The hotel was average in terms of decor and appearance. Aside from aesthetics, the staff and guest room were satisfactory. Parking was an additional charge, and the lot did not appear to be secure nor under surveillance. For the price of the hotel, I would...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
