Stayed 2 days in Vancouver after an Alaskan cruise. Disembarked the ship early in the morning and was wondering what we were going to do with ourselves and all of our luggage for several hours before 3pm when we would be allowed to check in. We contacted the hotel in advanced to see if we would be allowed to check in earlier but was told the were not able to guarantee it but they would be able to hold our luggage if they could not accomodate the early check in time. We decided to try early check in any way. When we arrived the entire staff was very pleasant and courteous-they had no problem checking us in early and did not charge anything extra for doing so. Check in was speedy and efficient. Our room was on the 19th floor, was very large, and had great view of the mountains and the city. A great location-15-20 min walk to Stanley park through beautifully landscaped and tree lined neighborhoods and streets. A great location for those who don't mind walking- about 15-20 walk to any of the points of interest (Olympic torch, gastown, Canada Place, shopping district, Stanley Park and aquarium). A bit far from Granville island but easy enough to catch the bus and 20 min ride with all the stops included. The bed was quite cozy after a busy week on a boat with numerous pillows and soft sheets. The showers were wonderfully hot and had great water pressure. The hotel was quiet considering people were checking in and out at all hours of the night and there were a number of convenience stores or pharmacy close buy in case you forgot something or need to replenish. Has a restaurant in the lobby that we did not try (thought it was quite pricey) but an amazing Mongolian BBQ restaurant across the street that was a bargain compared to other restaurants in the city and the food was delicious. I can not say enough good things about this hotel-would definitely stay here again if in Vancouver.
