This hotel has what appears to be a rare thing in central Vancouver: a two bedroom suite. The two bedroom suite, like the other suites in the hotel, has a full and well equipped kitchen as well. Added to that, the two bathrooms makes this as roomy as an apartment but with all the amenities of a hotel. The biggest bonus is the extremely large furnished balcony which overlooks the pool and there is another small balcony just off the dining area. It was perfect for entertaining friends and relatives during our stay.
The other amenities include clean, comfortable beds, marble jacuzzi bath, flat screen tv in each bedroom as well as one in the sitting area with HD satellite programming, complimentary wifi & high-speed internet, iPod docking station, electronic safe, iron and full-length ironing board, bathrobes, coffee machine, and fireplace. There’s even a washer and dryer. Large windows make the living area bright even on a cloudy day, although there is not much of a view. We were looking at a wall of the performing arts centre, the fifth floor pool area and other hotel room balconies.
My one complaint about the rooms was the lack of shelf space in the bathrooms.
The hotel offers the usual fitness centre, a number of machines crowded into a small room. As already mentioned, there’s a pool and hot tub. The restaurant, Q4 al Centro, offers very good Italian dishes.
The location on the border between downtown and Yaletown and away from the water can be good or less convenient depending on what you want to do. Despite the lack of a scenic view, the location, for us, worked well. We were without a vehicle but could go on longer walks to Stanley Park and Granville Island (via the Aquabus), and easily walk to many shops and restaurants. Our daughter walked two short blocks to get the bus to the university.
The price was very good compared to waterfront hotels. We plan to return when the weather is warmer so we can make use of the balcony and the pool.
