Hotel was very conveniently located

Hotel was very conveniently located right in the heart of the town with a skytrain station just 5 mins walk away and frequent bus services passing the hotel. The area might be a little too lively for some tastes and noise at night might concern some especially if you are just over the night club attached to the hotel but it didn't bother me. The free wifi worked well.

Nice Hotel, Sleazy Location

The room was nice, the beds very comfortable, and everything modern, attractive, and working properly. The hotel is located in a trashy part of town, with noisy bars right downstairs and all over the block. Many of the noisemakers stay at the hotel, run in and out of rooms slamming doors all night, and talk loudly in the halls. Certainly not a quiet spot!

If you like noisy sports bars and boisterous, unruly college crowds this is the location for you.

Very good

This hotel suited me fine.I found the staff friendly and helpful,15 min walk to waterfront but a bus stops outside. Plenty of places to eat at around the corner in Davie st. Good value.

great value

For a hotel in a convenient area of downtown Vancouver, the Howard Johnson in Downtown Vancouver was a great value. Clean room/facilities, very nice and accomodating staff, good restaurant right next to lobby.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Multiple stops nearby for the Vancouver Trolley, an excellent way to see Vancouver's sites. A bit pricey, $35/ticket, but good for all day: can get off at various sites and back on at any point. Goes to Chinatown, Canada Place, the Aquarium, Stanley Park, etc. The tour guides are friendly, informative and fun. I highly recommend it!

Good location

I choose the Grandville HJ's for walking distance to the start and finish of the 2007 Vancouver marathon. Excellent places to eat within blocks of the motel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. clean rooms.

Quiet and Friendly!

The staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. It's in a busy neighborhood but the room I had was on the interior and was extremely quiet. It's just around the corner from Davie Street which has many quaint coffee shops and breakfast places and its a 20 minute walk to the Harbor. Really a great value!
