    Very good

    Location was very good. Lobby restrunt was very good. Staff was fantastic and overall the condition of the hotel was good. Old well kept peice of history

    The add said wifi, but it didn't say it costs extra and was supported by a 3rd party. Thats not really Hotel wifi. They also state that there is parking. But they fail to state it will cost you 25$ on top of your room cost. Little things like this will keep me from staying at this hotel again. Advertisement should be up front and honest.

    This is a really lovely, well kept historic hotel. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very quiet despite being in gastown. We also didn't get the noise of the trolley cars. We were within 2 blocks of the convention center. There were so many great restaurants nearby and shopping.

    Superb

    Location was perfect and the room was clean and comfortable.

    The Internet at the hotel was expensive, but that was not a problem since there is a Starbucks with free wi-fi right there at the corner. The only thing that disturbed me was the music they played at the corridors all night long - my room was next to one of the speakers and that was a little annoying.

    The bed was comfortable. It was next to the gas lamp quarter which is central for the restaurants and nightclubs and easily accessible to mass transit.

    When we arrived the person at the front counter asked if I had reserved a room with two beds and I said I thought so. The person just said m-m-- m with lips pressed together. Didn't offer to check if there was on available, didn't just said nope you didn'T. There were two people at the front desk, neither greeted us as we walked up and even when we got to the front counter no one smiled, no one said hello. The room did not have a microwave, a coffee maker, or refrigerator.

    Antique hotel. Very cute. Had a comfortable bed, room was small. Great location.

    Small rooms. Torn towels. No parking. Had to park in structure across the street.

    Good

    For the money it was nothing special. The "fireplace" was lame. The "historical" aspect of the hotel is overplayed as in fact it is fairly new.

    I was on 2nd floor and had forgotten my ear plugs so heard people from the street late at night and also footsteps on the floor above me.

    Location to shopping and sightseeing, and the vintage historic design.

    We were Very disappointed. For 309.00 it was pathetic. I would not recommend this hotel. It's old, smells like dead cigarettes, the bell man was the register, the car-hop, and the only one there at check-in. The accomadations were old, tatered, and smelled. The bed was saggy and disgusting.
