I chose Harbour Towers from the Clipper hotel options. I paid $20 more / night for a "suite" and since I had two children with me, this was a very good decision. The suite is 2 legitimate rooms. 1 bedroom, 1 living room with a pull-out bed. The suite included a small kitchenette.
The location is about 15 minutes walk to the central business district. For my taste (with 2 kids) this was 5 minutes too long. However... there are other hotels even farther away. So all in all the location was pretty nice. It is, however, the closest hotel to the Clipper terminal. That is nice if you have kids.
The hotel itself and rooms themselves are dated - no way to ignore that. But the people are very courteous and helpful.
The hotel has a small indoor pool which was a big hit for our kids. I was very thankful for the small well-kept pool.
Overall, while the Pacific Hotel or Empress Hotels (etc) are closer and perhaps a bit nicer, the Harbour Towers is so much cheaper that it wins out. I would probably stay here again. The size of the room and the price are too good to ignore. And the hotel - although dated - is far superior to the even less expensive hotels in the neighborhood (I'm looking at you, nasty Days Inn -- although to be fair that is where you get the liquor - at Days Inn)
