I was so impressed with this hotel when we checked in- we had a one bedroom suite, which was super clean, had a great view and lots of space. We were really impressed with the room! The furniture wasn't super comfortable, though it never is in hotels, so I can't say much there! The food was good, and came quickly, and the prices were reasonable.
In the end, I had three issues with the hotel- the noise, how bright the rooms are with the blinds closed, and the service we had when checking out/getting our car from valet.
First, the noise- I expected some noise, especially from planes, since it's so close to the airport (and that's the reason we stayed there) What I wasn't expecting was all the street noise we could hear. We could hear horns, large trucks driving by etc...since they just remodelled the hotel I would have assumed that they would have put in better noise blocking materials.
My second is how little light the curtains blocked out. I found the rooms were still really bright with them closed. I am usually impressed with how well hotel blinds/curtains block light, however that wasn't the case here. It's not a huge issue, though it did make it a bit harder to put our baby to sleep!
Third, we had some frustration with checking out/getting our car from valet. It took us 10 min to get in touch with someone (couldn't reach front desk either) to get our car, and when we went down to get it they had forgot to bring it around and had to wait another 15-20 min for them to get the car. It's not that big of a deal, but we were on our way to catch a flight, so all time is valuable.
All this said, I would stay again for a stop over in Vancouver, though without my child, who is a light sleeper and wakes easily.
