Quick work trip

Cute boutique hotel with a high level of comfort at a very reasonable cost. I would stay here again without hesitation. It's conveniently located near dozens of restaurants in the shopping area of Robson. Rooms are off the street, so it is quiet. They pride themselves on their artistic flair, which is present, but not overwhelming. The restaurant was very good, but carried touristy prices. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great value Great location for business

On a four day business trip to Vancouver. Needed a good hotel in a great location. Found one in the Listel Hotel, on Robson St. Room was clean and comfortable, location was perfect. The parking fee was outragious and disappointing. Internet was included in the hotel cost but repeating log-in every few hours was not fun. Cable TV was also included however a banner intrupted the viewing by the cable company stating "a cable box is required for viewing of this program" not great. All that said ...A Good Value in a great location.

Working downtown

The room, internet, breakfast, location and staff are all fantastic. Walking anywhere in town in possible. There is no need for a car. In fact, not having a car is better unless the $39 per day for parking is acceptable.

Great Hotel In the Heart of Downtown Vancouver

I only had a one night stay for business, but would have been happy to spend more. Staff was very friendly at check-in - which only took a few minutes. Modern amenities, and a seemingly socially conscious atmosphere. The bed was VERY comfortable and the room was more modern than others. It is close by other more expensive hotels such as Sutton Place & St. Regis - so - you get the benefit of the downtown location without having to pay downtown prices. It is within walking distance to virtually everything downtown - shopping, restaurants etc - and took less than 30 minutes to get there from the airport. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great value in Vancouver

Well run, well organized hotel in downtown Vancouver (Robson Street.) No views of the warter or mountains but ~5 minute walk to Coal Harbor. For the cost (~$100), this is a great value. Free wi fi, nice wines served at happy hour (free and not 2 buck chuck), and a few cookies in my car as I departed. That helps as the only hefty charge is the $35 for overnight parking. Nice art collection in the hotel and one of the better fitness centers for this type of hotel (downtown, boutique hotels usually have smallish fitness centers, not this one.)

Good Location

Perfect location in downtown Vancouver. Clean room and the King Size bed was very comfort. Only one I complained was they had no express check-out and I had no choice but to wait for 20 minutes for checking out.
