Cons:My stay fell between the Canada Day and US Independence day holidays and very warm summer weather, so it was extremely busy. There were so many people enjoying everything, but it made for a lot of noise. There is no actual air conditioning, just a portable unit and windows. I couldn't keep the windows open at night because of the noise. Also, if you open the curtains, you are visible to others in adjacent buildings. Next time I would prefer a room facing east. You won't see the water, but it should be quieter.
Cons:Little or no heating control in room.
Cons:No mini fridge in our room

The exterior walls of the building are densely covered in a creeper vine, creating a jaw-dropping sight that has to be seen to be believed. A breathtaking element of the city, the color of the leaves changes with the seasons. On the outskirts of the downtown district, car traffic is barely noticeable, delivering a quiet oasis. A well-known landmark in Vancouver, it served as a post for the navy during World War II and was one of the tallest buildings in the city until modern development. Two children’s books were written about the history of the hotel and are available to purchase in the lobby.
Make the most of the stunning waterside location by booking the Beach Avenue Suite. Large windows face out towards English Bay and Stanley Park, letting in an abundance of natural light. The dining table and sofa couch offer a spacious area to relax. Available from roughly C$ 329 (approximately $252) per night, it has a maximum capacity of 2 adults and 2 children.
Upon your arrival, you will be given food and water bowls, a blanket, tasty snacks and waste disposal bags. The hotel has an on-site grass area for walks and toilet breaks, while the Stanley Park Dog Park is an 8min walk away. Two pets of any size are allowed per room with no additional fee.
