Not the worst nor the best

The staff was friendly and courteous. The room tended to be noisy due to other guests partying at 2 am and others fighting at early morning hours. The room was clean and well serviced.

Couple retreat

The hotel room was spotless. The personnel were all friendly and nice. The bed was very comfortable. The only things that could have been better is the room was too small and the walls are thin. There were other occupants that were making some noises that should have been for private ears only. The hotel is in a good location. Easy access to any parts of the city.

Pretty Good for Downtown Vancouver

Good place, very friendly housekeeping staff, reasonably friendly front desk staff. Only real complaint was parking, which would have been something like $22 per night, and had vehicles parked in such a way as to prevent nearly all from leaving... not my cup of tea. Instead parked on Howe street just north of the Hotel for free from 10pm to 9am the next morning.

Ramada

Location is great close to downtown mall, lots of restaurants, businesses etc. Hallways were the worst part, the floors creak, musty smell etc. our room on the back was quiet, staff were pleasant and helpful re transportation directions advice etc. Probably good we were there during the week.

Just ok

The price was fair. The hallway and room smelled like musk or mold. The bar next to the hotel is a good spot. We stayed there during the week, but apparently during the weekend Granville St turns into a great night life spot, since they close off the street to cars. We missed out on that. During the week there were alot of bums outside. I was not too impressed. We would have preferred to stay in the "Gas Town Section" of the city. Overall: Not bad, but we would have selected a different part of the city if we could do it over.

Location is this hotel's best asset!

In the heart of downtown Vancouver on Granville street, this hotel is at a super convenient location and is in walking distance from everything. What is not within walking distance, you can connect to the Metro or bus with ease. The staff is attentive and friendly. The rate we got was superb! We booked months in advance and stayed over Christmas and New Year's and we only paid about $65 per night. The room had no view (just the other side of the building), but the room itself was simple, comfortable, and had just what we needed. The furniture is modern with dark woods and granite tops, so it has a high end look and feel. The double beds were very comfortable with feather top blankets. The large LCD TV was nice, but I will never understand why hotels make the investment to have nice HDTV LCDs but no High Def. channels. They do not offer movie rental service or anything special through the TV, just about 40 standard def. channels. But hey, who is staying at a hotel to watch TV, right? So not a big deal. There's no in room safe, which I always prefer when traveling for a long trip where I might be carrying a good amount of currency. But again, this isn't a big deal. There was a restaurant (Irish pub) in the hotel, but we never ate there. I suppose it's convenient and it looked like they had a breakfast special. There are an abundance of cafes (Blenz is my favorite!) and restaurants nearby the hotel, especially on Davie street which is around the corner. We dined on Davie street on most days and really enjoyed the convenience and variety. Also, regarding Davie street: if you are up for a 20 min walk, you can go directly to Stanley park by foot via Davie street - really nice! One negative thing - there is a nightclub next door to the hotel that the hotel owns and on Thursday through Saturday nights expect to hear loud thumping bass until at least 2AM. Fortunately for my partner and I, we were usually awake anyway at that time so it didn't matter. I just find it irresponsible for a hotel that owns a nightclub to knowingly expose their hotel guests to noise pollution that they have control over - that's not good service. We were on the 3rd floor and not next to the club and still heard the bass. Overall, a great hotel - you get what you pay for. This is not a 5 star hotel, so don't expect it to be more than what it is. However, it is a simple, comfortable, and clean place to stay with a location that is second to none.
