"Delightful location, with al fresco dining on the boardwalk. The hotel had 1st-class views of False Creek and downtown. Short walk to all of Granville Island markets. Everything was clean. The AC was on in our room when we arrived, and the room was cool. The king-sized bed was too much for the room, making it awkward to move about. The staff was personable and efficient. Room service was prompt and timely. Arrive early for easier parking.2015-08-01"

"The hotel was older but extremely clean and comfortable. The suite was large and had a full kitchen. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful, and did everything possible to accommodate us. We took dishes from our room to get our continental breakfast and take it back to the room; it was homey and fun. We would've loved to have stayed longer.2018-07-21"
"A wonderful experience. Walk to excellent restaurants and stores, and just across the street from English Bay. The hotel clerk upgraded us to a suite. Stay here.2017-06-09"
"The location can't be beat. I could walk right into Stanley Park and walk to the beach across the street. Plenty of wonderful restaurants, pubs, shops, and art in the area. The hotel was old but nicely restored, and the beds were super comfortable. Lovely food at the restaurant. Free underground parking. Next time I'll book the English Bayview room. If you're on a budget, get a room with a kitchenette that faces away from the bay.2015-09-16"

"The hotel room wasn't set up for 3 people as we'd requested. No air mattress, and not enough towels provided. The AC was noisy and leaked down the wall. Had to request a fan. The TV remote control didn't work well. Check out the room before unpacking.2015-06-20"
"The hotel was expensive, and parking was too. The heated pool was cold. The TV didn't work in the morning, but I'd had it by then and packed up and left. I liked that the children's meals were free, and the room service fellow was amazing.2019-04-05"

"I have trouble with stairs and requested a room on the 1st floor, but arrived to find we had to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the lobby, then took an elevator to the 1st floor. The beds were comfortable, but we were subjected to loud music from the live band at the downstairs bar. When I called to complain about the noise, the clerk told me it was to be expected at a downtown hotel.2017-06-14"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
