A special thanks to the Best Western Plus Uptown Hotel, We stayed at this hotel with my daughter as she had medical issues to attend to in Vancouver. The hotel allowed us to extend our stay and gave us the medical rate for the room. Thank you so much.

Good location, friendly staff, free parking and very good breakfast (be sure to go early so you can get a delicious almond croissant!) The Italian restaurant next door is also nice. Beware of one thing though: the heater/cooler is installed in such a way that it feels like an open window, so cold air and street-noise get in easily. We...

I stayed here for one night, it was about a 15 minute walk from Broadway/City Hall Station on the Canada Line. My room was OK, just OK, hence the reason I am not giving this hotel 4 or 5 points. My room was "strange" in that I had to use my room key to open a door, which led to...

Thank you for your review of our hotel, I am happy to hear that you enjoy the location as the area is often misunderstood or people still believe it to be the Mount Pleasant of 15-20 years ago. While the area is very much in transition currently with many new buildings going up in the area we are still maintaining...

We have stayed at BW Uptown many times for scheduled medical appointments at a nearby medical office. Always great quality and service. The staff know us well and add personal greetings and welcome each time we visit. The hotel is central for those wanting to visit Vancouver and its many sporting and cultural attractions.

This hotel is more than adequate. It's well located in a decent Vancouver neighborhood with plenty of restaurant options. It's slightly in need of updating but clean and well run. The breakfast was fine and the hotel is well appointed. Our room had the feeling of being in my grandmothers extra bedroom. It was a little bit cluttered with too...

Staying in South Main

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
