This 31-story high-rise built in the 1960s towers above the rest from its lofty position on a rise. It has some pretty terrific views, especially from the upper floors. It’s also a pretty sweet-looking hotel on the inside, thanks to a major reno in 2011 that included new windows and a cool, new decor. The rooms look fresh and modern, with bold colors and sleek lines, jazzed up with funky details like throws printed with tree branches, multi-colored striped carpets, and paintings of seascapes that echo the view out the windows. A good location near the shopping district of Robson Street, and a terrific value for the area.
