Best Western Uptown Hotel Vancouver

Stayed here Dec 21-24 as a couple.
Upon check-in we were upgraded to a corner suite on the 3rd floor overlooking Kingsway.
The room was very spacious with a large comfortable King bed, microwave, & fridge.
The free breakfast is a nice touch with many options: Daily they offered: toast, english muffins, bagels, cream cheese, cereals, jams/spreads, oatmeal, waffels, yoghurt, fresh fruit. Daily they offered a rotation of folded eggs and either sausage or bacon and of course juices and tea/coffee, milk
Outside the hotel you can take one of many bus routes, to get downtown is about 15 minutes and is $2.75 (direct cash required) You can also purchase all day day passes at the airport and sea bus terminal.
To get to the hotel you can take a cab or the sky train which is what we did, it was about 35 minutes travel time and much cheaper than a taxi.
Our overall stay at the Uptown was positive, very comfortable, friendly staff, free breakfast and great location. I will stay here on my next visit.

BW Uptown is a perfectly acceptable, solid mid-range hotel. Everything is done well. The building is a bit dated, but the place is pin neat and it is convenient to transportation into downtown or to the train station. The staff is very helpful and cheerful. I would not hesitate to stay again. Great value for money!

Being renovated even though the rooms are still in very good shape. Shows their commitment to their guests. Love the fact breakfast is served until 10:30, allows us to sleep in. The staff is always so friendly. The location can’t be beat.

We stayed here (with a reservation) the night of December 22, 2016 because it was close to the hospital complex for an early doctor’s appointment. We had just had a week of COLD (minus 10 or so) weather and it was still chilly out. The room was freezing and we discovered that not only was the heat turned off, but the vent in the heater was open to allow the sub freezing air in from outside. My husband went down to ask if we could have another room and was told it would not matter as all the rooms had the heat turned off! They gave us a little portable heater but it did not make much difference. We turned on the wall heater unit as well but the bed felt like a block of ice. All I wanted to do was take a shower and go to bed, but you could not stand to touch the granite counter in the bathroom or stand on the tile floor without shoes – it was like being outside! My husband finally decided to try ironing the bed, and after about an hour he had it warm enough to consider climbing in. After three hours of working at it, we had the room tolerably warm. If we had known it would take so long, we would have gone somewhere else!
They are in the middle of redecorating and it LOOKS pretty enough, but what is the point of that if the comfort level is almost zero – along with the temperature!
We have always enjoyed staying with Best Western in the past, but this place is not worthy of the franchise. Disgusted!

Thankfully there was a cancellation as every hotel was booked when we changed our driving plans and ended up in Vancouver at 4am instead of 1pm.
The room was very nice, the beds were so comfortable and had 4 wonderful big pillows with a fluffy duvet.
The front desk staff were fabulous and very caring. We got a great price too.
The downside was we were woke up early by construction going on right under our room, they were putting in new windows, which is great for the hotel but was awful for us!

The hotel was clean, comfortable, and had a very good breakfast included in the room rate. Both hot and cold food options were available. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The hotel was just 5k from city centre, so location was very good. My only criticism was the fitness room did not open until 8:30 am, so it was not possible for me to get a workout in before heading out for the day.

We’ve stayed here a number of times because the hotel is the best value in this part of Vancouver. Check-in is easy although the parking lot (free) would be tight for larger vehicles. Staff are courteous and always offer a greeting. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Rooms not facing Kingsway are quieter but all offer good sleep. The wifi connection is fast. The included breakfast offers a good choice of hot and cold items. The restaurant next door (Bella Italia) is a decent spot for dinner

Room was good. Breakfast OK Close to where I was taking a course. Lots of coffee shops near. Lots of construction in this area. Good grocery store across the street with a good choice of snacks and great deli.

The room was clean, quiet and larger than expected. A/C blows cold and with a Walmart nearby, saved money on food using the provided microwave and refrigerator. Beds comfortable, water warm, although the pressure could be better. Also, nonslip bathmats would be welcomed.

the hotel was a good value, a bit awkward to get to but was a comfortable, not loud, and had a great nights sleep. Would stay there again. Oh when checking find out which connection is their wifi. They gave us the password but we couldn’t’ figure out which locked connections was theirs.

Convenient place to stay – not far from SkyTrain station – we were able to walk. Staff were incredibly helpful – found us a room to check in early. Plentiful breakfast – but small cramped room to eat it in.

Always such a treat to stay here. The staff are exceptional, the rooms are always clean and comfortable, the location is central, we enjoy the breakfast, the Keurig coffee maker in the room is a nice addition, internet is easy to access and use

Visited Vancouver for a wedding. This hotel is located uptown and has easy access to public transport and was steps away from several restaurants. Also there is a hospital 1 block away for which we also ended up going to. Nonetheless the staff was friendly and the atmosphere warm.

Stayed here overnight for a medical procedure at a nearby hospital. Much cheaper than neighbouring hotels. Area is rather busy, we asked for a quiet upper room. It was more than we expected, spotlessly clean and updated. No fridge but we didn’t need one. Booking, check-in and out was easy. Breakfast room was well stocked with hot and cold items including waffles although small for the large number staying there. Easy walking distance to restaurants, small shopping centre and nearby hospital.. Free underground gated parking. Would stay there again

The property is located near to downtown ! To explore Vancouver this is a good option ! They provide free parking to the guest. Breakfast served was limited ! The place where they serves breakfast is very small. The front desk staff was polite and the service was good. Overall it was a comfortable stay !

Although the hotel was in a good location, the room was not altogether clean and the reception staff were efficient but friendly or open. Although we booked we did not find out until we arrived that their parking was limited. We were lucky and were able to get a spot, However, when I mentioned this to the reception that they should make sure customers knew this before booking.  Inside the room the bathroom and areas on doors were not clean. Even though it is high season and this being a cheaper hotel, it did not seem like a good deal. When leaving no friendly thank you or good bye.

staff at front desk was friendly. parking is at rare of hotel which is very narrow and limited space. but free of charge. Big supermarket very close to hotel. we stayed for one day only and no issues faced. room size was ok and rate was mid range.

For the amount of money, its on a high side for the service you receive. Limited parking, small break fast room. Its a good hotel, but not for the price that i paid. Location is good, staff is very friendly

It’s homey, very clean, staff extremely professional & helpful. Only thing the website we booked through had there was a shuttle to the ports & close to everything. Unfortunately it’s not so its a 15-20 minute taxi ride away to the port. Our room very comfortable it’s a plus after a long day of flying!
