Stayed at the Sheraton for three nights. Got a great price and was very happy with the Sheraton. The room was spacious and the bathroom was very large. The staff working were very helpful – especially the guys working the valet parking! The location is easy walking distance to everything. There is also free wi-fi.
The normal price for the hotel is very high so I Would only stay there again if I got a good deal.
We stayed for 1 night before going on a cruise. The hotel is very conveniently located and they have a free shuttle every half hour to Canada Place which was a huge bonus for us..
Our room was nice and clean, and had everything we needed. The restaurant food was good and service was good, however we felt that all the staff were a bit ‘condescending’ and not particularly friendly.
Halloween in Vancouver is one of the better times of the year as the tree lined streets become a bit scarier as we approach October 31. From ghostly activities to haunted houses,here are some of the Highlights of Halloween in Vancouver.
The Zombie Syndrome Theatre Adventure
an “interactive theatre adventure” that happens outside; this year, the production moves from Downtown Vancouver to Granville Island. Audience members find clues to stop a zombie plague, all while outrunning the walking dead!
Fright Nights at the PNE
The most popular Vancouver Halloween attraction is undoubtedly Fright Nights at the PNE. During Fright Nights, the PNE’s Playland amusement park becomes a thrill park, with themed rides, creepy attractions, and seven seriously haunted houses.
Pumpkin Patch at Richmond Country Farms
Want to run through a pumpkin patch for Halloween in Vancouver? Richmond Country Farm is located just 20 minutes south of Vancouver and is home to the area’s most famous pumpkin patch, plus a corn maze, animals, and more.
Stanley Park Ghost Train
The ride takes visitors past creative and (gently) spooky tableaux created by the amazing performers of Mortal Coil, which, though aimed at kids 10 and under, are fun for the whole family.
Vancouver Haunted Trolley Tours
Aimed at visitors 13 and older, Vancouver Haunted Trolley Tours explore Vancouver’s creepiest spots, including Mountain View Cemetery and the autopsy room of the Vancouver Police Museum.
The Valley Haunt
This haunted house in North Vancouver has evolved from a neighbourhood haunt to a popular Halloween attraction. Geared towards kids over 8 (and adults!), this year’s haunt has themed rooms, including “Valley View Cemetery,” “Dr. Dume’s Research Lab,” “CarnEVIL,” and “Zombie Casino.”
Glow in the Garden – Halloween at VanDusen Botanical Garden
NEW for 2016: Gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Garden–which famously puts on one of Vancouver’s best light displays every winter with its Festival of Lights–celebrates Halloween with the brand-new-for-2016 Glow in the Garden, a kid-friendly event that includes light decorations, “ghoulish music, and glowing pumpkin characters created by award-winning carvers Clive Cooper and Bruce Waugh.”
Haunted Village at the Burnaby Village Museum
The Burnaby Village Museum–an outdoor 1900s village–celebrates Halloween with a Witch’s Ball, Circus Sideshow, and carousel rides, ideal for kids 10 and under. Bring the kids in costume!
Halloweenie at the Granville Island Kids Market
One of the few free Vancouver Halloween Attractions for Kids, the annual Halloweenie party at Granville Island’s famous Kids Market includes a Halloween Balloon Hunt, crafts, games, and a free hotdog and beverage for kids who come in their costumes
Potter’s House of Horrors
The House of Horrors at 12530 72nd Avenue, Surrey is a professional presentation in a labyrinth like walk through of approximately 9,000 square feet. It consists of several rooms and displays connected together by dark twisty hallways.
CAPA said the Vancouver Airport also has been a leader on the technology and environmental fronts. Last year the airport received an innovation award from CAPA for its BORDERXPRESS Automated Control Kiosks, which has reduced waiting times by more than 50% and is now in use at 32 airports across North America and the Caribbean.
Some of the highlights implemented and offered at YVR include a 32% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions per passenger over the last decade and is the first airport to secure a salmon safe certification, highlighting its commitment to protect water quality and aquatic life.
Award Winning Art and Architecture
A stunning west coast-themed international departure area, and almost unanimous customer satisfaction reports (91 per cent), YVR features the largest Northwest Coast Native art collection in the world and two satellite Vancouver Aquarium exhibits.
Restroom for Pets
The pet-friendly restroom features a puppy potty and a grass floor as well as features to allow easy access for people with disabilities.
Free Yoga Space
Need a stretch before heading on that long flight? Vancouver International Airport has a room for you.
YVR and Yoga have announced a new pilot program that will provide a free yoga space for departing passengers.
This is the first time YVR has earned the ranking and is the first North American airport to do so. Previous winners are Singapore Changi Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and Beijing Capital International Airport.
YVR has grown from serving only 1,072 passengers in 1931 to an expected 22 million in 2016. It now serves over 35 airlines from around the world.
nice clean hotel in the heart of Vancouver. Friendly courteous attentive staff. Adjacent to a sports bar, Shark Club and upscale dining at Moxies. Steps to the Rogers centre. Pool and hot tub very clean!
Spent a wonderful night with my daughter at the Sandman. Fantastic staff who were friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and comfortable. So close to Rogers,Arena and,BC Place. Walking distance to downtown. I will be staying here again.
Great view of the waterfront and the city from the 19th floor. Great location. Nice hotel with a kitchen. Room was very cleanness and had been updated. Very trendy neighbourhood. Staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.
We stayed here as part of a tour to Canadian Rockies , the suites were very spacious and everything in them you need , we were 2 single girls and one had the bed and other on put you up bed which was really comfy , love the idea that the lift only works with your door key which is very safe , pool area great with a heater when you get out of the pool (sun wasn’t there then so you needed heater ) then sun came out and was great , the only downfall was it was a gay/lesbein area ( not that that bothers me in slightest ) but wasn’t anyway really close to hotel to go for a drink , the bar attached to hotel were really friendly and chatty.
Located in Downtown Vancouver close to English Bay, World Famous Stanley Park, Granville Island yet minutes from the heart of Vancouver shopping and business districts, this trendy 3 star Hotel in Davie Village has fully furnished suites … Amenities
Sandman Suites On Davie Vancouver
1160 Davie Street, Vancouver, British Columbia
One of the most beautiful hotels in Vancouver! From check in to the concierge to the wonderful roof top bar, this is top notch! The room is absolutely stunning. Hollywood glam with hints of Art Deco. Fantastic room overlooking Georgia ST and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Great sound proofed windows. The washroom/bathroom is HUGE! Beautiful marble/granite.
One cool feature of the hotel: you can have a splash of several different scents and colognes at the lobby. Never seen that!
Great place to stay, rooms are very comfortable ,location is great , concierge book some great restaurants and the hotel car took us to the Vancouver ice hockey match which they help us book, staff are fantastic hope to stay again some day.
Opening in 1927 the Hotel Georgia Vancouver played host to Hollywood Stars and Royalty. In 2011 it underwent a full renovation and reopened as the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. The Forbes 5 Star hotel has been meticulously restored to its place as one of the most prominent hotels worldwide.
Location is perfect for someone wanting to explore Stanley Park. Very big suite with all the amenities and more than enough room for two people. Staff is very friendly. Many coffee shops and restaurants in walking distance.
Five of us stayed here in October for only one night but our experience was awesome. From the helpful, friendly gentleman who greeted us to the very clean room with extremely comfortable beds our night was a total success. Being able to park the car and walk to some of the most visited places with such ease was a treat. Would most certainly stay here again if the occasion arises.
As Platinum Elite members, we opted to stay at the Marriott Pinnacle, foregoing other hotels in the area. It was a great choice! The hotel is remarkable service-friendly and tourist-friendly. Check-in was seamless, and the room offered great views of the harbor. The room itself was clean and the bed was comfortable, as were the pillows (which seems to be an increasing rarity in our travels). The downstairs bar offers great selections of wine, liquors, and local beers.
You cannot leave a review without commenting on proximity. Proximity is ideal here! You are close to the harbor, close to shopping, and close to our favorite area of Vancouver: the historic Gas Town.
Note: downtown Vancouver to the airport is a bit of a drive, so keep that in mind, but we highly recommend staying downtown. On our first trip to Vancouver, we stayed near the airport (which is Richmond, not Vancouver) and taxied into the city. That was convenient only for early-morning flyers (as we were), but it did not allow you enough time in the city.
Spacious room with kitchenette. Breakfast included although – weekday had better choice than weekend for some reason. Hotel close to a lot of good restaurants so did not eat in. Only there for two nights and found to to be a good location as a base.
I usually stay at the Marriott Pinnacle in downtown Vancouver when I visit for business, but this was a little bit closer to my destination and a wee bit cheaper to boot – although both had pet policies that would allow my two wee dogs to come with on this occasion. We checked in smoothly without mishap, got up to our room and took the doggies for a spin in downtown Van… Then we came back for pickup room service dinner because too lazy to venture outside our four walls – was yummy and we enjoyed – doggies included!
Enjoyed our complimentary breakfast in the morning after taking dogs out for ablutions…. It was an entirely positive experience despite many opportunities for it to be less than so….
Suite was average, bedroom very light and bright, lounge/kitchen very dark had to have light on all the time. No safe in suite so put all valuables in safety deposit box in office behind reception. When we needed to get money out couldn’t find key to box. Am sure l accidentally left key to box on the desk and walked out. Long story short I had to pay $350 CAD for a “locksmith”. Would never stay there again and travellers beware. Have travelled and stayed in hotels all over, this was the first hotel without a safety deposit box in suite. Shame on you Rosedale on Robson.
The 50 th reunion of a flock of nurses descended on this hotel and took over at least 2 floors. Plus a few of us intrepid spouses. Many gatherings in the hotel and central for special nearby events. Would stay there again. Parking was right below.
