Oh how wonderful it was

The hotel is absolutely beautiful.. The views are spectacular and the staff is friendly and professional. The rooms are big, clean and have great views. It seems every room has a great view. The pool is outdoor so if it is raining or snowing you need to decide to go or not. In my case I had a 6 months old baby so we could not use the pool since it was raining. The overall experience was great though. The parking is way too expensive and the restaurant is costly.

If you drink make sure you take a bottle of your favorite drink. Alcoholic drinks are very expensive in Canada and specially in the downtown area.

contemporary decor with an old mattress

This was a great location for the waterfront. Seemed very safe and was clean. The staff was very pleasant. The business center was available 24 hours but the cost to use it was outrageous. Internet should be free when you pay so much for a room. The spa and treatment was amazing! The room was very clean and fresh. The view of the harbor and mountains was just beautiful in the morning; however the bed was pretty uncomfortable. I needed all of the extra pillows to avoid rolling into deep gullies in the mattress. I would stay again but would definitely make an informed decision on the bed. The bar in the hotel was hip and expensive. The setting was great! The pan asian cuisine nice but way over priced. You would do so much better by venturing out. There are a lot of great places to eat in Vancouver.

A great place to eat and drink with a contemporary feel would be the Cactus Club Cafe on Burrard. Its walking distance from the hotel 2-3 blocks.

Fantastic hotel

We stayed for 4 nights in March, following a week in Whistler. We upgraded to a king room with Gold Lounge Access and a harbour view upon arrival, which was well worth the money, as as well as a lovely view, we had breakfast, canapés & drinks in the lounge which had gorgeous views over the harbour. The room was amazing - spacious, comfortable and modern. The hotel is also in a brilliant location, close to the seaplane terminal, Gastown, Canada Place and a short walk to Robson Street. We walked to Stanley Park along the harbour, although the bus to take you there is very close to the hotel too. Concierge were very helpful at reception, as well as recommending places to visit, they also offer a complementary car service (first come first served basis, just tip the driver) - we didn't take advantage of this as everything was in walking distance but we saw the BMW cars all over downtown Vancouver.

Awesome Hotel!

Great Location along the waterfront within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Staff are super attentive and friendly. Rooms have TVs built into the bathroom mirror and remote curtains and sheers. The lounge and winebar are excellent! Would definately go back next time i'm in Vancouver.

The restraunt Coast is amazing, ask the concierge where to go they will never send you someplace that isn't good..I opted to eat fine dining, but I am sure there are less expensive places to eat. Lots of night life, lots to do, a week is not enough time in the City of Vancouver.
