The location is amazing , cant beat being steps from English bay, stanley park and a fantastic assortment of food and cafe options. My only complaint would be some of the street noise which is in no way fault of the property being in a busy area but if youre sensitive to noise then that may be something to consider while booking.

I needed to stay a night in Vancouver after having surgery due to the possibility of complications. I was given an exceptionally early checkin as I was needing my room by 11am and the staff made sure this could happen. They made the check-in process as simple as possible and allowed my Mom to sign the papers as I was not coherent. Our room was very clean and updated. I give this hotel a solid 5.
