Excellent

The service was excellent and the room was great. I got upgraded to a Boutique Master Suite which was enormous! It had a kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances from Bosch (fridge, microwave, dishwasher, vent, and stove). It also came with washer and dryer, a study room, a fireplace, and a small dining area. Location was also very convenient. They are very central to 2 train stations, restaurants, and shopping. My fiancé and I had a pleasant stay and we will definitely come back if we visit Vancouver again!

Unbelievable Boutique Hotel

I loved everything about this hotel. Don't look any further. I am a hotel snob and I wouldn't even write this review if it wasn't an unbelievable hotel. They only have 60 rooms and it's attached to upscale residences. If you want to sleep in, choose another hotel during the construction across the street. I stayed in April 2014 and it was noisy. Honestly it didn't bother me because I was on east coast time and already awake. Plus I was there on business not vacation. Regardless one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Loved it!!!!

Great Hotel, Location, and Staff

“Great Room, Staff, Location, and Dog” Oct 24, 2011 sfjonathan We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was right off of Robson and walking distance to pretty much anything else we wanted. The front desk, bellmen, everyone, was always courteous, helpful, and professional. The bed was comfy and room was large enough to have a sitting area. The outdoor pool was heated so it wasn't too bad to get in even if it was only 50F outside. The hot tub was also a welcome way to relax. We loved Hippo, the dog concierge. He did help show us to a lounge as our room was getting ready. That was a nice touch. I could keep gushing but I think it's pretty clear by mine and the other reviews: stay here if you're going to be in Vancouver/

Luxurious and comfortable!

Fantastic service, comfortable room with many high-end upgrades, and an amazing, friendly staff. Great location just off Robson. We would stay here every time we travel to Vancouver.

Great Deal!

This was a great hotel for the money. The rooms are very nicely finished and you can't ask for a better location (Close to Robson shopping and a short walk to Yaletown). Staff was extremely helpful in finding places to eat and things to do during our short visit. We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely go back!

Convenient to sites, shopping, restaurants

We spent 2 nights at l'Hermitage. Comfortable room with king bed, balcony, large bathroom with separate shower and tub. Nice workout space plus outdoor spa and heated lap pool. They provide robes, slippers and spa towels. Several lounge areas with fireplaces and big screen TVs on same floor as our room. We didn't try the large breakfast served on 5th floor--around $17--but it looked good. Walked to Stanley Park, shopping, restaurants. Vancouver Art Gallery is close. Very friendly staff and they loan bicycles and umbrellas, too.

Excellent Service

I chose this hotel after reading reviews and it was an excellent choice. The hotel staff was over the top. Room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom has a marble walk-in shower with a separate bathtub. Toilet is in separate room for privacy. Fireplace in room. Expresso machine in room. It was quiet. One block from Robinson St. One block from trolley/bus stop.

First class experience, great value, highly recommended

My husband and I stayed at this hotel twice, before and after our cruise. Our experience was so good that we wanted to stay here second time round. It is a very popular boutique hotel and priced just right; I couldn't book the second night online, so was really glad when they offered me a concellation at the same price I had paid online. The first time we had a boutique executive room (second level up), which was more like a mini suite, and very comfortable. It was certainly the largest room I had experienced in a first class hotel in a major city. On our return trip, we were upgraded to a larger suite with the hotel's compliments. This has a sitting room, separate bedroom, bathroom and toilet, as well as a sink by the bar. Both rooms were very lcean and modern, with free wifi and coffee and tea. Location is excellent, just minutes' walk away from the centre, and 15-20 mins walk to the harbour cruise terminal. In between our two stays , we were able to leave a suit case with the hotel. The staff were welcoming and cheerful. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the the skytrain line which goes direct to the international airport. We will certainly stay here again if we visit Vancouver.
