My girlfriend and I had never been to Vancouver before and were very much looking forward to the Loden. Rather than try and write an elaborate story, I'll get right to the point.
The staff was very friendly and very helpful (as are the Canadians in general). They gave plenty of great suggestions and confirmed our previously made reservations were solid. They gave us a ride wherever we wanted to go, whenever we wanted to go, like a taxi. I ended up tipping them more than a cab ride would have cost, but they were worth it.
The hotel itself is stylish, comfortable, quiet, and small in feel - like a boutique hotel. It was in a very nice, quiet part of town, but close to everything. Vancouver is a small town and you can walk the entire city in a day. Not crowded at all, we barely bumped into anyone the entire stay.
Complimentary Espresso every morning and from what we heard, the restaurant there is top notch..(didn't eat there). My only caveat is that we went in January so it was not expected to be crowded. I'm not sure if the service is the same in the summer, but it seemed like we met a new staff member every day of our stay. The rooms were very nice, well equipped and comfortable with great views. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on in a hotel. Water pressure in the shower was lacking and the sink / vanity area is a little cramped for two people...but still nice. The only other thing the hotel needs is a hot tub...somewhere...anywhere
