Great location!

This Best Western in close to English Bay AND Stanley Park, walking distance to both. It's also in a very nice residential part of town and right on the bus line to the closest subway station (1 mile away). You don't need to rent a car if you stay here, unless you want to drive to North Vancouver, Whistler, and other locations outside of downtown. There are numerous restaurants within 2 blocks, from casual to smart casual. Although this Best Western does not provide the usual continental breakfast at this location, you will not miss it. Try out the nearby restaurants, so many to choose from, even a 24-hour Tim Horton's is right across the street. We liked the $10 BW reward provided per day if you did NOT require your room cleaning -- to be applied at the restaurant/bar in the same building!

Nice price and value to stay in Vancouver

This is a nice location near the Stanley park and beach. You just walk about 2-3 mins that you would find a lot of restaurants at next street. Also, the room is very clear and quiet.

Great place to stay In Vancouver British Columbia. Convenient to so many fun things to do.

The hotel was clean, friendly and had a great location. The Hotel Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only minor issues were that the small A/C unit was way to loud to use at night and there was no Ventilation in the bathroom. The maintenance staff could use some instruction on upkeep and repairs. But all these are easily overlooked.

Good location, fine hotel

Was a quick stay. Room was comfortable. Nice bar in the hotel. No negative experience but nothing to differentiate either! Location would probably bring me back, it's very near Stanley Park and lots of nice bars and restaurants.

Location, location, location

This hotel allows you to park when you arrive and walk to shopping, dining, and stanley Park. The parking slots are small even for compact vehicles (and you pay for parking). Window mounted air conditioners were were noisy. The rooms were very clean and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again just for the location alone.

Breakfast special in the hotel was a great value and the Japanese restaurant Kadoya just around the corner from the hotel (up stairs) has a great lunch special, three years best in Vancouver.

Very Convenient

This hotel is located in an excellent location. It is near the beach, near Stanley Park and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Everything you need is close by. It is much better walking in this area than trying to drive, and with so much located around the hotel it is really easy to find anything you would like. The restaurant attached to the hotel was good. Employees were friendly, the room was comfortable and the bathroom was nicely updated. Extremely comfortable bed and plenty of space in the room to relax. We would stay here again if we came to the downtown area of Vancouver.

Vancouver getaway

For the most part, the hotel was good, just dated somewhat. The room was a little noisy as a bus stop was immediately outside my window on the first floor and I could easily hear the TV and voices in the next room.. The girl at checkout was less than friendly, and would not give me a late checkout at 2:00. I had a conference at another hotel beginning at 5;00 pm and could not register until then.
