Very nice

Very nice location right at the edge of the bustling downtown area, close to Stanley Park and the Burrard St. Bridge to Kitsilano. Parking was reasonable and very easy. Staff was very friendly, and gave a $10 voucher to the hotel restaurant. We didn't go there, but the prices were reasonable and menu looked good.

a bargain, but

The Century Plaza price was good, but the location was next to the hospital to which homeless are treated. Sirens constantly and homeless begging on street. The room was spacious, but not well laid-out or equipped (Innadequate lighting, missing lamps.) It had obviously been remodeled, but not too successfully. The hotel staff were uneven, sometimes quite helpful, other times, missing in action. Most shuttles to sightseeing attractions stopped at the Sheraton Wall Centre, across the street, but shopping was not within easy walking distance. The hotel restaurant was pricey considering a very limited menu. The building is old but at least the remodel made the lobby look attractive.

Good Service | Decent Rooms

Hotel staff was friendly. They upgraded us to the Honeymoon Suite which was far more roomier than the other suites. But rooms are old and not so modern. We are vegetarian and the restaurant accidentally served us some non-vegetarian foods. However, they didn't charge us for the meal, and also brought up a complementary fruit tray up to our room afterwards. Overall, good location, hotel has a nice lobby, nice lounge are-beyond, and swimming pool is a nice hidden amenity on the lower floor. They have a laundriette machine on the 5th floor too!
