This is a newer property and some websites have it categorized as a 4*. I would give it 3* maybe 3.5* Got a great deal by way of that bidding website.
Rooms were typical for a higher end brand. Front desk had no problem accommodating our room location requests. Wi-Fi was included. Room doors do not have any kind of insulation to stop them from slamming, so from 6am on you hear every room door slamming shut on the metal frame. Really... how much would that have added to the bill when building this place?
The pool is...... different. You get off the elevator on the second floor and then work your way through some long corridors and then down a flight of stairs and then through some more corridors. Once you get there it is very nice as is the Fitness Facility and it all looks over the Fraser River. The other "different" part is it is shared with the condo owners in the building next door.
They have an airport shuttle but don't have an airline check in kiosk in the lobby. There is a small restaurant on site, which I did not try. With the exception of one restaurant across the street and a coffee shop in the seedy looking Clarion next door, it is a bit of a walk to anywhere. You can see the River Rock Casino and the Skytrain station from the hotel, but I'm not sure I'd do the 15 minute walk after dark.
For what we paid on the bidding website this place is super-duper! For what they want on their website, you do have many other good options like The Marriott YVR which is better located for walking to restaurants and shops.
