The friendly staff gave me Room 521 that had stunning views of the Vancouver skyline and I enjoyed the freshair from my balcony, especially after my long flight. The room was well-appointed and immaculately clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept really well,too well at one point.
The local area is great for exploring, especially Jimmy's Juice Bar at the nearby
Lonsdale Quay Market. I also survived the nearby iconic Vancouver hike of the Grouse Grind.This is a once in a lifetime hike, for me anyway, and the beer at the top was one of the best..The bath on my return to the hotel was well deserved.
The hotel staff, at both the desk and the restaurant, were friendly and made me feel
welcome. Unfortunately no time to use the pool or gym.
On my final morning, I was up early (lov e that jet lag) and saw two enormous cruise liners docking at the cruise terminal across the still water, against the skyline.
What a beautiful city!
