Everything Vancouver has to offer is right outside this comfortable and convenient hotel.

Great location and staff, noisy neighbourghood

Great location: 4 minutes walk to Granville/Waterfront SkyTrain station (30 minutes to airport for $2.75); minutes walk to everything: harbor embankment, Canada Place, 4 shopping centers, Cathedral, Library, Robson square (beatiful!), Gastown. Complimentary breakfasts are good. Staff is friendly. Cons: rooms are small, neighbourghood is noisy until 2 am (downtown + homeless shelter nearby). We had to sleep with earplugs. Advices: 1. Vancouver Art Gallery is a waste of time and money - better go to Art gallery on Howe (free). 2. Go to Van Dussen botanical garden first (SkyTrain station Oakridge & 41st)- your ticket will be valid for conservatory in Queen Elizabeth park.

perfect hotel, great exercise distance away from all main locations

loved the hotel, beds were comfy, staff was pleasant and helpful, the hotel is a 15-20 minute walk from shopping areas on granville and 15 minutes away from waterfront, quiet and peaceful at night - definitely staying here again if ever in Vancouver BC - for the younger crowd (around 25) ask the bell guy where to go, he was nice and knew the area well

Great location

This hotel is located within walking distance to just about everything. I was a bit uncomfortable about some of the surrounding area, but overall, the location was great. The rooms were small, but clean. The staff was great--more than willing to help with anything!

Average hotel

The hotel was clean although it has some funky smell in hallways and rooms. Breakfast is ok. Location is not so good. Lots of homeless people around.

Just an average hotel

I spent three nights in the hotel. PROS: -convenient location -staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful -room was clean. The furniture was simple and in good condition -the bathroom was in excelent condition -breakfast was fine CONS: -heat pump was a little bit noisy -little natural light in the room In summary, the hotel offers good value for the money but offers nothing out of the ordinary.
