My wife and I stayed over a weekend as we flew in to Vancouver to catch a hockey game. Coming from the airport the location couldn't be better as it is only a 5-10 min. drive to the hotel. My first impression as we arrived was WOW! What a beautiful looking place as their lobby is large and inviting done up in, yes, rock. The room was incredibly clean and laid out nicely. The bathroom was huge and sported a large walk in shower rather than a tub but that was perfect for us. The beds are the best beds I have ever slept on. It was like sleeping on a huge cloud. I had to force myself out of bed every morning.
We tried a few restaurants and they were just okay for the huge price tag they charged. The buffet was pretty awful though and I would avoid it if I could. The lounge at the fireplace was very relaxing after a night out or gambling. The waitresses there were very good and remembered us from the previous nights.
The casino was large and full of every gaming machine you could think of, so it was easy to get on a machine. However, these are also the tightest machines I have ever been on and I have beeen on alot. Payouts were very far and few between so we left after only a few hours and never went back.
Even though the hotel is close to the airport, it is far from everything else. To get downtown we took a transit bus which was cheap but at least 30-40 mins long.
I would stay here again for a weekend just for the beds alone and the fireplace lounge.
