          good value, very friendly and most helpful staff

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          The price was ok and the room was clean. The staff was friendly all the time.

          Two times I asked for the 10 dollars breakfast in the cafe next door and the staff told me that they do not know about that but after insisting they agree to give me a voucher for that.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Clean, great location, fair prices, friendly staff.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Room was very clean; good location

          Room was not exactly "Deluxe room" as stated in description; it was only a regular king room

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The people at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The shuttle was handy and the housekeepers were nice enough to even fold my daughters clothes.

          Would be nice to have a pool and breakfast. You may be able to set up a room service connection with White Spot next door. Could be beneficial to both buisnesses.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The night guy gave us our room early (drove allnight and needed it badly! As well the Bed was fantastic. So much better than the usual hotel beds/linens....

          We have a large truck so the parkade was a bit "short"... But other than that, we had a great time.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Parked the car in the secure hotel under ground parking and took close by Sea Bus and Sky Train when needed.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We loved the cleanliness, size of the room, its appointments, and most of all the attentiveness and quality of the staff. We would recommend this hotel with confidence.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The location to Granville Island and Yaletown was very good. But it is out of the way for many of the other attractions-long walks.

        • Single
          9.2

          Close to downtown and to the vcc where the iciam conference took place

        • Couple
          9.6

          Breakfast arrangements were complex and unclear at times. Staff were not even fully aware of them.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The staff was very helpfull. The hotel offer free shuttle and bike rent service which was very nice to have

          The location is not the greatest. It is close to almost everything, but it is surroinded by homeless and drunk people, especialy at night

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Location,roof top table,microwave,fridge,coffee maker,laundry room,TV.very clean,comforable,convenien go shoping,good room service,value money,good parking & secure.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Convenient location. Reasonable price for a hotel in a major city. Good shuttle service, and on bus route downtown.

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          In the center.

          Breakfast was 10 doller.If you chose one of them.You have to play extra for a cup of coffee and a glas of juice. That is not right.Every breakfast must be incuded with coffee and juice.
