My husband and I have lived in Kits for a year so we've had the time to discover where the good spots are, we never heard of any exceedingly bad reviews of this hotel so we booked a few nights in one of their Superior Rooms.
I'm sorry to say that although the packaging is well tailored it didn't deliver much on their advertised promises. I have to give the front desk some credit, that they did try - after the second attempt at communicating with them. The restaurant left something to be desired though. I think I made the mistake of informing the hostess that because it was midday, too early for dinner too late for lunch, that we were interested in appetizers and drinks only. I felt that because we weren't ordering off their dinner menu that we weren't important enough to be received like other guests.
By the time the waitress took our order they had seated 4 other guests and of those 4, served 2 drinks before us.After our appetizers, the waitress arranged to bill our room but needed my husbands signature, she presented the bill but did not return to our table so my husband had to present it to a Maitre d' to get that resolved.
Needless to say we were not impressed and our meals elsewhere after that and by the second day of our stay we resolved to cut our stay short. The view from room 307 is great but we can get that view from other hotels in Vancouver too.
