Stayed in hotel for a week in March 2012 and from check in to check out we did not find 1 thing to fault in here.
Reception staff were always nice & cheerful & helpful...well done.Check in & check out were fast and efficient.
Stayed in room 205 which is facing the back of hotel, some views of mountains to north and very quiet room.Room had 2 double beds, flat screen tv, microwave, coffee maker, iron & ironing board, fridge,i-pod dock,ample supply of tea bags & coffee and plenty of wardrobe/drawer space for clothes.Bed linen changed on request just by leaving a card on bed.
Bathroom was nice & clean , plenty of towels and hot water..
Just around corner from hotel on Denamn St you will find the Denman Mall which has a discount supermaket called "No Frills" (I think that was the name) where you can get all the basics for survival in your hotel room ie bread, butter, milk etc.
Hotel is located across road from English Bay beach which leads into Stanley Park where you will always find people walking, cycling, rollerblading and just generally enjoying themselves.
Hotel is on Davie St which is a nice stroll 1 mile eastwards to downtown. Just outside of hotel you can also get a bus to take you downtown.
Plenty of bars,liquer stores,restaurants and fastfood outlets in general area of Hotel.
Take a walk east on Davie St until you come to Granville St, turn right here and over bridge to Granville Island ,where after spending some time exploring the markets with their massive selection of mouthwatering foods, you can catch a ferry back towards English Bay beach.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel while we were visiting our son in Vancouver and will definetly be staying here again when we return soon.
