This really is the perfect place if you are going on a cruise...they take your luggage from your room and put it on the ship for you...that to me was worth a lot. I'm not sure I would want to stay here if I were not going on a cruise...its ok but there seem to be a lot of other pretty hotels in Vancouver. That being said the view is beautiful as this sits right on the water. The cruise ships literally pull up next to the hotel. Its also easily accessible to Stanley Park...just go around the corner, rent some bikes and head out.
