Great rooms service not so great

24/10/2018 Brent H,

It's unfortunate that people can be what overshadows a property that on its own is quite good. Bad policies, and lack of commicsense by employees and managers can get in the way too. In this case...it... more

Hello Brent, Thank you for your review. At our hotel, we only accept credit cards at check-in, however the desk agent made an exception and allowed you to check-in without one and instead took a cash deposit. I am very sorry you perceived her attitude as empathetic, snarky and judgmental as I can assure you she is a lovely lady and has never displayed such attitude around any staff and especially to our guests. Our rates fluctuate on a daily basis and is based on the hotels availability. You can usually receive better discounts when booking in advance instead of making reservations on the same day. Our guest agent offered you a Best Western Rewards Member discount off of the regular rate. Thank you again for staying with us. Best regards,

Nice place to stay

I Do Not Recommend Staying At This Hotel

17/10/2018 Billesberger, Vancouver, Canada

I left many reviews of hotels I have stayed in on business and pleasure. This is the first terrible review I am writing. Why? Because this was my experience from start to finish. Being a Diamond Selec... more

Thank you for your review and again I apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay as mentioned in a private email. When you arrived at the front desk approximately 10:30am, we informed to you that we were completely sold out the night before and were still waiting for groups that were in house to check-out. We cannot guarantee that the housekeepers would clean your room immediately as we had many early check-in requests specifically on that date. We did inform you that we would take your phone number and give you a call if the room was available earlier than 4pm. Unfortunately we were not able to have your room ready until about 2:30pm, due to the many requests of in-house guests as well as guests that inquired in advance for an early check-in. Our housekeeping staff cleaned the rooms as fast as they could to accommodate all guests requests. I am very sorry that our front desk agent did not offer you points or a snack as well unable to upgrade you to a better rooms type. Based on the room types available for the day of your check-in, we only had a few rooms left and did not have anything to upgrade you to. Our front desk team reviews all elite member arrivals for the day and assigns an upgrade based on room availability, therefore, upgrades are not always granted. I can assure you that you did receive your bonus points for your stay. I also apologize for not receiving your wake up call. I will review the phone procedures with my desk agent to ensure this does not happen again with any future guests. Government rates are based on room availability and must be booked in advance. When booking your room directly at the hotel, the rate was quoted to you over the phone as well as sent to you in an email confirmation letter. Upon check-in,the guest agent re-confirmed the rates by asking you review and initial the registration card. Unfortunately, we are unable to change rates after it has been signed and agreed to. Again, I apologize that you did not have a pleasant experience at our hotel.
