                    • Very good proximity to attractions and staff Informal Near beach. This hotel was excellent, service was fast and the room was very clean and stylish. The restaurant was prompt.

                      Between the bar downstairs and the bus stop outside and small bathroom.

                    • The location is great and the staff are eager to help and even is an older hotel I can see is well kept. Comfortable beds access to transport restaurants, the bar is good downstairs.

                      The room was noisy.

                    • The location is fabulous and buses right outside are handy too. The hotel is excellent value and good restaurants are nearby. The staff are very helpful, the rooms are nice and clean, the beds are very comfortable, the food is great.

                      A little bit noisy at night from the street outside, unfortunetly not worth the price and the woman at the front desk was very rude. Windows were a bit old, sheets were not made well.

                    • Excellent area for restaurants, we also used the Big Bus and stanley Park and the beach just steps away. S a comfortable hotel, friendly staff and the maids looked after us very well. The room was clean, the price was very reasonable and we had breakfast coupons from Travelzoo, some of the locals got up were pretty good.

                      Cost seemed somewhat high, hence poor rating for facilities and after a very long day biking all over town. Service very slow, small bathroom.

                    • The location was superb, a stop was just down the street and the restaurant in the hotel was very handy for breakfast. The cleaninghouse keepers were friendly and very accommodating and service was excellent. Room was very good and the Bar staff were always cheerful and ready to chat. The coffee was from blenz and was delicious, dinner was great and a large portion too.

                      Vancouver is a very expensive city, about a 10 minute walk to False Creek Ferries and your windows are ineffective at noise reduction.

                    • Location and friendly staff, near a trolley stop. Perfect for visiting Vancouver, good price too and only 5 minutes from Stanley Park, is a fantastic way to spend a morningday. Lots of great restaurants close by on English bay and the bed is wonderful.

                      The partial view is obstructed by the filthy windows and rooms at the front can be noisey as 's on a busy road. Poor, noisy air conditioning.

                    • The location is perfect and this hotel is at the end of lively Davie Street, near the water. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms been renovated in recent years and are very comfortable. Great juice bar opposite and individual restaurants close by.

                      Bad hotel and as 's on a busy street the bus service is great.

                      The rooms of the hotel are quite spacious and the bath is a bit dated and small.
