Times Square Suites' reception is on the parking level, which seemed strange until I walked into the office and was greeted by such friendly staff. The two gentleman and one woman were so personable yet professional, and really seemed to care about the property and take an interest in their guests.
The suites come in a variety of layouts, some less awkward than others (some extra beds seemed to be squeezed into dens and other spaces that didn't look to be set up as bedrooms). But the furnishings were modern and comfortable, and every room comes with a kitchen and washer and dryer. Some even have juliette balconies, but if you don't get one of these, no worries! There's a wonderful rooftop deck where you can lounge about or make use of the communal BBQ.
The corner of Davie and Denman can get a little loud, so if you're a light sleeper then you may prefer a room at the back.Recommended for:

Located in the West End, this is a great option if you want to live like a Vancouverite for a week. The apartment set-up really is ideal for long-term stays and each suite has a bedroom, living room, and fully stocked kitchen. Some of the suites have balconies, but even better is the terrace with BBQs that all guests are invited to use. Conveniently, there's a supermarket across the street but the area is also full of reasonably priced cafes and restaurants where you can get a bite to eat. There's even a Starbucks and a bicycle rental shop next door, so you can start your morning with a coffee then bike ride to Stanley Park.
All of the suites are a bit different and they range from a studio (perfect for a couple or solo traveler) all the way to a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite that would be ideal for a family with children. Children under the age of 12 stay free, but if they're over 12 they're charged the same as adults - an extra $20 per night.
I also have to give the Times Square Hotel credit for their on-demand house-keeping policy. This means they don't automatically change all the sheets and towels each day, but will when you request it - a smart choice for the environment and guests' privacy since, when you're staying long-term, you rarely want daily housekeeping anyway.Recommended for:

This hotel situated at the corner of Robson and Denman, very close to Stanley Park, is a fairly interesting concept that has mostly 1 bedroom suites organized (and decorated) more like a vacation condo than a proper hotel. Even entering the hotel by foot, guests either have to have a key or intercom the office to gain entry into even the lobby let alone the rooms.
That said, the “lobby” is really just a tiny office in the basement and there aren’t any on-site amenities aside from a pretty nice rooftop patio. The hotel is really about having a room and some secure parking and probably lends itself well to longer-term tenants. The rooms themselves are quite spacious and bright even if the décor is a little dated and each has its own washer, dryer, and full kitchen.
The rooms have everything needed to live in the suite for a while but if you like fancy things like restaurants, spas, or even chic décor, Time Square isn’t really the place for you. If you are looking for a comfortable place with ultra-friendly and helpful staff that is very close to the water and reasonably priced, I’d say check it out.
