Great Hotel - Great Idea -- A little work on execution

This was a great hotel. I especially like the high tech slant to the offer. However, they need to work out the kinks in the system. While i was there the device mirroring to the tv was offline and the complimentary tablet was unavailable (for updates or something). The room was really well done. Furniture was very comfortable. The one problem was that the advertisement on spoke of loft style rooms but doesn't say that it is only for certain rooms and explain which rooms where configured this way. The other issue I had was the huge price increase from weekday stays to weekend stays. Most hotels increase but this one increased something like 50% or more. Ended up leaving and staying at a less than stellar alternate.

Excellent New Hotel

We stayed for 3 nights over a weekend in October for the 1/2 marathon. The service was excellent. The room was clean and new. Love the glass shower. There were an espresso machine, hot water kettle, Samsung tablet in the room - a very pleasant surprise. The gym had free weights, which is a plus. The pool, sauna, and spa were very nice after the race. The location was excellent, close to small restaurants, the stadium, arena, but away from the really busy part of downtown. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. I would definitely stay here again for my next visit to Vancouver. Excellent boutique hotel.

Modern and Friendly

Had 3 day stay at the hotel. Very Modern as indicated in photos and other reviews. Nice touch with the turn-down service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They provided great suggestions regarding nearby eateries as the hotel doesnt have a restaurant.

Hotel Blu was Wonderful!

We only stayed one night, but our stay was amazing. The fabulous staff gave suggestions for local restaurants, gave us directions that were easy to follow, gave us a free upgrade to an amazing loft room! The bottom four floors of this building is the hotel, and the remainder of the upper floors are residence apartments. I didn't see residence, and the building and surrounding area was quiet. BC Place was two minutes away, The Orpheum was about 7 minutes away.. Cafe Medina was also 7 min away (yum!). Great location for concerts, athletic events, runs. They offer complimentary bikes for touring.. which was fab! The only down side (which could be a downside for Hotel Blu down the road maintenace wise) was the shower.. I'm vertically challenged, and the shower sprayed over my head (I'm not that short) went out of the tub enclosure and hit the wall and door full on... water every where. I told my husband (who is taller), and he had the same thing happen (not over his head :) but hitting the wall and getting all over the floor). The hotel left chocolates on our pillows with a container of pillow spray (which they did not spray on for us - nice because some people may be sensitive)... and they gave us a bottle of wine. The whole day/night was brilliant... I highly recommend this hotel, and have told five friends already. Thanks Hotel Blu!

Great Stay!

We enjoyed our stay immensely.. the area is great with a large variety of coffee shops and restaurants all within walking distance. While valet is free, parking is an extra $30 per night. There are no restaurants on site but they do provide a very nice breakfast option in the mornings. Nespresso pods in the rooms is a very nice touch (Unlimited availability). The staff was simply AMAZING! Couldn't have asked for better treatment. Highly recommended!!

Mother/Daughter Weekend

Loved everything about this hotel (only negative is the huge price for parking - I figure this is pretty standard for hotels in the area but it still hurts). Since it is new, I fear that word will get out I won't be able to afford the rates in the future. I LOVED the Nespresso machine in the room and the abundance of electrical and USB outlets.

Nice get away

New hotel near BC Place. $30/day to park seemed excessive for the area. We'd definitely stay there again.

Vancouver Vacation

I would have given 5 stars but: parking was $30 a day, no room service (order food to room), no vending machines, and breakfast at the hotel was expensive for the options provided. Parking was $30 a day plus tax which was unexpected. This was my first time in Vancouver so I am not sure if all hotels charge for parking. There is a washer and dryer in the hotel that is free to use, but there was no laundry soap or vending machines to buy any which was inconvenient. No room service for food. But there are several restaurants close by and a McDonald's and 7eleven that are open 24 hrs that are just a few buildings down from the hotel. The elevator works by using your key card,. So you scan your card and it takes you to your room unless otherwise specified. This was a great security feature. If you do not have your card it takes you directly to the lobby. The hotel was close to everything. If you want to walk to shops, food, or entertainment there are several options. We rented a car so we drove as well; however, there are buses and trams that run in to the night if you don't have a car. The staff was friendly, helpful, and fast to take care of any requests or questions. I would definitely stay here again and do reccomend Hotel Blu to anyone wanting a safe, clean, and friendly place ro stay.

Great [NEW] Hotel~

We booked Hotel Blu a few hours before we arrived in Vancouver... not realizing it was a brand new property. We had a wonderful time! Everything was brand new (have I mentioned no one had ever stayed in our room?! :)). We really appreciated the hardwood floors (no carpet!!!) The staff was very friendly and worked hard to make sure everything was in place and that we had a good stay. Great location - walking distance to Gastown (great restaurants, bars, etc) and Robson St for shopping. We would definitely stay at Hotel Blue again!
