Good hotel

This is a 3 star hotel, so you can't expect too much. It is also in downtown. The price was decent.... See full review

The innovative and contemporary lobby design reflects the modernization of this landmark hotel in the centre of Vancouver. From the trendy pillar booths in the lobby to the kitchen-equipped suites in the hotel, the family-owned and operated Century Plaza strives to provide guests with a home-away-from-home ambience. Families and business travelers, especially those requiring space to meet and entertain clients in a hotel with full amenities, appreciate the oversized guestrooms and extra furnishings provided in the separate seating areas. Located in the heart of downtown the hotel offers the complete Vancouver experience to all of its guests. This central location on Burrard Street is walking distance to Robson Street's shopping and dining, Yaletown's trendy boutiques and English Bay's beaches.

The Century Plaza Hotel is in itself in a destination experience. A guest or patron may never find it necessary to leave the premises. From top to bottom, side to side, the hotel is a multi-sensory experiential hotspot in Vancouver. A European-style spa famous with locals and visiting celebrities past clients at the Absolute Spa include supermodel Elle MacPherson and singer Christina Aguilera. Reservations are recommended. All guests are welcome to use the chemical-free indoor pool and eucalyptus steam rooms. The 300 seat Beyond Restaurant and Lounge is located in the far end of the lobby, offering Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in a contemporary setting. On-site entertainment is available in the hotel's own comedy club, which features moderately priced entertainment, a full bar, and light snacks. Reservations strongly recommended.

Vancouver adventure

Hotel was great, but would not plan on eating at hotel restaurant as they have only a few items for each meal, those were expense. My husband ordered breakfast (2eggs, sausage, toast, potatoes) and I had bagel with cream and coffee. Bill came to $19.

Not that great

[...] I am not happy with this property. The room we got 2102 was at a old portion of the hotel. It needs lot more updating. It had only 1 AC in the living room. Bedroom was getting very hot. Both rooms were shabby and need fresh coat of paint. Balcony and glass doors were dusty. Also the TV remote didn't work at first. We took this suite because we had 2 teenage children. That room didn't have enough plates and cups. The front lobby looks very impressive but not the actual room.

very relaxing

nice large room with balcony and privacy for older son. salt water pool was a treat. room was a little sparcely decorated, but the price was right and the location helpful. If you rent bikes, find one closer to Stanley Park than the one they suggest.

Didn't meet our expectations

The bathroom sink faucets needed lubricating, and we had considerable difficulty adjusting water temperature in the shower - it was either too hot or too cold. It would have been nicer if the maid didn't make the bed using the dirty sheet we had put on the floor. The kitchenette was very useful to us. There were enough dishes - though the frying pan was missing! The people at the front desk were very polite and curteous.

A great choice!

A number of our family members came to Vancouver for a wedding, and we all were very pleased with the rooms and service at the Century Plaza. Great location, fine service, knowledgeable and very helpful concierge.
