Blue Horizon Hotel Vancouver

My wife and I are both from Vancouver, but no longer live there. We travel back often to see family and friends and always stay at some of the higher end hotels downtown, of which there are many. This trip we looked for an alternative, like a Boutique Hotel or Bed & Breakfast. Both of us are hospitality industry veterans so we like to explore.

While looking online I stumbled on to the Blue Horizon which we both know well, but I was unsure as it is an older property. I looked at the pictures and was surprised at the new look of this older Robson St landmark, so we took a chance.

WOW! What a fantastic make over of this property. A wonderful contemporary look has brought the hotel new life. There is an excellent restaurant/cafe in lobby now called Abode, it is full service or just a coffee.

The Front Desk staff was friendly and super attentive, this was our 20th anniversary and they made sure that we were taken great care of. The location is PERFECT, as it is walking distance to some of the best restaurants, the waterfront is a 10 minute walk to Coal Harbour or you can jump on the bus that stops out front (which is free BTW #5/6) that circles the downtown area. There is a liquor store around the corner as well as an Urban Fare grocery store.

The rooms are a good size, with great new decor, comfortable beds, good linens and great pillow selection. The rooms have balconies which I like, because l like to open my window to get the sea air. We had a great view of English Bay and the West End, which is really spectacular day or night. Our bathroom still had the old bathtub, but if that is going to turn you off a hotel, then you’re better off spending $500 a night some place else. My understanding is that they are still in the process of renovating bathrooms, and are close to completion.

We had the best stay we have had in Vancouver in years at this hotel and will be going back VERY soon, it is our new home away from home when in Vancouver! Thank you to the staff of the Blue Horizon for a great Anniversary Weekend!! SEE YOU SOON!

I was not familiar with this brand of hotel. It was booked by a family member so we followed suit. The check in process was very smooth and we got some great local recommendations from the staff. We asked for an upper floor- and we ended up on the 29th which was fantastic. This hotel offers nice views the higher you go. There are ample windows and I think all rooms have a balcony. Nice and bright. Very comfortable bed and a good size bathroom. No magnifying mirror.
The Adobe restaurant in the hotel was very good. We had several breakfasts and happy hours here. Nice bar to grab a drink in before heading out.
The hotel is located on Robson Street- there are plenty of great restaurants close by and of course loads of shopping. Some points of reference: Stanley Park is a 10 min walk as is the harbor. Yaletown is 20 min walk. Nordstrom is 7 blocks away. I think our room was roughly $200 U.S per night which we thought was very good value.

We’ve stayed here twice. Our first visit 3 years ago was so good we decided to return to the Blue Horizon and it was as good as we’d remembered. I liaised with Dee Montero in Reservations and her customer care was excellent.
The hotel itself is in the perfect location – near a fantastic selection of cafes, bars and restaurants serving good food. The hotel restaurant – Abode – also serves better food than most hotels and is reasonably priced. The hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient and housekeeping is of a high standard. Rooms overlooking Robson Street have great views of the city down to Stanley Park – higher floors have the best vantage points.
Our stay here was exactly what we wanted – great location, excellent accommodation, good value and friendly service. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

Stayed for 3 nights. Location is good for moving around with many shops and eateries around. The staff at reception were helpful too.

I was a little taken aback though as I have never been to a hotel with such narrow corridors. Our room was only 2 steps from the lift landing. However the room was a very good size. Was originally on 3rd level but managed to make a switch to a room on 12th level the day after check-in.

Overall it’s okay for a couple of days’ stay.

The little Adobe restaurant in the hotel had good food. We took public transportation and walked around the area and window shopped at all the high end stores

We arrived after our Alaska cruise. Our room was ready for us at 10 AM – a real bonus. And we were upgraded to a lovely suite on the 4th floor with a balcony overlooking the front busy street. But it was quiet when the door was closed. There was a baggage storage so we could visit the city on our last day before catching the red-eye flight back to MI. The staff was friendly and helpful.

My wife and I enjoyed a short get-away to Vancouver and chose to stay at the Blue Horizon. Our room was on the 4th floor (more expensive as one goes up, and that wasn’t important to us). Windows on two sides, and a small balcony facing north to Burrard Inlet (but not particularly visible from our room). King size bed; very comfortable, lots of pillows (my wife liked that), clean. Very spacious room; comfortable without being exhorbitantly large. The bathroom was fine. The tub is old and will soon be replaced, but the shower was perfectly okay. There is a restaurant in the hotel, although we chose to eat elsewhere. We would definitely stay here again.

And 2 more to go. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We have used this as a base for tooing and frooing and it works well. They even kindly let us into our room early today after arriving back from a cruise. Great location and good sized rooms. They are happy to store bags of you are coming back in a few days so we I’ll take this opportunity. We were recommended here by our travel agent. A great cafe down stairs with good priced food.

While Blue Horizon Hotel is not the newest and most fashionable hotel, it is nonetheless a great stay. Centrally located near many restaurants, cafes and shops, it is ideal for those who prefer walking over driving. My friends and I were able to walk to Downtown Vancouver restaurants and bars and even to the waterfront. The room itself was very comfortable, the staff was friendly and attentive and the view from our higher floor room was nice. My only advice is: try to avoid the usual check-in and check-out times as the lobby and elevators are pretty tiny and can get really crowded. Overall, we had a pleasant stay here

My stay with Blue Horizon was fantastic. There were two problems: 1 there was no room service, 2 – we were in a group booking and one room had been given away but that was quickly rectified. The restaurant is very good, the rooms were large, clean and accommodating. The staff was amazing. Definitely a good bang for my buck.

Blue Horizon Hotel Vancouver Second Review
We stayed at the Blue Horizon a couple of times last year and were very happy with our comfortable, clean room. The location was excellent too. There is a restaurant on the main floor where we had a very good breakfast and dinner. It was great for shopping and lots of nice places to eat. We enjoyed visiting Granville Island and Gastown. Not far from Canada Place either if you are departing on a cruise or disembarking from one.
