HOTEL-We decided on the Pinnacle based on reviews and recommendations from friends who visited and suggested that staying in North Vancouver would be a great money saver. We have not been disappointed at all. The reception staff members were very pleasant, the decor very contemporary, the rooms very modern and clean and extremely quiet.
STAFF- The staff exceeded our expectation when we arrived by sending us a welcome gift of chocolate covered strawberries 20 minutes after we settled into our room. This was our 10th wedding anniversary and I vaguely remember talking, mentioning or indicating that when I booked the hotel but didn't expect them to consider it important. They did and we were impressed.
VIEW- On the debate about mountain versus waterfront view, we suggest if you get a waterfront ask for one as high up and on the western end of the hotel. Ours was on the 6th floor directly behind a big yellow crane that obstructed our view of downtown:(
COMFORT- The hallways walls are lined with leather and dark wood and carpet was well maintained and spotless. My wife is extremely picky when staying in hotels and this one made her feel right at home, as witnessed by our not doing anything on our second day here but sleep-in and grab a great pizza ( Boston Pizza recommended by staff) for dinner. Although the hotel is located adjacent to a working and active shipping dock we were never disturbed by any excessive noise, even though they were actively dismantling a ship hull just out side our window. The movie selection was great but are a bit expensive.
AMENITIES- The pool, weight room and spa are all well-maintained an clean. We also took advantage of the free bike rental and to bike around Stanley Park. It was quite easy to take the bikes on the Seabus and then explore downtown.
