Ok for a quick stay

This hotel room is pretty old. they are in need of a renovation. if you are looking for a budget hotel with a kitchen, this is your place. there is a market nearby where you can buy groceries so you can cook your own food. you can pretty much hear what is going on in the next room so you might want to be quiet if you dont want them to hear you too. the lobby area looks renovated to look nice. overall, very average.

A home away from home

I stayed there for a couple of nights just to pamper myself a little bit. Though I did not have a chance to take advantage of the spa, all the rooms came with kitches (and there was plates, pans, silverware, and cups all included). That was great... I had the 1 bedroom suite. Great view of the city (22nd floor), and the room was pretty spacious. I looked at all the other hotels in their price range, and none was quite as good as this one. Also wanted to note, room service cleans your plates and what not for you! except for the pan... because I didn't soak them (I cooked spaghetti). Overall! super great. I asked them to hold on to my bags after I checked out, so i could explore the city before my flight. They did so. So, wonderful service~

Grandville street is a short walk nearby, and that's full of night life. I recommend that for those who are looking for bars and clubs, etc.

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.

Nice but noisy

The doors have a tendency to slam, which can really wake you up if people next to you are up late. Other than that, great room, decent breakfast, good location.
