Chic, modern accommodations in a historic downtown boutique hotel

The Moda is part of Vancouver's history, but there's nothing old-fashioned about its contemporary decor and modern amenities. Some of Vancouver's top interior designers created the sophisticated look of the guest rooms. High-quality linens, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi also help create a contemporary atmosphere in this heritage hotel. The downtown location, close to shopping, sightseeing, and business venues, allows for a good old-fashioned stroll or catching the ultra modern skytrain to get where one needs to go.

Highlights
  • Heritage building updated and modernized for contemporary comfort
  • Beautiful Uva Wine Bar on the premises
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access
Rooms

Modern decor is expertly blended with the historic nature of this intimate hotel. Built in 1908, the updated and remodeled contemporary space still showcases exposed 100-year-old mosaic-tile floors in the lobby and bathrooms, 80-year-old hardwood floors and the original lobby ceiling with dramatic crown moldings. But the sleek palette with bold accents, ultra-modern furnishings and flat-screen televisions are anything but old. Linens with high thread counts, specialized Skoah skincare products, and free Wi-Fi Internet access also keep guests in the current century.

Features

Experience a little bit of Vancouver's history while staying in modern comfort in the heart of the entertainment and culture district. Walk to the Vancouver Art Gallery or the BC Place stadium. Take a short cab ride to Robson Street's world-class shopping and dining. Ride Canada Line's excellent public transportation to get nearly anywhere in the city and beyond. The hotel's serene and stylish Uva Wine Bar offers top wines, cocktails and imported beers. Cibo Trattoria, next door to the hotel, offers Italian fare made with fresh and local ingredients.

Very nice downtown hotel that's close to everything

The Moda Hotel is conveniently located in downtown. It's a short walk from the Air Train-downtown stop that brings you in from the airport. I've been coming here yearly for trips to visit my family in the city and it's consistently a great place to stay. Take note that this is a city hotel and noise on the street can be heard if you have a room facing the activity below. The hotel is starting to show it's a age a bit inside the rooms but overall is still a stylish option.

Vancouver Trip

The hotel had nice restaurants and a wine bar. Room was bit tired. The shower did not have much in the way of water pressure. The AC-heater was a bit wild too as I awoke in the night once too cold and another time too warm. Staff were very nice.

Great value! Nice boutique hotel.

This place met all of our needs. We had never been to Vancouver so we wanted to see and do as much as we could in a short amount of time. The hotel is in an historic building that has been renovated and modernized. A great place to stay for a more local feel of the city. It was walking distance to many of the main sights of Vancouver. Lots of places to eat nearby. Near Robson St. and the theater district and about a 30 minute walk to Gas Town and Canada Place. The library was only a few blocks away, which is where the tour buses and trolleys stop for seeing the rest of the city and nearby attractions. The staff was great. They were very friendly and had lots of tips for places to eat and things to see and do. The room was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed. Very large bathroom. Modern furnishings. Free wi-fi and free local and US calls was a nice plus. Only had 2 minor complaints. 1) a slight musty odor in the room, probably because it is in an historic building and 2) the walls were thin so you could hear people in the hallways. However, there was not much noise in the hallways so it wasn't an issue. Would definitely stay there again!

Good, not Great

Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was on the small side. Looked clean, but the windows had been left open and the view was of a semi-flooded rooftop from next door. I'm assuming it was because the windows had been left open but the room was quite smelly when I first checked-in; strong odor of mildew. After closing windows the smell seemed somewhat better. Overall for the location and low price it was Okay.

Really Good Farm to Table Hotel Restaurant

Great location just a couple of blocks from Vancouver Center metro station. There is no fitness room, but you can easily walk it off in Vancouver.

Ideal for a city break

Great location in downtown Vancouver- easy access to public transport if needed but central enough to walk to most places- gas town, Stanley Park and Canada Place just 10 min walk away (for shuttle buses up to Capilano, Grouse Grind, Whistler etc) and just one street over from Granville St (lots of shops, cafés etc) Staff very friendly and room nice although the hair dryer did not work, and there were a few chips in the paint (corners etc) but more obvious due to the minimal decoration etc. and had to keep connecting to the wifi, just little quibbles really- on the whole very good hotel.

All great! (with a minor electrical inconvenience)

We loved the Moda! It's quaint, boutique, friendly and includes on premises the cutest cocktail bar (with amazing mixologists and home-made extracts), a lovely restaurant where we at a gourmet breakfast (Italian bistro dinner sounded good too, but we didn't make it), a casual pizza joint we didn't get to, and a liquor store. The staff was incredibly helpful (and I feel totally guilty I forgot to tip the concierges who helped us until it was too late). The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The double windows protect you from much of the street noise. My only complaints were there were only two electrical outlets and we learned by experience that you have to leave both the bathroom light on (after pushing a reset on the switch) and the main room light switch on (but you can turn off the light at the lamp) to charge your electronics. That was a pain and it would have been nice to be warned not to turn off the switches. Also, there was some bar noise in the middle of the night, although it didn't keep me awake. Not sure if it was from their bar(s) or one nearby. (We faced Smithe St.)

Value for money in downtown area

Location is excellent, close to everything. For someone without a car, it is so close to the skytrain subway. You can walk to everywhere. I stayed for 4 nights and found the bed was comfortable and the room is clean. The hotel is dated ,but the staff is extremely helpful. I asked for a kettle and he brought it to me immediately. The room is small for 2 persons, but considering the location and the price, it is real value for money. I will stay again next time I am in town.
