The Good
Guests typically enjoyed their stays and left enthusiastic reviews about this affordable gem.

The rooms were very clean and had comfortable beds and well liked Nespresso machines. Guests liked the exterior corridors and views of the tropical courtyard from their rooms.

The location was very well liked for being close to good dining on Davie Street, the cruise terminal, the hospital, BC Place stadium and Stanley Park.

The staff were often described as upbeat, friendly and helpful.

The café on site was well liked for having good pastries and a quick tasty breakfast or snack.

The Bad
The hotel had its weaker side.

Room complaints included: weak shower pressure, small bathrooms, dim lighting, carpets that absorbed west coast humidity and inefficient and noisy heating and air conditioning units.

Some found the parking charges expensive and the spaces tight.

Noise complaints were quite common. Guests complained of hearing traffic or sirens from emergency vehicles going to the hospital across the street, music playing too early in the morning in the courtyard, clanking sounds from the elevator and conversations from neighbouring rooms.
