Convenient to the airport

Pros: Rooms are clean and comfortable
Cons: I know this is difficult but please enforce some kind of etiquette in the restaurant. Noisy and unsupervised children should not be allowed.
The Novotel is a good hotel and situated close to the shopping centre and DFO is a differentiator to the other airport hotels.

Pros: Larger size rooms
Location: N/A
The information supplied originally about the fare for the shuttle bus was incorrect but this may have changed since the original booking and more information would have been helpful. e.g. run on a regular 40 min schedule; is not a hotel shuttle bus

Room expensive and charged another $25 car parking

Cons: Could do with a light in the car park exit so you can see where to slide card into machine to open arm to enable exit from parking easier
They charged an additional $25 on top of an expensive room rate and then staff never entered onto the card so when we exited the car park card would not open the arm ,so had to reverse back into car park and return to reception to load parking on room card to enable our exit from the car park
