This was our second time bringing our family to Times Square; this time we have two kids and it was still a perfect fit for us. They really took care of every detail and allowed us to make many special arrangements (by email) ahead of time. The staff is made up of super-nice people who have "seen it all" and were able to anticipate our needs and solve problems before they even appeared.
The location is amazing for families - Safeway, Starbucks, a zillion restaurants of every stripe (from quite nice to cheap takeout, and everything from falafel to cupcakes) and even a few pubs just down the block on Denman. Plus, it's right along the park, so you can walk in to Stanley Park, feed the ducks, head to the Aquarium or its associated playgrounds, or just have a nice walk anytime you like. It's only about a 20-minute walk down the main shopping street, Robson, to the giant Chapters and the Art Museum. It was maybe 40 minutes in a taxi from the airport.
Our suite was excellent for a family with two little kids, and every time we'd mumble something like "wouldn't it be great if you could compost here?" or "If only there was a cutting board," suddenly we'd realize that the solution was right there at hand. It was ideal to have the extra bedroom so that we could take turns sleeping when the kids were jet-lagged. I would make two minor suggestions: 1. put safety bars on the windows, and 2. Upon next renovation, install blinds that make it darker, for little kids at night/naptime.
We didn't use the nearby gym, but we did eat on the rooftop. What a treat! It is sheltered from the rain but has a lovely view and even a bbq which some other couples were using when we were up there. I was really surprised to have that great space available to us.
The furniture and amenities are not luxurious. They are homey. This place is like a second home for us in Vancouver and we will absolutely be back. I can't say enough good about the staff and facilities for small families. It is safe, clean, and super convenient.
