Would we stay here again? Answer - no. There are plenty of alternative choices in Vancouver.
We thought we had reserved an ensuite room and, as the room originally allocated to us had accidentally been given to guests arriving earlier than us, we'll never know. We did have a private bathroom across the corridor with plenty of towels etc and we were provided with robes. The bed was comfortable. We were happy with the location a few blocks from Gastown.
The downsides: we felt the property pushes the boundary on the "Boutique" description yes it's an old building but it does need further thought on decor and the 'shabby chic' look wasn't achieved. The 'healthy' breakfast is very basic. We also found our 2nd floor bedroom to be very noisy from the wooden floors above us, and banging of doors.
