Don't stay (who'z reviewing this place?)

I based my selection of this hotel on the good reviews of the hotel but was very disappointed. In reality, I lost a good part of my vacation and money. The 2 good points of the hotel are its staff and location. The BIG problem of the hotel is the physical condition of the place. The staff is doing what it can but the place is falling apart. Our initial reaction was the place was of shock and requested if we could be assigned another room if possible, which the staff said they would do. The hallway to the room smelled. The reviews had said that the room was clean, which based on what we saw, it was hard to imagine how that could have been possible. The carpet was stained, the lamps bent and insufficient, the arrangement haphazard with old furniture, wall paper and paint. We dreaded the approaching breakfast the next as it was in the basement. BUT, we were pleasantly surprised that it was excellent, efficient and consistent during our stay. Also, the next day, we moved to another room and the staff moved our bigger bags. The hallway again smelled, but this time of different, odors. The room was marginally better but had similar haphazard arrangement with old furniture. One area in the washroom had a particular smell which I could not place till the next day when it clogged. As I had no intention of using the plunger on my vacation, I am glad the hotel staff took care of it. I cannot suggest, even mildly, packing a plunger to anyone planning a vacation. I did not bother asking for a transfer to another Ramada facility as the rating for the other facility was even lower.

The hotel was great - bed exceptionally comfortable - but no good parking - our car was broken into - window smashed etc. Car was in a parking garage across the street - might have been better if used their valet parking - our car was a target - had lots of stuff in it.

Good for the Price

I only needed a place to sleep (great bed) and free breakfast (serviceable). 10-minute walk to the convention center. If you want more or are easily turned off by less than mint condition bathrooms, look elsewhere. There's a great used bookstore next-door, too!

Great location and staff, noisy neighbourghood

Great location: 4 minutes walk to Granville/Waterfront SkyTrain station (30 minutes to airport for $2.75); minutes walk to everything: harbor embankment, Canada Place, 4 shopping centers, Cathedral, Library, Robson square (beatiful!), Gastown. Complimentary breakfasts are good. Staff is friendly. Cons: rooms are small, neighbourghood is noisy until 2 am (downtown + homeless shelter nearby). We had to sleep with earplugs. Advices: 1. Vancouver Art Gallery is a waste of time and money - better go to Art gallery on Howe (free). 2. Go to Van Dussen botanical garden first (SkyTrain station Oakridge & 41st)- your ticket will be valid for conservatory in Queen Elizabeth park.

Great place to stay.

The outside is not much to look at. The inside is great. The room was small but who cares? The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nice Continental Breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was good. Would stay there again in a heart beat.
