We weren't sure what to expect with this place. We knew it would be dated, and it was, but we were thrilled to see that it was immaculate and comfortable. An excellent value for the price. We even got a fun bonus view of the city from the 12th floor. We would for sure stay here again.

The hotel was all we needed for a two night stay: The suite was suprisingly big with a living room and full kitchen which we didn't even need. Everything was clean and the service was good (they even allowed us to park all day on our last day). The location was really good to venture out into the city and...

If your not concerned about 5 star accommodation then this is the place to stay. Good cheap accommodation in the middle of Vancouver, Robson Street. The bed is seriously comfortable but the outfit is tired not that that was a problem. It is quiet and easy to get to with full kitchen facilities so you can eat in if you...

All the bad reviews really worried me and I almost gave up staying there. Thank goodness I didn't! Ok, the hotel is old, the rooms look like they came from the 80s, but it was super clean, very spacious (our room was like a small apartment, there was the bedroom, the bathroom, a living room, a small dining area and...

Pre-booked at short notice a room/suite for one night. Location is perfect for shopping and Stanley Park is literally just down the road. The hotel and room were outdated. The windows in the suite - were filthy, though the bedding was crisp and clean. Cost was £100 for one night, cheap compared to other hotels. Suite - consisted of full...

Cheap and a reminder of 70's tower block living must have been like. But... If you want a good central location, will be out for most of the day/evening, this is the place for you. It is a short walk to Stanley park, central to Robson Street and serviced daily by a lovely crew. I would recommend this to anyone,...

Spent 5 days at the Tropicana. It was a clean, "no frills" hotel. Maid service everyday. Our bathroom had recently been remodeled and was nice. The curtains in both rooms were old and frayed, but effective. Kitchen was minimal. Great view and great location. Easy walking to shopping, Stanley Park and the waterfront. Front desk was helpful. Used the washing...

This is a boutique hotel that is locked in the design and colours of the 80's. The room are complete with coffee maker, fridge, range, microwave, big TVs and good beds. Nothing has changed since Disco was King. Frankly this hotel is a bargain at only $149 a nite including parking. My room on the 10th floor even had a...

No matter what people say, we enjoyed our stay here. O.k. the apartments need a renovation. We stayed there before in 1998 and 2009 and it was like coming home. Nothing has changed. But: The apartments are a good size and compared to just a hotel room the prize is reasonable. The people at the front desk are really nice...

Okay travelers. Here it is. What the folks say is true. The hotel has not been updated since the 60's or 70's. There were waves in the green carpet, the goose poop on my railing seemed about 10 years old, the formica counters had been burned many, many times..... So, how come the "average" rating???? Well, it is across the...

Staying in Robson Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.
