Does anyone have an opinion of this hotel? A Tripadvisor review mentioned the traffic noise - ? It looks like a convenient spot for accessing Granville Island and the price is not too bad.
Thanks!

As for traffic noise - it's not much different from most of the downtown hotels - that all have a certain amount of street noise - it is located by an on ramp for the Granville Street bridge - try to get a room at the rear and yes it only a two block walk to the little ferry that you take you across to Granville Island Market.

I should know as I live a block from the hotel and can see the hotel from our rooftop terrace.

Cheers

Dennis

Just as a folow up to the previous post, I think I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel as it would likely be quieter than one facing out onto Howe St.
