Room was clean and whilst tight we were able to fit 5 of us ok with the sofa bed and two queen beds. The Bathroom was very small though and quite dated. View from room was uninspiring over a back lane and demolished building. Bus...More
I travelled with my 75 year old dad and we enjoyed the hotel and the location and the view. Bathroom was a little tight but bed was awesome. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Great restaurants around and close by.

Thank You for the review of the property. I am glad you enjoy your annual trip to Vancouver for New Years Years Eve. Vancouver has so many great events for New Years including Fireworks in Coal Harbor. We look forward to seeing you again...More
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.
