    Individual guest reviews

    • Location was good for shops& and just a lovely place to stay for the 2 days we were in Vancouver for our first visit to your hometown. House keeping were great, the lobby staff were very freindly and the restauarant food and service, the front desk was very courteous and patient. The rooms were excellent and the pillows were amazing. The frette bathrobes and the towels were very nice, the breakfast was a little disappointing especially the $19.00 price, the concierge lady was wonderful.

      For a hotel of this value this is unacceptable and the shower head is too low for a six footer like me. The elevator is very slow and restaurant should be more family oriented.

    • The business centre was excellent and the location of the hotel was also great because was right in the middle of the city. Tidy and staff were helpfull, concierge was very helpful, the price discount available via the Internet was an added incentive. The sheets and down comforter were wonderful, the food in the restaurant was fantastic.

      Rooms kind of small and we NEVER waited more than 30 seconds for an elevator. Marios coffee two doors down is the best in Vancouver.

    • The location is perfect, the hotel itself is immaculate, and the rooms are quite large and comfortable, the staff is very friendly, courteous. Bathrooms are huge, pillow selection is good and diva restaurant has the best food in VCR. The pool was open super early made nice for my daughter and i are early risers.

      Extremely slow internet connection and sauna were a great way to wind up a busy day. Breakfast and parking were expensive.

    • Superb central location for shops, the art gallery is a few steps away and the restaurant is consistently one of the best in the country. The hotel has an air of luxury, the staff are very efficient, professional and friendly, room upgrade after first room not cleaned. We particularly liked having the bathrobes to wear to and from the pool, the food even better.

      The lobby is a little jarring always busy and the service is mediocre.

    • The location was excellent and the hotel was very good in all respects from the doorman. The in house restaurant "diva" was superb, staff were friendly and the concierge took great care of us. The room was very nice, pillows were super comfortable and oh, the towels were big and *good.

      Tv was old tube style cable selection seemed lower than basic no freezer compartment in " and the bath was not large and had attractive stone surfaces. The elevators were a bit slow and breakfast was overpirced and inconvenient.
