My confirmation # was 314095466. Called two days before my Mar 19th reservation to cancel and was told that the reservation I made was through an independent travel company and I would have to phone them. I phoned and left a message and subsequently e mailed them requesting my refund of $137.24. So far I have received no credit and no response. I can be reached at this e mail or by phone at 604 535 2984.

"Okay but overly priced and amenity issues."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It was sad to see ALL local hotels gouging guest due to the Aftershock convert. The average room rate for this property is less than $100 per night. During the concert they raised rates almost three fold! ($280 per night). The staff was nice and helpful but the room had some significant issue (especially for the price!). >Dirty floor (looked clean but if you walked barefoot your feet became black) >Refrigerator froze everything we put in it and there wasn't any way to turn it down >Water pressure was lacking AND (more disturbingly) the temperature fluctuate from freezing to scaling randomly during the shower.

"Totally Unprofessional"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I paid for a non-refundable King size bed which was not available, so I was stuck. I was also not asked for smoking or non-smoking and I was stuck in a smoking room. I will never recommend or use you again.
