Unique hotel well located
Great stay room was spacious and comfortable. Reception staff very helpful. Love the aboriginal decor and gallery. Great location for hockey and football.

Very Interesting experience
Very nice & helpful staff. Unique hotel & gallery. Breakfasts a bit basic, but perfectly OK. Close to a junkie-infested area, though most of them were far too spaced-out to be a problem - but that's the (only) reason for the "Local Area" rating.Handy for Chinatown & Gastown.

Really great hotel, lovely staff and a really nice free breakfast. Close to Gastown. Loved it here.

Friendly gem of a hotel
A decent and friendly hotel with very nice staff. The room was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. Location-wise the hotel is just on the edge of a slightly rougher area in Vancouver, but not anything I (single female) felt threatened by, even when walking alone late at night. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the water front, and a few minutes to get into Gastown which has decent bars/restaurants. This was a business trip and it was nice to stay in a hotel with a bit more character than all the usual international brands. It suited my needs for a business trip although it wouldn't suit everyone's needs as the hotel is too small to offer a lot of the extra services/facilities that come with the big hotels.

Friendly and unusual hotel with social purpose
We loved this hotel and had an excellent stay here. We loved that it is a business for social purpose, supporting the local First Nations (aboriginal) community. This is reflected in the brilliant art that adorns each room and throughout the building. Particular highlights: - Friendly and helpful staff - Very comfortable bed - Lovely linen and towels - Great breakfast - Very quiet room - Excellent design scheme in the room and throughout the building Other reviews commenting on the local area are, in our view, unfair. Vancouver has a problem with homelessness, and the hotel is in a central location, so you will see some people whose lot is less fortunate than your own. However, we always felt safe, even arriving late at night, and the location is excellent for walking to historic Gastown and catching buses to go further afield.
