Location - Location - Location.... and all the amenities you need.
My two friends and I stayed at the Pied-A-Terre on the long weekend in April. It has beautiful views and the apartment was stocked with all the items we needed to be able to eat in, with a grocery store just a short walk away in China-town. We loved that it was so close to downtown for easy walks to the museum, shopping, the harbour and there are many fabulous restaurants in the area. Red Fish, Blue Fish, Canoe Pub, Shizen Japanese Restaurant ... and so many more. There is a really neat store one block away called Full Circle World... loved it for unique items.
