Me and my 2 sisters stayed here in November for the Nicki Minaj concert. I chose the location purely on its distance from Vector. Booked at the end of August a 2 bedroom apartment which was probably priced slightly up due to there being an event as most hotels probably had done. I agree with one review below regarding the need for a secure booking facility online on their website, hence I rung instead to make booking rather than "risk" my cc details online.
When we arrived at hotel the check in was prompt and also asked how many keys required. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom junior suite which was huge! The balcony was insanely big and was pretty much the size of the living area. The apartments were very modern and equipped with a kitchenette with basics needed for cooking, big dining table, a large L-size couch, desk and bedrooms were decent size too with a wardrobe each and a tiny vault. Bathroom was modern and had ample face, hand and bath towels, toilet & tissue paper, soap dispensers, hair dryer. Apartment pretty much had everything you need!
We stayed for 2 nights - Fri & Sat and found location to be quite handy from Queen St, Viaduct and lots of food places around, theres even a liquor store on the corner. On the night of the concert, there were people partying up a few balconies above us and had some booze get tl our balcony. We didn't want to be penalize for seeming like we littered ourselves so on our way out told the reception person who checked out the situation and made sure he knew what room it was. Definitely commend him for doing this and liked the fact they stick to their no party policy. The next day our flight is later on the afternoon and they allowed us to store our luggage at no cost and also ordered us a cab to airport for $35 which was a good deal.
Will stay here again if need arises ie concert at Vector.
