Nice hotel. Ask for the best room available, preferably with a view. Location was great. At West End, 3 blocks from Stanley Park, and 2 blocks from False Creek. Don’t go to the restaurant. it’s a huge rip off.

Old Room in a Well-situated Hotel
Perfect situation for travelers. Main attractions are walking-distance. Spacious room but urgently need an update. Wifi is very slow, I had difficulty to check my emails! Should probably be considered as a 2-star hotel.
Coast Vancouver -- Coal Harbour
If you need to be downtown by the convention center, or if you want to be close to the Harbour (beautiful), this is a great location. It’s not trendy by any means (look to Gastown or Granville St. for that) but it’s quiet at night and for many, that’s important. Not a lot of choice in terms of food here, but it’s a $6 cab ride to more foodie-centric areas.
My biggest complaint is that the bed linens are truly AWFUL. Which sounds like a small complaint, but after three nights/24 hours, it gets a little old. They are clearly a good portion polyester (very scratchy, kind of like basic Ikea sheets, only worse) and when combined with the microfiber duvet and European-style cover, it’s easy to end up way overheated and sweaty, keeping in mind that synthetics don’t breathe, meaning sweat beads up on the sheets and stays there, adding to the discomfort. Yuck.
The hotel restaurant is OK, but not great. Servers are nice, but not in any hurry to get anything you need (i.e. my drink was sitting on the bar for a full 10 minutes before anyone decided to deliver it, even though there was only one other patron dining at that time).
There aren’t many good views from this hotel, unless you are on the very top levels are there are many tall buildings around it. There is a small outdoor pool and hot tub on the 5th floor (no view), with very little seating and no other outdoor seating is available (besides at the restaurant).

A very nice vacation!
This hotel is in a very good position, you can visit the city by walk (if you aren’t too lazy!)
The structure looks a little old but the service was very good, the 2 bedroom apartment was clean and very comfortable with a nice view.
The staff is very friendly and helpful!
In the area there are many pubs and restaurants and it’s also close to the beach, it’s also easy to find a taxi if you need.

Great location, got upgraded to an ocean view. The room was spacious and clean but really needs and update. Staff was helpful. Lots to do in the Area with many restaurants in the area to choose from. Easy walk to Robson for shopping.
