the hotel isn't the newest in the city, so expect things to look a little bit dated and only a few floors have views, BUT the staff really do work hard to make the hotel a really great place to stay (and honestly who really spends time in their room when they are on holiday?!). It's spotlessly clean and tidy, any issues are quickly and politely resolved by front desk staff (who are great) and much to my relief (having just flown for 10 hrs with two kids under 5) the quiet room at the back I requested really is very quiet at 6pm and stays that way all night. The location is excellent - Tim Horton's opposite opens 5am - midnight, perfect for jet lag, but for the unadventurous McDonalds, Safeway and Starbucks are also within a block's walk. To keep the kids happy the facilities of 2nd Beach are a 10 min stroll away. I'll stay here the next time I'm in Vancouver, and look out for the mounted police sign in the parking lot (the parking charges are pretty reasonable too)!
