Location and comfort will bring us back.We were offered an upgrade at check-in because of the loyalty membership and were given that rate when we stayed an extra night. I counted a comfortable room and I received it.

This was a very clean hotel. Nice location right by the water. Not far from the action downtown at all. Parking isn't free but cheaper than some other hotels downtown. Rooms are lovely, clean, well kept.

We just enjoyed our second visit to this well located, classic hotel right near English Bay. This time, we escaped the rest of the family gathered for Christmas to have a quiet night at a reliably nice, well appointed hotel. We weren't disappointed. The king beds are so comfortable and huge it's like sleeping on a cloud. We also really...

Also there was a group partying in the hallway at 3 in the morning on New Years Day (they didn't even stay in their room). They moved back to their room when we asked them but...

Hello Thank You for the review of our property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I do apologize about the noise that kept you up at night. The hotel has security till 4am and should have been more proactive in the situation. We hope you will stay with us again on your next trip to Vancouver.

We spent three weeks in Vancouver in total and chose this hotel because it was just down the road from where our son lived. We stayed at this hotel at three different times going on trips in between.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
