Fodor's Review

This Virginia-creeper-covered 1912 heritage building is popular because of its affordable rates and its near-perfect location: a stone's throw from the beach on scenic English Bay, two blocks from Stanley Park and a 20-minute walk from Robson Street. The rooms and apartment-style suites vary from tiny to spacious. Many of the basic but comfortable rooms are large enough to sleep four, and all have windows that open. Weekly and monthly stays available. To stay here in June

through August you must book at least six months ahead.
