While Hotel Riviera is centrally located and close to public transportation, this "boutique" hotel leaves much to be desired. Our room which consisted of two queen sized beds plus a kitchen contained furnishings from (what I can only describe as ) the former Soviet Bloc of the early 1950s. One bed was essentially unusable in that it would creak each time someone turned over. The window a.c.unit also began making banging noises on our second of two nights there. Each furniture surface plus the basin and counter in the bathroom were covered with tacky contact paper. The bath towels were both small and scratchy. Rooms in the front of the hotel look out onto busy Robson street; the noise abates around midnight.
But parking was free!More
