Fine wood floors are different but fine. Toilet valve leak kept that running was a little annoying. Price was right
I booked this hotel because of it's location to the event I was attending and the price. I quickly realized why the price was so reasonable. There is no signage to let you know that you have to park on the street (for a maximum of 15 minutes) to check in so I drove around a few times and ended up in a dark alley and asking the gentlemen out having a smoke how the heck I got in to the hotel. The biggest disappointment was being charged $20/day for parking in a garage that was 3 blocks away and located in another hotel. The room itself was for the most part clean. The bathroom was all tile and could have used a little attention. The bathroom was large and small at the same time. The sink was tiny and low and the toilet is crammed in against the wall quite tightly. The tub/shower was large though and the water pressure was fine. The beds - ugh, the beds. I was in a 2 queen bedroom as I was supposed to be sharing with someone. Thankfully, they didn't come because 1 of the beds was completely useless. I started in that bed and it was so uncomfortable, I got up after a couple hours and tried the other bed. The other bed was better but not great. Unfortunately, the other bed was in the hot part of the room with no a/c and the a/c didn't seem to have much effect in the room anyway. It was quite hot. I was going to leave after 1 night but decided to stick it out. The price was what I was looking for and I just didn't bother trying to access my car during my stay.
Nice hotel, that is clean and a great location. A short walk to the Cruise ship Port
We stayed in room 802--it was tiny, cramped, and had an awkward layout: one side of the bed did not have a night stand and the outlets were not easily accessible. The paint above the air conditioner was peeling and the wall paper appeared to date back to the 80's. The bathroom was EXTREMELY small--the shower was the size of an old-fashioned telephone booth with nowhere to place one's toiletries; the towels were thin and worn--some of them even had holes in them! Lastly, the parking situation was deplorable: the lot was inconveniently located 2 blocks from the hotel and if one doesn't make the 11pm curfew before the parking lot closes, one must get the key fob from the front desk to open the parking lot gate!
Sorry, room was in poor shape, Queen bed was a full, A/C was very loud. Staff was fine
after a six day cruise i checked into the hotel at 10am. went right to bed and slept for hours! even with the elevator right across the hall. better than any other place i have stayed and tried to nap during the day.
This hotel was old and the bed was not very comfortable. It wasn't in great condition and I think it was way overpriced for the condition that it's in currently. It was a convenient walk from the Waterfront station on the Canada Line and an easy walk to the cruise ship port.
I have stayed here twice and both times were very pleasant and also convenient. I will be staying here again.
Giving only 3 stars for overall rating bacause the heating units are really one and noisy.
probably the worst room d/t online 3rd party reservation(right outside the DAYS INN sign but 2 fans going and blackout curtains took care of problem. Never in room but to sleep and shower. Fabulous LOCATION!!!
Our stay was great the staff answered our questions and was helpful and courteous - very good customer service. We enjoyed the greater part of two days in Vancouver after our cruise to Alaska. We would stay at Days Inn again if opportunity arose. We loved being so close to the harbor. Thank you!
This is an awesome location for me with affordable price. Couple of blocks away for my business trip location.
I was in Vancouver BC to attend an engrossing technical conference for6 days *SIGGRAPH), and I did not need much more than a pleasant simple clean place nearby in a safe area, a place to sleep well at night and prepare well for the next day. This charming little 100 year -old 8-story hotel, recently updated, nicely maintained, staffed with exceptionally attentive, astute and courteous people, was absolutely perfect for me, traveling alone. My room was sensibly compact and reminded me of favorite old European hotel modernizations. Room sizes in older hotels were smaller for very good reasons (heating, cooling, airflow, water pumping and plumbing costs before availability of cheap electrical power) offered elegant pleasing interiors without gigantic sizes, kept walking distances short without elevators (this hotel has both: modern elevator AND a central fast staircase, which I preferred even for my 7th floor room). Even now, the hotel keeps rooms individually cooled/heated (giving you complete control: modern quiet but powerful thru-wall air handling unit) , and hallways unconditioned (thus a bit hot in summer due to good insulation, many incandescent lights and low airflow: CFL replacements might cool the halls and would cut electrical costs). Charming understated room decoration and design did not mistake size for comfort: I had everything I wanted and needed thoughtfully available within a few steps, and my needs have never included a tiled echoing bathroom large enough to host an impromptu racquetball tournament with 5 neighbors ( as in my most recent "modern luxury" hotel stay, with towel rods> 5 meters from the shower door!). While notably smaller than most 'modern' hotel rooms, it was cosy rather than cramped for me, and certainly enough for any solo traveler or couple that travels lightly. A good queen-sized bed, a desk; small refridgerator, ready-to-use tea / coffeemaker, modest closet with a safe, chest of drawers, comfortable chairs, large wall mounted flatscreen TV, free and quite speedy wireless internet service everywhere, small and but complete bathroom with shower, sink, mirror and toilet (no bathtub). Well,ok, the bathroom needed more counterspace, or perhaps a shelf near the wasbasin for my toothbrush, comb, sunscreen cream, dental floss, mouthwash; etc., but the early 1900's floorplan probably lacked private bathrooms--remodelers made very good use of the small space available. The hotel is only a few short blocks from the convention center, has a nice little restaurant in the basement good for a tasty and filling breakfast, is surrounded by skyscrapers and by some of the nicest parts of downtown Vancouver. I walked 3 blocks to the Granville train station that took me to and from the airport, and to almost anywhere else. The hotel is'just right' for me: elegant, charmingly tasteful and upscale, but without pointless luxury and showy wastefulness. Wonderful location, wonderful staff, and bargain priced, especially considering the superb service, location, design and finishing touches.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient. The room was clean. Just a minor house keeping point is that one day, the house keepers forgot to leave coffee cups in our room.
While the hotel is in a great location, the standard room has poor ancient lighting so feels constrained (and my 4th floor room's window opened to a concrete building just a few feet away). The rooms also comes with the traditional AC/heater unit by the window so it's noisy and unfortunately ours didn't work. The hotel staff were great overall and offered to credit us for the trouble with the AC but unfortunately couldn't without going through this travel site first. That's a hassle so I'd recommend booking directly with the hotel in the future. Overall, if you're looking for a great location and good value and won't be in your room except to sleep (i.e., you don't mind a basic/anything-but-high-end room), it's a good choice.
Its in the middle of downtown.bus station in front of the hotel.walking distance to the waterfront, lookout, Restaurants, shopping...
If you are looking for a hotel close to the Convention Center this hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the Convention Centre. It's also a short walk from the Canada Line, the subway line that comes directly from the Airport.
Convenient location to all food points and near by attractions. The room was clean and staff where very friendly.
Great budget hotel. A couple of blocks from the convention center and water front and an easy walk. Room was quiet and comfortable.
Stayed here for a last minute one night stay. They didn't have a working order elevator which was awful walking up to the 7th floor. But overall I was happy with our last minute booking.
