Excellent location near to Stanley Park and False Creek ferry link to Granville Island with a wide range of restaurants within easy walking distance. Also good public transport links to other parts of the city right out side the hotel. The rooms in the hotel are well appointed and have recently been updated and redecorated although our bathroom was looking... More

We booked this hotel because it is convenient to the cruise terminal, a short ride away. The check in was fast and efficient, our room was comfortable, and the bedding was very good. The bathroom tended to be a bit small, though. There is a Tim Horton across the street and a Starbucks at the end of the block. I... More

The room was adequate. The food was adequate. Problems with electrical systems and phones did occur and were not promptly attended to for repairs. However, I would probably chance staying there again because of the location but adding a hotel shuttle would be a great plus.

Price vs location vs amenities this place is a good combo. Although an older style of hotel, the features are still in good condition, and the experience overall is very good. Yes there is a bit of road noise, but thats the price you pay for transport to anywhere in Vancouver being literally at the door.

A great location adjacent Stanley Park and English Bay with restaurants and entertainment within walking distance. The room on the fifth floor had a balcony overlooking the street but sadly the windows allowed the street noise to permeate the room environment.

A good hotel at a price that won't make your eyes burn out is not easy to find in Vancouver. However this place is just perfect when you don't want to break the bank. Off season rates are very reasonable for a pleasant hotel close to everything and on the bus line to all the sights. A recent update has... More

Enjoyed our summer stay, nice welcome, room overlooking the main road, plentiful parking. Did not eat at the restaurant but Tim Horton's directly across the street, handy for a cheap breakfast. Also many eateries a short walk away. Nice clean room and en suite, would stay again.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
