Hotel Blu Vancouver

We booked a room here for a big anniversary trip. The room was beautiful. The “fishbowl” shower that has been described does come with a shade for privacy, so that wasn’t a problem. In fact, the shower was lovely. We had a little balcony and enjoyed a few meals out there, looking out on the stadium and the high rises that line false creek. In the package we booked, there was no breakfast included (though we were given one complimentary ticket for breakfast on our first day). The buffet is gourmet–lots of amazing baked goods. But it’s expensive–$21 per person. The room was quiet–partly because of the air conditioning’s white noise . . . and that’s where our only problem was. The weather (mid-July) was great while we were in Vancouver–72-82 the whole 10 days. And the A/C worked like a dream for the first four days, but then it just stopped. There was a fan, but the temperature in the room rose throughout the day to about 78 and didn’t ever seem to go down. I called the front desk and they sent someone up. He said that the A/C was working (it wasn’t), and that our problem was that we had set the thermostat too low (68). He suggested we set it at 71 and that would somehow get things moving again. It didn’t. The next day, I called again and that evening we came home to a fan sitting at the foot of our bed. Even with the fan, the temperature in the room was in 77-79 degrees. It was cooler in the hallway and significantly cooler outside! Obviously, for the rate we were paying I had hoped for a more effective response to our complaint. I thought perhaps they’d give us a break on the room–a discount for the 6 days without A/C, but no. They said that, because we booked the room with Expedia, there was no way they could give us a discount. I guess the lesson here is to request a room change if your A/C goes out.

Stayed 4 nites staff very friendly helpful, close to everything shopping tourist things. Used the pool sauna a lot very clean well maintained. Great gym as well nice equipment. Rooms are roomy no view where I was but no matter. Restaurants nearby very good Vietnamese just round the corner. Expensive hotel but very comfortable

Totally nice, but the bathroom was like fishbowl.
The coffee machine was Nespresso which I love. Cool.
The amenity goods were not my liking because the shampoo and the conditioner were for men.

Location is good: there are BC place, good restaurants and bars. Gas town is also close.

Just booked this hotel for a single night as we were on a tight schedule
I had arranged in advance that, if we had arrived on time they would have stored our luggage if the room wasn’t but, in the event the train was about 5 hours late, so it was only for an hour or so. They were very prompt in their replies to questions
As the room wasn’t ready when we arrived- a little early for check in, we went for a walk, there being no bar in the hotel. Coming back there was a little confusion with the next receptionist still saying the room wasn’t ready, so we waited a while and when I asked again about 15 minutes later, it transpired that it was. The luggage was delivered to the room promptly after I requested it
The room was far better that I had been expecting. It was what I think is described as a loft style room, with a sitting area and the bathroom on the ground floor and the bedroom upstairs. It was extremely spacious, with large flat screen televisions both downstairs and in the bedroom. The bathroom was well appointed with plenty of towels, robes and slippers. One small thing was that the bath toiletries were in a dispenser that was at an ideal height for shower use, but inconvenient for the bath. There was also a fixed glass panel by the bath which must have made cleaning very difficult
There was a nespresso machine with plenty of cartridges. There was also supposed to be a tablet to integrate all electronic devices, but was away for a software update, so I didn’t see that, but wouldn’t have had time to have used it anyhow
The bed was very comfortable and made for a good sleep
There was
We were on the second floor and just down the hall was a business suite which allowed for complimentary document printing, which was ideal for the boarding passes I needed
Also down the corridor was a swimming pool, with steam room and sauna, which I didn’t have time to use, nor the gym, which looked adequately equipped and in use regularly.
Somewhat oddly situated between the gym and the swimming pool was a laundry room with the ice and vending machines. The washers and dryers were complimentary, which was a boon and I did manage to try them out
We didn’t try the hotel for breakfast as we had a fairly early flight, but checkout was quick and smooth
I have to say that I was very surprised and impressed by my stay at this hotel and only wish I could have spent longer

Good hotel with helpful and friendly staff. Good position but Robson Street has expensive shopping and I believe there are better areas. Good comfortable beds and great pillows. Would definitely stay there again if I ever return.

Hotel staff couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming and were always on hand to offer us tips for the best ways to explore Vancouver. We stayed for 10 days and had a fabulous time. I particularly loved the bed, pool and hot tub!

I booked this hotel for my parents’ stay so they could go to U2. They LOVED it!They loved their King room with terrace, and all of the perks with the room. They enjoyed the unique fare offered at the breakfast buffet. Most of all, they were ecstatic with the location beside BC Place: they could see the crowds mingling at BC Place, so they left to stand in line early (and got in quickly), and were able to get back to their room quite quickly after the show.

As I was paying for the accommodation, but not staying at the hotel myself, I needed to contact the hotel in advance to make sure that everything was arranged to go off without an issue. Both Richard and Ioanna were invaluable. They made sure that everything that needed to be completed was processed without a hitch.

Ideally situated in Vancouver to access all the city has to offer. Hotel was nice room was big. Facilities were fairly basic at the hotel.
Breakfast was nice even though we ate out for breakfast half of the time.
Staff were very friendly and helpful with all that we asked of them

My stay in Hotel Blu was wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. They gave us suggestions for food and a nail spa. The location is good. There are several restaurants in close walking distance. We took several tours and were picked up at the hotel. We came to go on a cruise and wanted to see Vancouver before we got on the ship. Hotel Blu had good revues and they were correct. I would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel for a very nice place to stay in Vancouver.

Whilst the location is ideal- this overpriced hotel is not! No hot water after getting in after long day of travelling- confusion over a hairdryer- was told they did not have one available in the hotel when it was in the room all along. There are better options close by- the website is deceiving and while the rooms have flash- the basics are missing….

Excellent. Close to everything. Hotel very modern. Very comfortable. Quiet. Romantic. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We left with so many great memories and the hotel was part of that overall experience.

Modern hotel. Friendly staff. Great location: BC Place – Rogers Arena – Food – Shopping. Super clean. Comfortable beds. Amazing pillows. Rainfall shower in bathroom. Excellent fitness area. Pool a bit small. Hot tub is wonderful.

We stayed in Vancouver for the Rugby 7’s and wanted a hotel that was close to BC Place. The location was great. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and the room was clean and inviting. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here because we were going to an event at Rogers Arena. Directions said it would be a ten minute walk from the hotel to Rogers but it was way less than that. Lots of close places to grab a bite to eat or great cup of coffee (Waves). The staff was quick to offer a late check out if we wanted one and valet parking was a breeze. The only downside is that we couldn’t stay longer to check out the pool, but maybe next time we will have to stay a few nights.
Nice hotel with friendly service conveniently located to sporting venues and downtown restaurants.
the breakfast buffet and staff preparing the food could be improved though.   I would stay there again

Reviews
This was a terrific boutique hotel in
Yaletown. Convenient location, walking distance to BC Place and Rogers Arena, shopping and many restaurants. Also close to the sky train station. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This is ideally situated for Granville Island, shopping, access to airport and especially for events taking place at the stadium. Best bed I have ever had, modern hotel. Best Breakfast I have ever had.

Great staff, close to all restaurants and shopping in downtown Vancouver. Room is well kept thru out our stay. We got the room with a balcony and even on early March the good temps and the sun came out for a few hours to enjoy it. Buffet breakfast is a foodie breakfast, they still have bacon and eggs if that’s what you like. Went to whisler for a few days and all my snowboarding gear was screaming to be washed. Hotel has free laundry and the front desk set me up with soap as well. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was very spacious and ergonomic. The tv and drawer station was very functional. We enjoyed the expression machine. This is an amazing hotel for a very reasonable price.

The location of this hotel is great, just near downtown. Most importantly, the service is very personal and warmth. The front desk tried everything to make my staying easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel.

BLISS… we had the best nights sleeps in the wonderful comfortable beds and very quiet rooms. The decor is classic modern and has a very calming effect, with lovely spacious rooms. Wonderful friendly staff, that went above and beyond for you. Highly recommend staying at Hotel BLU

5 minute walk to Rogers Arena, super clean, feels brand new. Extremely quiet. Our room had no view, just the street and the condo across the street. Not sure if any rooms have much of a view but lovely room makes up for it.

Green Features: recycling options of organics and regular recycling paper/plastics – towels only washed if you choose to place them on the floor
The location downtown is great. It is in a good area within walking distance to several places to eat/drink. The staff was friendly and helpful upon check-in and throughout our stay. The room was clean and it was nice to have turn-down service. For being right down in the city, the rooms were large. We had a corner room which provided lots of windows and natural light. The pool was on the smaller side, but nice to have an area to use. I will mention that there isn’t really a “lobby” area of the hotel – and it doesn’t really offer a place to eat or bar.I would recommend this hotel to any friends/family.

Great service, location and pricing. Super clean! Staff was fantastic(even when we broke a glass on accident) Very polite and helpful! The pool, spa, and sauna were awesome. I cannot wait to stay here again!!!

We went to the Boat Show at BC Place. Stayed 2 nights at the hotel. We were a bit early for check in but the front desk accomadated us without asking. Valet service was immediate and our room was super clean and comfortable.
Each time we met a staff member in the hall or in he lobby they had smiles and friendly greeting.
We returned to our room on the second night to find our bed was turned down with chocolates on the pillow. A beautiful touch.
Absolutely nothing but positive comments for our stay at Hotel Blu

Green Features: Trash separation bins is a nice idea. The shampoo and soap dispensers are very eco friendly. No wasting of partially used bars of soap and shampoo bottles. These can be a chore to keep clean but the ones in this hotel were spotlessly clean
Nice Hotel, polite helpful staff, however a surprise $30/day bill for parking in their underground parkade will keep us from coming back. With tax I was charged $82 for parking for our two day stay. I assume this covered the low advertised rate which in my books is untruthful.

Clean, convenient location, small but comfortable room. The only detractor was the amount of hall noise which could be heard in the room: ice machine, people speaking in a volume appropriate for a sporting event rather than a hotel hallway, cleaning staff…

Hotel BLU is convenient to most everything. The staff is warm, good humored, helpful and considerate. Fun, too. Parking is conveniently located on the premises. I couldn’t have been more pleased and if given the chance to return to Vancouver, I’ll choose this accommodation again. Thanks, to all the staff members ~ from booking, check-in, luggage assistance, valet parking, directions to various points and places of interest, transportation if needed and so much more. Salute ~ Hotel BLU!

Upgraded hotel room with attention to details. Contemporary in a great location. Free internet in rooms. Parking $39 a day. Coffee pot, tea kettle, glass water bottle in the room to fill up with filtered water from ice machine, room tablet for use with internet or movie viewing since it links with tv!, fridge, microwave, slippers, robes. Bikes for use, indoor pool jacuzzi and sauna, gym! Bathroom has shade you can lower for privacy if desired!

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It is very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located in downtown Vancouver. Walking distance to stores, restaurants, stadiums, and tourist attractions. We enjoyed the fun designed shower with glass wall to see through from the sleeping area, got a laugh out of us. Swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, and fitness room completely met our needs. We didn’t have breakfast there, seemed pricey but can’t say anything about the selection.

This is a clean, comfortable, and conveniently located hotel. Close to stores, tourist attractions, sports stadiums. We enjoyed the room without a carpet, which is so much more hygienic. The shower was designed fun and got a laugh out of us. Beds were comfortable but pillows were slightly high, but all very clean. Swimming pool, sauna and hot tub was clean and met our needs. Fitness room was nicely equipped, clean, with working equipment.
