Residence Inn by Marriott Vancouver Downtown

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On a recent visit to the Vancouver area we wanted a centrally located downtown hotel that was modern, clean and good value. Based upon price comparisons and TA reviews we chose the Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown. We weren’t disappointed. Check-in was smooth when we arrived around 10PM and in no time we were inspecting our Skyline Studio room. The room was located on one of the uppermost floors and the view was fabulous, even at night. It had all the space and amenities that 2 people could want to stay comfortable: an easy chair, sofa, coffee table, work desk, queen bed, kitchen facilities (coffee maker, mike, huge fridge), nice bathroom, dresser, and flat-screen TV. The shower good pressure and the bed was super-comfy, we both slept really well. Parking wasn’t included in the base rate but came in at a reasonable (for downtown Vancouver) rate of $23/day including tax. Finding the underground lot for the first time can be tricky but the front desk gave us good directions. One parking feature we really appreciated: you retain your parking privileges till 4 PM on checkout day, so if you have a late flight or business during the day, you won’t have to pay an extra day’s fee. The included breakfast was one of the best I’ve ever seen at a hotel. The dining area was huge, the selection as wide as it gets and the food quite tasty. For those who like to tank up for the day on nutritious food, this is the place to go. The lobby was bright and inviting and the front-line staff just couldn’t do enough for us. It was a great 2-day experience; no complaints and all smiles. We rate this hotel at 5 stars out of 5 and would return.

The room had everything we could ask for and more. I use Residence Inn's frequently for business travel. This time for a weekend off in Vancouver. Great location. Great staff. I want to thank the staff for the extra help in mending a pair of broken eyeglasses. Already planning another stay when the weather gets nicer. Thanks.

Great room and very comfortable. Walking distance to some nice downtown restaurants and bars. Friendly staff. Free breakfast was ok/satisfactory. As with most Marriott’s the staff are always outstanding.

I Love the convenience of having a kitchen in a city like Vancouver! I don't want to eat out for every meal, and this room with an efficiency kitchen allows you to choose the days you want to visit restaurants. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dinnerware etc. There is a grocery market about 4 blocks down Davie Street which has a great selection of gourmet foods too bring back. The hotel rooms are very nice with comfortable beds and ample storage. Transportation: Buses are 1 block away with access to pretty much everything. I did find the pool lacking though, with the heat consistently set lower than optimal. A discussion with management didn't change that situation. Otherwise it was a great stay. Final note, Marriott Platinum Elite status didn't seem to help here; my room selection was always limited to average locations in 4 stays over several years.

The Residence Inn is a great place to stay. The room we stayed in was big and had a kitchenette which made dinner easy. It is close to shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. The pool was too cold for us and the hot tub was crowded. The breakfast had a wide range of food. It was the best hotel breakfast that I have ever had. Overall the Residence Inn is a great place to stay that has everything you need.

We stayed here for a recent visit and were not disappointed. The rooms are large, clean and quiet. The (free) hot breakfast had a lot of variety and my personal favorite was hot milk to add to my coffee (!!). The front desk service was very good and the staff was quite helpful. The pool was a bit chilly but nonetheless it was a nice perk! The on site (not free) parking was a nice thing as well. Its about 10 minutes from Stanley Park and very convenient to Yaletown. If we were there again, we would definitely stay.

We recently spent 10 nights at the hotel and it worked very well for us. The room was well laid out and had everything we needed for breakfast and lunch in the room. It had a full kitchen and we could have cooked simple meals but chose not to. The needed utensils were all there and the fridge and microwave were good sized. We were on the 16th floor and enjoyed the view of the city and the construction crane that swung past our window occasionally. We were on a high enough floor that construction noise was not a problem. The staff worked hard to answer all of our questions about the city and beyond. They were knowledgeable and easy to talk to. They certainly rated 5 stars. It was an expensive stay but we were there over new year's eve so its not surprising.

Needed an overnight stay flying into Vancouver before driving up to Whistler the next day. Flight was delayed over 3 hours, so it was 2am by time we checked in. Everything was in order and no delay checking in. Standard breakfast buffet with eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt and waffles the next morning was very good. Left behind an item in the room and housekeeping retrieved it and I was able to pick up upon my return to Vancouver. Would be a great place for an extended stay with refrigerator.

This was our layover stay of 4 night's to see the sights of Vancouver and relos before we hit whistler. In the end it also turned out to be the best value and comfortable hotel we stayed at. Rooms were sized well for a family of four. Kitchen with a stove and full size fridge was great for eating in. The rate included breakfast which had a good size of selections, and even when it got quite busy the staff were there to offer other areas to eat. The pool and spa was great for the kids, gym could have had a rower or a few more benches, but was never packed and adequate. Quite close to everything with staff always accommodating. A 4+ stars from me.

There is a lot to be said for having a hotel room that is more like an apartment. The full size fridge and kitchen mean you can really enjoy Vancouver if you are here with kids or for a longer stay. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. They’ll have a basket of umbrellas to offer you at the door in case you forgot yours. The free breakfast is everything you could ask for... the food is well prepared and tasty.... there is a lot of variety. The location is great. Just far enough from Robson to be quieter but close enough to everything that you’ll still walk.
