We spent 2 nights at l'Hermitage. Comfortable room with king bed, balcony, large bathroom with separate shower and tub. Nice workout space plus outdoor spa and heated lap pool. They provide robes, slippers and spa towels. Several lounge areas with
fireplaces and big screen TVs on same floor as our room. We didn't try the large breakfast served on 5th floor--around $17--but it looked good.
Walked to Stanley Park, shopping, restaurants. Vancouver Art Gallery is close. Very friendly staff and they loan bicycles and umbrellas, too.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Visit the Museum of Anthropology on the UBC Campus. Thousands of cool things, many related to First Nation peoples history. About 30 minute bus ride or $25 cab ride from hotel.
Sent on two amazing dining adventures by Raymond (concierge). Forced me to try some new places that weren't on 'my list' (now new favorites for next trip). Valet and other service also friendly and professional. I would definitely return. Wished
Location is great and within walking distance of many activities. Just be aware that if you go in the summer, there WILL be construction, and it WILL be an absolute nightmare getting to the hotel. Once you're there and safely parked, you'll be
able to walk or take public transportation wherever you need to go. Staff and room were wonderful!
This was a great hotel for the money. The rooms are very nicely finished and you can't ask for a better location (Close to Robson shopping and a short walk to Yaletown). Staff was extremely helpful in finding places to eat and things to do during
our short visit. We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely go back!
“Great Room, Staff, Location, and Dog”

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was right off of Robson and walking distance to pretty much anything else we wanted.
The front desk, bellmen, everyone, was always
courteous, helpful, and professional.
The bed was comfy and room was large enough to have a sitting area.
The outdoor pool was heated so it wasn't too bad to get in even if it was only 50F outside. The hot tub was also a welcome way to relax.
We loved Hippo, the dog concierge. He did help show us to a lounge as our room was getting ready. That was a nice touch.
I could keep gushing but I think it's pretty clear by mine and the other reviews: stay here if you're going to be in Vancouver/
Stayed here for a recent trip 2 days with the wife. we had read the reviews and we were not disappointed. location was excellent, short walk to the canada line and most of downtown. staff were outstanding. Nice value in our particular case.
Overall, compares favorably to places we have stayed worldwide.
Conveniently located to shopping, galleries, clubs, and restaurants, the hotel was a spectacular choice for us. Clean, well-appointed facility; charming room; friendly and helpful staff. The linens were fresh; the bathroom was spacious and well
designed. We will definitely choose this hotel again for any future visits to Vancouver.
Excellent location for exploring downtown Vancouver. We were able to walk to all the sites we were interested in. Restaurant attached to the hotel was fantastic; excellent food, wine and service! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most
comfortable bed I've ever slept in and a large designer bathroom. Really felt pampered.
