Check-in was easy and the front desk staff were very friendly. We had booked a premium room on the fifth floor that included a king-size bed, upgraded bath amenities, fridge/microwave, robe & slippers, and breakfast. The room was clean and well-appointed for our needs.
We ate most of our meals at the hotel restaurant, including adult children visiting us for three meals there, and enjoyed the food. The hotel is within a block to the seawall, so we enjoyed long morning walks during our stay. Restaurants, stores, beach, etc. are very close by, so we didn't even have to drive anywhere during our stay.
This was the third hotel stay of our 8-night Westcoast visit, and the most enjoyable one. On our last morning we were able to book an extra half a day's stay. It was a wonderful relief to be able to enjoy the entire day without having to wait around for several hours after the 12:00 noon check-out. Our flight didn't leave YVR until 10:30pm, so it would have been a long uncomfortable wait. The front desk staff were always very friendly and helpful adding to the enjoyment of our stay. We would definitely stay here again.
