4/10 Fair

Over priced
I know the term "over priced" goes for all of Vancouver, but when you're charging $360 (taxes in) a night, you think you'd be getting more than double beds, an ipod dock (read that again), and a mini fridge that didn't work, all rolled up in a smaller than average room. Fool me once....

4/10 Fair

Poor management and customer service
On check in the hotel appeared fine but halfway through the stay the toilet flush was broken by the cleaner which I discovered on returning to my room at midnight. I was relocated but initially to a completely unsuitable room close to noisy construction. Service if there is a problem is very poor, there was no manager to handle the complaint and staff kept telling me the manager would arrive at the hotel in a few hours - the manager is actually never at the hotel and is not contactable. Very poor, I left before the end of my stay and was extremely disappointed with the staff attitude.
