GEC Granville Suites

This hotel was in a great location in Vancouver. Fairly reasonably priced with free wifi & parking. Was a little noisy with the street & rooms and our toilet got blocked but aside from that it was clean & tidy.

Got this hotel at a great price on Expedia and though I’d give it a shot.
Turned out to be an awesome hotel, large rooms, fairly new, clean and modern renos to the rooms.
White Spot Restaurant is attached
Its a little far, on the far end of downtown.

I stayed here once before when it was the Best Western and my first time stay since it changed hands to the GEC. The rooms are an ok size – not huge but not cramped. The rooms and the lobby are very clean and it’s in a central location in Vancouver. For the price I found it a very decent value and the parking was free although I was told by the front desk reception that is only until March of 2017.

First of all, this hotel exceeded my expectations by a mile. The check in staff was nice and when I arrived, It was too early to check in and so they held my luggage while I went to explore Vancouver. Once I got to my room, it looked exactly like the photos and it was pretty clean except for the bathroom. There was urine on the toilet. The location was great with a bus stop with multiple lines within less than a minute walk from the hotel. There are 2 subway stations within around 10ish minutes from the hotel (Vancouver City Center and Yaletown Roundhouse). The Main Street to the Vancouver City Center Station, Granville Street, does look a little shady so I do prefer using the Yaletown Roundhouse station especially at night times. I also slipped on the bathtub and thankfully only broke my nail and didnt hurt anything else. The bathtub is extremely slippery so remember to use the mat that they provide. I was just stupid not to use it because it did look pretty brown and dirty. The only other thing would be that the cleaners would came knocking at my door at 10am to clean the room. I was about to leave and so she was very accommodating and said she would be back after I leave. I thought 10am seemed a little early but maybe I’m just a late bird. Other than that, for the price I paid for(around $50/night tax included) I can’t complain at all. It was a nice and comfortable hotel with nice decor and in a great city center location. I’d highly recommend it!

Everything was perfect for me, a solo senior traveller. The hotel was in a great location close to public transit and several interesting downtown venues such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, public library, and the Yaletown Skytrain station. The room was clean and amenities included a microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker, and free WiFi. More than this, I was lucky to meet the extraordinary front desk person, Francesco Paolo Ciminale. He assisted me in setting up WiFi on my iPad and explained how to activate the elevator with my room keycard. He suggested places to go such as the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and VanDusen Botanical Garden and gave me directions for walking to the Vancouver Art Gallery. He was the consummate host and ambassador for Vancouver and surrounding areas. I stayed for three nights and Francesco made my visit a truly wonderful experience.

Stopped here for 4 nights at the start of our tour of B.C.
A lovely hotel on the edge of Downtown Vancouver. We received a very warm welcome on arrival. We had a room facing out onto Granville street which was a bit noisy with traffic and also a bus stop underneath our room. The room itself was very spacious and had all the facilities you would expect.

The area nearby is a little run down and there are a lot of beggars at that end of Granville street, however at no time did we feel threatened and were quite happy to walk past them.

My one grouse with the hotel was that the coffee making facilities were not cleaned or replenished each day although the room was serviced. Reception gave us fresh supplies as required.

Unfortunately for me the previous occupants had turned the fridge to the coldest setting so in the morning when I went to get my insulin it had frozen rendering it unusable.
I mention this as a warning to anybody putting insulin in a fridge to check the setting first.

Arriving early at about 11am check in was not until 3pm after a long flight I was devastated but the staff were very nice allowing me to check in early. My room was well equipped with a fridge, microwave, safe and TV. I found it an average size, it definitely wasn’t incredibly spacious but it met the needs of a family spending most of the day out. The appliances were well maintained other than a reading lamp not working, but it was something so minor that I didn’t use it was not an issue and I am sure they would have fixed it for us if I asked them to.

The location is about a 10 – 15 minute walk from town passing a lot of homeless people, an adult store and a shop selling marijuana. The house keeping service was pretty poor frequently not making the bed, not replenishing the tissues or toiletries. But the room was to a high standard of cleanliness. Beds were comfortable and I would have slept well had the walls not been so thin. I was unfortunate enough the be near a group who were shouting a banging around all night. I phoned reception and security spoke to them but there are only so many times you can call up, at 11pm one of them starting playing a guitar with the door open!

Overall this is a fine place to stay for your trip in Vancouver at a reasonable price.

Clean and great view over town. Rooms are large. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant nearby (10% discount) in the White Spot. Facilities are fine (sauna, jacuzzi, gym). I would stay here again. 20 min walk to Robson, 30 min walk to Canada Place.

This hotel surprised me. The lobby is ok, not much to it, but the room was great! It had beautiful hard “wood” floors, a nice modern design, two double beds, very comfortable, and a modern updated bathroom. The room also had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and hot water electric pot, far more amenities than any other room on this trip.

I stayed for two nights at the hotel, it was clean and quite. Had a nice little outdoor area up on the top floor. Hotel is about a 15 min walk to Robson Street and Granville Markets. Close to Yaletown restaurants for dinner. Front staff aren’t overly friendly though. Overall an average hotel nothing to fancy about it.

Nice hotel, very clean and well located (downtown, 7-8 minutes of walking of the Yaletown-Roundhouse skytrain station). If you’re a tourist, the hotel is close to one of the stop of the hop on hop off bus (5 minutes of walking). The staff is friendly and welcoming, especially Francesco at the main desk who helped us for the many questions we had. We will come back!

The price was great
Cons: The pillows are too fluffy. My personal preference is a flatter pillow. Trivial I know
I like Whitespot restaurant, but if it’s attached to the hotel, and the main breakfast source for the hotel, maybe more than a 10% discount if you go there. Had reserved a “King Suite”, but not really sure what that meant as my room was just 2 double beds, not a king bed.

Spacious, comfortable room (double with 2 double beds), fridge, microwave, coffee making, good selection of TV channels, friendly efficient staff. Good location in downtown Vancouver and excellent value and facilities compared to nearby Ramada and HoJo (where we have stayed previously).
