We stayed in this hotel for three nights during a trip to Vancouver. It was easy to find, and very accessible on Vancouver's really good public transport system. It's a big hotel which still looks a bit half-finished (we were in the newer part), but it was very comfortable. We'd been upgraded to a bigger room (described as a suite), and the staff were all really nice and friendly.
The location itself is convenient for Downtown, Gas Town and China Town, and you can walk to lots of the main sites (the convention centre, the art gallery, etc). It's a bit noisy but not enough to keep us awake. The area itself isn't particularly beautiful but you can get to places that are easily enough. I'm not sure if I would have walked around on my own late at night, but with two of us I didn't feel at all worried.
Breakfast is complementary, but it's fairly basic - rolls, yogurt and granola that you can help yourself to. There is coffee and tea available all the time which is nice, and there's also free internet on several terminals around the hotel (with printers). There was a coffee machine in the room but no kettle - but you can make hot water for tea or hot chocolate using it.
Overall we had a good stay here and I would recommend it and return there myself.
