Our Room did have an A/C unit in the room which kept the room a nice temp. The location was great and parking was secure across the street in a garage. The staff was nice and helpful. The hotel was great but I did find Vancouver to be dirty. Trash on the sidewalks and streets. Some areas smelled of urine…
The Steam Clock in Gastown is a must see on the hour. It plays the Westminster Quarters and blows smoke on the hour. Cool Show.
First of all, this is a very small, boutique-type hotel. My guess is, it’s privately owned. Second, the staff is WONDERFUL. They were all so helpful and kind. The place looks as though it’s been fairly recently renovated. The original building is very old… probably historic.
When we arrived, the front desk clerk immediately informed us that there had been no A/C for a week. Apparently, they were having work done on it, but they didn’t anticipate having it for yet another week. They offered us a 20% discount on an already excellent rate if we’d go ahead and stay. Since it was only one night, we accepted.
Our room was on the second floor and was quite adequate. There was a very nice computerized safe for our belongings and fortunately, we were able to open the windows. Everything was clean as a whistle, aside from one small patch on the bathroom ceiling that looked as though there had been a leak and it was starting to mold.
Sadly, this hotel appears to be rather near a questionable part of town. Also, there is a bar attached to it. Because we had to open the windows, it took us awhile to get to sleep, since it was a Friday night and people were partying two stories below. We were really tired, and eventually got to sleep, despite a lot of outside city noise that went on all night long. The beds were very nice.
Because I booked through Orbitz, the front desk staff said they’d have to contact Orbitz for my 20% off refund. I have to say in the defense of the hotel that our refund happened within two or three days after our stay. I was really impressed with their integrity.
If I ever returned to Vancouver for a short stay, I would consider this hotel again. Hopefully, their A/C would be fixed!
