This is a funky hotel definitely pulled together with generation Y in mind. It is a place to have fun and be entertained. On the ground floor there was an entertainment area which included pool table, computers for internet access (Apple of course!), and an xbox. Upstairs there was a bar with a definite clubbing feel to it.
The staff all seemed friendly but not quite as client focused as those in the parent company's other brands.
The room was well designed apart from one thing - a full length mirror facing the toilet! The shower was big and had the option of hand held or rain. Like a number of the lower cost European brands they have adopted the soap dispenser option rather than mini-bottles.
Wardrobe and safe were in the bathroom/vanity area rather than in the bedroom.
The location was great - plenty of nightlife and food options in the immediate vicinty. The skytrain and subway stations were a short walk away and the hotel had a complimentary tuktuk to shuttle you to them if you weren't in the mood for walking.
