    Location and proximity to market and sea taxis. Quiet and comfortable, well appointed.

    I mentioned this at front desk. The shower was great but can use a grab bar, a handle bar for safety reasons and for elderly. The dining room can use better housekeeping. Not very flattering sitting at a table for breakfast and see crumbs all over around your feet etc. A simple act of sweeping can do the trick, not consistent with image of a fine place.

    We loved the location - right on the waterfront and overlooking Vancouver with the beautiful mountain ranges as a backdrop. Granville Island itself is an ecclectic, buzzing, market place with craft shops, fresh fruits, produce, galleries, etc. You don't have to walk very far to find dozens of wonderful bars, restaurants and eateries - most overlooking the water and with those views. The service at the hotel was excellent; the room was immaculate and the food at the Dockside Restaurant was first-rate. We will be back...

    We enjoyed the "updated" room and washroom. Thought the staff were friendly and helpfull.

    Our only concern was our window in our suite. we would have like to have our window open, there was a roof are that connected more tahn one suite. You could in theroy, walk from suite to suite through the windows. I would like to see some sort of "lock" that would allow you to keep the window a little open with out compromising security.

    We stayed there before in 2004 and enjoyed its location, quality of service and comfort. The in-house brewery is also an interesting feature. Not the cheapest but we liked the relaxed and unpompous attitude of the staff and the quality and attention to detail in the rooms is excellent. About the best showers you can get too!

    Superb

    The location by the water is perfect and reflects my feelings of Vancouver.Parking is easy and the location for my needs ideal. And the beds are super super comfortable and soft.

    The business centre was not able to print my documents that I needed. Although they were done at the front desk, I lost some valuable time and do prefer to do these things myself for confidentiality etc. It would great if the fridge at real milk and-or cream for the coffee maker. Perhaps a higher quality of coffee would also reflect the hotel better, too.

    The location is great! Lots of activity on Granville Island. I could see the water from the room.

    The room was cramped...the window was an odd shape and the roof line really caught your eye before the water did.
