Unfortunately someone tried to break into our rental car while parked in hotel parking. They were not successful, but were able to get into another vehicle close by. Hotel management refunded our parking fee @ $18/day. Upon returning the car to Budget, the rental agent commented that they have a history with break-ins on other cars in this parking lot.

Perfect for a get-away!

Pros: It's on Granville Island! Come, park and walk. Rooms are compact, comfortable and CLEAN.
Cons: Can't think of anything I'd change.
Location: Granville Island is a Mecca of the best of BC fine crafts. The huge Public market is legendary for the freshest produce and marvelous baked goods. YUM
For friends who love art, high end crafts and good food, Granville Island was the ideal destination for a 2 day get-away. And staying in a lovely hotel, walking distance to everything on the Island made the vacation perfect. Next time we're coming for 3 days!

Should have done my research better

Pros: Nice hotel geared for well to do tourists, especially if you have destinations on Granville Island to get to. Not so convenient if not.
Cons: There was no pool or spa which I found surprising given the price, but then again it is an older facility on a small island where land is not cheap.
Location: It's on Granville Island so if you plan to do anything there it would be very convenient. But it is not close to the downtown core or Stanley Park.
I booked here seeing it looked close on the map view to the finish line of the RSVP Seattle to Vancouver bicycling event, but didn't realize it is on a secluded very touristy island with no easy access from the part of the city I was trying to get there from (English Bay area). I had planned to use Car2Go to get around the city but once there I realized that there were not going to be any Car2Go vehicles conveniently sitting around Granville Island, so I ended up doing a lot of walking, eight miles each way (I refused to use a cab or bus after cycling 185 miles to get there from Seattle). I'll know better next time and stay closer to English Bay.
