Stayed here for one night on our way up north on our road trip around Vancouver Island, eventually found the public car park at the back of the hotel, this was reasonably priced and went up the lift into the hotel.
Previous reviews mention the 80's decor, its still there, rather like going into a time warp, in fact if they leave it any longer it'll all come back into fashion again!
Anyway, the rooms have been re-decorated and are lovely, we would have had a gorgeous view over the Bastion, however its under renovation and there wasn't much of it left. The hotel wasn't very full and was reasonably quiet, however if it was full I dont think the sound proofing would be very good, but we had a great nights sleep when we were there.
The only down side is most of the better places to eat are in the Old Town, which is a good 20 minute hike up hill from the down town area, but if you want to be right by the harbour and watch the float planes come in, this is the hotel for you.
