Clean rooms, average size, helpful staff. VERY DISAPPOINTED at being put in a room next to the bar where a corporate Christmas party was being held. The music started at 10:30pm and was very loud in our room. When we called the front desk to complain, we were told that the music would end at midnight and we were reluctantly...

Went to the hotel, but the one person you can buy a gift certificate from was not there. Was told to email her, to which she replied that I should call her. Called her, was told she would put it in the mail. I was concerned about it getting to me by Christmas, she was very irritated and sarcastic. Altogether,...

Dear Sakura606, Thank you for your comments. I do apologize that you did not have a good experience trying to purchase a Gift Certificate.

I've stayed at this hotel six or seven times now. It's beautifully situated, the rooms are clean and well appointed, the scale is just about perfect, and its not even outrageously expensive. The bar is nice, and you're near virtually everything worth seeing in Vancouver, not just on Granville Island. You can even park your car 20 feet from the...

Location of the hotel on Granville Island is excellent being close to most of the sites in Vancouver. In particular being able to step out of the hotel onto a water taxi and go around the harbor is excellent. Also the staff have been excellent with a fantastic knowledge of the city and the best places to go. Only negative...

Our experience at the Granville Island Hotel has taken us there for a Christmas party for the past couple of years. This year we had two parties within a couple of weeks of each other and decided to stay overnight for the second party to have a mini holiday just before Christmas. We found the majority of the staff very...

We love the location of this hotel. We try to stay here every time we visit Vancouver. It is great to walk around Grandville Island and shop in all the artisan shops. There is plenty to do and plenty of restaurants to chose from.

I have stayed at the Granville Island hotel a few times. The service is great, and the rooms are well appointed. I had a comfortable king sized bed with lovely cotton sheets and lots of pillows. There are lots of toiletries and plenty of thick towels. The room has a fully stocked mini bar, a flat screen TV with many...

Very friendly and welcoming staff, comfortable rooms and beautiful views and location. Convenient starting point for walking nearly anywhere. The ONLY thing that is a minor knock would be the age of the fitness equipment... But if it's a nice day you should be out walking not running on a treadmill. I have stayed here MANY days over the past...

I only needed a place to stay for one night and the value for what I got exceeded my expectations. An added bonus was learning how quiet the location is, no traffic noise at all, not bad for a hotel in the city. I dined in the lounge as the restaurant was booked for a private function and I'm glad...

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
