Hotels on Kingsway, Vancouver offer a great location with public transit easily available, and are near the Canada Line and Expo Line for SkyTrain access. Our competitive price is just one way we stand out amongst Kingsway hotels. Prices are very competitive and medical discounts as well as extended-stay discounts are available. Best Western Vancouver hotels combine value with top service, such as our 24-hour customer service and business center. As a 100% non-smoking hotel, were committed to making every guest's stay comfortable. Hotels in Vancouver are close to Granville Island, Gastown, Chinatown, Stanley Park and Telus World of Science. Were on several bus routes, so it's easy to explore the region. Located one mile from the Pacific Central Station where buses and Amtrak are headquartered, day trips are simple. Our Vancouver hotel is a Green Key hotel, with a Two key rating and recycling bins in every room. Many guests choose us while in town to attend a special event like the Vancouver Sun Run, Gay Pride Parade and the annual fireworks display at English Bay. Guests also benefit from our customer-driven focus combined with a great location. This Vancouver hotel is in close proximity to sporting events like Roger's Arena and BC Place Stadium. Popular events include NHL hockey games and CFL football games. Queen Elizabeth Theatre is also nearby and regularly hosts concerts and live theatre. If youre in town for business with Canada Revenue Agency or Loblaws®, mixing in a little pleasure with a game or concert is easy. Our hotel also regularly hosts Greyhound drivers and employees of Buy Low, Great Northern Way and Kwantlen College. Free underground parking and room service is available, and our famous free deluxe breakfast is featured daily with choice of breads, cereal, fruit, hot eggs, hot breakfast meat, other hot items, yogurt, juice, and coffee. Free daily newspapers, free Wi-Fi, and free luggage storage services are also an option.

No Frills

There are great restaurants within walking distance but this hotel is not in the heart of the city. This hotel is a great place just to sleep somewhat near the center of Vancouver and get free parking. The staff, however, is courteous and extremely helpful.

Nice hotel

Nice room, friendly staff - very clean. Only issue was the parking was in a small, cramped underground garage. So had to find street parking first to check in, then go into the parking garage and get settled. Minor incovenience.

Location

Booked at the Best Western because it is walking distance to the inlaws. Was very happy with room, parking and staff and would definately stay there again on our next trip to the mainland.

very good exerience

We came in from the Seattle area to attend a Bonnie Raitt concert. We stayed overnight in a nice 4th floor non-smoking room with very high ceilings. Very comfortable beds and nicely decorated. Due to its odd placement in the room and the high ceilings in the room, the air conditioning unit struggled to cool enough to our liking. Limited parking options; 1: street parking along a side street (marked 2-hour parking but supposedly unenforced), 2: across the street in the BuyLow Market parking lot (from 9pm to 8am), 3: underground beneath the hotel...the 6'7" ground to ceiling clearance is difficult for the larger SUVs. None of these parking options appeared to be patrolled or monitored by security of any kind. The hotel staff was very friendly, professional and helpful.

Much above an average!

A location away from downtown Vancouver can be downside of a hotel, however it is not inconvenient from YVR. And there is a shopping mall just next to this hotel. Mostly important, staff in this hotel are very friendly.

Great value

If you have a car and don't mind staying outside of downtown at a great price, in a clean hotel with all the necessities (free parking and wifi as well as a great range of free breakfast offerings), and last but by no means least, very friendly staff, this is it. There is bus service, but it does take a while to get downtown. Who knows, you might even run into Roky Erikson and Band for a chat, as we did. (The breakfast room does encourage conversation.)
