Well located, clean and friendly...

Extremely friendly knowledgeable staff. Excellent location. Clean well appointed bathroom. Main bedroom and kitchen had tired decor however everything was clean and functional. All that I would request is that a small and large saucepan be included. Love the view to the mountains on a clear day...

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

An IGA supermarket is located very close to the hotel. The liquor store located next to this is rather expensive so it may pay to shop elsewhere for beer or wine.

Great hotel

I was impressed with the size of the room - it was very large and bright. The kitchenette was nice to have. I loved the central location downtown and plan to stay there again.

Great room and great value!!

Staff were awesome, very friendly and professional. Room size was huge, loved it!! Incredible hotel room value during week day stay. Location was great, really appreciated being close to a small market store as well as good shopping. Like the green program $5.00 restaurant voucher, great idea used every day of our stay. Just two small pet peeves..............expensive charge for internet usage and had to always ask for sweetner in restaurant. With healthy choices everywhere would be nice to have sweenter on your restaurant tables as an option to sugar. Coffee tends to get cold as we waited for sweetner............

Nice place to stay for a few days

Good place to stay, especially for a great price. Room has a nice full kitchen, and rooms were nice sized. Lighting in the living room area was lacking. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No gym, but nice pool - short lap pool. The location is in the middle of things - somewhat noisy until the city settles down (higher floors are better), easy walking distance to the main downtown area, stores, and restaurants. All in all, a great place to stay.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

For the outdoor enthusiasts, a short walk away, you reach a path along the sea, for biking, walking, jogging, and blading. Very nice place to walk, and it takes you to Stanley Park, which is absolutely amazing.

You can walk to anywhere in the city in 45-60 min, and personal safety is never an issue.

A very pleasant surprise

Needed two rooms at the very last minute and Orbitz offered this place. Surprising, it was outstanding. The location was convenient to Davies street with wide selection of restaurants and four blocks from shopping district. On the 20th floor, fine view of the city which was great even at night. Room just a little bit worn but mattresses and showers were high quality and tiny kitchen worked well. Had to pay $33 for parking but internet was free. All and all, it more than did the job.
