not quite as expected

I upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. There was only one small tv in the living room and none in the bedroom. In addition, for $9cad, we bought wireless internet access for the night. The signal was very weak and cut out frequently in the living room but was strong in the bedroom. When I wanted to watch tv and my partner wanted to be online, we had to be in separate rooms. The parking charge ($17cad per day) was higher than other similar hotels in the same area of downtown Vancouver. Overall, I was disappointed in this hotel and see no reason to stay here again when other nearby hotels offer more convenience for the price. On a positive note, the beds were very comfortable!

Not that great

[...] I am not happy with this property. The room we got 2102 was at a old portion of the hotel. It needs lot more updating. It had only 1 AC in the living room. Bedroom was getting very hot. Both rooms were shabby and need fresh coat of paint. Balcony and glass doors were dusty. Also the TV remote didn't work at first. We took this suite because we had 2 teenage children. That room didn't have enough plates and cups. The front lobby looks very impressive but not the actual room.

Not exactly what it seemed

I expected an updated, European-type room and what I got was not exactly that. The lobby was upgraded and looked clean and bright. The rooms had old furniture and fixtures and reminded me of a much cheaper hotel. Also my room was a 1 bedroom (upgrade) and looked just like a reformatted apartment. The furniture was old and the bed was okay. My room had 1 air conditioner in the living room and nowhere else and so in the middle of the night the bedroom got VERY hot. We opened the windows and let in all the noise that was outside...including he yelling and cheering from the comedy club next door. The bathroom had chips in the bathtub and was small. I expected a European-type upgraded room and really just got a multi-room motel like feel. The $102 I paid was fair for the great location but don't expect a "nice" hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful, though, to their credit. Definitely had an apartment building feel on the floors though.

Kinda ghetto

Great location, nice lobby and restaurants (although somewhat stark feeling). The rooms were very outdated and a bit shabby. The air was difficult to control, leaving us freezing some of the time and sweating the rest. The staff were mediocre at best. It was a very good location for walking to Robson and other major sites.

Great location but rooms do not match the lobby

This place is in a great location and the lobby/bar is excellent. The rooms do not match what you get in the lobby though. A little older, dated, but overall clean. I was expecting more for the money but you are paying for location. The parking is extra, and there is only free wifi in the lobby.

Good value

Third time I've stayed here. The rooms (really large-suite type) need updating (no AC in bedroom e.g.) but it's a great location and the restaurant and staff are wonderful. I'd stay here again. There's a wonderful spa and coffee shop as well. Very centrally located.

2-3 blocks from the Sky Train to and from the airport. Much cheaper (around $5) than a taxi ride (about $40)

Weekend Getaway

The hotel was an overall good value. Hotel staff was very friendly. The room was dated. Great view of the mountain peaks. Noisy because it's right next to a hospital. The parking garage was scary because there appears to be frequent break ins because of broken glass on the floor. The beds are also very uncomfortable.
