I was part of a business group that held a conference at this hotel. First, I would like to say that the service from all of the staff was excellent...from the check-in process, the bell captains, room cleanliness, quality of the food served at our conference, etc. I thought the service rated a 4.5 - 5.0 stars! Also, the location is ideal if you are on the VIctoria Clipper or Blackball Ferry Service as it is literally a 2 minute walk from the terminals to the hotel.
With that said, I thought the hotel room (a junior suite) was just so-so. The bathroom was very small considering it was a one-bedroom suite (not adequate if there are 2 people). The counter space was incredibly limited with no shelves to place toiletries, etc. I had to constantly move things around to make room for stuff. The bed was comfortable and the pillows adequate but the room really needed to be updated as the furniture looked dated and worn. I paid $14.50 for a martini in the bar. Although I requested a premium vodka, I thought that was a bit outrageous for a cocktail. I didn't even pay that much in Las Vegas at one of the 5 star hotels.
Our room overlooked the swimming pools of both the Days Inn and Best Western next door. Make sure to request a harbor-view room as I'm sure that view is much more interesting.
