Negatives: I booked the Embassy Inn online through Expedia, and when we got there found out that the pictures that were posted online were misleading. We stayed in a run-down looking motel in a completely separate building! The beds were hard, the bathroom was tiny, there is no A/C, the TV was about 15 years old, and the wireless internet was very spotty. The walls are paper thin, so bring earplugs if you want to get some sleep.
Positives: There was a little kitchen area complete with stovetop, fridge, microwave which was nice. There's a charming little courtyard next to the pool where we sat and drank wine in the evenings. We also discovered that the 3rd floor had a patio where you can see part of the harbor and the side of the Parliament building. Although the Embassy Inn is in desperate need of renovation, the location cannot be beat. It's right next to the Parliament building, and we were able to walk to the B.C.Museum, the Empress, and Fisherman's Wharf.
Overall, the price we paid for the room was not worth the money because there are nicer hotels which we could have gotten for less. However, we booked only a week before the trip so it was the only hotel available within walking distance to everything.
