We decided to spend some time on the North Shore rather than staying in downtown Vancouver, and glad we did.
We had a mountain / North Vancouver city view room. The double bed room was a neat design with unique partitions in the bathroom and a window between the bathroom and the main room.
All the fixtures were of high quality and the room had a fridge and microwave. My only regret of the trip was turning down an upgrade for a nominal fee to have a harbour view room which would have looked out over the harbour and the Vancouver skyline.
The area around the hotel was fun to explore as North Vancouver is making great strides in opening up public space along the once industrial waterfront area, while recognizing the areas famous ship building past. So if you are into industrial history and harbours, this hotel is right in the heart of it.
If you want the hustle of Vancouver, hop on the Sea Bus which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel or if you desire to see another view of Vancouver from the North Shore, head over to Ambleside Park (bus / car / taxi) in West Vancouver and walk the sea wall for a different view of Vancouver and the Salish Sea (Georgia Strait).
If your desire is to just stay put, enjoy the restaurants near the hotel and take in the Quay market at the sea bus terminal.
