Great location. Comfortable.
My favourite part of town to stay. Can see the ocean and mountains from the balcony. Bed was so comfortable I slept like a log. Having grocery store and drug store connected, and many great restaurants nearby makes this an excellent location. Staff helpful and friendly. No complaints!
OLD, very old
I’ll start with the good things…
The location is great, steps from Denman Street which has an abundance of restaurants and shops. It’s close to Stanley Park and English Bay. The view from the balcony is lovely. The staff were kind and the hotel was clean.
We stay in Vancouver several times a year and always choose a 4 star. This Hotel came up on Priceline as a 3 1/2 star, so we decided to book it. How much difference can 1/2 a star make?
I love staying in old hotels that are full of character, but this was a 1970′s hot mess with it’s pink tub and worn brass door knobs, florescent lightbulbs, not to mention the glass fuse box on the wall.
I would have rated this place a solid 2 star for it’s positive traits and location, but I really have to challenge the 3 1/2 star rating. It makes me never want to book with Priceline anymore.
Was not a huge fan of the coast this time around. The room was extremly out dated, the WiFi didn’t work the whole weekend and it was extremly stuffy and uncomfortable. The newer rooms probably would have been better. The rate also has seemed to go up. It was defiantly not worth the 269 a night

Could have been better, I think, Room given was poor
We just needed to stay overnight while attending a concert at Rogers Arena. I purchased one night though Priceline, granted I did not pay anything near the hotel’s website rates, I believe, it shouldn’t matter which way you do pay, you should always be given appropriate service. I found that we were given a less than acceptable room, no view, on the room one up from the lobby. We were told all other rooms were occupied. I found that this was not true and hard to believe as when we pulled into their parking we had no trouble parked, noted that it was over 1/2 empty. I think that this is one of the least appealing rooms I have ever stayed in, the walls were marked up. boy did it need a new paint job to start. But the worst part was dealing with a not so very honest reception guy.
We met another guest in the elevator, said she was staying on around the 30th floor, we said good view? All she said was it was too hot, too uncomfortable. Perhaps air conditioning was required, not working, not sure. FYI we were staying on a mild day in middle of April. Not sure what this hotel would be like in the middle of summer heat.
The location though is pretty nice, lots of restaurants, close to beach and an easy bus get’s you into downtown shopping district.
There was a $25.00 charge for Parking.
Unless there is nothing else available in 2 1/2 stars (this is really what it felt like) I would go elsewhere.
Great location but decor getting tired
I stayed here with a national convention. The facilities were overall satisfactory, but the decor was very dated and tired. The staff were excellent and provided great service. The Internet connection was extremely slow and frustrating. The hotel is located in a fantastic area where there are many restaurants. It’s a bit of a hike to places like Granville Island and Gastown.
