“Great service, hotel and location”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights in 2 different rooms (we ended up arriving a day early) Both were very nice but I loved the room 524 with a king bed and a balcony with a gorgeous partial view of the bay. Had breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant and both were great. Both rooms were clean and updated and very nice. Free wifi which worked great, I had no issues with the internet service. We would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to Vancouver.

This was a very reasonably priced and clean hotel for our one night in Vancouver prior to our Alaskan cruise. The hotel is in a great location with good restaurants and bars nearby. There will be some noise from the street, but we were on the top floor and had no problem sleeping at night. It is right near the beach, and very importantly, a block from the Safeway so we could stock up on items for our cruise. If we were to end up in Vancouver again, this is definitely a hotel I would stay at again.

Room Tip: Aim for the top two floors or the backside of the hotel

Thank You for choosing to stay with us before your cruise. I hope you enjoyed your cruise and were able to grab everything you needed from the grocery store just up the street. It also sounds like you were able to take in all the amazing restaurants in the area. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vancouver.

Our room was comfortable with two queen beds and a view to the beach. The bathroom was a little cramped and dated but certainly clean and adequate. Appreciated check out wasn't until 12 noon. Free wi-fi. This hotel is within walking distance of downtown Vancouver either back along Davie St or turn right along Bidwell St (around corner) then along harbourside to Canada Place, where the cruise ships dock. We hired bicycles from the shop opposite and spent the day exploring the many bike tracks around Vancouver. Many restaurants and cafes in the area.

Three of us stayed here before our cruise. We were on the top floor over looking the street and a small view of the ocean. I picked this hotel because it was close to Stanley Park and right across the street from a bike rental place. The hotel staff was GREAT!! They were so friendly and helped us with different things to see and where to eat. They do have a restaurant there and the prices are fair and food is good. There are several places to shop and eat in walking distance. The bathroom was very roomy, and the beds were comfortable. If I ever get back to Vancouver I would stay there again.

Great location and right next to the Stanley Park, English Bay. Bike rentals right across the street and great dining and lounges within a three block radius. Public transportation was excellent as was the Hop On/Hop Off tourist buses that were scheduled every 20 minutes throughout the city with excellent driver narration. Tourist friendly city.

Thank You for choosing our property and taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found our location and primarily Vancouver so tourist friendly. You are correct the Hop on Hop off bus is great for touring the city and renting bikes is another fantastic way to travel through the streets. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vancouver.

The hotel is a stone throw from the beach and Stanley park. A lot of restaurants within a few minutes walk. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They charge $15/day for parking but most hotels do in Vancouver.
