Just a short walk to the SkyTrain, the water taxi, B.C. Place, Yaletown, Chinatown; need I say more? And if you have to go further they are part of a Vancouver hotel shuttle service that will take you almost anywhere. The hotel has a lot to
offer; they need to do a better job of advertising this on [...]. Very nice rooms and very friendly helpful staff; we'll stay here next time we visit Vancouver.

We really enjoyed The False Creek Water Taxi. You can travel all day on it for $14. That means you can go from the train station/Sceience World area near Quebec Street all the way out to Vanier Park and the Maritime Musium; staring/stopping from any point along the way and doing it all over again as long as you want. With a bike in tow you can ride out to Stanley Park from the Vancouver Aquatic Center pier; that's what we are planning to do the next time we visit Vancouver with the bikes that the Georgian provides to its residents when they stay there (2 hour rental included with your stay). Once on the water taxi you will want to stop off at Granville Island and visit the Public Market. It's a fun place with great food, flowers and other items that you can purchase as well as lots of street muscians that perform all day long for your enjoyment and tips.
This had not been our first choice for a hotel but it ended up being the best. Wonderful staff, clean comfortable rooms and the shuttle service was great. Everyone was helpful and made sure our trip was enjoyable.
Just stayed one night in late May 2009 on a last minute trip to Vancouver. Booked this hotel for the great rate offered due to parts of the hotel being under construction. No construction noise in room, however, and bed was comfy, bathroom was
squeaky clean, staff was very helpful. Free wi-fi. $13/night to park a car. I generally don't stay in four star hotels, but I'd stay here again if the price was right. Did not check out the pool or restaurant.
