Lovely Stay!

My family had never been to Canada before, so I was looking for a central location to stay. I was beyond impressed by the Granville Island Hotel. The location couldn't be beat. We loved that the market was right there to walk to and the hotel was cute, quaint, and comfortable. LOVED IT! Can't wait to come back. The front staff was very nice and helpful in exchanging money and giving directions. Thanks again GI Hotel Staff!

Take taxis! if you have a bigger group +3 people, it will probably be cheaper than finding somewhere to park if you're trying to go somewhere close

Nice place to stay on Granville Island

Very nice hotel with a great Sunday brunch. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. The rooms look newly remodeled and nicely appointed. It is an additional $15 per day for parking. I don't understand why they would put their fitness club in with the hot tub. It was extremely hot and humid and hard to work out.

Great hotel in great location

Stayed here two times, once with kids. Great experience both times. The hotel itself is lovely, and the restaurant is fabulous with amazing views of the city. Also near a nice walking trail along the water, a public market with nice shops, and the fun aquabus ferries. Hotel staff always very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
