Relaxing place to stay
Great location to all the fun things to do in Vancouver. Andrew at the front desk is amazing, helpful and sweet. Art is spectacular!

The most wonderful and unique hotel in the world
Beautiful hotel. Great staff. On Pinder with great restaurants nearby and bus services direct to Stanley Park. I’m looking forward to the next visit. My goal in life is stay in all of the rooms. So far I’ve stated into Water Room.

Great place with a really nice aboriginal theme. Very close to Gastown and Chinatown making the hotel a great walking option. Area is heavily populated with druggie homeless types however which is the only thing that effects an otherwise perfect place

Was great! My only complaint would be the neighborhood (staying as just two 20-something year old girls here was a little sketchy walking back at night or early in the morning).
Emma, usTrip with friends
Fair 4.0
I always look at the reviews before booking a hotel. This one slipped by me! The staff were friendly and helpful; the room was okay-average size-bathroom did not have ANY areas to place toiletries- the building did feel a bit secure because you had to enter from a side door that needed the card fob and you cannot get to an elevator floor without the card fob. NOW-WHAT IS DEEPLY WRONG-DO NOT BOOK HERE! 1) There is no night manager! They do give you an emergency number but no direct employee contact from 11:00PM-7:00AM 2) This area is a SLUM-thank god the cabbie clued us in. Just to clarify-not a prude so i will just state facts 3) 1/2 block from the hotel we watched a woman smoke meth/crack from a pipe at 3:00ish in the afternoon. 4)After a night of bar hopping-we feel brave to walk since it is just a 6 min walk from Gastown (really cool trendy area)-at the corner of the hotel it REEKED of urine. 5)Homeless people line the street W Pender-begging and obviously high! 6)no front lobby area-they have a podium in the corner in front of the front door and it is a gift shop of some sort-wth 7)even though they have the security door on the side it is an automatic door-which means that is automatically opens-STAYS OPEN-then closes! Not good when sketchy people line the street the hotel is on!
