Free parking although they are a little tight. Lots of very good restaurants within walking distance. A 2 min walk to the Kingsgate mall. We have actually walked to Science World and to see Cirque once. A very short cab ride to see the Canucks or BC Lions as they are virtually next door.
Our two negatives at this hotel were the scruffy-looking evening receptionist and the fact that our room wasn’t serviced on the first day (we just received a shrug when we mentioned it at reception). We later found a form buried in a drawer which we should apparently have handed in, stating our servicing requirements but next time we just hung the sign on the door requesting it.
Apart from that though, we had a nice large room with comfortable bed and chairs and a peaceful night’s sleep. We were at the time able to enjoy the good choice on the breakfast bar. The staff were cheerful and attentive, as were the daytime receptionists.
Its location could be a disadvantage to someone without a car, as we were, as it involves a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest metro station (although there is also a nearby bus route). There is, however, a convenient shopping mall with supermarkets across the road and several restaurants, although we didn’t feel the need to explore these as the Italian one next door does delicious food.
The laid-back, air-conditioned rooms come with free WiFi, TVs and coffeemakers; some add mountain views and/or minifridges and microwaves
Complimentary full breakfast is provided, as is underground parking.
