1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The elevator closed on my hand, nearly crushing it. They made no attempt to make me feel better about it. The room had terrible windows. The stairwell we were forced to use after the elevator was deemed out of service stunk of urine. There is no pool even though it is advertised as such on Expedia. All round 2nd worse hotel experience I’ve ever had. Location is great and their room waste program was good even though it took up 4 square feet of an already small room.

It was very close to English Bay and Stanley Park. That was the great part. The hotel itself was dumpy and needed some updating.
