Not a lot.
Noisy beyond belief. Doos and walls are paper thin do you hear what is being said in the adjacent room. Door bang and crash, house keeping staff, VERY noisy. Bed has some thing wrong underneath, light goes off if you move a little very dated . This would have to be amongst the worst we have ever stayed in. Mainly because if the noise. If the doors to the rooms were blocked with some noise control and would open and shut without an enormous bang, it would sort out smells of the problems.
Proximity to English Bay and eating establishments was great. Easy to get around. Walked to all the tourist spots. Very close to the waterfront. Located in downtown Vancouver. Did not have to use transit to get around. Staff very helpful in recommending places to visit. Beds were comfortable. Secure elevators, needed key card.
The bathroom was very small. Could be updated. No complimentary bottled water offered. The tap water tasted off, probably water softener. Should at least offer complimentary bottle of water. Hotel was a bit dated but good value for money.
The location is excellent! We stay here when we come to Vancouver as you can walk for miles steps away from the door. The hotel has had a lot of renovations and it is lovely. The restuarant in the hotel is very reasonably priced and very good. For a 3 star hotel, I definitely rate it at a 5.
I booked 2 rooms and they gave us room 426 and 414. Room 426 was ok, 2 beds and bathroom was ok. I informed the reception that window need to be clean, it looks dirty especially the list of the glass.
Room 414 was not ok, there was a mouse in the room. Reported to reception and they sent someone to the room and can not do anything. Could not change the room because of fully booked. At last they know what to do, bring a mouse trap. Maybe hotel has many mouse, because they have prepared mouse trap. I wrote to hotel asking for compensation, because I made the booking for my friends, but GM only say sorry.
Clean and modern room.
