Great location to explore Vancouver

Pros: Location
Cons: General face lift.
Location: Beach, fantastic park, wide range of restaurants
We were slightly hesitant when we booked here as there were a wide range of reviews, some not very complimentary. We stayed a week and were pleased we did. The location is superb, backing on to Stanley Park - considered one of the best parks in the world. The hotel is two minutes from the beach, and the street it is on is awash with restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines. Our room was large and quite well appointed. The furniture was a little tired but OK. The fittings in the bathroom were very tired, especially the mirror and cupboard over the basin, but there were plenty of clean, large towels. The kitchen, which we used quite a lot, also was in need of a face lift, together with the crockery some of which was chipped. However, it was well equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, stove and coffee machine. There was an unlimited supply of coffee grounds. All in all, given the cost in a major world city, we thought it was good value. One drawback is that there is a high rise apartment block being built outside the room we had. Noise was not a problem, but if we go again we will ask for a room on the other side as the apartment ,when finished, will look right into the bedrooms.

Good Location

Pros: Location and helpful staff.
Cons: Air conditioning and cleanliness.
Hotel is a old one but the location is great. Close to shops, Restaurant and Bus.We had water views from our 4th floor apartment which included a seperate kitchen with Oven, Microwave, fridge, coffeemaker, electric jug and utensils. Traffic noise could be heard and as we had the room right next to the elevator it was very noisy when people used it. Staff were friendly and helpful. We did not need to use the air conditioning which was like a portable one that you had to put the vent out through the window. (a bit poor). However, the comfort of the room was good and the price was right, especially for Vancouver City.
