My husband and I were in town on a business trip for his company and had our two kids along. We had a nice sized two bed room. There wasn't much of a view (back of another building), but it was very light.
The internet was SLOW and kept disconnecting. That was irritating.
There is no ability to self park. You have to park on the street, in a parking lot, or use the valet service. That was irritating.
We found someone else's shoes under the bed. That didn't say much for housekeeping.
The room was mostly quiet as it was away from the front of the hotel.
We did not have a good experience in the hotel restaurant (see separate review of Catalano).
The amenities were nice. Lots of goodies in the bathroom. A minibar with room to put your own drinks in. A Keurig coffee maker. Etc.
I would say the nicest people we dealt with were the valets. They were helpful and actually conversed with us. The rest of the staff was more business like and not overly effusive.
The hotel was comfortable and clean and located close to many restaurants, the inner harbour, and the Royal BC Museum. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the location very much.
I'd recommend this hotel if you can get a room at a good price. We never had a chance to try to use the spa so can't say anything about that.
