We loved our stay at L'Hermitage! We stayed for four nights as we vacationed in Vancouver. The location is terrific -- steps away from Yaletown and just a few more to Gastown and the main shopping area on Robson Street. (By the way, we LOVED Yaletown. It's just so cool. Endless restaurants/bars, seemingly all with outdoor seating, intermixed with shops. And, like I said, it's practically next door to L'Hermitage)
We opted for a one bedroom boutique suite, which was a spacious 640 sq. ft. Since we were staying for multiple nights, having the extra space was totally worth it. Oh, and we had a balcony for enjoying Vancouver's beautiful summer mornings and evenings. So awesome.
You should know that through the Fall, there is some pretty major construction going on directly across the street. I forget what the official "posted" times for them to work are, but they start between 7:30-8 in the morning, and later on weekends. It seemed like they wrapped things up around 5-5:30 in the evening. Anyway, this didn't bother us because we're early risers and we were out doing stuff most of each day.
Having the pool was a godsend. It's pretty small, but being able to take a dip felt amazing.
The folks who staff the concierge desk are great. They assisted us with directions, recommendations, and even reserved taxis ahead of time for us. Both times, a cab was waiting out front precisely when we asked, and the front desk called our room to let us know that the cab was waiting.
I almost forgot to mention the Wi-Fi. It's blazing fast, which is a rarity for hotels!
All in all, if you're looking for an oasis in the middle of a busy city (and you've got enough money to upgrade to one of the bigger rooms), don't hesitate to stay here.
If we ever come back to Vancouver, there's no doubt in my mind where we'll stay.
