After travelling for 5 hours with 2 small children and a teenager, I was so relieved to be greeted by extremely friendly, humorous, and kind staff who wanted to know all about our travels so far. Parking was a breeze, the room was very spacious (we stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath suite) and very clean! I’m no princess, but I do get grossed out at dirty kitchens and bathrooms and I was so happy to see everything so clean!! My thoughts when first walking through the door to our room were “oh my word, this room is better than I expected for the price we paid!!” I will also mention that we were travelling with our exchange student and needed a room that had 2 full bathrooms and bedrooms that were somewhat private and this room checked both of those boxes. On to the amenities, the kitchen was fairly nicely stocked with a decent selection of cookware; the pool was the perfect temp and the hot tub was big. There was a nice exercise room and we walked to many different restaurants! GasTown was a 30 min walk, Granville Island was a 30 min walk, Robson was a 20 min walk, Stanley Park was a 15 min drive, Nero Waffle (most importantly!) was a 10 min walk! The hotel was a great location! Some very small cons: very slow flushing toilet and hardly anywhere to hang towels in the bathroom, and mattresses were average, if that matters to you. Will I stay here again? Absolutely!!! Would also recommend to families with exchange students or to couples wanting to share a room with another couple!
