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.

Nice area, clean rooms, friendly staff

The best part of the Moda hotel was the friendly and helpful staff. I also liked that there was a great restaurant attached to the lobby of the hotel. On the downside, the room was pretty small....although it was spotless. The view was of the roof. The location of the hotel was great and Stanley Park was within walking distance. All and all I enjoyed our stay at the Moda hotel.

Good, except for the noise during day

Construction next door very noisy, but at reasonable hours (after 9am). Well located, clean, well appointed in the price range. Parking is difficult. Reception staff was polite and helpful.

great hotel for the money

Moda Hotel in downtown vancouver was very stylish. The staff was really nice. They kept the room clean every day. The location was super convenient...walking distance to everything! But, because the summer weather was warm and humid, the lack of A/C in the hotel room themselves and the hallway, was disappointing. We had guests who met us in the hotel comment on how hot the hallway was. Even though the room had fans, some of the guests I was with said it wasn't enough. Also, because of the downtown location, it was difficult to sleep because the of street noise. Sometimes, closing the windows did not help. One of the guests I stayed with had to buy earplugs for complete silence so she can sleep through the night.

Cool place

We liked the room and hotel. It had nice style and was very clean. The only downsides were that it was a little noisy at night (not too bad) from outside traffic, also, it was difficult to figure out where to park as their parking was closed do to recent breakins.

Great Value

This place is nothing extravagant, but for the price I paid it was an excellent value and in a perfect location downtown Vancouver - walking distance to Gastown, convention center, etc. Staff was always friendly and helpful, the place is clean with a historic feeling. I would definitely stay here again, particularly at the price I paid (~$135 US with taxes and everything).

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Check out Stanley Park. Beautiful! I walked from hotel, but a short cab or bus ride would give you more time to hike the trails and paths.

Fun, but modern piece of history

Stay was very good at the hotel, the only concern that I had, was it was very difficult to control the temperature of our room. The location is great and there is plenty near by. This was my second stay there, and I plan to make another.

Minimalist Boutique in a good location

We were exploring Vancouver for the weekend and wanted a place that was central to good food, attractions, and nightlife. Moda was clean and well decorated. If you can, ask for a room in the back (overlooking a parking lot) because you will not hear as much noise from the street. The wine bar is nice, but a tad pricey. Two cons: 1) the walls are thin, so you can hear noise from the hallway. 2) parking is not free or included.

Check out phnom penh in Chinatown if you like Vietnamese food! We went at 8:30 on a Monday night and there was a line of people waiting. Try the Vietnamese rice cakes (bahn bot chien) and the rice dessert with coconut milk for something different. Delicious and such a great price for amazing food in a hole-in-the-wall sort of place.
