Overall the hotel was a good place to stay. Clean rooms, comfy bed with nice sheets. Location is awesome on Robson street (there is a Starbucks across the street and a great restaurant next door called O'Doul's). The art in this "art hotel" is fantastic when I was here. A very interesting photography exhibit.
The downside of this place and why it only gets 4 out of 5 stars (I was tempted to give it a 3) is that is bills itself as a "arty designer" type hotel. You would expect this place to be decked out with fancy, modern decor. Other than the great art on the wall, this place is barely a 3 star hotel.
Room furniture is average at best. The TV is circa 1996. The bathroom is from a mid-range apartment in 1989. The AC hums and the carpet hasn't been changed in some time.
Now I normally wouldn't care about any of this except of how this hotel sells itself and my expectations. The airport Radisson I stayed at the first night in the city looked 10 times better in terms of an interior.
So, do you need a nice clean hotel with great staff in a fantastic location in Vancouver? Then stay here. Don't expect to be blown away with the decor.
Awesome eats next door at O'Doul's
Vancouver is awesome
