            This hotel is at an excellent location, where there is lots of causal dining, close to Stanley park, in an area where many people live, and in the vicinity of large grocery stores. As we were stranded due to air traffic problems, this was an excellent base for us, as the dining around the hotel was affordable and the hotel itself moderately priced. When I asked to get relocated from the room facing the busy street to a room on the backside, this was arranged quickly. The rooms and also the beds are very comfortable, and the bathroom small but sufficient.

            this hotel was excellent

          • Couple
            8.2

            Reception staff were more then happy to help. Close location of bar / bistro an advantage and didn't hear much of the pub at night times

            House keeping entered our room despite a Do not disturb sign on door.. just a minor complaint in the schenme of things

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Location, room with a view.

            A little pricey ($200 per night).

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            I liked the location,comffortable beds, very effficient cleaning staff, laundry facilities and very helpful desk staff.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Very comfortable, with good facilities & with a great location if you want to avoid the city downtown area

          • Single
            9.6

            Location is perfect for the beach and sun sets. Easy walk to good restaurants. Very clean room with nice view of the bay from my window. Would stay with my family next time I visit Vancouver.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            For first visit to Vancouver, location was excellent beside local transport and city tour stop.

            Charge for car parking

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Very friendly and helpful staff at desk when we checked in. In fact, all staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Checkers had a nice breakfast, and better service than the Sylvia, where we also ate breakfast. Very nice location.

            Sink in room 424 didn't drain well, and the location, while beautiful, was very noisy (probably due to the fact that the weather was warm and folks were gathered outside to celebrate...into the wee hours!).

          • Single
            10.0

            All staff were very helpful and friendly. Outstanding cleaning staff. Great location, accessible to public transportation, even the the bus drivers deserve a kudos for being so helpful. The best vacation ever!!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Locality, Comfort, service this waqs a return stay after 10 years and it is better again

            AC in room was noisy and very old, probably has little use

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location was excellent close to bay with excellent dining locations close by.

            Small bathrooms and some service problems at check in.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Close to both English Bay and to Stanley Park. Staff recommended "Fun Bus Tours Vancouver" for a city tour and they were excellant !

          • Couple
            10.0

            Fabulous location with public transportation at the doorstep! A short walk to the beach and to neighbourhood cafes. Terrific food at Checkers. The staff were great and very helpful with figuring out our day plans and transportation. Our room was super and the bed was very comfortable. Sound proofing could be much better, but that is the only negative. We will definitely go back!

          • Older travelers
            3.2

            I did not like the hotel. It was much to expensive for the value of the facilities.

            Quality of room, size of room, price of room, really everything

            Friendlt staff, good restaurant,clean comfortable rooms

            Rooms overlooking main street can be affected by street noise, trams etc but quitens off during night.
