Priceline Hotel: 3* Vancouver Plaza 500 Hotel

To whom this may concern,

Hi. I've used priceline before and generally can obtain hotels that I'm targeting or that is acceptable to me. This time around I looked at the list for 3* hotels in Vancouver, BC area and didn't see a "Plaza 500 Hotel". I bid a 3* and ended us with this particular hotel. I usually end up in the west vancouver area that is acceptable to me but now here I am at Plaza 500 out in nowhere land with construction work right on this block. I read the reviews on tripadvison and everyone just didn't like this hotel. Can someone please update the hotel list for Vancouver, BC. Please, I never want to come up with this hotel again or this particular area. I'll stick with my 4* and be in the area where everything is pretty much walking distance or with beautiful views and close shopping and dining.

Sorry, guilty here! I'm still at this hotel, I'll give an upadate as soon as I return home tomorrow night. If it's any consolation, I do use SAVINGSBARN when I book the hotel rooms :) !

This hotel room (323) was quieter than the Coast Hotel and Suites, which turned out to be a nice surprise. No mildew or stench like I was dreading because of the reviews I read on tripadvisor. Overall our stay was nice, staff was friendly. My iron wasn't working and I requested a replacement at 6am in the morning and they brought it to me within 5 mins! Valet parking/overnight $15 canadian plus tax. The room was nicely decorated and the lobby is elegant, again nicer than Coast Hotel and Suites. The only problem is that there was construction on the whole side of the block by the hotel, it is kitty corner from the CITY HALL not convention center. Not at all west Vancouver, it's on the other side of Cambie Bridge, not walking distance to all the Robson shopping and Stanley Park. So if you don't mind driving to where you want to go around town and want a clean room then this isn't so bad. But for a few more dollars and some savvy bidding you can probably get something pretty close to this price range for a 4* in Vancouver.
