Went there on business, booked via hotel with special conference price of 99$. Pick up from airport was a breeze, didn't wait five minutes and the shuttle was there...good timing! The check in was friendly and courteous and was provided with a luxurious room with free wifi (normally payed), a nice king bed, LCD TV and a good view of the airport and nearby river. The bathroom was big, with separate bath tub and shower stall. The gym was nicely appointed with the usual aerobic machines (bikes, ellipticals, etc..), but limited to free weights for other forms of training. The pool was smallish. The gym and pool where rather awkward to get too, given you accessed it from the 5th floor, went down to the 4th, then via a long corridor...not handicap friendly, for sure.
The downside was the restaurant, which is small, and was overwhelmed on the day I ordered the overpriced eggs Benedict...40 minutes wait! I went to a nearby BK the next 2 morning, given they had a 3$ breakfast special.
Also, the elevators were problematic. Only 2 elevators, and there seemed to be problems with one of them, that kept getting stuck at certain floors.
The hotel is nearby two big Asian malls, so loads of restaurant choice in walking distance. The hotel is also a 10 minutes walk to 2 skytrain stations (its in between Bridgeport and Aberdeen on the Canada Line), and its 20 minutes to DT Vancouver. Nice!
I actually would come back here, if the price is right!
