Entertainment District

If you want to be in the "heart" of downtown and the entertainment district, this is Grand Central. This was the old Hotel California now renovated as low end "boutique" accommodation. Granville street can be an eye opener and the location puts you into the middle of things but a great place to people watch. Beautiful parks and the water front, in fact everything are in short walking distance. Don't bring a car, use super easy public transportation and have some fun.

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!

Great, this is my second visit.

Good Staff, Room is good, excellent price. Location is so so, it is Granville street after all, there are a few adult shops, homeless, pawn shops around but on the other side there are a lot of coffee shops and little restaurants. I was traveling by my self so it was OK, family maybe I would find something else.

Nice staff, great location, BUT!

Staff is nice and the location is great... You could walk to everything. The noise on the other hand is unbearable .... And the hotel hallways are not clean and have a smell similar to bleach. There is also a construction site next door. The restaurant downstairs "Wings" has nothing to do with wings or even food...

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.
