Based on prior reviews I was prepared for a shabby, rundown hotel with a great location. My sister, niece and I have been pleasantly surprised. The owners have clearly made an effort to upgrade the facility: both our suites have been recently painted throughout. The bedding and towels are in excellent condition and the rooms were scrupulously clean. Much of...

This review is a bit late but I had to write this one as I do not want others to suffer the same fate as i did.I stayed at this hotel on Sept. 10 for a night as I was in Vancouver writing an exam the next day. I arrived at the hotel quite a bit early as I wanted...

We stayed in the family room 316 which was great value as had 3 queen size beds (1 queen in a separate bedroom and 2 in main room) with crisp white sheets...and it faced the side at Pendrell St, so it was a lot quieter than the main Denman St...great location as an easy walk 8 blocks to Stanley Park,...

Very dirty hotel. Unfriendly staff and poorly maintained. Very loud from street noise and windows did not close properly. We kept our shoes on in the suite because it was so unkept. Would not recommend!

This hotel is dated and needs a bit of tlc however it is in a good location. Unfortunately my friends and I waited a good half an hour to check in as the reception staff seemed to be having a bit of an issue with a large group of guests who spoke little English. There were several staff members behind...

If you ever live in an apartment in the 70's, this is one of those. It is functional and located at one of the best locations in Vancouver. Plenty of restaurants around. A morning walk by the Bay was great! Beware of the underground carpark, another great adventure!

One very helpful person on the service desk who provided assistance commensurate with expectations of people working in the tourism industry but all others answered the bare questions only. Hotel is dated which makes cleaning difficult but not acceptable to find hair and tissues in drawers, mold around plug holes, broken light fittings etc. Hotel is excellently located with a...

I was travelling western canada with my parents and we decided to stay here. We were pleasantly surprised. The area is awesome!

We stayed for 3 nights at this friendly Chinese run hotel which was in a good position near the sea front and Stanley Park. There were good cooking facilities and the room we had was large. Good value. We liked the free coffee machine in the lobby. Would stay here again if we go back to Vancouver.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
