This hotel was easy to get to from public transportation. Check in was easy and quick. My room was on the 21st (of 30) floor and I had a great view of the city. The bed was comfortable. I loved that there was liquid soap at the bathroom sink, and shampoo and body wash in large bottles in the shower. The shower water was very hot. The only thing that I didn't love was that the elevators took a while to get up and down, but there were three of them, so I never waited more than 5 mins. The location of this hotel is great! There are a number of restaurants and shops very close by. I felt safe walking by myself, even at night. There are also a number of public transport stops within 10 mins walk. Overall, I'll definitely return to this hotel when I return to Vancouver!

We chose this hotel because it is on Robson Street in the centre of Vancouver, because the prices are very reasonable, and because it has a pool, an amenity my wife really appreciates. The choice was a good one. The service is great, the room we had was spacious, clean and well-appointed, the mattress was firm but very comfortable, and the view was excellent. What’s not to like? We’ll definitely be here again.

The hotel was a wonderful choice for our 5 night stay. We were looking for a downtown hotel with a reasonable price, good location, and view. We would definitely stay there again.

It exceeded our expectations. It was a perfect location especially in December. It’s in the midst of a lively shopping area with plenty of neighborhood restaurants. We loved the people watching and seeing the bustling holiday activity. Bus #5 runs right outside on Robson Street with frequent service toward Stanley Park and beaches in one direction and downtown and the cruise ship piers in the other. You can walk to downtown in 10 min or so, but it was nice to have the ride option at the end of the day. A London Drugs was a few doors down the street and was a convenient location to buy our DayPass Compass card which permitted us unlimited daily travel on the buses and other metro transit systems.

We had an upper floor room (26) with amazing views of the city and the water to the west (English Bay view room). I think all the rooms are on a corner (with balcony) which gives them windows on two walls allowing for sweeping views. The neighborhood to the west is still largely high rise free so we could see for miles. The room was very clean, the beds comfy, and all in good condition. Our bathroom was a little tight, but was modern with a walk-in shower (no tub). The room had a Nespresso machine, small refrig, but no microwave. We didn’t use the aircon or heat. The building seemed warm and we kept our door to the balcony open most of the day/nite for fresh air. We were high enough that the traffic noise didn’t bother us and it quieted down at night.

We ate breakfast at the café (Abode) in the lobby a couple mornings and thought the food was reasonable and quite good, but there are numerous bakeries and a Tim Hortons nearby. As mentioned, there are an unending option of eateries within walking distance. If you like Japanese food, this is the place for you. Ramen, tonkatsu (try Saku down the hill), sushi, you name it, it was everywhere. The neighborhood has a kind of “Japantown” atmosphere, but there are other Asian eateries, as well as more standard western fare.

Highly recommend. We paid about US$200/day (incl. taxes) for the room, but this was Dec. Probably significantly more during the summer cruise season.

We stayed for 4 nights as part of a city break to Vancouver.

Firstly, the location is excellent for the business district or shopping trips. It is about a 10 minute walk to the bay area and the central part of Vancouver.

There are plenty of places to eat in the local area, particularly if you like Oriental or Asian cuisine.

It is also conveniently located for Stanley Park, a short walk in the opposite direction to the City.

The hotel is welcoming, and took us about 30 minutes in a taxi from the airport, costing about $40 Canadian. For first time visitors to the city, it is well worth it until you find your bearings.

One of the few down sides to the hotel was the staffing of the reception desk. We had to wait virtually eveytime we had to use the reception service. The staff on duty were friendly and helpful but, it would have been good for the guest if more staff were on duty.

The rooms were modern and comfortable, with a massive bed, fridge and coffee machine. There is a breakfast option in an attached restaurant but, we did not use this, preferring to use Cora for breakfast, just up the road, we would highly recommend this.

There is a small gym and pool which was more than adequate for our needs.

Overall. we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this for a short stay in Vancouver. Just be aware that Robson Street is a busy shopping area, so can be noisy in the evenings, this did not affect our stay or ability to sleep.

Whilst rooms and location were good here, we were shocked at the total lack of any facilities and it felt much more like a motel rather than a hotel. No restaurant and no bar, no way of getting any food or drink unless you went out! Very inexperienced reception team felt quite amateur. They say lots of places nearby but we didn’t find many, we checked out early and went to a proper hotel with all facilities available.

We stayed for 3 nights. The staff were professional, accommodating, and extremely responsive. The room with amazing views of English Bay was large, clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect for us - you can find most things you need on Robson Street, and you are walking distance to the beautiful Stanley Park. We would definitely stay here again.

The lobby reception area and our room were very clean. The beds were comfortable and the room is spacious. Our room had everything we needed - fridge, TV, clean bathroom, coffee maker, safe. We used the pool and hot tub which was great! The parking fee is reasonable compared to other hotels and the location is unbeatable. We had a very enjoyable stay!

Staff, room, view all great. Would reserve this hotel again. However, the onsite restaurant has limited hours and our 1st meal there was not our best but the hotel resolved the issues by removing our charges. The hotel location is 1 of the other great things about staying-walking distance of Stanley Park, Gastown, Vancouver Aquarium, cruise port and more.

I had a 29th floor room and the views over the city, English Bay and the mountains were utterly spectacular, especially as I was blessed with good weather for the time I was there. The hotel is in a good location, with transport links within easy walking distance if you do not want to walk further. The room was very clean and comfortable and I would more than happily stay here again - the view alone is worth a return trip!

Hi Ray, We do not provide a free shuttle. A taxi to Canada Place (cruise terminal) is approximately $10 CAD one way. Canada Place is roughly 10 blocks away from the hotel. Thank you
