      Location .... friendly, efficient staff. Elegant decor, clean. ... felt safe,and did I mention.... Location??? The fitness room was not that big, but had everything one needs for a good work out...solid machines as well. Bed and pillows where great, my room was on the 12th floor, view of sourrounding sky-scrapers added to the feel of city luxury. Free internet.... Construction site next door did not interfere with my stay, never even noticed it when in suite during 3 day stay.

      I was ok with using an actual key to the suite, but the lock to my suite was "sticky" and I had a bit of trouble with that. I did mention it to the concierge at the time of check -out and I am sure it got fixed. Also, maybe the walls could be wiped off better...there where noticable remnants of spills in the living area and the bathroom.

      I was pleasantly surprised, the location was awesome, comfortable, clean, we loved it. The only thing was check in, you have to find a place to park, before you get parking.

      For the modest price of a hotel room I got an entire suite with living-room, bedroom, separate den for desk work and kitchen.

      Minor annoyance: Keys instead of cardkeys, necessity to lock the door upon leaving the room.

      It was well laid out and the location was awesome. I was really impressed with the staff and the speed of the elevator. One of the biggest things I noticed was the speed of the internet, even on the 19th floor.

      the bed was not matching the decor. It was boxy and not comfortable at all. I could almost feel the springs in the bed.

      The posiiton in Vancouver was excellent and as an apartment with a kitchen the availability of quality produce aros the road was most beneficial. Staff without fail greet you on every time you arrive or leave the premises nd are very helpful.

      The forst time having a corner room overlooking he demolition net door. Fortunately it was a week-end and I was not disturbed and the second time the room overlooked the street and was certainly of exceptional quality.

      We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and very efficient. The Bell boys were especially helpful moving our baggage from and to our vehicle. Very helpful in providing additional information about directions in the city.

      I mentioned to our Bell boy a suggestion: Because the hotel is in the middle of a block and parking on the curb is sparse and challenging, (the hotel does not have a drive through off the street to their front door) I suggested that they improve the signage in the front close to the curb instructing and directing visitors to the parking access. The parking is underground but the entrance is behind the hotel and accessed via a back alley. We found it by applying some logic and entering the back lane hoping it would be there, which is was. Some visible notice needs to be (IMO) on the front entrance so that people arriving for the first time can find the hotel front entrance and the directions to the back entrance to their parking. I intend to write the hotel with this suggestion. Of course we now know so it wont be a problem for us next visit--and we do plan on staying there again. Thank you

      They charged us extra to use the sofa bed in the room. I have never paid extra at any hotel to use a sofa bed that was in the room. I understand that you would pay extra to have a rollaway bed brought in but this was crazy. They actually lock the sofa bed.

      Great hotel with all facilities. Stayed in 2 bed 2 bath apartment which was perfect for our family of 5. Paid extra for sofa bed which was really comfortable. Urban Fare supermarket opposite really lovely food.

      None.

      Comfort level. It's like being home.

      Key cards for doors would have been better since I'm so used to them at other hotels

    • Family with children
      9.2

      Location was perfect, facilities were good and room service was responsive.

      I booked a room as family with a small child, but I was given an apartment with 3 double beds. When I complained, front desk gave me an option to get a crib for $15 a day. Well we stayed 7 days and for that price I could have bought a crib and still save some money. We ended up putting 2 beds together, so that our child was safe not to fall out of her bed. Room service then complained and I got a call saying I can't do that for security reasons. When I told them this way was more secure, front desk said they had to talk to the manager. Luckily the manager had some common sence to agree with us. Overall our stay was good, but front desk should use their brain power sometimes, not just follow some algorithm, that is in their mannual.

      The genuine friendliness and efficiency to the gals at the front desk and the concierge boys. Very very nice and helpful people. Rather unheard of really.

      Depending on the floor-some of the beds have bed springs that are very uncomfortable.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Wonderful location - especially Urban Fare across the street, underground parking, spacious suites, well stocked kitchens.

      We have stayed at the Carmana Plaza several times - either individually or as a couple - and like the hotel very much. However, this time there was a definite dip in the middle our mattress which made for a very restless sleep for two people. Time for new mattresses, please.
