      Everything, except one meal (evening meal) not quite as good as it normally is. We have styed here before and will again.

      Granville Island a great place to stay-lots of restaurants/shopping/entertainment. Very central plus right on the water.

      Room we were given quite small but able to upgrade to a wonderful room for $30 per night

      1. We were given room 325 - this is a disgrace at the price we paid: it was pokey and had no view at all out of the partial window; only the roof tops. I have never stayed in such a useless hotel room. 2. On our first night we sat down on the patio only to be 'disciplined' by a female staff member who said that we had no right to simply sit down and order a drink. She 'warned' us about doing this again in a manner that I am not used to accepting. My wife was quite distressed by this and it ruined the first part of our evening.

      We took our granddaughter who is turning 7 to the hotel as a birhtday gift. she loves going to the kids market and the water park, the only thing missing is a pool. We also took the water taxi to science world. We enjoy the hotel because we can park the car and walk to everything, the food is great, the menu for young children is really good and inexpensive. Our granddaughter said that we coudl take her there every year for her birthday until she was 18, she had soo much fun.

      Comfort of bed. Free WiFi.

      Incredibly restricted space. Very uncomfortable to get to some parts of room. Had to straddle the toilet in order to shave in the morning.

      Location and plenty to see right on the island.

      Room felt a little cramped.
