My suite is light and airy, large and clean, and overlooks Denman from the fourth and top floor. I expected traffic noise from this busy street but, no, it's quiet. Decor is soft earth tones. I have a full kitchen, albeit small, and a fireplace. The bed looks very comfy and the bathroom is average size.
I went up to the roof garden, which is lovely with a barbecue for guests to use. I can imagine how refreshing it would be on a hot summer night to have steak and some wine up here away from the crowds that flock to this 'hood in July and August.

The location of Times Square Suites is ideal. Visitors can walk to Stanley Park
and its beaches, to English Bay, and to the heart of Vancouver along the famed Robson Street with its stores like Hermés and Tiffany's. A short taxi ride will deposit you at the False Creek ferry dock where you can catch a cute boat to Granville Island and the famous market, which can take a day to explore. This hotel is also well served by transit, which can whisk you to the North Shore across Lions Gate Bridge to its mountains.
Dinner at Nook, a small Italian resto next door to hotel. Small menu too, but the lamb ragout pasta dish was superb. Good Italian wine list. Filled up fast with a line-up out the door. Noisy, but fun. Would definitely eat there again.
