Downtown luxury boutique hotel is elegant gateway to Robson Street

No luxurious detail has been missed at this gorgeous downtown hotel. Guests here find the finest accommodations, distinctive amenities, and courteous, attentive service in a fantastic location just beyond chic Robson Street. There are few places anywhere lovelier for a cup of coffee than the L'Hermitage Vancouver's terrace garden. And guests wonder how they have lived without the outdoor saltwater lap pool, kept heated to a perfect 15 C.

Highlights
  • Complimentary bike rentals
  • Breakfast on the gorgeous garden terrace
  • Outdoor heated saltwater lap pool

Quiet and clean

The st aff and the rooms are the high points of this hotel. Exceptionally professional and friendly staff combined with a very comfortable and quiet room made our stay here very enjoyable. The location is convenient for most everything downtown, and Stanley Park is a quick bike trip away. There are plenty of restaurants close by, and the Medina. Cafe, a wonderful breakfast place, is moving in next door. The room prices are higher than we would prefer, but Vancouver is an expensive place to visit overall.

Best in Vancouver

Nice hotel---staff----location-----many places to buy food and restourants close by. Wish breakfast was free or less costly and PM wine and food would have been nice touch----many hotels do this now. Concierge VERY helpful setting up trips and getting around town.

Victoria and gardens---take the EARLY bus to the gardens---normal arrival is too late and shadows spoil the views. It is a LONG day---and the bus we went on was very uncomfortable.

Nice hotel with french accents

For a quick one night stay in Vancouver, I was pleasantly surprised with L'hermitage. Friendly staff, very nice room with a roomy bath. The location is near Robson and Granville, so close to heart of the City and a short walk down to hip Yaletown.

Great Hotel, Location, and Staff

“Great Room, Staff, Location, and Dog” Oct 24, 2011 sfjonathan 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/

Great Deal!

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!

Convenient to sites, shopping, restaurants

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.
