Spacious suites and cozy details equal comfort on trendy Robson Street

Recently renovated rooms in the mostly-suite Greenbrier Hotel are large and comfortable with modern decor and amenities to make travelers feel at home. With the trendiest boutiques and hippest restaurants lining the street, guests can spend the day shopping and sampling world cuisine without ever stepping into a cab. Of course, Vancouver presents hundreds of reasons to venture out and many are only minutes from the Greenbrier's central location.

Highlights
  • Excellent location on trendy Robson Street
  • Spacious, newly redecorated suites
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access

 

Rooms

Guestrooms and suites at the Greenbrier Hotel are generously sized and most include kitchenettes, separate sitting areas and large bathrooms.

Features

Robson Street is undoubtedly Vancouver's most famous district, offering incredible shopping, dining and cultural points of interest. Guests of the Greenbrier Hotel stay in the midst of this trendy district and within walking distance to haute boutiques, creative culinary delights and exciting nightlife. But venturing out further couldn't be easier with Vancouver's convenient and well-run transit system. Hop on the skytrain and be across town in minutes. Forested urban parks, beaches on the bay, historic neighborhoods and iconic landmarks are all easily accessed from this excellent, central location. And after a day of exploring the city, guests appreciate home-like comforts in these tasteful suites. To really kick back, make an appointment for an en-suite massage, watch a movie on the large flat-screen TV or connect via complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access.

minimally decent

If you are looking for a clean place JUST to sleep and shower, than this is your hotel. They missed my wake-call by 25 minutes causing me to frantically get ready but thank God I didn't have a flight to catch. Be sure to stay on the higher floors--I got placed on the first floor and the power went out and in the middle of the night when I was sleeping the staff had to come in my room for to switch the pilot light to back on.

Vancouver Trip

We were happy to have a kitchen in the room. Whole Foods was just a few blocks away, so we could eat fruits and vegetables and cook healthy food during our stay. Perfect location! The included breakfast was excellent too!

Fantastic staff and location

My wife and I had a fantastic experience at the Greenbrier. The hotel is right in the middle of downtown, walking distance to everything. The staff is fantastic (especially Amanda) and were incredibly courteous and friendly, even for Canada! The rooms are large and comfortable, though not luxurious. But the room is clean, the place is nice, and the price is fantastic. There was no AC in our room, but we called down and they gave us some fans, which was all we really needed. We stayed for five days and wish we could have stayed more.

Great budget hotel

The staff was excellent; Manuel in particular was most helpful. The hotel shows its age in ways but is very well-kept. The suites are of good size and comfortable. The location is excellent, with Stanley Park a half-dozen blocks west and all of downtown within easy walking distance. There is street noise starting with local business hours during the day, but it's very quiet at night. If you're looking for a decent hotel on a budget, look no further. I would be happy to stay there again.

Basic service, great location, no elevator

We were looking for a relative inexpensive hotel for a family on a budget. The Greenbriar meet those needs, but it is not the hotel for people looking for pampering. The major drawback to the hotel is the lack of air conditioning. We were in Vancouver during a hot spell and you had to have the windows open or roast. Unfortunately Robson street is pretty noisy until after midnight. The Greenbriar also does not have an elevator, so you have to lug your luggage up a couple of flights of stairs. The suite served very well for three (two adults and a child) and we cooked many of our meals. The full-size refrigerator was very handy and there are grocery stores a couple blocks away on Robson St. However, the provided dishes were rudimentary so it was fortunate that we had brought some with us. We had a car with us and paid the extra $20 per day for parking. There is no street parking in the neighborhood and the local public garage closed at night, so plan on paying for parking if you have a car. In summary- if you have ear plugs and you're looking for a relatively inexpensive apartment-like acommodations then the Greenbriar is for you. If you're traveling with someone who is disabled or are looking for a full-service modern hotel, the Greenbriar is not the place for you.

Do not go- very poor amenities & service

We were upgraded to deluxe suite, however to our horror the room was dated, no AC, facing the street and very noisy, shower was a trickle of cold water and no microwave, utensils or silverware in the attached kitchenette.If this is not convincing enough, other reasons not to go include no elevators & no bell boys(we had to haul our luggage to 3rd floor ourselves), people do not answer the phone, you get dried quarters of bagel for breakfast and horrible coffee. Avoid at all costs.

Sad Stay at the Greenbrier

Problem #1 - Immediately upon arriving, lobby was stuffy, carpet was very worn with cigarette burn marks. Problem #2 - Room was exceptionally hot - only way to control air temperature was to open or close the window. Problem #3 - No food Only good thing was the sheets were clean.

Excellent hotel property and staff!

I really got a lot more than I expected for the price. It was a junior suite...which really equated to a one bedroom apt. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It was an absolutely great location, friendly and helpful staff, and the room was clean and modern.
