Great Hotel in downtown Vancouver. The staff very pleasant and booked us into our room at 11am when we arrived early. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Rooms have a kettle, fridge, aircond and balcony. They refresh toiletries everyday and will even change your sheets everyday if that what you would like. Our room was very quiet but I did request a room away for the elevators when I booked. The lap pool is a good size and is on the same level as the gym. The gym is small but is adequate. A tour Hop on Hop off Bus stops right ourside the Hotel. There is a restaurant downstairs with reasonable food and there is a SafeWay grocery shop about 4 blocks away( a ten minute walk) the staff will give you instructions if you ask. We found out that you can travel around Vancouver all day for $9 with a travel pass using the public transport. We bought a $9 day ticket at the train station and we were able to use the ferry, train and bus service all day. It was a fantastic way to see Vancouver. We caught the ferry over to North Vancouver, once there we caught the bus to the Skyway of Grouse Mountain, Cleaveman Dam. Back to the Marina for lunch(great shops and markets). Caught the ferry back to Vancouver and then caught the bus to Horseshoe Bay and back to the City again, checked out Stanley Park and all for $9.....
I would highly recommend travellers to stay at this wonderful Hotel.
