We liked the location a lot, plenty of restaurants & a supermarket on Robson St. and a short wall to Chinatown/Gastown. On site parking was good - costs extra but self parking and in/out any time.
My gripes were (1) WiFi would cut out every 2 minutes for 10-20 seconds then come back on with a full strength signal. Highly annoying. (2) Something was making a really irritating buzzer sound every 2 minutes or so in the ceiling of our room by the door, the whole time we were there. No idea what that was.
If you're on a budget this place is fine, but it does have the feel of being a student halls of residence so don't expect the lap of luxury.
Pool etc was closed for cleaning the last 2 weeks of August which coincided with our visit.
