                    Next door to nightclub and some drug use outside near hotel entrance. You need to be under 30 to want to stay here.

                    7.8

                    I thought the cleanliness of the room was very good. There was a problem with a noisey room across the hall. This was dealt with by staff. Overall good.

                  • Group of friends
                    8.4

                    Roomy, pleasant and well equipped. Good beds.

                    Had no room service until we complained at 5 p.m. It was then cleaned, but clearly would not have been if we had not complained.

                  • Couple
                    3.8

                    The location is good, however, the heat wasn't working in the room and they wanted he same price. We switched rooms, however, there was no conditioner provided. We had to ask 3x to receive it. The TV didn't work because house keeping forget to plug it in properly. We weren't allowed to cancel our room without a large cancellation fee even though we were completely unsatisfied. The staff then wanted to charge us $1/bag to store them there for 2 hours after check out time.

                    The hotel matched my expectations and the descriptions that other users had written on the site. I was in Vancouver for a brief number of days for a conference and for that purpose, the hotel was perfect. Room on the backside of the building was very quiet. Otherwise it might have been quite loud, as the street is very busy, day and night.

                    7.0

                    convenience to downtown YVR

                    noise from street and nearby night clubs, especially at weekends, and small size of room

                    7.4

                    For the price paid, it was a good room

                    I feel all hotels should have rooms set aside for smokers....

                  • Single
                    9.6

                    Very clean , nicely decorated, central to downtown area

                  • Single
                    5.0

                    Room was furnished nicely.

                    Very noisey location due to club scene, I ended up checking out to move to another hotel. Thin walls and ceilings. No fridge in the room.

                    it was in the middle of downtown, perfect for sightseeing and shopping by feet. after changing the room to backyards, it was silent and good to sleep..

                    we spend 4 nights in this hotel but we had to change the room after 1 night because we had the room to the street and because there is a music-club it was extremely noisy until about 4 o'clock in the morning! it was impossible to get some sleep!

                    The location, in the very city center and close to public transportations.

                    The room I was given was too noisy. The several bars and discos can be annoying during the weekends.

                    The location is really good. They had good security inside the hotel( unable to enter stairwell or elevator without a room key)

                    The hallway smelled like urine. The front desk kept trying to scam me on the bill and I had to confront them about it a few times. The parking is $20 per night and the first thing they warn you about is to empty your car because vandalism is very high. If Im paying that much for parking I kind of expected some type of security. The shampoo bottles were half empty and the room felt dirty the room felt dirty. Checkout is noon and at 9am we had the maid banging on the door. Not worth the money.

                    The man on reception each afternoon/evening was pleasant helpful and friendly.

                    We had a room facing Granville Street which was extremely noisy it would benefit from better windows.

                    Price and location

                    Bad nights sleep from all the street noise and loud bar patrons outside until the wee hours

                    Volunteer for Olympic Soccer. Great Location. Great staff. Had a good stay.

                    Internet (WiFi) in room worked ok but needs an upgrade, bandwidth is too small. Excuse at reception was lots of people using it, but not at 2 A.M. Sorry! Also there was no info in the room as to local places to eat. If you get there at 9.00pm that would help! Even a menu from "Wings" in the building saying they served breakfast would have been useful This is being a bit picky, but you asked!
