Nice but noisy

The doors have a tendency to slam, which can really wake you up if people next to you are up late. Other than that, great room, decent breakfast, good location.

Nice Stay at Century Plaza

Century Plaza is in an outstanding location with a pretty tasty restuarant attached. I was there when the comedy club was closed (Sunday), so I was unable to experience Yuk Yuks comedy club that is also attached to the hotel. The reception was okay and the rooms were nice and quiet. Although, it did seem like we were charged for every little thing that they could think of (late check-out charges, high parking rates, ect.) Overall, a nice experience!

Seniors

Although the front staff were only just pleasant, the room service ladies were always friendly and obliging. One of the bell hops was most helpful but the others were too laid back and not helpful. Location was good with the hop on/off buss right at the front door. Vancouver is a lovely city.

Great Weekend Getaway!

We needed a weekend away from the cold and snow on the prairies. We flew into Vancouver on a Friday night, took Sky Train downtown then walked to our hotel and were welcomed by the friendly front-desk staff. We received coupons for discounts in the hotel restaurant and spa. We dropped off our bags and were able to walk around downtown to a fabulous Chinese food restaurant. Upon returning to the hotel I made a booking for the spa special that was advertised in the hotel elevator. For $100 I was buffed, tanned and had a pedicure in the spa on Saturday morning. My husband went out for breakfast and to read the paper. The hotel is located perfectly for shopping, walking and dining. You can go to Robson Street, Granville Island, Stanley Park or Yale Town in minutes. The staff helped us with restaurant recomendations and was very helpful. This is my third time staying at this hotel.

One night in Vancouver

Extremely good experience. Lobby and restaurant first class all the way. Rooms are very good size with sitting area, kitchenette and very comfortable bed. Bathroom including shower was excellent. The comedy club located in the hotel gave us excellent entertainment for a very low price.
