“mixed feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2010

the location of this hotel is excellant. lots of restaurants, shops, cafe's in the area. had a nice suite room with unobstructed view of the water. i would recommend requesting a room on a higher floor. we were on the second floor and people walking by would be able to see in our room and we could hear music from the restaurant/bar below.
the sound proofing leaves a lot to be desired. i could hear clearly the conversations that went on in the room next door and people in the hallways. had some issues with the staff and the room not being ready.
the balcony was great, decent kitchen facilities and comfy beds. i think it was overpriced and the price would probably make my decision on whether i return or not. but you can't beat the view. a pool would have been nice.

very nice hotel, but service in bar/lounge was poor to say the least, it wasn't busy and we had to wait for a server, and then she was slow and very indifferent. I would stay there but would go elsewhere to dine and lounge....

We booked this hotel because it was close to the airport and we were arriving late at night. The room was wonderful, looking out toasted th water. We walked around for several hours in th morning and found the area was beautiful, filled wig stunning flowers with a path along the water. Nice breakfast muffins downstairs, too.

My sister and I stayed 2 nights in a suite that had great ocean views , a seperate bedroom, kitchen, sitting area and dining table. Good balcony to watch the boats go by There is a small walkway /park area between the hotel and the ocean but this makes for great people-watching with the boats going by in the background.

Our room was not ready when we wanted to check in. By 4 pm, the "gauranteeed" check in time, it was still not ready and it was 35 minutes of hanging out in the lobby before it was finally ready. It is VERY annnoying to have to wait to get in to your room when you are tired and it is past the check in time promised. Plus, the sofa bed was not made up so we had to call down to get housekeeping in to make up the bed, The response was quick but still.......and the room next to ours must have been part of a weekend wedding party as there were people coming and going all day and all night and we were actually woken up in the middle of the night as there was a couple arguring right outside our door.

These things left us with a very guarded opinion of this hotel. I figured if you are made to wait on a room that should be ready, the least they can do is shuffle you into the bar and offer to buy you a drink, To be kept waiting in the lobby, getting more and more impaitient, is not the way to treat guests.

Having said that, the room was great, the beds were comfy, the bathrooms were lovely and I MIGHT stay here again if the service improves. I would be on my guard the next time I stayed and hope that the service has stepped up a couple of notches. We did not use the spa services so cannot comment on that.

We had the pleasure of staying here for a one-night getaway. The rooms are a good size and very clean and in the bathroom shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers are provided. The hotel is nicely situated for enjoying an evening stroll along the waterfront and admiring the boats in the marina. A very pleasant setting indeed. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious and of high quality and the service was outstanding. Overall a great evening was enjoyed and we look forward to staying here again.

The hotel is right on the ocean and the rooms were beautiful. The staff were amazing! It is fairly pricey but we really enjoyed our stay there. We had been in downtown Vancouver previous to this and Sidney was like heaven. It is really quaint and quiet and relaxed. Will definitely be back!
