We did a cruise and tour of Alaska departing from Vancouver. When I stay in Sydney my work puts me up at Radisson Blu, which is a 5-Star hotel. I used loyalty points from those visits to stay here for two nights prior to the cruise and expected a similar experience to Sydney.
This hotel is not a 5-Star experience. However, it is clean. The beds are comfortable. You get nice city views. It has ice machines (listen up Sydney!). The staff are pleasant and helpful. The location is good being close to the train station - trains every couple of minutes! We could see Granville Island from my balcony and could probably walk there in a half hour or so. That doesn't include the wait for the elevator - but they are putting in a second elevator so that problem should be alleviated soon.
The Speakeasy Bar & Grill over the road serves cold beer and good meals. Broadway is busy but I didn't notice much noise at night.
My only issue was with the air conditioning. It is a wall mounted unit at floor level and is quite noisy. It was warm (late August) and we needed the air. However, a person who travels without earplugs is not a seasoned traveller.
All in all it was an entirely acceptable hotel - just don't expect Radisson luxury like you will receive at the Radisson in Sydney.More
