Location, location, location

This hotel allows you to park when you arrive and walk to shopping, dining, and stanley Park. The parking slots are small even for compact vehicles (and you pay for parking). Window mounted air conditioners were were noisy. The rooms were very clean and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again just for the location alone.

Breakfast special in the hotel was a great value and the Japanese restaurant Kadoya just around the corner from the hotel (up stairs) has a great lunch special, three years best in Vancouver.

Nice and Near the Park

The best thing about this hotel is the location - right across the street from Stanley Park and a short walk from lots of West End restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable (although fairly cramped, with two queen beds). The restaurant served mediocre food at higher than average prices. But the biggest down-side was the noisy neighbors. The rooms are not sound-proof at all and there were people yelling in the hallways in the middle of the night during both nights of our stay.

Awesome Location

The hotel is steps away from English Bay, close to Stanley Park & Denman St., where there are a lot of restaurants & shops. Also close to the pick up location for Hop on Hop off tours, as well as public transpo going to the Canada Line (the train to Vancouver Int'l Airport). Some amenities are a bit outdated (like their elevator). The staff is very helpful and polite.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If beach swimming is not for you but you would like to swim in a pool, Second Beach is just a short walk away (1.3 km, about 17 minutes) from English Bay. Head north towards Beach Ave, which turns into Stanley Park Dr. The pool will be on your left, overlooking the beach. Good place for people watching too (lots of Canadians in Vancouver are in really good shape!)

Weekend in Van

Accommodations were comfortable - not exceptional, but access to restaurants, views, and attractions was exceptional. Main outdoor attraction is Stanley Park (within walking distance), and many interesting dining options along Denman and Davie streets. A walk along the shoreline was also enjoyable providing the weather was cooperating.

Friendly and helpful staff

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience in this hotel. The staff was very helpful and gave us good advice in what to see and do in Vancouver. They were also friendly and polite. The hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk to Stanley Park and enjoy the views and activities there. We plan to stay in this hotel the next time we visit vancouver.

Location, Location, Location

The location was perfect. Close to shopping, restaurants,bars,beach,and Stanley Park. Onsite parking for a nominal cost was convenient to take car in and out daily. They gave us two-for-one coupons for Checkers Restaurant and Bayside Lounge which are attached to hotel. The food was delicious and the sunset view at Bayside cannot be beaten. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We were amazed to get such a good price on the room for a hotel in this location. We would definately recommend this hotel and we will stay there again.
