Park your car and either walk or take the water taxi to pretty much everything. Shopping close, hospital appointments close by, restaurants and variety of food for take-away is the best. Walking or riding the seawall is right there....the best of Vancouver at your doorstep.

Great location as you can walk to all the shops at Granville Island or hang around the boardwalk. The hotel is pricey but worth it if you feel the need to spoil yourself. Everything at the hotel reflects a First Class Hotel. We will return!

Stayed here for one night prior to catching a cruise. Wish we had a longer stay. Hotel was beautiful, staff super friendly and helpful and the location is the best in town. So easy to stroll around the island - lots to see and do, great restaurants. Will definitely be back.

The location is terrific, with the Market close-by, galleries, theatres - all on the island. Easy drive to downtown, or take one of the bus-boats, friendly people, sea views for a long walk around Granville Island or just across from it.

The hotel is in good location for eating out & shopping for walking distance. The room is clean & comfortable. The bathroom is renovated to modern style. The parking fee is not much compare to the hotels in downtown.

We were on Granville Island many years ago and enjoyed our short visit. When I found the Granville Island Hotel on line I was hoping to find something with personality in a place we enjoyed before. This was the place to stay while visiting Vancouver. We walked around the island, rode the 'put put taxis' and took the water taxis...

We highly recommend this hotel for a wedding/reception. We were married there in October 2014 and had 105 guests attend the ceremony and reception. It was held in the smaller venue in the lounge and we had an elegant cocktail reception. We had a lovely young lady, Carla, help us organize the party from choosing the food to the set...

This hotel is situated in a great area with fabulous markets, restaurants and theatres surrounding it. Staff very friendly and rooms a good size. You can catch a bus nearby to the city but you should enjoy the shops and markets on the island.

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.
