Just finishing up a 2 night award stay at the HR Vancouver.... I booked the basic award room which was 12k points per night. Upon check-in, was upgraded to a Club level corner room and they offered me both my Diamond amenity and 4pm check out, so good status recognition there. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially both Regency Room concierge people who helped with great recommendations on food in the area, and getting me last minute tickets to the Canucks vs Capitol's hockey game (so fun!). Our room was good, nothing spectacular. 29th floor with a nice view. But the entry (due to being a corner room) was a bit odd, with about a 10 foot long hallway before entering the room. TV was tiny (32inch)? but everything else was nice, including a decent bathroom and very comfortable bed. Regency Room is nice, was never too full when we were there, standard offerings of bages, fruits, cereal in the morning, light snacks later on, drinks in the afternoon (honor system, and only $4 which is great). Very nice views from the regency room. We did have drinks at the Gallery lounge... it was ok. Nothing spectacular but a decent hotel bar, they had live Piano last night which was nice. The hotel location is fantastic, in the heart of downtown. Everything is walkable, including the Robson area, Rogers Arena, Gastown, Chinatown, and we even walked to Granville Island. Access to the skytrain system is easy with the Burrard station half a block away but we didnt use it at all as the weather was nice enough to do some walking. My wife used the fitness room, its smalish and really just treadmill and bikes, but thats all she needed, so its good enough. Overall, a very enjoyable stay. We'd definitely stay here again if we come back to Vancouver.
