Well, I came back again as the first time was so good and I wondered if lightening could indeed strike twice. I came here for a few days of chill and shopping before I went on a sailing trip and I had my trusty little sidekick, Hibou the French Bulldog with me as well. The beds were even comfier than I remember and Tableau's offerings were just as spectacular (I went 4 times on a 2 night stay...)
I had to do a lot of work on this trip from the room before my evening client dinners and a few things that I had planned oh so carefully turned into some calls that went WAY overtime and I had places to be. I was really in a pinch to get my dog Hibou to doggy daycare in the West End before I had a big work dinner and I was stuck on a call. It was then I noticed the little card sitting on the desk that mentioned the Loden app where I could communicate with the front desk, the concierge and the London Car all from my iPhone...this all seemed way too good to be true.
While I was on a headset on my lap top, scrambling to get my shoes on and getting the harness on the dog, I was also on the app booking the London Car to drop us at the dog daycare. It let me know right away that the car was ready and downstairs for me, major score!! No more panic and we got to ride in the friendly and roomy car there and back without a hitch. Seeing as the app was so timely and easy for that jaunt, I also used it to successfully order room service for breakfast and tea and a snack for another marathon call.
The Loden never ceases to amaze me with it's friendliness and convenience and it truly is my home away from home while in Vancouver. Best staff, amazing food, incredible wine list and a feeling of genuine care that I've never felt at any other hotel.
