Got the skytrain from the airport to downtown and wasn't aware you could get the 6 bus from there to the hotel, but still the hotel is nowhere near a skytrain stop, which is what I'd have preferred.
I'm not someone who likes to pay taxis for such obscene amounts. So decided to walk to the hotel, a 20 min walk with luggage is not going to set you off in a good way.
1. Nice suite was offered with reliable wifi, watches some sport streams during our stay.
2. Shower instructions not provided, so had to speak to the desk about that.
3. Good cooling and heating feature in the room, fan was powerful and kept us cool in the hot weather.
4. Terrible location as already mentioned. Yes it's in a shopping district, but what use is that if it's so far from a sky train stop.
5. Clean room and bed, but a smallish bathroom in comparison.
6. Very slow lifts. Standards had been set by two other hotels during our trip to Canada.
7. Breakfast was not varied. We ordered continental and were given enough to last us till lunch, but come on, would it hurt to give us some variety?
8. $200 dollars were placed on hold for the stay, negotiated down from $300, much too high to justify.
Overall happy with the stay itself, but I didn't like the location.
