Stayed in a Studio suite.
Only stayed one night. Room was clean and fresh and everything worked. Lovely view of the Straight of Georgia. Smooth arrival and departure. Stayed in a Studio Suite ,309A. Bit of a treasure hunt finding the entrance but we were given a map,along with our keys on arrival. Nice spot.
