This was my second stay at the Hotel Monaco, and I've enjoyed it both times. The hotel seems to have been recently remodelled, and we really liked the decor. We stayed in a 'premium' room, and enjoyed the Gilchrist & Soames bath products. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and the evening wine reception was lovely. Join the InTouch program so you get free WiFi. The air in the room was on the dry side, so next time I might request a humidifier (which they will apparently provide for free!).
A note to women travelling alone: the location is great and close to lots of things, but also pretty deserted at night. I live in the middle of downtown Vancouver, BC, and feel totally safe in my neighbourhood at all hours of the day and night, but I don't think I would have been comfortable walking around alone in the area where the hotel is. Just something to keep in mind.More
