If you come by plane or transit, arrival would be convenient. But if you drive, the parking is awkward, inconvenient and a pain if you have much luggage.
They do not have normal coffee makers in the room (so I am writing this from a coffee shop across the street). They only have espresso machines. Aside from being loud (woke up my wife when I tried it this morning), it leaves nothing for those of is that like normal coffee.
The shower is also a pain to operate. They must know this as they give you instruction when you check in.
I am not tall, but not really short either. Yet when sitting on the toilet in the room my feet don't reach the floor.
It is a new hotel, so it is nice and clean. But I find the entire layout awkward and inconvenient.
One last note: if you are a light sleeper be aware the hotel is on the flight path to YVR.
