Great location, the hotel was beautiful. Location was difficult to find by car, it a little off of Georgia, which can be kind of misleading. Parking was $26/day which considering the astronomical prices for everything else in Vancouver, wasn't that bad. The valet were very helpful. All great Vancouver destinations are in walking distance. Close to Gastown, Chinatown, Robson Street and it's a short hike to the ferry to take the ride across to Granville Island. The pool and hot tub were great, but it was strange that the exercise area surrounded the pool, so relaxing dips in the hot tub were met with the pounding of a treadmill. Except one unpleasant front desk clerk when checking in, the service was excellent. All staff is trained to be very helpful and they consistently ask, "is there anything else I can do for you."
