My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights before leaving on an Alaskan cruise. We grew up in Vancouver and wanted to visit some of our old haunts. The location is quite central if you want to explore the downtown. The False Creek Ferries to Granville Island and other points in False Creek is only a 5 minute walk south. Walking to restaurants and bars is somewhat more challenging. Davie Street is about a 15-20 minute walk north, but uphill. Yaletown is a 15 minute walk east best done on the waterfront - off the busy streets. Walking west along the seawall gets you to English Bay in 20 minutes or so with lots of shops and eateries.
Underground parking is available for a daily fee and is internet. I don't mind that in this sort of tight location.
Our room was on the 4th floor facing south. With no air conditioning, it got quite hot in the day but we spent most or our out and about. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, kitchen area very functional. We actually used the oven one night bake some prepared Italian food we picked up in Yaletown at the Urban Fair (a trendy grocery store) about a 20-25 minute walk away. There are 2 small convenience stores kitty corner to the east and west sides of the building, but they are quite limited. Not an opulently appointed room but pretty good for this price range in downtown Vancouver.
There was always a person at the front counter who was helpful in answering questions. Breakfast is included in a small room on the ground floor (pastries, toast, coffee, juice, fruit) - enough to get you going.
