Room is extremely small, dirty and even on the desk you don’t have space to put a notebook there. Bathroom is dirty as well with hairs on the floor, even after asking the front desk to remove it, they were still there, so disgusting you cannot imagine. Don’t ever go there, you will get something much better in this price range.
Stayed here for 7 nights recently whilst visiting Vancouver. This is an extremely busy city centre hotel, Whilst it’s not the prettiest to look at don’t be put off by that. It’s within a 5 minute walk of the Skytrain station at Vancouver City Centre and Pacific Mall and all that the city centre has to offer. Its exceptionally clean and I had the benefit of a very quiet room at the rear of the hotel 542. On a city break all one needs is a quiet clean and comfortable room to return to after a long day out. The pool and hot pool were most welcome every morning and was a wonderful bonus for such a city centre location.
If it were possible to rate this hotel 0, I would. The room I had was in dreadful condition. The furniture was broken, the TV did not work and the bed had a huge human size hole in it. The lights did not work, and before you ask I did make sure they were plugged in. That is when I discovered the uncovered electrical junction box with its lose wires rubbing on the box spring. The staff, particularly the woman who answered the phone for housekeeping and the front desk staff were the rudest I have ever encountered in all my travels. This morning when I checked out the man on the front desk asked me how my stay was and when I tried to tell him about the condition of my room, his response was “what did you expect? You get what you pay for. Next time if you want a better room, pay more”.
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.
