A very nice hotel, spacious and comfortable rooms, very comfy bed. The main problem for us was no frig’ in the room. Some rooms did have a frig’ but ours did not. Unfortunate as my wife has medication which needs to be kept cold. Asked at reception they said no available frig so we had to leave the meds in their kitchen frig and go down and up every day to fetch it. Apart from that we had no complaints other than a very long wait to get into our room. We were told it would be available by 2.00pm but we sat in the lobby until well after 4.00pm before we could get into our room. Location is great being just around the corner from Robson Street and it’s many eateries, and only a few minutes walk to Gastown. Would stay there again but would make sure we had a frig’ when booking
The only thing this hotel had going for it was it’s central location. We arrived with a prepaid booking around lunchtime but they could not give us a room yet so we stored our bags and walked the city for several hours, we came back at 3pm, and finally we got a room. The room was basic, but clean enough. We stayed here 3 nights, so it wasn’t just 1 uncomfortable night. The staff couldn’t care less about you, The bed was not very comfortable, the room noisy, the lifts unbelievably slow, the towels scratchy and the cleaning daily of rooms extremely slow.
We only stayed for two nights here and it wasn’t too bad. The room was small but still O.K., wifi worked – and the hotel is well positioned in a busy city centre, yet it is still quite. The large bed was O.K., bathroom clean and the tea/coffe machine worked. The coffee was terrible – but this seems to be typical of North America, no matter where you go.The best thing about this hotel is its location. Plenty of eating places nearby, lots of shops, even an IGA supermarket.
Located on Georgia across the Street from Rogers Arena and BC Place which is where where the Vancouver Canucks, BC Lions and Vancouver Whitecaps all play.
Hotel amenities include spacious guestrooms, an indoor pool, free high-speed internet, business centre, fitness centre, Moxie’s Grill & Bar, and Shark Club Bar & Grill.
