Fantastic room and location

We had an executive king room #2809 which was fantastic! Great location and an unbelievable view of the mountains and harbour. Also away from the majority of siren noise from the hospital. Make sure you request similar. Only issue was poor water pressure which was also hard to get the temp right. Annoying but not a deal breaker. Huge living area, comfy bed and big bathroom. Fuzzy tv reception but we didn't use it much. Close to everything including supermarket, bottle shop, public transport and great shopping. Great value for 6 nights. Great desk staff who were friendly, had good advice and happy to help book tours. Restaurant and coffee shop were fine too. Not cheap but Vancouver isn't. Great location and a wonderful stay there. Great value for money. Thoroughly recommend it.

Fun trip on Canada day

We checked in very late since the traffic at the boarder was crazy. The staff was very nice and kind when our rental car broke down in the front. We enjoyed having drinks, breakfast, and dinner at the hotel lounge. Their food was amazing. There is Seven Eleven across the hotel, and we bought bottles of water and such. The room was a bit outdated, but everything else was great. We would stay again.

You can almost walk to everywhere in downtown if you have right type of shoes. That way you don't need to find public parking.

Excellent Hotel

WOW!! At check-in I asked if I could get an upgraded room at no additional charge. Boy was I pleased. I not only got an upgrade, I got the PENTHOUSE SUITE! It was Valentine's day AND my wedding anniversary so this was an added bonus. The staff was very polite & accommodating. There was a bakery café in the lobby, a bar & lounge in the back, spa facilities and a comedy club. The hotel was close to shopping, pubs, restaurants and fun. We will be back again. THANK YOU!

Perfect for my needs

I'm not needy, but I want a hotel with quiet rooms, a good view, a good location, and cleanliness. I got all of this at the Century Plaza in my studio (about halfway up 30-32 floors). They have a spa onsite (typical spa prices), a coffee shop, a restaurant, and lots of other good stuff. Plus, it's close to downtown and decent food (a 1/2 hour walk to stanley park and the aquarium, decent distance from the Canada line that takes you to the airport). Two things that could be improved upon: 1. When we arrived, we were not greeted by the person at the front door. He gave us a very weird look and did not smile or say anything. The counter people were always super nice (even when I called before, during, and after the visit), and other people greeted us.. just this ONE GUY never did... not when we first arrived and not any other time. 2. The coffee shop (Illy) needs a lot of improvement. They were out of soymilk the whole time and they also mislabeled the sorbet as gelato. It is a strange thing to expect gelato and get sorbet.

From the hotel, head north up Burrard (walking towards Georgia street) and turn left down Robson st. There are lots of places to eat down this way, and some shopping (LUSH!). Going right on Robson will take you to a large bookstore (Chapters).

Found the staff very friendly

Found the staff very friendly and helpful. Some initial problems with booking were sorted out quickly and pleasantly and housekeeping were great. Odd thing was that although our suite was clearly designed to accommodate at least three people, the kitchen only had two of everything (cups, plates, knives etc).
