Reasons not to stay here.

I have been to other Century Plaza properties and have always been impressed. The hotel is 1 block away from a church. The rooms have a small kitchenette, there are no cooking utensils, you have to contact housekeeping for them. My wife prefers feather pillows, and there weren't any in the room so we called housekeeping and asked for some. They never brought them and never bothered to call. The walls had scratches in the paint in some areas, the carpets had stains, the toilet didn't flush properly, and the shower leaked enough water on the floor to wet the carpet outside the bathroom. The linen's were not big enough to adequately cover the mattress or pillows, internet access was $9 per day and parking was $15 per day. On the lighter side, the hotel is 3 or 4 blocks from the big mall and Robson street. If you like to walk, Stanley Park is 20 minutes walk away. If you like to go to the spa and comedy club, then maybe the hotel is OK, but I was very disappointed. We ended up checking out 2 days early.

Not exactly what it seemed

I expected an updated, European-type room and what I got was not exactly that. The lobby was upgraded and looked clean and bright. The rooms had old furniture and fixtures and reminded me of a much cheaper hotel. Also my room was a 1 bedroom (upgrade) and looked just like a reformatted apartment. The furniture was old and the bed was okay. My room had 1 air conditioner in the living room and nowhere else and so in the middle of the night the bedroom got VERY hot. We opened the windows and let in all the noise that was outside...including he yelling and cheering from the comedy club next door. The bathroom had chips in the bathtub and was small. I expected a European-type upgraded room and really just got a multi-room motel like feel. The $102 I paid was fair for the great location but don't expect a "nice" hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful, though, to their credit. Definitely had an apartment building feel on the floors though.

not quite as expected

I upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. There was only one small tv in the living room and none in the bedroom. In addition, for $9cad, we bought wireless internet access for the night. The signal was very weak and cut out frequently in the living room but was strong in the bedroom. When I wanted to watch tv and my partner wanted to be online, we had to be in separate rooms. The parking charge ($17cad per day) was higher than other similar hotels in the same area of downtown Vancouver. Overall, I was disappointed in this hotel and see no reason to stay here again when other nearby hotels offer more convenience for the price. On a positive note, the beds were very comfortable!

Other choices....

Be aware this hotel is next door to one of Vancouver's largest hospitals so expect loud emergency vehicle sounds outside your window. Second, $20 per day for hotel parking is over the top. Look elsewhere

Kinda ghetto

Great location, nice lobby and restaurants (although somewhat stark feeling). The rooms were very outdated and a bit shabby. The air was difficult to control, leaving us freezing some of the time and sweating the rest. The staff were mediocre at best. It was a very good location for walking to Robson and other major sites.

Weekend Getaway

The hotel was an overall good value. Hotel staff was very friendly. The room was dated. Great view of the mountain peaks. Noisy because it's right next to a hospital. The parking garage was scary because there appears to be frequent break ins because of broken glass on the floor. The beds are also very uncomfortable.

Great location but rooms do not match the lobby

This place is in a great location and the lobby/bar is excellent. The rooms do not match what you get in the lobby though. A little older, dated, but overall clean. I was expecting more for the money but you are paying for location. The parking is extra, and there is only free wifi in the lobby.

"Nice" but not that nice

Hotel is in a great location for going to places in the "heart" of downtown Vancouver. The hotel was clean, reasonably comfortable and the decor was very modern or post modern in design. However, the room and the hotel in general looked like it was old construction. The doors and the paint had nicks and scratches throughout the hotel. The water faucet in the shower was old and looked like it was about to fall off the wall (screws loose). While showering, the water never stayed the same temperature and kept switching between hot and cold. Hallways smelled like an industrial chemical plant. In addition, I payed something like $170.00 to stay at this hotel. Considering the price paid, this place was a terrible institution. No roaches!
