The hotel is in a good location, within a couple of hundred yards of the Canada Centre. A number 19 trolley bus takes you directly to Stanley park. Most of the downtown attractions and eateries are within easy walking distance. The hotel is popular – it was full during our stay.
The rooms are very small, no room to swing a cat. Ours had one double bed. Our window overlooked a concrete wall some 6 feet away, and virtually no natural light entered the room. The air conditioner was too noisy to use, however the room wasn’t too warm. The hotel has only one small lift, which also doubles a as a service lift for the porter, so it was very heavily used. Cleanliness was excellent.
The little man on reception wasn’t over friendly, but all the other staff were helpful.
I think the rates are expensive for what you get. We paid $160 CDN per night for our room, weekend in August 2005.
We had breakfast in the restaurant one day, which served nice food, although expensive. They don’t do a buffet.
