We checked in on September 10 for 1-night, as our ship left on September 11 for Asia. There was some confusion when we arrived...we schlepped our luggage from the sky train station, which was a couple of blocks away, so a little tired.

This hotel is beautiful. The staff is helpful and cordial, and the Lounge Restaurant was great for dining. It is walking distance to many interesting and historic sites. When in Vancouver again we would definitely stay here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
