Hotel was well situated. Consierge and hotel staff were quite good. I was also impressed with the Late night staff and early-morning shift staff which usually are not as responsive Room was large with both a bath and a shower. There was a place for luggage with the light that was very helpful to ...
As I arrived late in the day, traveling from Siem Reap to Vancouver, it was so nice to stay at Fairmont Vancouver Airport In-Terminal Hotel for the night, as I had to wait anyway for my flight in the morning to Calgary. I'm not one to wait and sleep on airport seats in my own country, so it was a ...
This hotel is convenient to restaurants, activities, etc and we were able to walk to most of the things we did, but when necessary the hotel got us a taxi or provided information immediately and were always friendly and polite.Room clean and all needs provided. But, most of all, the hotel is pretty ...
The hotel gym was so awesome! Having a full blown CrossFit set up, machines, pool, hot tub, and pool service! The restaurant, Yew, was hands down one of the best meals we have had an our waiter went above and beyond! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel!
We are a family of four (kids 12 & 16). We stayed at the Delta for 5 days. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. I can't say enough about them. We ended up upgrading to a room with two queen beds. The first room was fine, but we just wanted to be more comfortable. We almost booked a hotel ...
Overall good location, friendly staff and comfortable room. No frills, older hotel with a odd smell in the hallways sort of like cheap cleaner or off brand purfume but otherwise an ok place for a low price. Got what I paid for.
I think I was disappointed because I was expecting a 'ramada' hotel but they are an independently run hotel. All I can say is think: emphasis on 'limited'. The building and all it's furniture and fixtures are old and worn out. The rooms are clean and you can see the wear everywhere. There was indeed ...
Nice hotel in a busy Richmond BC location. Restaurant scene is great with a lot of Asian restaurants and walking distance to Aberdeen Center. Clean hotel rooms with very hospitable staff. We were able to check in very early in the morning since a room was available.
Situated on the west coast of Canada, the city of Vancouver is the third-largest in the country, with a reputation for great outdoor activities, top museums like the Science World, and a feel for gastronomy ably demonstrated by its seafood and farm-sourced restaurants. Its epic, pine-forested landscapes and the Canadian Rockies have earned the city the nickname “Hollywood North,” with everything from “The X-Files” to the Twilight Saga filmed around here.
Set against the might of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver offers plenty of adventures for the outdoor enthusiast. Beaches allow the opportunity for everything from swimming to body boarding. Locals know to head to Wreck Beach for sunbathing, while you can take a boat out on the deep blue waters for world-class fishing and scuba diving. Check out Kitsilano Beach for a few rounds of volleyball or to introduce the kids to the 360° views from the splash-haven of heated Kits Pool.
A short 25-minute drive will get snow bunnies to the North Shore peaks of the Rockies and Grouse Mountain, a popular snowboarding and skiing spot, with unparalleled views of the coastal landscape and glass city below. Take the Skyride to the top of the mountain, enjoy a ride on the mountain zip-line and stop by the Grizzlies at Bear Discovery.
Grouse Mountain also offers a challenging hiking trail called the Grouse Grind. This 1.8-mile trail on the face of the mountain is known to locals as “Mother Nature's Stairmaster.”
For less intense activity, take a walk down the Sea Wall. Located at Stanley Park and approximately 13 miles long, this popular paved path is laid along Vancouver's waterfront. Perfect for a casual stroll or jog, the path will guide you around Lost Lagoon and will take you past multiple parks and beaches, including English Bay. From here, you can cross Lions Gate Bridge into North Vancouver and head to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, taking a walk across the forest from one of the seven footbridges suspended 100 feet above the ground.
First-timers to the area will get a kick out of staying in the thick of things at a hotel in Downtown Vancouver. Bunking in the heart of the city gives easy access to the high-end shopping on Robson St. as well as the bars, restaurants and clubs of the famed Granville St. Many of the Vancouver hotels located downtown also offer meeting spaces, computer access and Wi-Fi for your business traveling needs.
For an enchanting experience, guests will want to stay in the charming, historic Gastown. Make sure you stop by and check out the famous steam clock, located at the corner of Water St. and Cambie St. A short, two-block stroll west will take you to the Top of Vancouver, which provides a panoramic view of the sprawling city from an observation deck.
Vancouver is located on the coast of the Great Northwest and experiences moderate weather and temperatures. Because Vancouver is located at sea level and enjoys mild winters, snow within the city limits is less common than in the higher areas such as North and West Vancouver or Burnaby Mountain. To increase your odds of avoiding a downpour, visit Vancouver from May to September. As an added bonus, visiting in spring will give you the chance to see the beauty of the bright pink cherry blossom trees that pepper the streets in full bloom.
Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is located in nearby Richmond, BC, and offers direct flights to the US and worldwide. YVR is located along the Skytrain line, which transports you from the airport directly to Downtown Vancouver in approximately 45 minutes. The airport also offers access to car-rental agencies for a quicker drive Downtown. If you'sre driving over the border, the closest city is Seattle, at around a three--and-a-half hour trip, taking the northward bound I-5.
Rooms were immaculate with extra cozy bed. The couch in the lower part of the loft room was a little stiff, but not a big deal. Staff was friendly and helpful with directions around downtown. Location was excellent as well, with most amenities within walking distance or near a Skytrain station. The pool/gym/laundry area was kept in excellent and comfortable condition as well. Beautiful city to explore, and this hotel made our stay even more relaxing and enjoyable. Did not try the breakfast lounge, as it was on the higher price end of the scale, and we wanted to try other local experiences for dining. Perfect wifi. Very fun rooms, and relaxing patio outside room. Quite, modern and great for traveling families as well.
Very nice accommodation, street noise during the night though.
Close to shops and away from downtown. Hotel is a little dated but the elevators were really fast. Staff were great, room was very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good but it was the same everyday except sausage and bacon were alternated. Paper plates were also used instead of ceramic. Parking garage is safe well LT but a little tight around the corners. Overall a good place to stay.
The main reason why I booked this hotel was that it was within walking distance to Stanley Park. The Buchan is in a nice neighborhood and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. No need to have a car to get around. Staff was friendly and helpful.
