Clean but dated
We recently went to Vancouver to go to the World Cup soccer games. The rooms were dated but clean. We had an ocean view and it was really nice to have. You can keep your balcony open at night to catch a nice breeze. There was a large closet w shelves. Pillows were very uncomfortable. Hospitality service was good. Our only real complaint was the elevators. They are really small and slow and during busy times we had to wait a long time. Tip: send the elevator up so it comes down quicker.
There’s a pool that the kids liked indoors so has that indoor pool smell and a jacuzzi too.
Overall it was a good 3 star hotel near Stanley park and restaurants.
Old, hot room
I was not happy with this hotel. The room cost as much as a nearby hotel, but the nearby hotel had water bottles for the coffee pot and cold air conditioning. When we entered the room, the temperature in the room was 78 degrees. I walked over to the free standing air conditioning and turned it as cold as it would go. We came back 4 hours later, bout 5:30 pm, and the room was 76 degrees. I called the front desk, they sent someone to the room to look at the a/c unit and after turning it on and off several times, he told me that the room was hot because the sun sets on the west side of the building and we needed to wait until the sun set…huh…not good to tell a guest. Then, after the sun set, at about 10:30 pm, the room was still 76 degrees and when we woke up at 7:00 in the morning, the room was 79 degrees. My advice…don’t stay on the west side of the building! The pool and jacuzzi were great and so was The Brasserie restaurant.
Great location and great staff
We were given a warm welcome on booking and told we had been given a upgrade on our room to one with a view. The room was clean and with a balcony overlooking English Bay. A easy cycle ride on mostly flat pathways nearby.

Stayed here this June. Was difficult to find a place because of FIFA. I lived in the neighbourhood a few years ago, so I knew you couldn’t beat the location.
The room was large and clean, we even had a small little kitchen. The bathroom was tiny. It was a hot week in Vancouver so air conditioning was a must. The unit was one of those in room ones with a vent to the outside. It was like trying to sleep with a truck in the room. So noisy!
I’m sure had we not needed the air conditioning, our stay would have been more pleasant.
Very Nice Hotel-Superb Location!
This is a very nice hotel in a superb location! We had a room overlooking the harbor and mountains with balcony. The hotel is just off Denman street with all it’s great restaurants! It is a five minute walk to Stanley Park one way and five minutes to the beach and sea side walkway the other direction. Hotel staff gave us many helpful recommendations as well. We will definitely stay here on our next visit.
