We had a lead in room. Very small room but perfect for a night stay. Solid 3 star hotel. Harder bed. Clean.
Upgrade if you need a bigger room for sure.
Great location, close to skytrain, walk to BC place, Rogers arena and Yaletown.
Would stay again but book King room.
Staff were fabulous!
I stayed here with my husband and son in a room with two queen beds. The room was large and clean and had a great view, but we really had to try hard to find somewhere to charge our phones and iPads. We were able to walk all over the city without any problems, and having the stadium so close made the hotel easy to find. The neighborhood had lots of restaurants, a grocery store, and a 7-11, so you’re set as far as that goes.
On one of the nights we stayed, my son ever-so-graciously threw up at 3 a.m on the floor and bed, and the staff was good about helping us take care of it. It was a tough day for us, and the housekeeping person for our room couldn’t have been kinder and more gracious. She was like that the entire time we were there.
Room service could not have been worse. I wanted to order something for my son, but no one answered the phone. I called the front desk. The guy there transferred me to room service, but I let the phone ring more than 30 times and no one answered then, either. I gave up.
There were also seemingly interminable waits any time I went to the front desk. It was usually manned by a single person, which was clearly not enough staff. I believe they overcharged me by about $40, but I figured I’d take care of it from home rather than cause a logjam at the front desk.
All in all, I was pleased with the hotel. We were right where we wanted to be, and the kindness of the housekeeping staff really made up for the mediocre front desk and MIA room service staff.
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.
