The free airport shuttle runs every half hour from Vancouver Airport which is great after a long flight as you don’t have to arrange your own transport.
Reception were helpful throughout and eased me through checking in and out. The room had two double beds, a fridge, microwave, television and all the other essentials. The shower was disappointing as you had to adjust the two taps which never stayed the same temperature for long. Add to that the shower head was too low for me (anyone over 5’9 may as well have a bath as a shower is uncomfortable). The bathroom in general was smaller than I would have liked for the size of the room. Free wireless internet is available in the room and was easy to set up and reliable (just key in your room number the first time you log on).
A buffet breakfast was included in the room price and you could choose anything from sausages and scrambled egg to oats, cereal or toast. I enjoyed this as it kept me going through the day. Naturally, tea, coffee, etc was available.
The exercise room looked like it was still being renovated but was still open to guests. There was a handful of equipment to choose from like a treadmill, bike and some light weights. Probably not the best place if you’re used to a proper gym. It is hidden away past the breakfast area so was very quiet. It still needs more work done to it.
Although being a 10 minute shuttle ride from the airport, it wasn’t noisy and with it taking only 20 minutes to get downtown by Skytrain from nearby Bridgeport station (5 – 10 minute walk), it’s a cheaper alternative to downtown. Also, Lansdowne Mall and Richmond Mall are a few Skytrain stops south, which came in handy for shopping, eating, etc. Vancouver is so good that I would visit again and I would stay in this hotel to do it. Despite the very minor faults, it makes a good base to explore Vancouver from.
