Howard Johnson Downtown Vancouver

Hey, if you don’t want to break the bank and you plan to spend more time outside than in, this is the hotel for you.

The first room I was allocated had a window – the “view” was a lightwell of maybe 1-2 meters and faced another window. I would have liked to know that in advance.
After a long flight I wanted to take a shower – however, the 2 trickles that came out of the showerhead did not merit the name “shower”. I called the front desk and asked for a different room. The gentleman told me he would call me right back. He did not. 30 minutes later I was at the front desk and was eventually allocated a new room.
All other personnell were very helpful and friendly.
The location of the hotel is great.

I live in the condo directly behind the hotel which overlooks it and wanted to provide some guidance for those that are staying. The back of the hotel in the alley is a popular place for drug users/dealers. As a result cars parked in the narrow parking lot between the hotel and the Scotia dance theater are often scoped out for valuables (usually very early in the morning). I have actually stopped one vehicular b&e in progress. I would recommend not parking in this alley if possible. If you do park here do NOT leave any valuables in plain sight in your vehicle.
