Clean, comfortable, convenient location. It is located near the waterfront and is a good place not only to relax but also for a run along the waterfront. It was a convenient place for our one night stay before heading out to Whistler. Close to Stanley park as well.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was helpful at check in with giving bus route information, directions, and maps. Only complaint is the shower head - no water pressure and finicky temperature settings. Very convenient location and a short bus ride to the arena area. Would consider staying again.

What a great find in English Bay. We had a view of the ocean and were only a block away from it. The room was spacious and clean. It's also close to lots of great restaurants. Overall, a great place to stay!

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.
