I arrived late at night from the airport, so I suppose that's why I didn't notice I was at the hotel right away even when my cab ride stop right in front of it! I spent only a weekend here, but I felt so spoiled by all the amenities. I was greeted immediately by a very friendly concierge at the desk. I didn't have much luggage but the elevator seemed a bit small.
The hotel lived up to my expectations after seeing all the photos on trip advisor and the hotel's website. My room was on the 4th floor and provided a gorgeous view of Vancouver at night. Before falling asleep and getting ready for the next day, I enjoyed watching local channels on the HDTV set. I took full advantage of the free wi-fi (I found that it was difficult to get wi-fi anywhere else) and the free calling back home in California. The room, bathroom, and shower were spotless.
Although I bought a day pass for getting around the city, I must admit I actually spent a majority of my time walking because of how easy it was to get around from this place.
Leaving on Sunday afternoon, it was no problem taking a short bus to the Granville Sky-train and head to the airport. I have never been to Vancouver (or Canada) so this hotel has set the bar high for all my future visits to Vancouver and the rest of Canada.
