The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints about the rooms, the parking and rates.

Although several reviewers were pleased with their clean and spacious rooms, a few guests complained about their accommodations. They reported street noise in rooms facing Robson Street, dated decor and fixtures and no seating area in some rooms.

The hotel's underground parking lot was criticized by a few travellers, who reported it to be tight, with some areas of garbage in it. One lodger described it as more of a storage area than a parking lot.

A few patrons were disappointed with the hotel's rates. They found them to be overpriced and elevated on days where there were large events in the city.
