Besides being a really nice and grand hotel, the location is just the best, only one block from the Robson street and a couple of blocks from the water. The pool is really nice too with warm salted water (4' deep). The fitness center is clean with a sauna, cool lemongrass towels, cucumber water, and fresh apples provided at no extra charge. The room dining was really phenomenal. Make sure you try out the crab mac and cheese and the chocolate cake. The prices are great and the portions are very large. Very yummy, too. We were very happy. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Of course, we will be back. We'll try the Gold floor next time.
