecting much more. The pictures on the website of the rooms are extremely misleading, we were in a large 2 bedroom suite, which in reality was quite small and the roof top patio was again alot smaller than what it looked like in the pictures provided. The rooms were fairly good, tv had alot of channels, staff gave us an ethernet cable and internet connection which was fast and overall the rooms were fairly good, apart from being a little too hot at night. the beds were OK, but i've slept in many better.
The location is outstanding, right next to two of my favourite parts of Vancouver, Coal Harbour and Stanley Park. Very small walk to Stanley Park, great fun walking around this great Urban oasis watching the passing parade, Specatular views everywhere...and very close also to the stunning Harbour front suburb of Coal Harbour with its panoramic views accross the harbour, Stanley Park to the North Shore Mountains.
There were not many decent restaurants close to the Hotel, and there wern't too many cafes, and theywere quite poor compared to those back home in Australia.
Vancouver is an outstandingly beautiful city and I wouldn't hesitate to return, but may end up choosing different accommodation next time...however times square really does have a great location, and the rooms were decent enough to not annoy us, but I did expect a bit better.
