The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few common complaints among them about additional charges and noise transfer.

Some guests were disappointed at the added charges they incurred during their stay. Namely, they felt the additional charge of $10 + tax for parking was excessive, and should have been included in the cost of their room. Another guest pointed out that he was charged for local phone calls.

A few lodgers had complaints about noise transfer during their stay. They described being able to hear the neighbours talking and the shower in adjacent rooms, as well as SkyTrain noise from the west side of the hotel, and some airplane noise in the early morning. It should be noted, however, that most reviewers found the hotel and their rooms to be quiet.
