This is a very good modern hotel right on the harbour almost next to the legislative building. It is an easy walk to the harbour, and "downtown", and all the hop-on/off buses.
Our Pacific Room had a very comfortable King bed, two seats, desk & chair and a small balcony with direct harbour views. The bathroom is a decent size with combined bath/shower. There is also a very handy extra basin and mirror right outside the bathroom.
There are several dining options in the hotel. We tend not to eat full buffet breakfasts but found the Courtyard Cafe a good alternative for a lighter option. We also ate at the Mark one night (the fine dining option) which was excellent - the food, the wines and the staff - and I thought good value for the money given the quality.
The lounge has live music on Fri/Sat nights and was very pleasant for an after-dinner drink.
There are plenty of restaurants within an easy walk and the desk staff were able to provide good recommendations based on our preferences.
The hotel is across the road from the ferry terminal for Washington State and about a 10/15 min walk to Fisherman's Wharf. The bus terminal is about a ten minute walk - just behind the Empress Hotel. You could walk with wheelie-bags but taxi fare is only $7/8.
The Robert Bateman art centre is just across the road and is well worth a visit.
This is a quality hotel, well located and with good staff. Recommended.
