Check-in

Checking in was quick and efficient as it was quiet. I arrived at 1:30pm from Vancouver Airport. It took 40 minutes to get to the hotel by taxi. The cost was $36.20 CAD.

The staff at the reception acknowledged my Gold membership and noted I was upgraded straight away which was a nice gesture. The hotel has 18 levels so a rather small hotel with a Hilton name in the Burnaby area in Vancouver

Room

The room is very average – about 30 square metres with a King bed. There is a sofa chair near the window which lets you gaze out to the other side of Vancouver and the mountains.

The toilet contains a shower in the tub – quite old-fashioned. Has a TV has more than 40 channels.

There is a work desk as well.

Location

Hotel is located next to the 2nd largest shopping mall in Canada called Metropolis Metrotown. I had a walk through there an is equivalent to a Westfield Parramatta size. The décor I thought was not that great so didn’t feel as I was walking through a great mall.

The hotel is also next to an Asian Shopping Centre call Crystal which has 200 shops.

Executive Lounge

The lounge was very small. The evening drinks and canapés start at 5am. There were spring rolls, potato salad and sandwiches. Quite limited but enough to make a meal out of it. As I was in Vancouver which is famous for its’ chinese food – I opted not to eat too much of it.

Summary

This hotel I would classify as 3.5 Stars. Clean enough for a night stay though – so not worried. Not nothing really classy or modern about this hotel. Good for padding my Hilton HHonor’s points accumulation though.
