Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were in town to attend a family birthday which did not include dinner so I chose this hotel because i wanted to go to the iconic Tiki Bar. Upon checking in we were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the room with mostly original decor still being used that gave it the iconic vibe. When we decided it was time to eat we found out from the desk girl that all the eating establishments at the hotel were closed for renovation. This should have been divulged at the time I booked; it is important information as there is no places close by to eat & the price of the room was not discounted to reflect the lack of facilities. We were also concerned about the safety of our vehicle but everything was fine & we were surprised how quiet it’s was (we were facing the rear parking area). The bed was comfy & we slept well.

I recently stayed on Business.
The front desk staff are supurb,the restaurant service & food was excellent.
The rooms are clean.

The tiki theme in the hotel rooms are great,but the rooms show signs if wear & tear.Carpets & furniture can be replaced,in the hallways and in the room.
The rooms need updated windows to block out traffic noise,bit annoying.

Will stay again.
Thank You.

Chose this hotel based on price and distance from Rocky Mountaineer train station and because of a very early morning deiarture. I cannot complain about the front desk young lady. She was very friendly and when my husband left his backpack in the lobby, she held it for him to taxi back and get it. The room was probably the smallest we had ever stayed in , but clean and adequate for our very late arrival (cancelled/rescheduled flights) and very early departure. We arrived at 1:30 am in the morning and left by 7am. My warning is that this hotel is located in a VERY SCARY area. We discovered as we left the next morning that the area is overrun by a homeless population. Not sure when it became overrun this way, but I would definitely not recommend staying here especially if you needed to look for restaurants or businesses not shuttered and taken over by tents. Sorry Hotel at the Waldorf, not your fault, but scary area.

Heads up to cycling travellers that want to stay there: they have no storage and you cannot bring your bike to your room!!!!The clerk kindly asked me to lock my bike outside and didn’t give me any other alternatives.She seemed afraid of her manager reaction!

So had no choice to cancel my reservation and find somewhere else to sleep.

Thanks for nothing!

The room was incredibly small. In fact, it was smaller than our room on the cruise ship we boarded 2 days later. The building seemed old but everything in the room seemed new or newly redone and was clean. Nearby areas resulted in some sketchy people walking by on the street and on the bus, but the front door is access controlled. The homeless are encamped tightly in a several block area about a mile away on the same street as you get truly into downtown. The location is very convenient though. There is a grocery store across the street and a little more than a $ store on the next block and a great breakfast place 2 blocks away. 3 or more bus routes stop right outside the door very frequently so it's easy to get around in Vancouver. We took the bus downtown and to the park and also the Little Italy area, which I would recommend. I would give the hotel a five star rating if the room were not sooooo small and also did not have an elevator and the pillows were crummy. It's not a place for everybody (my wife had to get adjusted) but I had no problems and it was the most reasonably priced place we could find in Vancouver.

Just pay the extra and go somewhere else, not a nice experiance. Be warned if you stay on a weekend the far end of the hotel is above a nightclub. Our room vibrated with base till the early hours on both Friday and Saturday night resulting in very little sleep. This cost us over $600 and it’s just not acceptable. There was no prior notice to use that there would be noise and a vibrating room. When we checked into our room there was a notice saying “you may hear some noise and music”. We literally could not have a conversation in our room and might as well if had our bed on the dance floor beneath us. The photos make the place look better than it is. The floors were very dirty in not so hard to reach areas. The area the hotel is situated in was rather rife with homeless and open drug use.

Staff were friendly.

From the outside it doesn't look like much and the neighborhood looks a bit rough but this hotel is clean, the rooms are standard hotel size and the price is right. Hotel is located on major bus lines for economical and quick trip to downtown. Rates are less than half cost of downtown hotels. They are renovating a pizza restaurant and lounge next door. Lovely spot for breakfast or lunch just a block away called Rosemary's. About a 15 minute walk up the hill through a residential area takes you to several restaurants. And, free wifi.

The place is not as it looks in the photos. Is really small, old, furniture not always functional and is really noisy. Besides is located in Hastings strees, which right now if dangerous in Vancouver. Besides all that they changed us an additional night with no pisible refund, despite requesting it for months. I would not recommend staying here.
Beds are awful, the safe does not work, look for a better option and in a better area.

After walking down Hastings we should have realized that this was not going to be the comfortable night we expected after viewing the amazing pictures touting this hotel on line.
Once getting through the grubby reception area and making our way up the crumb infested stair we just wanted to lay our heads down and rest. However, the human body fluids that stained the sheets said otherwise.
The night watchman did help us out and move us to the "luxury" suite. The sheets had less matter on them but the lone pubic hair on the shower wall (we named him sneaky Pete)was a constant reminder of the happier times spent there with a John and his hooker !!! This is the unclean crotch of hotels.

Stayed in this hotel on May 14,2022. Went directly to our cruise ship for a 10 day holiday. The welts surfaced the next evening. We had poor Internet service so sent an email with photos. I got a response saying since it has been two weeks (note I am posting this only four days after our stay) and there is no evidence ( photos were sent) nothing can be done. We did find leftovers in a room room fridge. The desk people treat you nice but the management are evil in their rude snipes. I will warn all….stay away.
