Terrace Suite May 18/2016, Just Like The Pictures

posted on Jun 01, 2016

We took the airport shuttle and it let us off 1/2 block from the Astoria. Melissa met us and took us to the condo, helped set up the WIFI and showed us the apartment amenities. The unit was perfect for the three of us, right on the ground level from Farfield Road. The walk to the inner harbour is quite easy. We shopped at the market on Yates which can be walke to although we took a taxi. A car really is not necessary, we took the water taxi to Fisherman's Wharf (GREAT FUN), could walk to the BC museum/IMAX, caught the bus up Douglas to the shopping centre, took a city bus tour from the Empress, which we could see from our terrace, and could have taken a bus to Buchart Gardens from the Empress as well. Melissa had put milk and bread in the fridge as well as fresh fruit on the counter for us, which was a totally unexpected pleasure. We would certainly entertain the thought of returning to the Astoria in the future, we were delighted with the professionalism of Rod & Melissa in all aspects of planning the trip. We wish them well in their business.
