My sister and I recently travelled to Vancouver to spend a week with our youngest sister. We have both been to the West Coast and Vancouver before, but have never stayed on Granville Island.
We had a late check in due to our flight times, and when we were shown our room we very quickly realized it was much too small for the week stay. We called the front desk and Yuko spent a lot of time finding us another - this was high season and hotel was fully booked.
The second room was lovely, water view and large - much better, thanks to Yuko.
During our stay, we enjoyed the restaurant on site (Dockside), breakfast, lunch, and dinner - everything was delicious and presented very appealingly. As well, the bartender makes a great martini.
Being a small hotel, staff recognize you, and remember your preferences (especially in the restaurant) - makes you feel very comfortable.
One of the things we enjoyed the most was the hotel location - right on Granville Island, a short walk to restaurants, shops, theatre, ferries, and of course wonderful water views.
The prices are comparatively high - but some things are just worth the $.
If I had to make one recommendation for improvement, it might be that the TV channel selection is very meagre - but who spends that much time watching TV with the wonderful views around.
