Eight of the top 15 hotels in Canada are located right here in B.C., according to U.S. News & World Report this week released its 2018 rankings for the best hotels around the world, and British Columbia properties snagged eight of the top 15 spots in Canada.
Vancouver’s Rosewood Hotel Georgia took first place in the consumer ranking, while Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn came in third. Vancouver’s Wedgewood Hotel was in fourth place and the Fairmont Pacific Rim was sixth.
Great hotel for the value. Usually stay here during convention as it is way more reasonably priced than hotels closer to the convention center. It’s about a 20 min walk or a 10 min cab ride( in traffic) to the convention center. They have 1 bedroom suites with balcony and full kitchens. The higher floors are quieter. Beds are very comfortable
It is next to a hospital so rooms facing west will be a bit noisier, but higher floors will lessen
Great staff and very good service.
If you don’t want housekeeping, they will give you a coffee card for every day you don’t want cleaning

Great room, comfy beds. Walking distance to everything. The bar and restaurant downstairs are fantastic. Such kind and friendly wait staff. Come for the comfy beds stay for the food and drinks. Very pleasant atmosphere.
I’d like to highlight the staff in this review. The staff were lovely and quite professional in their service. Just because of them I’d consider staying again. The stay was without issue, and the room was comfortable! The room was clean and stocked… couldn’t understand the tv channels.. but I’m assuming I had to pay, when I’ve never had to at other hotels. Overall great experience
I have been in this hotel twice and spent 2 nights per each visit. The hotel front desk and housekeeping staff are amazing; they are helpful and friendly. Fabio, Andre, Paul and Osmel thank you. The rooms and beddings/linens are very clean. On of the cleanest hotels I’ve been.
I had a rather unpleasant experience at the restaurant this time round: the Friday 10th November afternoon restaurant manager without saying a word walked rudely and yanked cutlery from the hands of the server while I was placing my order. I picked up my food about 20 minutes later and when I got to my room, I realized that the food cover was stuck on the food plate so I went back down to ask them to help me remove it. This same manager overheard me telling the server about the stuck cover so turned to me and said ” you are very special, this has never happened before”. Hm, so because “I’m very special” they decided to press down the food cover so hard it got stuck, right? You would have thought that, he will take responsibility for what went wrong. But no, no apology nothing. The server took the tray and food, she came back a few minutes later and it was open. I later realized that they broke the plastic food cover so there were plastic bits in my food. The food cover had the broken parts all round the top.
The green beans in the food were rotten, I don’t know if there was old left over rotting beans sauce that was placed first in my plate and they they added a little bit of fresh one on top???
I had a long day working about 2 hours away from the hotel, so I must say that I was tired and should never have even ordered the food let alone tasted it, seeing how the manager behaved. Not only did they let me down but I think I let myself down not to have confronted him and also returned the food and collected my money together with my 15% tip. His saying that I was ‘very special” makes me wonder, what coded way was he trying to tell me that I was being treated differently?

The hotel is located in downtown Vancouver and is a 15 minute walk from the Scotia Tower station which is on the Canada line. The Canada lines runs from Vancouver (YVR) airport and downtown. A taxi from the airport cost $31.00. The reception staff on arrival were very friendly and check in only took a few minutes. There is a restaurant and coffee shop in the hotel. The gym is modern and open 24/7. If you wish to park a car at the hotel the cost is $17.00 (+tax) per day. The one bedroom suites come with kitchen and separate bedroom for more privacy. Our friend stayed in a studio suite which also had a kitchenette yet the bed was in the same room as the lounge. There is an IGA supermarket a short walk down Burrard street which is open until midnight most nights.

The hotel is older and could use a tiny bit of maintenance. However, it was super clean and comfortable. The courtyard was beautiful and I loved the little touches that they put around the place like the cute little signage. The staff was friendly and there was complimentary bottled water and coffee in the room. The location was good too. We were easily able to walk to the main shopping streets. The only downside was the $35 a night for parking!
We go into Vancouver quite regularly and have stayed in many different hotels and decided to try the Burrard for the first time via a Be Vancouver promotion. We stayed two nights and loved the place! The front desk staff are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms, although not as spacious as other hotels we’ve stayed in have everything you need for a comfortable stay and are absolutely spotless. It has a very “retro” feel to it and I really enjoyed the courtyard with the trees lit up, the open fire pit and the music. I felt like I was in a tropical resort when we walked into the courtyard despite the chilly Vancouver weather. The wi-fi is free along with complimentary bikes and they even offer a pass to the nearby Steve Nash although I didn’t make use of that. There is a coffee shop and restaurant on either side. Had a nice chat with the maid as well who was also very personable. Will definitely stay here again.
Free parking although they are a little tight. Lots of very good restaurants within walking distance. A 2 min walk to the Kingsgate mall. We have actually walked to Science World and to see Cirque once. A very short cab ride to see the Canucks or BC Lions as they are virtually next door.
Our two negatives at this hotel were the scruffy-looking evening receptionist and the fact that our room wasn’t serviced on the first day (we just received a shrug when we mentioned it at reception). We later found a form buried in a drawer which we should apparently have handed in, stating our servicing requirements but next time we just hung the sign on the door requesting it.
Apart from that though, we had a nice large room with comfortable bed and chairs and a peaceful night’s sleep. We were at the time able to enjoy the good choice on the breakfast bar. The staff were cheerful and attentive, as were the daytime receptionists.
Its location could be a disadvantage to someone without a car, as we were, as it involves a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest metro station (although there is also a nearby bus route). There is, however, a convenient shopping mall with supermarkets across the road and several restaurants, although we didn’t feel the need to explore these as the Italian one next door does delicious food.
Great neighbourhood for restaurant and coffee shop choices, access to the beaches and Stanley Park. Friendly staff. Small quibble with the older tub and tile surround in an otherwise well renovated bathroom. Good hardworking housekeeping staff.
We stay here whenever we are in Vancouver. The locations right on English Bay makes all events reachable. There are many good ethic restaurants within walking distance. The facilities are a little older, but have been upgraded beautifully. We always get an exceptional sleep due to comfortable beds, good bedding, windows that open to let in air, and the quietness of the area. The rooms are large, very clean, good bathroom amenities and a feeling of comfortableness. The staff are always very professional, helpful and smiling. We would not hesitate to recommend this facility to others and will stay here again.
One night stay in August. Ideal location close to subway and Canada Place, We were upgraded to a suite – lots of space, harbour view,, but the bedroom and bathroom were both tiny…. the suite seemed to be two single rooms combined, Kitchenette in lounge of suite a bit strange for an expensive CBD hotel (though probably cheaper than the Fairmont almost next door), but useful. Furnishings w were a bit tired. However all was clean and quiet, ideal and recommended for our purpose of a one night transit.
The location is excellent close to ferry terminal, close to shops and eateries, also the shipping terminal for cruise ships. Staff were friendly, free breakfast. Rooms excellent with great view of the city, we had the high rooms on the top floors which offered great views.
It is a great location for concerts at pacific collision, very friendly staff. We had checked in on Friday and left Saturday, still felt welcome. The rooms are a bit outdated I think some updating of the room would be good to improve buisness.
We were here for four nights while in Vancouver. Fast, friendly check-in. Our room had two queen beds and a small balcony. Room and bathroom were very clean. Wifi was included, but no mini-fridge. The building/signage didn’t stick out, and we rode past the building several times before finding it – GPS kept taking us down the alley behind it where you can’t get in. Parking is underneath the hotel. Would stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel because of its excellent location close to the PNE grounds. An easy walk to the Pacific Coliseum. Hotel does not look to fancy from the outside but nice and clean and updated on the inside. Rooms were spacious and clean. Nice bonus was the free hot breakfast, good variety of various food items, hot and cold. Very helpful and friendly staff.
