Wonderful experience in the West End

The two of us arrived at different times and from very different directions, meeting at the hotel. This didn't faze the staff, who made sure everything worked smoothly. All the staff suggestions for activities and meals were superb--they really know the city. The location on Robson was perfect for us, with tons of restaurants, window shopping, an easy walk to Stanley Park and English Beach. All in all, wonderful!

Great hotel in a great location

Stayed at the hotel during the Jazz Festival and was treated to terrific jazz at the O'Doul's in the hotel. Contemporary art throughout the hotel was tasteful and interesting. Staff was incredibly professional and helpful, even when they were busy. Located on the edge of the busiest shopping stretch on Robson St., so close to stores, coffee, crepes and restaurants. Loved the free coffee service in the morning: french press coffee delivered to your room at the time you select. Would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat!

Great Hotel in a Fantastic City

Vancouver was the perfect mix of city life and outdoor activity for us: fantastic restaurants, historical areas, museums, shows/concerts, shopping, nightlife, and a phenomenal public transit system side by side with whale watching tours, temperate rain forests, Stanley Park, dramatic canyons, gorgeous scenery, etc. A phenomenal city - and the Listel is right in the middle of all of it.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

If you don't mind covering a little distance on foot, there are dozens of incredible restaurants within walking distance (especially on Denman St.), and this is a city known for its fine food. A quick cab ride will get you around too, but it's worth the walk to experience the area a little more personally.

Unique hotel in a fun location

We loved the location of the hotel on Robson St. It was very convenient to use public transportation from here. We absolutely did not need a car! Tons of shopping, restaurants, and people watching! We walked to Stanley Park and the beach from here as well. The staff was very polite and accomodating, even anticipating our questions...We felt very safe and secure and liked the fact that our hotel keys were required to use the elevator. Our room was extremely quiet even though the restaurant had jazz music each night. We would not recommend this hotel for families with children - the children would find it too boring. Our only disappointment was that our room had only 1 queen bed and not 2 queens or a king as our confirmation indicated. Not a very big deal in the overall scheme of things....

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

By walking 3 blocks to a 7-11 store, we were able to purchase a Day Pass for the transit system for $9. They are good for buses, sky train, and sea bus and are very easy to use. EVERYONE is so polite in this city - they offer help if they think you need it!!

We got a room with two queens for 4 adults to share. It was bit small. Nice television, well stocked bar and goodies. Complimentary coffee service in the AM. We went to museums, shopping, restaurants. We would have liked more info in the room on restaurant options. Taxis were easy to get.

Don't waste your time

Romantic weekend in Vancouver, but Hotel Listel wasn't anything special. I would pay a little more next time to stay at a nicer hotel.
