Guests at Best Western Downtown find that they don't have to pay more for high-quality service and excellent proximity to Vancouver's hottest attractions. On top of all the standard features world travelers have come to expect, guests enjoy breathtaking views from the penthouse terrace, complimentary shuttle service to any downtown location, and complimentary loaner bicycles, a healthy and environmentally-friendly way to get around this beautiful city. The hotel also offers a fitness center with skyline views, plus a hot tub and steam room on-site.

Rooms

All guest rooms are simply and tastefully decorated and feature large windows that let in plenty of natural light, and include flat-screen televisions and free high-speed Internet access. Request a harbor view or a kitchenette when reserving a Deluxe King room to make an extended stay even nicer.

Comfort and convenience are just the beginning here, where a friendly staff and smart policies make it easy for guests to enjoy little luxuries at every turn.

Great stay, great price!

Very clean and affordable. Best hotel for the price in the area. Took advantage of all the public transportation. We bought the 10 pass booklet right across the street at the 7-11. Passes are good for buses, sky train, sea bus. Adjacent restaurant was very good and had reasonable prices. Hotel arranged free transportation to cruise port. Very friendly. Would stay there again.

Great for easy access to all things Vancouver

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.The hotel's location allowed us to access everything we wanted to see by walking.. We went to the convention center (which the hotel shuttle will take you) and got the "hop/on/hop off trolley pass that works for two days. The staff mentioned good places to eat which fit our budget and were not trying to promote any particular restaurant. I think families would like this hotel also.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Go to the convention center first to receive overall details about places to see and how to get there. Many of the staff are from the area and can give tips for sight seeing and saving money depending on your interests.

Great Location

Great location downtown. Close to restaurants and shopping. We had a wonderful vacation. The only drawback is that you have to pay for parking and you don't get breakfast included with your stay.

Very nice place to stay in Vancouver

The staff was most pleasant, the amenities as would be expected from a under-4 star establishment. They offer a free ferry ticket to Granville Island, a free shuttle ride to any location downtown, and a free 3-hr bicycle rental. We did not take advantage of the 3rd offer. Only gripe is that the WiFi was very sketchy. It somehow keeps rolling back to waiting for re-log and password, although the system doesn't clearly ask, so often I'm on standstill seemingly with no connection. It happened whether I use my laptop or my kids' iPhones.

Great family weekend

My family spent 2 nights in this hotel. The first night was noisy due to people walking down the hall and getting ice. There are ice machines on all even floors. So if you don't want to be bothered by this, get a room on an even floor. A part from that, we had a great stay. Room had pots, pans plates, etc... We used the free shuttle drop-off to jump on the skytrain. Overall great stay, will recommend to friends.

Convenience

Excellent location with parking and close to all forms of transportation. The front desk and staff go way out of their way to make sure you have a good stay. Not a high end Hotel but more than takes care of your needs while visiting Vancouver. Clean and cost effective.
