A good travellers hotel

It is situated on English bay, close to the beaches and smart eateries. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the room was excellent. On the ground floor there is a lively chop-house style pub with aside range of local beers and tavern meals. I would stay there again if I were in Vancouver.

Good hotel - Noisy Rooms

Good hotel and well located. Apart from the very thin walls in the room, everything else was great. Staff were good and rooms were comfortable. No only problems were the noise from adjacent rooms. Over the three nights I was awoken by noisy conversations, televisions being on, couples getting "better acquainted", and phone conversations. Great hotel if you can deal with noise.
