The room was cramped. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. The staff also is poorly trained. I don't recommend this hotel unless you're gonna get wasted and just want a place to knock out.

Fantastic and unique hotel. Very upfront about what rooms may be noisier than others, to us it was a super fun place to stay. Stayed in 'The Nook" because we knew we wouldn't be bothered by noise nor needed a very large room. After booking, we received an email ensuring we knew about noise and size of the room, which I thought was so thoughtful to already give the extra effort to ensure we enjoyed the stay. The room was actually larger than expected, guess I had very low expectations after reading everything that said it was small.. totally worked for my husband and I! Went for a concert at Budweiser Stage and enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel after the show! Room was clean with fun décor and furnishings. Look forward to staying again.

There was a private event in the bar so it was closed to guests the night we were there. We were looking forward to a relaxing night away from family and I had hoped to not have to leave the hotel in the evening. A heads up that it was going to be closed all night would have been nice!

This boutique hotel is within walking distance of the Trinity Bellswood Park and King West district. Lots of lovely restaurants within a 15 minute walk and eclectic shopping in a quirky neighbourhood. Quiet enough to be out of the hustle and bustle and close enough to be downtown.
