Empire Landmark is an older hotel and in spots shows its age and AC was marginal. Our room was clean and everything worked...one of the best showers I ever had at a hotel (lots of pressure). Great view of the city from our private balcony and a
great location right near the downtown. Employees were very helpful. Hotel stay by itself was 3 stars but because of the location / price value, I give it 4 stars.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Don't eat in hotel, many great small restaurants within a few blocks and fine dining within a 15 minute walk.
I randomly chose the Empire Landmark Hotel...mainly based on location and price. I wasn't sure what to expect, and because I was traveling with my mother and two daughters, I was hoping for the best. We were all very happy with the hotel. The
staff was very accomodating, the room was spotless, the location was perfect, and the view from our room was outstanding.
The location is about as central as one could get. We were able to explore in every direction on foot. The restaurant at the top of the hotel is remarkable for its view. It revolves around in a total circle with a spectacular view of the city,
water, mountains and sunset. The staff at the restaurant treated us like celebrities which was a pleasent surprise.
The clerk in the lobby helped us set up tours.
We had a good experience.
The hotel is located in a nice location just steps away from major shopping, and a few blocks from the night life. I am willing to stay there again if I can when I am in Vancouver again, which I know I will be. I love you, my sweet Canada!!
