Moda Hotel Vancouver

Moda Hotel Vancouver Modern chic

Smack-dab in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown entertainment district, you’ll probably find yourself just coming back to your room at the Moda hotel to crash. A couple of short blocks away is the lively Granville Street (known for its lively night clubs and bars) and a number of city’s theatres.

But if you don’t want to go out at all, Moda has a selection of bars and eateries on the ground floor, including the award-winning Uva Wine Bar. And, just a heads up: Uva has just introduced a new happy hour menu, with their decadent cocktails starting from $8.

The rooms at Moda tend to be small but trendy, with modern minimalistic design reigning supreme. Just be warned, street noise can seep up into some rooms on the first. If you’re a light sleeper, request something a bit higher.

Best Western Sands Hotel Vancouver

We travel up to Vancouver every New Year’s Eve and stay 3 or 4 days. We can’t imagine staying anywhere but the Sands. Great staff, super location, excellent lounge and restaurant, very comfortable and clean rooms…….all of these things add up to a trip we look forward to every year.

I wanted to take my husband on an over-nighter to Vancouver for his birthday this year. We stayed at the best western plus sands and it was awesome! I booked it online and under the “special requests” box I asked if they could have one of those happy birthday foil helium balloons in the room ready for us. I totally forgot I had asked and when we got there, it was floating above the bed and my husband was so happy! The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were amazing! Not the normal neck cranking, can’t sleep type, but actually very comfortable! I almost want to see where they get them from. Front desk staff was very polite and helpful as well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

L’Hermitage Hotel Vancouver

L’Hermitage Hotel Vancouver

From spacious marble bathrooms, to the refined furniture and enormous king-sized beds, no expense has been spared in making L’Hermitage a gold-standard luxury hotel. While the fun of Downtown beckons, guests may prefer to luxuriate in their comfortable surrounds and watch TV on the 81cm plasma TV.

Want to really step things up? Order a from the “unpretentious” room service menu, which specialises in North America’s favourite meals. They’re best enjoyed while wearing the hotel’s bathrobe, of course.

It’s not just the classy décor that impresses – all members of the staff are extremely attentive, treating every guest like they’re a VIP. Even the bathrobe wearing, comfort-food eating ones.

Atrium Inn Vancouver

Wonderful hotel with clean, beautiful tiling in all the public places for an upscale appearance. Top floor was being renovated while we stayed so I am positive that this will be a marvelous “boutique” hotel experience once those are completed. Although there was traffic noise out our window, the comfortable, cozy bed was most conducive to a perfect sleep! The Staff are all so helpful, addressing any questions or concerns to our satisfaction. The Press Box pub offered a large menu of delicious, well prepared meals along with a craft beer selection that paired well. Daily specials on food and drinks. My wife and I stayed an extra night just so we could enjoy the Sunday evening Jam Session, filled out by some vey talented musicians and singers. The organizers made the audience feel like we were part of the show! Convenient to the PNE convention hall, the complimentary parking facilitated the transfer of our trade show booth materials to the venue for worry free access.The close proximity allowed us to attend the seminar meetings and the Vancouver Train Expo without a care. Lots of nearby food and amenity services within walking distance. The hotel is easily accessed from the Trans Canada Highway. I look forward to a return stay in the future.


Atrium Inn Vancouver

Located in East Vancouver across the street from the PNE, Hastings Racetrack, Casino and Pacific Coliseum.

Auberge Hotel Vancouver

Stayed one night for business and was very impressed with the location. The gym was one of the best hotel gyms I have ever seen, complete with a legitimate power rack and enough plates to actually accomplish a meaningful workout.
The complimentary continental breakfast was basic but adequate.
I was visiting for business and the only downside I experienced was the wifi was very unreliable and very slow when it did work. I spoke with the front desk and they indicated it was a common problem, but was supposed to be fixed by Shaw (the provider) in the next day or so.
I would stay at this hotel again, but only if I could be assured the wifi was fixed.

Great hotel. Close to convention centre, nice lite breakfast included, wonderful staff, very clean, great pool, hot tub and fitness centre. Second stay here and will gladly stay again. Much better deal than some other hotels less than a block away.

Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver

Had two experiences of this hotel at the beginning and end of our trip to BC. Staff all very friendly, rooms quiet (next to elevator but no noise) and clean and spacious especially in La Grande Residence. Only 2 little things, breakfast was a bit expensive, buffet okay if you eat a lot but we just wanted some cereal and pastries and that was expensive. Other is that this was the only place we stayed in 3 weeks where they charged for wi fi. We stayed everywhere from budget to luxurious all over BC and Alberta and I feel these days this is a bit silly.

I recently stayed at the Sutton Place with my grown-up children and was very impressed by the service quality and friendliness of the hotel staff. The concierge service deserves a special mentioning: I have been staying in many luxury hotels around the world but the kind of advice and support this team is offering can’t be topped. The location of the hotel in the iner city, the restaurant and the traditional bar are an additional plus.

Sylvia Hotel Vancouver

The furnishing is a bit old and there was no fridge in the room and only a coffee making machine which made tea making a bit problematic, but the hotel atmosphere was comfortable and the desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
The position of the hotel is good with easy access to the park, plenty of good eating nearby and easy transport availability.
The hotel also has a comfortable bar with a good and tasty menu if you want a meal as well as a drink.

We recently stayed at the Sylvia Hotel for 5 days and whilst we enjoyed the ambience of the old hotel, we found the final bill to be much higher than what we expected. We got caught out with the parking fee $18 per day and the Canadian taxes. Our double queen room + kitchen was perfect for our needs although it was quite warm. I have stayed at the Sylvia several times over the last 30 years
