We stayed for almost two weeks while on a recent business / vacation trip to Vancouver. It was ideal for a family of four (including a preteen and a teenager). While the room itself was small there was lots of drawer space so we were not too cluttered. The bathroom counter space was one of the largest I have encountered... More

We booked into this hotel because it was close to Stanley Park. We enjoyed the opportunity to go out for a long walk in the morning by the ocean. The hotel room was very nice and clean. Our main complaint is that the $14.95/day price for in room wifi is ridiculous. For such a high end hotel this seems ridiculous... More

As an SPG gold member who loves Starwood, I have to say I was incredibly disappointed. My biggest gripe is that management actively blocked the ability to hook a laptop into the TV. For a business traveler this is outrageous. The concierge and check in were understaffed with long wait times. The concierge was pleasant but not knowledgeable. The elevators... More

This is by far the best hotel to stay at. I have been to Vancouver many times. The last time we stayed at the Hyatt and the Fairmont.

Cannot beat the location. Right off Stanley Park and an easy walk ( 1 mile) to Canada Place, Gastown, etc. Plus they are a stop on the Hop On, Hop Off Bus which is a good tour.

The best part about this hotel is the location if you want to get away from being directly downtown. It is located right on the water and some rooms I imagine have great views.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
