    The staff was friendly, helpful and provided more pertinent information than what was asked. The close proximity to Granville Island and the Seaside walk/bicycle way to Stanley Park was convenient, yet still a downtown location. The extended use of the loaner bicycles to go to Stanley Park was great. The shuttle service to local attractions is a plus and hotel is 10 minutes walk to the Sky Train for convenient airport travel.

    Free breakfast was great. Location was pretty good if you don't mind walking. They messed up my room reservation - instead of 2 beds I got a King - so gave me free parking in return.

    The elevator was awful. Took forever and had to use it because there were no stairs to underground parking. Could use more front desk staff too.

    Note: two stays -- 9 july, & 17, 18 july 2011. 1. Women at reception -- Denise and Sarah were very welcoming and helpful. 2. good breakfast in hotel included 3. free wifi in rooms and in lobby where one could print boarding passes 4. shuttle which took us to port then, on departure, to the skytrain 5. good security measures

    The room was a bit small but this would not prevent us from booking again.

    Very good price for a hotel in central downtown and with breakfast included. In addition to being at a good location that reaches the most places of interest in walking distance, the hotel also provides free shuttle bus service to all places in the city of Vancouver (1 zone). Staffs are very friendly and helpful.
