Had a wonderful 3 night stay at English Bay. Even though the power was out to the block for most of one day (no discount was offered) the stay was enjoyable. Beds were ok, everything worked, clean updated bathrooms, kitchens with dishware and utensils. We requested a big pot to make spaghetti, housekeeping brought two while we were out. Funny thing, the rooms old built-in heat did not work. Bedroom and livingroom had portable heaters that worked great. However, the cable box had to be unplugged to plug in heater... No tv and heat at the same time. LOL this could have just been our suite.
$150 per night for a bedroom and living room, sleeps 5, with a partial view of bay, fantastic walkable area, beach two blocks away, ice cream shop, multiple falafel restaurants, Bayside Lounge (corner of denman and Davie - we spent a fair number of hours here enjoying food, martini's and the amazing view.)
Great deal. Would recommend for a great budget stay.More
