Rick is amazing, he is so helpful and a very interesting person. The place is so near everything. I’d definitely stay there again.
Breakfast was good, the yogurt is amazing! Its mostly comprised of baked goods and some other goodies. Far from a full breakfast but certainly adequate! Be sure to book parking ahead as there is limited room, and dont be worried about your vehicle it is locked up in Fort Knox!
The hotel is great. Very clean and friendly. Being in the middle of the Downtown Eastside, it isn't the greatest scenery, however it's not unsafe either
Very clean, love the concept of the place and the presentation of Aboriginal art and support for artists.
The area can be challenging.
Continental breakfast and meeting other guests from all over. Very helpful staff - with good suggestions for spending a rainy day.
The decor, the staff, the breakfast and everything else.
Nothing I can think of.
