Staff was amazing and very friendly! Wish I could come back again before the January closure! So sad to see a great hotel with passionate staff close! Hopefully Four Seasons opens a new location in Vancouver!
It is closing in 2020, and it should. Staff is trying but disengaged, Hope is tired and dull, without energy or proper amenities for the price still being charged. There is little to say - the rooms were clean. Everything else was substandard and the staff presence is non existent.
