It is an older hotel with some signs of age. That said, the view from our room was amazing and the service was incredible.

This hotel has an excellent location, almost on the beach in English Bay in western downtown Vancouver. The rooms are fine, but the common areas feel a little bit aged, e.g. only one of two elevators was working for most of our stay..
