My partner stayed here as he had just gotten out of the Lions Gate hospital from a mountain biking accident. As our travel insurance was supposed to organise our hotel and didn’t, we were left stranded in Vancouver with nowhere to stay for the next 2 weeks We had plenty of luggage and I was the only one capable of carting it around. After calling numerous booked out hotels I got through to Lord Stanley. What a saviour! They didn’t have a room available for the whole 2 weeks but after a long telephone conversation (Frustrating on their end I’m sure – sorry mate!) the receptionist was able to organise us 3 seperate rooms for the duration. We checked out of the first at 12pm and checked back in at 3pm and so on. During the checking out process they stored our luggage (including cold items in the fridge) and brought them up to the room again when it was clean. Each day when we arrived and left the hotel the receptionists would have a chat which was very comforting in the time which was very hard for us. The staff at this hotel are very accomodating. The service was impeccable! We stayed in Canada/ North America for 2.5 months and this was the most outstanding service by far. I can’t comment on the price as it was paid directly from our travel insurance company. We stayed in two rooms overlooking Alberti street and one overlooking the bay. Both were beautiful views! We had an excellent time. The elevators were fast, the breakfast was good but basic. We didn’t go down for breakfast much as its a first in first served until sold out situation and we weren’t getting up early.
The location was perfect! We couldn’t go far from the hotel due to my partners injuries but everything is in walking distance! Safeway, restaurants, the library, Stanley park etc are all extremely close. This is a great hotel in a beautiful street! 10/10. The only improvements I could see would be the size of the bedrooms and the appliances in the kitchen.
For the touristy rooms, I feel the study is a bit of a waste of space when the bedrooms are so small. This was a little hard when trying to get my partner into bed at night as one side was against the wall and the other side had very little room to move. I also feel that the utensils in the kitchen need to be improved.
Because we stayed for quite a long time we made plenty of meals. We had to keep buying the utensils/ pots/ pans etc from Safeway to cook the meals we wanted. Because we stayed so long the kitchen was very handy, and the main reason we called this place in the beginning over other hotels.
Otherwise everything about this apartment is great. All 3 rooms had a balcony and superb views. The location and friendly staff made this place amazing. If we ever get back to Vancouver we will stay here, no doubt about it.
