A Great place to Stay in Vancouver, BC

Hotel is in a great location. Close to restaurants, museums, parks. Staff was terrific in helping us book a day tour. Great services included in stay like free long distance, unlimited local calls, access to a computer and printer. Hotel is an art museum so interesting art is displayed throughout hotel. I came off of a cruise so this was a great place to "land".

Great Get-away Location

We had a great romantic trip to Vancouver, and the Listel added to the experience. It is a good value for nice rooms and prompt service. O'Douls, the bar/restaurant in the hotel, was a great place to un-wind after the long drive to get to Vancouver. Pricey for what you get, but still it was a wonderful location with live Jazz. Parking at the hotel was $60 for the weekend, but the car is safe.

Really an excellent hotel

Listel Hotel in Vancouver is in an excellent location. I was particularly pleased about the staff. They have a lot of free stuff (a wine reception in the afternoon; an art gallery; an off-site gym at Steve Nash). About the only thing overpriced was parking ($26 + tax per night). If you don't need a car in Vancouver, it's perfect.

Listel rocks

We have stayed in Vancouver several times. This was by far the best value and location. Clean, classy, and quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We also had a great dinner at O'douls. I was skeptical given the name and the fact that it is located in a hotel. It was the best meal we had in Vancouver. Not bad considering we ate at Raincity Grill and Boneta. Great waiter, perfectly prepared mussels, and excellent glass of wine that was recommended by our waiter!

Great location and very comfortable

This is a great hotel in a wonderful location in downtown Vancouver. The room was spacious and clean-- with very modern furnishings. Yet, it was still warm and inviting. I would definitely recommend it.

Robson gets all the attention but head to Denman or even Davie streets. Both are a moderate walk from the hotel and offer equally interesting shopping and dining options.

Great Hotel downtown

I went to vancouver for a conference over the weekend, and stayed at Listel. It is on Robson St in the middle of many eateries and shops, and within walking distance to Stanley park. Great location. One of the best prices for the area. The rooms are a little small but has everything I needed and very comfortable bed. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Great honeymoon hotel!

The bed was the most luxurious place we have ever slept in. The location was conveniently located in the middle of Robson Street. The hotel is in walking distance to many of Vancouver's main attractions. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning was welcoming. There were a lot of dining options. The staff was friendly but not invasive. The maids were chirper.

Plan to spend a few days exploring Stanley Park if you are into hiking and walking the seawall. Watch the dolphin show at the aquarium. Don't bother with Canada Place.
