We stayed there for a few days over the weekend and it was a very enjoyable stay. The hotel overall was very cute and modern, the room was very clean, as well as the overall hotel. The location was right in the middle of Vancouver and really close to everything. There is a coffee shop and a pretty ...
Do not believe all the negative reviews by the people who hate the name. I rarely write reviews for anything, but the service and luxury amenities this hotel provided compelled me to write this. This place was the best.
Yes the hotel has a lot of history of the Canadian culture. I was impressed with the pub and the rooms was to my satisfaction with some updates needed for more comfort. I enjoy the short walk to the main attractions there and felt safe.
I thoroughly enjoyed this little place. It is right in the middle of downtown. It has a 1930s charm to it. It is well maintained, the staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly, and it is right in the middle of everything. The minor annoyance of a shared bathroom can be overcome with planning. Staying ...
This hotel was just what you would expect from the price! It was not the nicest or updated but it was close to the water and Stanley Park the staff was super friendly and helpful. Free wifi, $25 a day for parking, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The views cannot be beat! Oceans on one ...

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.
We stayed one night while driving to Vancouver, and we should have stayed longer.
We were upgraded upon arrival to the presidential suite. It was beautiful. The staff were awesome, helping us with where to go, and printing out an item I forgot. Was close to cruise port-Canada Place, and offered door to door shuttle service. I would definitely go back!
LOVED the complimentary bikes and the perfect location with Stanley Park a bike ride away and beaches as well. Along with great harbor front restaurants.
Nice place, vibrant options under one roof, however hard to find parking and too far away from the actual entrance.
