I booked this hotel through Hotwire and got it at $69/night. For $20 more I was able to get 2 queen sized beds instead of a king. I was quoted $175 over the phone when I called the property directly.
This hotel is conveniently located right next to Metrotown which is a massive shopping complex on the outskirts of Vancouver. For those people not familiar with Vancouver, Burnaby (where this hotel is located) is a suburb of Vancouver. If you are interested in going into downtown Vancouver, there is a skytrain station located very close to this hotel (less than 5 minute walk) which will get you into town in around 20-30 minutes (depending on rush hour).
The hotel itself was great--free underground parking and lots of it. The room I booked was very large, contained 2 comfortable queen size beds, a chair/ottoman, and a desk for business travellers. There was also an extra-deep bathtub in the bathroom. The rooms and hallways were very clean and we did not hear any beeping from the elevators as our room was far from it. The service we received at check in was also very friendly and efficient. Although we checked in at a peak time, there was no line up because there was plenty of staff to help the customers.
My only complaint about this hotel is that the windows did not open. I know this is an architectural issues with buildings that are made to be esthetically pleasing.
I did not give this hotel 5 stars as there was nothing that significantly "wowed" me.
I would definitely stay here again. I would not recommend it to people with young children (who aren't familiar with the city) or people with mobility issues. They might be better off staying in a downtown Vancouver hotel.
The Hotwire price is a fantastic value and it would be near impossible to find a hotel of this calibre in downtown Vancouver.
