Arrived somewhat later than expected but had no problems checking in. I had a room on the top floor ( #436 ). The room was of decent size and had a ensuite bathroom. I immediately noticed the temperature being quite warm in the room so changed it on the airco and went out to get some dinner hoping that when I returned the temperature would be more acceptable. To my surprise hardly anything had changed even though you could feel the cold air coming from the unit. As it made quite a bit of noise I had to switch it off or else I would not have been able to sleep. Despite the uncomfortable temperatures I slept reasonably well but made told the reception about my problem. They told me it would be looked into. I have no reason to doubt that this was done, but temperature wise nothing changed and I just dealt with it.
The reason I had no doubts about them looking into my airco problem was that this staff does everything they can to make you feel welcome / comfortable. Therefore my 3 point rating seems a bit low, but I couldn't give it a 4 point rating because of the room problems.
Location wise you cannot be in a better place. Right in the middle between the waterfront ( Canada Place ) and Granville Island with lots and lots of shops / restaurants in the neighborhood. The area feels very safe and it's easy to navigate.
Never ate at the hotel's restaurant as I opted to eat outdoors.
Not sure if I would stay at this hotel again, but I would recommend it if you are travelling on a budget and want to be in the city center.
