From the moment we arrived, the staff were friendly and helpful.
Assisting us however they could. They really made us feel
I had reserved an Executive room, 1 king bed, with balcony. Because it
was the final destination of our honeymoon trip. And judging by the photos,
description, and other fellow reviewers, thought it would be an extremely
nice way to spend our last 3 days.
The room was nice, bathroom big & beautiful with a nice view. We did enjoy it, no question. It's just the carpet was damaged, kind of ripped and re-glued previously, but started to wear and seperate from the floor. Parts of the coffee table had large holes and the laminate was seperating. One of the wall sconces was very tilted and flickering when on, rotated it back in place & it worked fine. And since it was late when we arrived, too late to stop in the BC liquor store and purchase some wine to celebrate the last leg of our honeymoon, we decided to just open the bottle in the cabinet & pay the very extra fee for the wine. No problems with that, it's expected. But what we didn't expect was really dirty wine glasses. Not just a lot of dust on them, and not dried water spots. But something else all over them. Needless to say, it was dried on crunchy. So we decided just to drink from the bottle.
After reading many reviews and hearing how fresh bowls of fruit were given. We were a little surprised to see only a tiny candy on our night tables. Yes, most places don't put anything. Agreed. But this hotel isn't most places. It's a luxury hotel, and luxury prices comes with it. The other luxury hotels we stayed did put fruit, and fresh flowers in the mid-higher end rooms.
Maybe this was just our experience. But we were a little surprised, after reading their website and seeing everyones' descriptions. I doubt every room is like this one. And we should have said something. But we were tired from our travels, and just didn't want to waste our time at the front desk. We wanted to enjoy Vancouver!
