Beautiful location in the arts district surrounded

Posted 18-Jan-2016
Have been 7-8 times in the last 10 years. Long-time staff are AMAZING but one new staffer at the desk had a chill factor that I could have done without. As always, the rooms are impeccably tended to and the check-in/check-out was easy. Adjacent park with walking paths are convenient for walking the dog. Park once and enjoy everything on the island without fussing around. Tons of recreational, entertainment, and shopping opportunities within an easy stroll. Love the public market and craft shops, bookstore, wine merchant, theatre sports, boat rentals, live musicians busking on the street, etc. such a quiet property for one that has so much at hand. It's the geography which allows for that.

Travelling with an infant

Posted 5-Jan-2016
Everything was fantastic! The only trouble we had was getting our infant playpen. I had called prior to coming to confirm would have one in the room and it was not there when we arrived. We had to call three times to get it up to our room which was inconvenient considering we had to get baby to sleep. Otherwise happy.

Accessibility

Pros: High count sheets, thick fluffy towels, toiletries. The staff was outstanding from the housekeeper to front desk to wait staff.
Cons: Nothing. Staff immediately corrected a room issue.
Location: see experience
Being on Granville Island, you can walk to public market, theatre, boutique shops. It was fascinating to watch the glass blowers at work. There is a really unique display made by the artists and artisans of the area outside the Ocean Cement Plant...it is a system of pulleys and balls and trucks and gadgets that is fascinating for both adults and children to watch. The public market has gorgeous displays of fruit, flowers, meat, pastries of all kinds and crafts as well as great fish and chips. You can take the water taxi to the other side of False Creek and walk uptown to the city center. Able to take taxi to Christ Church Cathedral which is an active historical church and very much enjoyed Christmas Eve service. The meal service at the hotel was outstanding. Excellent presentation. Good flavors.

This is a lovely boutique hotel with contemporary rooms and luxurious decor. Although close to the busy market shops and galleries of Granville Island, the hotel is not at all noisy. We enjoyed the harbour views from the rooms and Dockside restaurant., and will continue to choose this hotel when we visit Vancouver.

Nice hotel in a waterfront location

Very pleasant boutique hotel with waterfront location in the Granville Island neighborhood. Lots of dining options and interesting shops nearby and good walking along the waterfront. Close to public transit.

Nice hotel but view looked directly at air shaft

Posted 4-Dec-2015
Pros: Proximity to granville attractions
Nice hotel but the window in my room looked directly into the HVAC air shaft. It was an inexpensive room booked at the last minute, but mildly disappointing.
