            This hotel is at an excellent location, where there is lots of causal dining, close to Stanley park, in an area where many people live, and in the vicinity of large grocery stores. As we were stranded due to air traffic problems, this was an excellent base for us, as the dining around the hotel was affordable and the hotel itself moderately priced. When I asked to get relocated from the room facing the busy street to a room on the backside, this was arranged quickly. The rooms and also the beds are very comfortable, and the bathroom small but sufficient.

            this hotel was excellent

            Reception staff were more then happy to help. Close location of bar / bistro an advantage and didn't hear much of the pub at night times

            House keeping entered our room despite a Do not disturb sign on door.. just a minor complaint in the schenme of things

            Very friendly and helpful staff at desk when we checked in. In fact, all staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Checkers had a nice breakfast, and better service than the Sylvia, where we also ate breakfast. Very nice location.

            Sink in room 424 didn't drain well, and the location, while beautiful, was very noisy (probably due to the fact that the weather was warm and folks were gathered outside to celebrate...into the wee hours!).

            Fabulous location with public transportation at the doorstep! A short walk to the beach and to neighbourhood cafes. Terrific food at Checkers. The staff were great and very helpful with figuring out our day plans and transportation. Our room was super and the bed was very comfortable. Sound proofing could be much better, but that is the only negative. We will definitely go back!
