    The room is clean and big, location is great, next to the English bay, easy bus commute to downtown (bus stop is less than 5 minute walk). Will definitely stay there again. The lobby provides a historic ambience.

    West End
    A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
    verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
    Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
    paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
