Very friendly staff. They even accommodated at getting me an earlier check in time. The hotel was being renovated at my time of my stay but wasn’t a bother to me.

Close to airport.
The hotel is only a short shuttle bus to the airport, but it was a little cramped and basic. The restaurant was of a higher standard with quality food and service.

Easy to get around the downtown area, close to skytrain for access to downtown

Brief but pleasant
We arrived late on the airport shuttle, shared an excellent dinner in the somewhat noisy restaurant and left early the next morning. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Everything worked smoothly and the cost was very reasonable.

Comfortable Loft BUT Needs A Good Cleaning
Good overall, these days we sanitize everything regardless...good thing we did, the fridge still had a couple fingerprints with dried food on it, the cabinets, which are old had something on them that came off after wiping them down. The crown molding had lots of dust on them (upstairs). Comfortable otherwise but def needed to be cleaned much better...I have stayed in many hotels in the past few months and sanitize all of them as well...this one was def not the cleanest - very surprised, especially during COVID-19, one would think extra attention would be given to this.

Nice property, needs better maintenance
The suite was very nice layout, and the property was well designed. Staff was friendly and efficient. The suite was acceptably clean, however more care could have been taken. Maintenance is however, it's downfall. Wall paper coming loose in corners and at seams, kitchenette cabinets all needing cosmetic repair, badly scratched microwave face and non functional turn table all manner the property feel poorly maintained.

Will stay here again
Firstly location is really ideal - close to airport and highways either leading north or west. For the room initially booked for us we encountered a little issue with the bathroom door locking us out and that you can hear the plumbing ie when someone else flushes you hear the water through piping. The room was near the elevator and vending machines. We just tried to inquire about it at the front desk and they immediately offered to move us to another room which was a lot better. I appreciated that we didn't have to complain or request it - they were just hospitable to move it. Front desk staff were amazing. Also because it's COVID times I was under the assumption that there would be no housekeeping unless requested but there was everyday with coffee and fresh towels, and they were also very nice. We enjoyed our 6night stay on our first visit to Vancouver. The few things that perhaps I could mention needs improvement were the tiles in the kitchenette and bathroom. The are clean but there are some chips and wear. Also there is a lot of parking but the spaces themselves are a little narrow (we drove a Corolla). If you have a truck or bigger vehicle you should either park by the curbs of the lot or at the Moxie's side (still the hotel but the back entrance.) They do offer Breakfast To Go items but not worth the price. (granola bar and some fruit for like $8). But there are so many breakfast places and Tims across the street so we were fine with that.

eat hotel cheap moxies
Hotel was great in hotel restaurant moxies could not be bothered to change there signs. I ate there on my first night and seen happy hour food and drink menu's. It said 9 till 12 the next night i show up for food and beer at 10 and they are closed. Apparently they did not want to spend $3 to change the signs stating it closes at 10. Instead i had to go out in the rain and get McDonald's. Not happy at all with moxies.
