The hotel

In a beautiful garden setting on the banks of the River Fraser, this is an extremely comfortable hotel in an extremely convenient location. Whether you use it as a base from which to explore all Vancouver has to offer or a pre- and post-tour destination in which to rest a while, you are sure to feel more than welcome here. Downtown is 20 minutes away by car or train and for those into the great outdoors; more than 20 km of riverside trails are yours to hike or bike at leisure.

Very quiet in the rooms, beautiful location, clean and friendly front desk staff. Shuttle drivers were very helpful. Restaurants were open late which was great for us having a late arrival to the hotel.

This hotel has friendly staff, but there are some fundamental issues. The public areas and the rooms need updating. The food provision is poor and resembles a slightly better UK motorway service station.
