Century Plaza Review

A great place to stay before going on a cruise. The only thing I thought should have been at the hotel was a fitness center. This is standard at nearly all hotels and not having one was a surprise.

One night stay

My husband and I needed just a one night stay before we went on our dream vacation, an Alaskan cruise. This hotel was fantastic. We were in a suite with a balcony and the view was fabulous. The price was normally over 200.00 a night for this room but I got a really great deal. I would definitely stay there again if we are ever in Vancouver.

Nice Experience

[...] got a good rate for a central downtown location. It's a busy downtown and even on the upper floors there is street noise, so expect that. The room was very comfortable, not pretentious, or some might use elegant. My room had a wet bar, two queens and plenty of living room. I found the building to be old and well maintained. The help was great at the bar and restaurant and the check-in/out counter. Taxi service in downtown is great and fares are OK, $8 for a one mile trip to the Convention Center and Canada Place, taking ten minutes (in pouring rain). The dinner prices in the hotel restaurant are steep, >$23 for one entree, if there is not a special. I thought the dinner special was a good value, well prepared and plenty of food (three courses)for $27. Breakfast is a better value. I would definitely use this hotel again and be on the look for local restaurants in the vicinity.

Unbeatable location for the price

I was a kidney donor and stayed at the Century Plaza post surgery. It was very convenient to St. Paul's Hospital, the suite was roomy and comfortable, and I really enjoyed my stay there. Special kudos to the doorman who never failed to ask how I was doing and who was very helpful and pleasant.

Lots of good food in a short walking distance. Close to a grocery store, and for those who want such things, there were some really good churches close by for Sunday worship.

well located downtown vancouver

Working In your reservation I couldn't pick up between twin beds or a king size, so they gave a room with twin beds which were too small,so they accomodated me ina smoking room and then they moved me the day after that was stressful to me. I already knew the place so I couldn't compare it to previous ones
