I have lots of out of town guests stay here, have attended many functions here...it's simply a consistently excellent boutique hotel with great service and a can't beat location. It's anchored by Dockside Restaurant which has a fantastic menu and vantage point with a sprawling outside patio that looks like a movie set. A shaded grass area to tie your dog is the topper. Love this hotel!

First, I need to mention how helpful the folks at the front desk were. They know their facility well and strive to make their guests comfortable. My feeling was that they would never make me feel as though any question I asked were silly. In addition, when my family and I arrived early, they gave us a parking pass well before check-in time. It's those kinds of perks which make people decide to return.

My room - 316. Oh, my gosh. That view is killer, and with two decks with which to view it! I wish that there were a way to turn off the outside lights, however, so that I could leave the curtains open at night to catch the lights from the buildings across False Creek. I will totally ask for that room again.

Go to the adjoining restaurant - Docksider - for at least one meal. Awesome food, service and view!

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view! Balcony rooms, especially along False Creek, are well worth the additiona...

The hotel was excellent - stayed in the penthouse room 401. Price was reasonable for the size of the rooms. Nice views and very quiet! Good service at front desk and hotel staff were courteous.
Celebrated our engagement and manager provided a bottle of wine and glasses...complementary

Only one suggestion - payed $12 for parking on the bill and was not able to find a place to park!

Room Tip: The hotel is in a quiet area of the island and is nice but "off the beaten track"

One of the best places I have ever stayed. Sales Manager Christine was wonderful to deal with, and very accomodating in helping us put together a stay package with them.

We stayed at this hotel for my boyfriends birthday and I purchase a coupon from WagJag. It was an absolutely fantastic experience! Upon check-in we received maps of Vancouver and Granville Island and the staff suggested where to go and spend the nice sunny day. All great places! We had lunch and breakfast the next day at the Dockside restaurant and it was delicious! Great service. Our room was spacious and very clean with a nice new tv and great view! After I informed the staff that it was for a birthday they brought a lovely bottle of red wine to our room with nice glasses. It was a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this hotel to all.
