Superb 9.0 From 437 reviews

Good 6.0
The hotel itself was clean, fun and the staff was nice. Initially when we first went to our room we felt like it wasn't correct as we were given a family room with three beds. We went down to confirm and were informed that our room was given we were given something smaller which wasn't what we paid for and no refund was issued. The other really disappointing fact about staying here is that the location is right in the middle of a very uncomfortable and scary homeless area. We were greeted the first morning to feces smeared on the wall. A couple doors down seemed to be a refuge and there were constantly needles on the ground that we had to be careful of especially when returning to our hotel at night in the dark. We wish we knew this prior to booking our stay and feel that others should know. Especially for women travelling alone or families travelling with young children.

Superb !
I can only say the stay was great in a great place. I recommend it without hesitation. I would also like to thank Andrew and the other gentleman at the reception desk. They strived to make the stay joyful.

Great experience!
Nice hotel with great local art gallery. The first 2 floors are artist studios. Their work is sold for reasonable prices at the gift shop. Good breakfast and beautiful decor. Rooftop has a smudge room and good city views The place felt safe even though it is in a bad neighborhood, and is a short walk from good restaurants in Gastown.

Nice place
Great hotel on the whole. The room was nice and the service was really good. The neighborhood was not the best in Vancouver but it wasn't terrible. Close to Gastown and China Town I would stay there again.

Nice stay in Vancouver.
It was a very pleasant stay with a wonderful mini fridge that chilled the champagne to perfection. Bathroom needs a little vanity space to put toiletries on.
