Profile: Downtown Vancouver

Profile: Downtown Vancouver

Downtown Vancouver sits at the base of the Stanley Park peninsular, in the northern/central part of the city. As well as being the primary business district, it is home to several major sports and entertainment venues.

The area is always bustling, with suited business folks and edgy fashionistas showing off the latest trends, creating a young and fast-paced vibe. An evening’s activity options are equally diverse, and might include anything from a Canucks ice-hockey game at the epic Rogers Arena or a classical concert at the grand 1920s era Orpheum theater.

7.8.Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    Rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Location was within walking distance to great shopping as well as a 7 minute drive to the hospital which was our reason for travel. Staff was very friendly and patient with our numerous Skip the Dishes orders due to restaurants being closed to dining. Overall our stay was pleasant and stress free which was perfect as we were in Vancouver for hospital appointments and stress was already high.

    This hotel is fantastic. They watch your bags for you if your room isn’t prepared yet and they are kind enough to watch them after you check and go for breakfast. All around friendly staff and a great experience. It was my second time staying here and I won’t use any other hotel when I visit.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Some hotel facilities (i.e. gym, housekeeping) were closed due to covid-19. However, staff were friendly & helpful, including understanding scheduling and logistics challenges that weren’t their fault. Hotel is within easy walking distance of most of downtown Vancouver. There is a White Spot connected to the lobby, although the hotel coffee is quite nice. Room was quite spacious; however, the router or wifi extender device on the wall in room seemed noisy and interrupted sleep. There is a business centre desk in the lobby but didn’t try that.

    Verified Expedia guest review

  • 8.0.Very Good

    This place is in a good location right on Granville Street. We stayed in a premium king room. It was a little on the small side, but it did the job. It was advertised as having a separate seating area, which to most people would mean a separate room where the couch or chairs would be. But according to the person at the front desk, a chair across from the bed is a separate seating area. So, not exactly as advertised. The remote for the TV didn't work well either. You pretty much had to press right thru the remote for the buttons to work. It's not very soundproof either as you could hear everything in the hall, all the doors slamming, and the traffic noise thru the site conditioning system. The price is good ($77) but a bit small for me.
