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.

Rooms

Guestrooms and suites at the Greenbrier Hotel are generously sized and most include kitchenettes, separate sitting areas and large bathrooms. All guestrooms and suites have a flat-screen TV, pillow-top mattress and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. Club suites have spectacular views of Coal Harbor.

Property 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.

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.

Great room for the price

Hotel layout and floor plan was excellent however, it could use a touch up. Let's say the room had a lot of experience. Walls and appliances looked like they have been around for a while. For the price and quality matched up. Would stay there again.

Nice large rooms.

Nice large clean rooms at the center of town. Convenient basement parking and helpful staff. Within walking distance to everything and a great value for the money! I would go back with no hesitation.

Affordable

I had to pay for parking. That wasn't great but the staff were very kind and were of great help! Noisy location so sleeping was a bit difficult at night. Other than that, restaurants and shopping malls were of walking distance. I wouldn't necessarily stay here again unless I don't find a better deal elsewhere.

Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad

Perfectly average hotel. Location was good, about 6 blocks from the Vancouver City Centre train station. Room was big and clean enough, could use an update and remodel though. No AC, radiator seemed to be set to full blast with no way to change it, so we ended up having to open the window a bit to let the room cool off. Bed was stiff but not unbearably so. Would stay here again if it were cheap enough.

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.
