In retrospect, my friend and I should have booked the Loden immediately upon deciding to come to Vancouver. Next time, there will be no hesitation. We drove up to Vancouver on Friday night, and had unfortunately booked into another hotel based on budget and location. Our experience was less than desirable, and after virtually no sleep on Friday night, I called the Loden on Saturday morning for some salvation. I had stayed at the Loden the year before with my fiancé, and we loved our experience... not sure why I didn't give it the review it very much deserved last March. This visit, the Loden blew away every expectation my friend and I could have had about our hotel experience, and NOT writing a review is out of the question! From the word go, the staff went out of their way to be helpful, friendly, and seriously went hugely beyond the call of normal duty when it came to client service. From accommodating us last minute with a gorgeous room (and giving us an early check in), non-aggressive assistance with valet, luggage, beautiful complimentary beverages in the lobby and offering local maps and suggestions, to providing simply outstanding client service with a sincere smile... THIS is what every hotel should aspire to be!! Yes, it's a little more expensive for those on a budget, but I swear this downtown gem is worth every single hard-earned penny. My girlfriend and I felt like royalty. In particular, Jessica at the front desk provided exceptional service that made us want to run up and give her a big hug... she is completely amazing, and knows what it takes to go the extra mile to make people relaxed and genuinely happy. The lobby is cool and comfortable, the rooms are design-y enough to satisfy the modern connoisseur without being the least bit pretentious... great art, good color schemes, SUPER comfy bed and pillows that felt like resting your head on a toasted marshmallow. User-friendly layout with engineered privacy options, and the quiet... oh, the quiet. You'd never know you were downtown. Friendly room service with very yummy breakfast. Perfect for friends, couples or a solo trip, this hotel will make you wish you'd found it much sooner. I'm originally from Vancouver, living in Seattle now, and I have absolutely no doubt that I will stay at the Loden from now on, no questions asked.
