Hubby and I have been to Vancouver before and I have always wanted to stay in this hotel because I've heard good things about it, we were not disappointed. Firstly I booked through booking.com, I booked a king room which is on the upper levels. I got an amazing price for 5 nights, couldn't be happier. I was in contact with Dee via email in the lead up to our visit just to make sure they knew our flight could be delayed. Dee was wonderful and very helpful, an asset to the company. Our room was on the 26th floor, room 2601. A large room and well appointed. The only thing I found wanting was the small supply of teabags and no real milk, just coffee whitener, but there is a London drug store down the road a few metres to buy those things. The bed and pillows were great, which is hard to get in some hotels. The view from our room was also wonderful, especially at night. The only other thing I would say about the room is that the bathroom was quite small, but that's not a huge issue for us. Everything was spotless. The hotel is within walking distance of the harbour and many good restaurants. Shopping is also great in this area. The free shuttle to Capilano suspension bridge stops out the front of the hotel and from memory that is about every 20 minutes or so. Also the hop on hop off bus stops out the front too and it's about $40 per person for a 24 hour period, well worth the ride. Anyway we found this a great place to base ourselves for our visit.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely!!!!!
Have stayed in a couple of Vancouver hotels before, this is our favorite!
If management are reading this, your hotel is a gem, but maybe speak to your reception staff about being more approachable, it didn't sour our experience but they could be a little friendlier.
