A very fine apartment with a view We stayed there in December and we had a very good experience. The apartment is exactly like in the photos, it is not large but comfortable even for 4 adults, and the view is spectacular. The kitchen is well equipped and there are also a washing machine and a dryer. The dishwasher could work better though, and is a bit noisy, so we started it before getting out in the morning. No problem with the heating. The location is perfect for visiting downtown, there is a metro station across the street: public transport is very good, so we could easily visit also some of the attractions in the area, like Van Dusen Botanical Garden (a must-see at Christmas time!) and even Capilano (free shuttle at Canada Place). We only found a supermarket a 15 minutes' walk away though (IGA), but maybe there are other options. A movie theater and the Rogers Arena are very close, and so are many good restaurants. Our favourite was Chambars, just across the street. The manager was very helpful at check in, and we also arranged very suitably for check out. Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Friday, January 13, 2017 Thank you for your review of Spectrum 31. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the property. There is a smaller market closer to the property, across the street, just down from the public transportation station (Asian) which does have full grocery amenities. This location is good for activities and restaurants - something Vancouver is well known for. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Absolutely wonderful condo! My spouse and 9-year old twins had a fabulous time at this condo. It's walking distance to many fun places and the view was so spectacular that we had to order out for dinner one night so we could fully enjoy it. Though on the small side, the condo feels expansive with all the windows. I wish there were more hooks and such for hanging towels, but that's a very minor detail. The rental company was very communicative, helpful, and personable. The condo's at the top of the neighboring skylines, so you can see far and wide. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful views! This condo on the 31st floor boasts beautiful views through its floor to ceiling windows. Unfortunately because of the very warm temperatures during our stay, it was difficult for the two room air conditioners to satisfactorily cool the condo. In fact, one day, the air conditioners quit working (I think they were overworked). Perhaps blackout blinds may be a solution. The condo itself was clean and the furniture was adequate for us (2 couples). Closeness to the False Creek ferry was a bonus as we used this ferry service to get to Granville Island.

Good alternative to a hotel for a family This 2+2 unit on 31st floor of north facing apartment offered convenient location and adequate space for 4 adults traveling for a weekend. Rooms were tad small and tight for full size adults to maneuver but sleeping is all you require then that's fair. Restrooms and showers were below average in my opinion. Shower heads barely sprayed water due to weak water pressure so that was annoying. Hard to shower when you're barely getting water through the shower heads. Location is what this place offers. Within walking distance to most activities in downtown. Free dedicated parking is awesome. Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Thursday, July 2, 2015 Thank you for your review of Spectrum 31. We will pass along you experiences to the owner. Water pressure issues has more to do with the buildings water system and not the unit itself. Peak periods (people getting ready to go to work in the morning in the building) can at times lower the building water pressure. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

Buyer Beware The property location was excellent and the unit was clean and well appointed I was very disappointed that we were not able to use the pool as this was the very reason we decided to pay more to rent the unit. We were not advised until we arrived that we could not use the pool even though we had booked the unit in May and the decision to exclude vacation renters from using the pool was made in July. We were not told until we went to pick up the keys in August. However we did receive a small $75 reduction and we were offered to use pool facilities elsewhere but it was way too far away to be convenient. Also the unit is advertised as having air conditioning. Another reason we chose this unit initially from many other less expensive options was that is was suppose to have air conditioning. The unit in the bedroom was OK but for most of the day the living room was unusable as the AC unit could not deal with the heat. The room temp with the unit on was 35c. Despite the great location I would not rent here again as when we holiday in the summer I want to have functional AC and a pool. <br/>However if these issues are not an issue you can't beat the view and the location.<br/>I will know for next time to call the company I rent from a find out more about restrictions and amenities. <br/> Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Monday, September 1, 2014 Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are happy to hear you the location and the views. Vancouver has been having an unusual warm spell in the summer of 2014. The unit does have two portable AC units. If the AC in the living room is not set up to have the exhaust hose out a window it ends up blowing warm exhaust air into the unit which defeats the cooling of the room. Instructions for the AC was provided in the unit. Please call our support line as we are quick to respond to any issues that may arise during a guest stay. Since most of the year Vancouver is relatively cool, AC is rarely needed. We no longer advertise the pool or fitness facilities as part of the rental as the building management had made the decision to only allow access to full time tenants. This information came as a surprise to us as much as it was to you. We hope to see you again in the future to make up for some of the issues faced during your stay.

Vancouver-602 Citadel Parade The property was clean. Well appointed with appliances, silverware, etc. The apartment is best suited for a party of three. We were traveling with four. It made the place feel cramped. The A/C equipment is cumbersome and not totally effective. The view from 31 floors up is lovely, but the patio is tiny. The doors in the master bedroom and bath squeak really loudly. Access to the pool was denied for two days and handled very poorly by property managers. Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Friday, July 25, 2014 Thank you for your review of your stay and we are happy to hear you do recommend this property. Not having access to building amenities due to service, maintenance and other reasons is not under the owners or agents control. The owner offered a pass for the Sheraton Spa, Aquatic Centre or nearby gym for the two days this guest had no access. All offers have been declined by the guest who rather asked for cash compensation. This was accepted by the owner and confirmed with the guest during his stay and a cash amount was returned to the guest. From day one and during the entire stay staff have been communicating with the guest about various questions and also have been called out to the unit on a weekend evening to explain the stove top indicator lights. After another call about the temperature a second AC was installed to keep the unit at a pleasant temperature.

Terrible experience This was the worst travel experience we have ever had. The unit was very hot. The AC unit did not cool the unit. The unit needed black out curtains like other nice units in Vancouver have to deal with the very early morning sun. The staff and owners gave no accommodation and we had to leave early. Terrible experience. Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Friday, July 18, 2014 This guest is not accurate in the telling of his story. He demanded a full refund after leaving the place over black out blinds (nothing more, nothing less). He said if we didn't give him all his money back he would go all over the internet and give bad reviews about property. The property is not advertised with black out blinds nor was this requested at the time of booking by this guest. If this guest has an extreme issue whereby they need absolute darkness, the guest should purchase a sleep aid eye mask. Without a guest disclosing a unique issue, we have know way of knowing if the property is suitable or not for their needs. Vancouver does have warm spells from time to time during July and August and this is why the property does have 2 portable A/C units. This guest was instructed on how to use the A/C units but did not use them properly. He was told he needed to ensure the exhaust hose is angled out a window. He did not do that, thus the unit was blowing hot air into the condo while trying to cool it down at the same time. We do our very best to accommodate reasonable requests by guests, but in the case of this specific guest he left, demanded a full refund (or else), and did not give us a chance to assist him with using the A/C units properly. We are not happy that he did not have a good experience, but if a guest has a unique condition they should disclose it at the time before booking, rather than after the fact where nothing can be done. In his case, he made a mistake, and did not want to own up to it, and instead wanted the owner of this property to take the financial hit over it.

Great location, poor amenities and too hot in summer The mngt. company was great. Very nice and professional. The condo was perfectly situated downtown close to much of the sites and activities. The parking was free and convenient, however, the wait for the elevator could be very lengthy at times. The views from the condo very beautiful. The provided desktop computer was very nice and helped with searches for things to see and do However, the sun cooks the all glass apartment in the afternoon making the stay miserable during the hotter days. We had to stay out until the sun set to avoid the sweltering heat in the condo from the afternoon sun. Leaving all the windows and doors open or running the totally inadequate tiny air to air conditioner made no difference whatsoever. The fans they provide just circulate hot air. The condo is tiny also with little room for 4, better suited to 2-3 people. <br/><br/>Another completely frustrating concern is the inadequate amenities provided. There were 4 washcloths and 4 towels in the whole condo, no dish washing or laundry or bath soap, no trash bags. You had to wash the towels and washcloths everyday or there were no clean spares. A real pain after a full day of sightseeing. <br/><br/>I don't think I would rent this unit again because the negatives outweighed the positives. Look for a bigger and more nicely appointed unit before considering this one. Response from EMR Vacation Rentals Inc.; Monday, January 13, 2014 We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind review. There was a mini heat wave on at the time of your stay. This is not the norm for Vancouver.

We stayed there in December and we had a very good experience. The apartment is exactly like in the photos, it is not large but comfortable even for 4 adults, and the view is spectacular. The kitchen is well equipped and there are also a washing machine and a dryer. The dishwasher could work better though, and is a bit noisy, so we started it before getting out in the morning. No problem with the heating. The location is perfect for visiting downtown, there is a metro station across the street: public transport is very good, so we could easily visit also some of the attractions in the area, like Van Dusen Botanical Garden (a must-see at Christmas time!) and even Capilano (free shuttle at Canada Place). We only found a supermarket a 15 minutes' walk away though (IGA), but maybe there are other options. A movie theater and the Rogers Arena are very close, and so are many good restaurants. Our favourite was Chambars, just across the street. The manager was very helpful at check in, and we also arranged very suit

My spouse and 9-year old twins had a fabulous time at this condo. It's walking distance to many fun places and the view was so spectacular that we had to order out for dinner one night so we could fully enjoy it. Though on the small side, the condo feels expansive with all the windows. I wish there were more hooks and such for hanging towels, but that's a very minor detail. The rental company was very communicative, helpful, and personable. The condo's at the top of the neighboring skylines, so you can see far and wide. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

This condo on the 31st floor boasts beautiful views through its floor to ceiling windows. Unfortunately because of the very warm temperatures during our stay, it was difficult for the two room air conditioners to satisfactorily cool the condo. In fact, one day, the air conditioners quit working (I think they were overworked). Perhaps blackout blinds may be a solution. The condo itself was clean and the furniture was adequate for us (2 couples). Closeness to the False Creek ferry was a bonus as we used this ferry service to get to Granville Island.

The location and views were fabulous. We rented a car but soon realized we did not need it so took it back early. We had a little hiccup with the air conditioning at the beginning and Simone came over right away and fixed it for us. You definitely need the AC and close the blinds during the day while you are out. As long as we did this it was great. I would definitely go back.

This 2+2 unit on 31st floor of north facing apartment offered convenient location and adequate space for 4 adults traveling for a weekend. Rooms were tad small and tight for full size adults to maneuver but sleeping is all you require then that's fair. Restrooms and showers were below average in my opinion. Shower heads barely sprayed water due to weak water pressure so that was annoying. Hard to shower when you're barely getting water through the shower heads. Location is what this place offers. Within walking distance to most activities in downtown. Free dedicated parking is awesome.

I experienced wonderful service from my initial interest thru the process of securing/booking the rental. Sheana made it effortless, even though I booked a last minute trip during a busy season! Then given a pleasant welcome, quick and informative check in by Isabel and her lovely assistant. Stayed at Spectrum 31 (swanky cool place on 31st floor); beautiful 270 degree view of several neighborhoods and the bay...just a hop, skip or a jump to everything! The Skytrain at our feet, amazing restaurants, pubs and spots nearby, with a transit system that makes it easy to get around (sometimes even eager to stroll it, see a bit more that way!). I recommend renting electric bicycles to cruise the huge park, city and harbor; too cool! My kind of city! All aces to the fantastic agents and reps who assisted, you made a lasting impression on me! Until my next trip, Cheers!

The property location was excellent and the unit was clean and well appointed I was very disappointed that we were not able to use the pool as this was the very reason we decided to pay more to rent the unit. We were not advised until we arrived that we could not use the pool even though we had booked the unit in May and the decision to exclude vacation renters from using the pool was made in July. We were not told until we went to pick up the keys in August. However we did receive a small $75 reduction and we were offered to use pool facilities elsewhere but it was way too far away to be convenient. Also the unit is advertised as having air conditioning. Another reason we chose this unit initially from many other less expensive options was that is was suppose to have air conditioning. The unit in the bedroom was OK but for most of the day the living room was unusable as the AC unit could not deal with the heat. The room temp with the unit on was 35c.

The property was clean. Well appointed with appliances, silverware, etc. The apartment is best suited for a party of three. We were traveling with four. It made the place feel cramped. The A/C equipment is cumbersome and not totally effective. The view from 31 floors up is lovely, but the patio is tiny. The doors in the master bedroom and bath squeak really loudly.
