“Great location”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This building has been featured in countless movies. Walking in puts you right in the movies. Look up some and see if you can spot the scenes you liked.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

check out the mosaics, the elevator doors, the stained glass, the ceiling, the inside of the elevators. A masterpiece.

“lovely inside”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Still behind scaffold but lovely inside, limited access, ceilings from 1st floor worth a closer look and the lifts inside with wood inlay panelling are very elegant. Finish it off with a cocktail in the adjoining orignal art deco bar! 15 mins visit en route to elsewhere is sufficient. Can be seen from the viewing tower as well.

“Wanna be in the movies?”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

One of Vancouver's best kept secrets is to walk into this building and drink in the historical art deco. I dare you to take the elevator posing as a busy business person and take the elevator ride to at least the second floor. Many a movie has been shot in this awesome lobby and front door area.

It's located at the bottom of Burrars Street close to the waterfront convention center and entry is free and way too many visitors miss this simply tourist pleasure that has no line up and is free and perfect for a photo stop!

“A fine example of Art Deco”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The lobby is worth at least 15 minutes of your time. The walls, ceilings, elevator doors and elegant elevator floor tracking device, are just the beginning. Check out the inside of the elevator cars!
