Convenient location with professional & friendly staff. Clean and spacious room with city view. Rooftop access with sauna, exercise room & kitchen/dining area.

Modern, friendly staff, beautiful view, and walking distance to main points of Vancouver.

Our Deluxe two queen bed room was pretty nice and spacious. It has a small kitchenette with lots, pans, utensils for light cooking and a fridge. It is also conveniently located to major bus stops so you can travel anywhere from the hotel (Univ British Columbia, waterfront, Granville Island). It is also walking distance to Granville Island, though for some reason Google Maps keep telling us to take the bus.

It was great and good location for our purpose . Thank you

Clean, comfortable, convenient to Granville Island.

About 6 blocks from Metro and 1 block from bus stop. Room was worn. Many outlets did not work. It was basically clean.

the rooftop full kitchen and deck with a gym and sauna

Nice staff and comfortable room. Would've appreciated free parking and shuttle service to cruise ships.

They don't use fitted sheets and the smaller sheets they use simply move off and soon you are on the mattress. Sort of gross as I assume many have this issue. I have never seen a place not use fitted sheets over the mattress. Also the air conditioner is very loud. So much that you need to shut it off, but since the windows do not open you are then hot. They also have three controllers for the air conidtioner but they are not integrated so one does a fan, another on the other side of the room does the temp, etc. We won't stay there again.

Great hotel near Skyline train. Wonderful staff! Nice rooms. It does get noisy on Saturday nights but it didn't bother me.

Location is ideal. Reception was pleasant. Restaurant in the building

There was nothing to like. Power outage caused extreme heat and uncomfortable conditions. Desk clerks were clueless and rooms were terrible!!

Prostitutes galore. It’s ok if you don’t mind. Soon rooms face wall with blinding illumination. It’s ok if you don’t mind....

Hotel seemed nice from lobby but rooms were not as nice as I was expecting. Parking in the garage was extra. Some outlet covers were broke. It looked like an old hotel that had some upgrades. Walking distance from food places.

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing GEC Granville Suites, and thank you for your feedback. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience during your stay. It came to us as a surprise that there was no fitted sheet since we usually use them in all our rooms. We found out that our new housekeepers attended your room. We will make sure to provide more training, so this does not happen again. Thank you for letting us know. Kind regards, GEC Granville Suites.
