“Clean rooms, nice view”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

There's just a soda machine and no shops around, a convienence corner/shop at the reception would have been nice. Unfortunately you can't pay with American Express card or debit card. The rooms are clean and complete, the tv's are old.

Thank-you for taking the time to submit a review of the Simon Hotel. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the views - they really are breathtaking!

Should you choose to stay with us again, please feel free to indicate on your reservation request that you would like to pay debit upon arrival and this can be arranged (versus a credit card payment). Unfortunately, we are unable to accept American Express. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As we are continuously making changes to the Simon Hotel, we appreciate all feedback we receive. I will take into consideration your comments on the televisions and shops. If you are looking for a snack during your next stay, there is a vending machine in the laundry room on the main level of the building and the Residence Dining Hall is also open for all meals. You may also choose to explore UniverCity, a short 15 minute walk away, where there are a variety of restaurants and stores.

Once again, thank-you for the feedback and we hope to welcome you back again in the near future!

Cheers,
Katelyn Narain

I was surprised at the quality of this hotel. I was at SFU for a meeting, but would happily return for a holiday! The staff were delightful, the dining hall was fantastic, and the location is convenient (at least in the non-snowy months). The views were terrific also. In the dining hall, you can even cook your own meal so you don't have to be concerned about not getting what you want. There is lots of healthy food and even a fully stocked fridge with ingredients you can use to make your own meal. Everyone on campus was helpful and the gym is fantastic. Only $5 to drop in. The room was clean and spacious and the bed really comfortable. Everything about this place was wonderful. I was blown away. Oh the value for money was OUTSTANDING too.

Dear valued guest,

I am thrilled to hear that your stay at the Simon Hotel went above and beyond your expectations! We love to hear words like "amazing" and "outstanding"! We work hard to provide quality accommodations at an affordable price. We're so happy you took the time to enjoy the Dining Hall and the gym, both of which are conveniently located close to the Simon Hotel. Make sure you check out the salad bar during your next stay - it's healthy, delicious, & has a ton of variety!

Thank-you for taking the time to review our facilities and I will pass on all of your kind remarks. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Simon Hotel in the future!

Cheers,

My family had to find a place in a rush. Simon Hotel was much more than what we expected. A very cozy room and a beautiful view. The staff is very nice. She even moved us to a corner room which is quieter and a little bit bigger. The room is not big, but given the price tag of $100/night, it is gorgeous. My 2 years old daughter loves the surrounding area. She played there until 9 pm every evening.

This is a great hotel on the 8th floor of a university residence at Simon Fraser University.
Simon Hotel is the "top of the line" facility provided by the SFU residence services. The hotel floor is secure and separated from the other residence floors. The rooms are spacious and very modern, with every hotel amenity you could want. Excellent work station with fast and free internet, daily room service, coffee/fridge/ satellite TV, modern bathroom, ironing board, iron, even an umbrella. Super comfy bed. And the room is pristine clean. I have stayed here a number of times and find this is a wonderful convenient place. The price is very reasonable. The staff at the office were very friendly. Cleaning staff did a great job. Right next to the hotel is the main cafeteria which has been recently updated to be like an urban cafe. It provides great all you can eat meals for a good price. I understand you can also take advantage of all the recreation facilities on campus if you wish... I didn't have an opportunity to do this so I don't know the cost for a facility pass, but you couldn't beat the facilities available to you.

Room Tip: Registration is done at the main residence office. You will want to check on line for a map to the...

Stayed at the guest accommodations at SFU residences with a large group. Single rooms, with shared bath facilities and common room. Meals provided in the residence dining hall were generous and good. Although plainly furnished and somewhat 'industrial strength' decor, the stay was comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed being on Burnaby Mountain and exploring a beautiful campus.
