The Good
This hotel was very well liked for its pleasant staff, clean and updated rooms, delicious breakfast and prime downtown location.

Rooms were very clean, bright, airy and spacious with comfortable beds. Some guests enjoyed pretty views from Juliet balconies.

Guests really liked the location. It was near to art gallery and museums, the Japanese garden, great restaurants, the beach and scenic walks along the waterfront parks.

Guests said the staff were really nice people. They were kind, friendly and accommodating.

The free breakfast was well liked for having fresh and healthy choices.

Many planned to return to this hotel.

Guests also liked: yummy cookies in the afternoon at the front desk, gluten-free options and non-dairy milk at breakfast, choice of pillows, and coffee creamers supplied in the guest room's mini-fridge for coffee.

The Bad
There was some negative feedback online.

Recent room complaints were: room was a little small, mattress a little soft, no safe, and room had a view of rooftop HVAC units.

Noise disturbance was mentioned from: the hallway doors, the room’s doorbell, late-night revellers and music from nearby bars on some nights of the week.

Other comments found were: underground parking was a little tight and surface lot had limited space. (Guests should note that there is free parking available on the street and nearby, on the weekends and weeknights.)
