Sunday - our first day in Vancouver The weather was bad today - the first time it was teeming down with rain on our trip. As we still had the car until Sunday we decided to drive out to Stanley Park and go to the aquarium, which was written up as one of the best in North America. Stanley Park looked great, even in the rain and the aquarium was also …
... They are well designed and made… apart from using 12mm holes for 8mm bolts! I found the only thing missing is a bracket to the head steady at the rear. The result was that the bar that runs around the cylinder becomes a tuning fork amplifying vibration. The bike vibrated more than before fitting the Renntec bars, so I made a bracket from the rear join to the head steady to stop it.
The Yamaha XT660R came with a very sturdy bash plate ...
... In December of 2006, the park suffered a devastating wind storm in which they lost over 10,000 trees. You would hardly know it with all the growth in such a short span of years. The major trees in the park are Red Cedar (one estimated to be 700 years old), Hemlock and Douglas Fir. The seawall was also damaged in the storm.
If you get the chance, definitely a wonderful place to visit.
... Vancouver and had also done the cruise we were about to do. He was quite nice and we enjoyed the conversation. He mentioned that the walk from Gastown to our apartment would be a leisurely 30-minute walk, so we decided to do that. He was right. Along the way, we passed, would you believe it, the Kiss Army Depot - a fairly large store that was all about KISS! We also learned that KISS was in town and would be in concert Saturday night (sadly, we are leaving before the concert).
... next six weeks collected Taz, the other counsellor and one of my fellow Brits, from the office for the ride up to camp, but after a hectic day of doing not much I was already doing my nodding dog impression before we’d left downtown. I thought I’d hidden it well, but apparently it was clear for all to see.
We arrived at the main office to a room full of very happy people who gave us each a welcome bag with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 910 Beach Avenue Apartment Hotel Vancouver
We will be back!
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room at the Meridian at 910 Beach. This is an apartment style hotel. Our room was a studio that included a living area, patio, queen bed, full kitchen, washer and dryer and a storage room. For only $120 USD, it was a great value. Awesome downtown location, a walk of one block gets you to the sea. We had a view of the ocean from our patio. The furniture / room was in good shape. Smaller towels, no feather duvet, but that cannot be expected for this price. Will definately stay again.
The Meridian apartment hotel @ 910 Beach IS quite a beautiful building. The location is great. Within walking distance of downtown & shopping. But, for $120/night, I should hope that every hotel would offer as such. Things to watch out for include: on the first day of your arrival, the staff appear friendly enough, but by the fifth, they don't bother with the "traditional greeting". We stayed on the 2nd floor & on the 2nd morning, woke up to find little black ants crawling all over the kitchen counter. Fortunately, the situation was remedied by the next morning. HOWEVER, when the hotel explanation card states; "..house-keeping duties will be performed betwen 8am-4pm..." don't believe it. We were there 5 nights, & 2 of the 5 nights, we had to make our own beds & call down for fresh towels. We were out of our room by 11:45am (late) on 2 occasions, & house-keeping was not done. Even though the "Clean please" sign was on the door, & the 2nd time, I even went so far as to remind the on-duty staff that we were late to leave the room. please have it attended to. Ignored.
The hotel was great. Room was very clean and well kept. The space was small, but well planned and very efficient. simple kichent offers everything you need for a simple meal. Staffs were friendly. We stayed at the Premier Junior Suite which offered a partial view of the marina. The reason we chose it is because the Premier Junior Suite did not allow pets (our baby has allergy).
Having read the the review from the Seattle customer I almost cancelled my reservation but I am glad that I didn't. I did contact the people at the meridian and asked for some assurances that we would not encounter the same problems that some reviewers on trip advisor had experienced, which they happily provided. Indeed during my weeks stay at this hotel the staff were excellent, always courteous and helpful. The main plus point is its location which is excellent, near great restaurants / bars, the beach, the Granville island ferry and only a 15 minute walk from Robson street and the best shopping in Vancouver. In terms of restaurants Fiddlehead joes is excellent and a 5 minute walk. Do take the time to take a ten minute cab ($10) and go to Gastown, the Capri and the Waterside Cafe are both excellent combining good food and service with great value for money. In terms of good dining experiences to include food quality, service and value for money Vancouver has gone to the top of my favourite cities to visit. Couple of other points in the meridian's favour include the free coffee and pastries at breakfast time which is an unusual extra for these type of apartment-hotels. That said the sign which read " if you take more than one pastry you will be charged extra" was both unnecessary and a bit mean-spirited. The little gym is also good although it only has 3 pieces of equipment, however the meridian is a small hotel and i never saw anyone else in there. The rooms and furniture are perfectly acceptable and good value, but not "luxurious" None of the rooms have air-conditioning although they were good enough to provide a v large fan for our living room area. This has a knock on effect to the only issue we had during our stay, which was during a hot spell in July. Due to the heat at night time we had to leave the windows open and the traffic noise was intrusive. What is it about the Vancouver Police/Fire/Medical services which requires them to put on sirens when travelling from A to B in the middle of the night when there is no other traffic on the road?? The lack of air-conditioning is the main reason I have not given the hotel a 5 star rating. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Meridian it is good value accomodation and perfect for families who want self catering while on vacation, we would recommend it to others and when we return to Vancouver (which we will) we will use the Meridian again.
I've just completed my third stay at the Meridian in around approximately a year, my employer uses it quite extensively. The place is a real gem. Clean and well maintained rooms, nicely appointed kitchens and a fantastic location.
This is the third time we have stayed at the Meridian, and we have always enjoyed it. Indeed, we enjoyed it so much the first time we stayed here, that last time we rented rooms for our adult children and their families as well. Why do we like it? The location is special. It is very near the bay, False Creek, and the ferry to Granville Island. Next to the hotel on the water there are a number of restaurants where you can eat outside next to the water. My favorite is Fiddleheads. You can easily walk downtown. I walked down to the Art Museum and back without any difficulty, it is about seven blocks, and I am 69. The hotel itself has pleasant rooms, many with some view of False Creek, and the kitchen facilities, a stove, in each room are adequate for preparing meals, with refrigerators and laundry facilities in each room I have rented. Now what I like best is that you are self-sufficient in each room, including internet. Someone who wants a large hotel staff fussing over them all the time, will not be as happy as I am. I love being adequately supplied and left alone in a perfect location on the bike and walking trail to the beaches, the ferry almost at my door, and easy access to downtown.
I am appalled at the way we were treated this past weekend. Advice to people booking online-- even if you confirm your reservation over the phone with Meridian, dont be surprised if you show up and they tell you that they no longer have the room available! What is more amusing is that they down-grade your room and expect you to pay anyway, no discounts, due to their mistake. The shady part is that they offered to hold the new room for me while i looked around at other hotels for a better deal and told me i could cancel the room if i found something better since they made a mistake, but when i returned, I was told that because i did not cancel 2 days in advance, they were required to charge my credit card the full amount?!?! they would not give me back my credit card information, and told me they would charge my credit card for the amount on the room.
We booked the penthouse 1 bedroom at the Meridian for 16 nights but only stayed for 11. The place itself is OK, but for the price, I felt there were problems that made it less than worth it. First, it got intolerable HOT (high 90's F, high 30's C)during the day and there was no air conditioning; something they ought to have for $236 per day! We were not able to stay in the apartment during the middle of the day for almost the entire first week of our visit. Some of the furniture was well past it's prime and should have been thrown out for new. The ventian blinds were also worn out in spots and not properly cleaned. The way the building is set up, we were constantly having neighbor's cigarette and cigar smoke blowing in through the windows and sometimes had to make a choice between very hot or smoky. There was also something in the air that smelled like a cheap deodorizer; the kind you smell in public bathrooms sometimes. We couldn't figure out where it was coming from although it was definitely coming from outside the hotel, but entering the windows and strong on the balcony. This may not have anything to do with the hotel but the general area constantly smelled of it and on occasion became overwhelming. The hotel is located between two busy bridges which sometimes became noisy. Air conditioning would have solved some of these problems.
Great rooms, location and service
This is a special place in a terrific location with Super staff! Located a half a block away from the Aqua Bus which takes you across the creek to Granville Island - lots of food and a fun place to spend some time. The Meridian offers apartments with kitchens and great views. In the summer ask for a room on the east side of the building - no a/c and it can get warm. We just loved this place!! Take a walk along the beach and watch to sun go down. Or, walk around the corner to one of the open air cafe's on the water and watch the boats go by. What an awesome city!
