Ramada Downtown Vancouver Granville

This hotel is barely downtown it’s not walking distance to anything. It’s on Granville which I have now learned is a very dirty and unsafe street full of drifters, drug addicts, prostitutes and bars. There is a bar right beside the hotel that keeps their music cranked until 330 in the morning so don’t count on getting any sleep. When I stayed here the fire alarm was also broken and went off 3 times through the night. They charge $18 extra for valet parking as their parking lot is a complete joke and only fits about 20 cars. There are lots less than a block away that charge half or less the amount they do for parking. When we arrived the front of the hotel smelled like urine as someone had urinated on the street directly outside the front door. This is not a part of town to bring your kids. The free breakfast is at the bar beside the hotel, a run down hole with terrible staff. You can have eggs or pancakes. Toast with no butter and serve yourself warm tap water to drink. DO NOT touch the fruit or juice!

Just your regular downtown hotel. Nothing fancy but clean and friendly service. Close to the city center, no car or transportation needed. Valet parking $18,45 a day which is normal for Vancouver. Rooms okay air conditioning etc. Breakfast not included but possible at $10.

The hotel is shabby and not in the best part of downtown. The club next door is loud and has a crazy vibe. There are quite a few homeless people around. Gas town and the waterfront aren’t really in walking distance.

Whilst this hotel is “downtown”, it’s not in the nicest of areas. If you get a room Granville side you may as well sleep in the street as the sound proofing is poor. Aircon is good but the unit is enormous, old and noisy. Overall the hotel needs modernising and a facelift.

We checked in around 9:00pm on a Thursday night for a two night stay. First night we got to the room to go to bed after traveling all day and found that the sheets had not been changed on the bed. Sheets were wrinkled and there was black fuzz on the bed from someone’s sox. I was too tired to complain and had the sheets changed the next morning.

THEN, about 9:00pm on Friday night a DJ started playing at the club next door. Our room literally rattled until 2:00am. I travel a lot and this was literally one of the worst hotel stays ever.

The staff was courteous, but basically helpless about these problems

Chose this hotel due to its proximity to the port (Canada Place). Rooms were decent sized, clean, had the standard amenities, but quite dated. Wifi service was complimentary and pretty strong. Breakfast was non-descript and the breakfast area sad looking. Coffee was your usual watered down coffee. At least they had bagels and cream cheese Location was okay, near enough the port

The staff though were quite helpful with our luggage and hailing taxi cabs.

Good location BUT very noisy with night club booming through room till 3am. No sleep! Couldn’t be moved to quieter floor on request as hotel full. I would NOT recommend! Staff told me the night club couldn’t be heard on my floor but it was like being in the middle of the night club! Do not stay here if you are looking for a quiet hotel.

I enjoyed my stay at Ramada this is a great location and the staff was very knowledgeable of the area.

My first impression on arriving at the lobby was that the hotel looked a little dated, not helped by the fact that rooms didn’t seem to be ready on time. However, the rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The area the hotel is situated in isn’t great, a lot of homeless people begging right outside the hotel lobby. Not far from Granville Island and downtown.

The hotel is right on the boarder for areas that you would be careful with your walking. The hotel and staff are really great. Always greeting you upon arrival, helpful to find something and they offer Valet parking, just stop your car in front of the hotel and they take it from there.

It is downtown so most places are close by. It is also close to the ratty part of downtown with shuttered stores and junkies sleeping in the street. Nightclubs causing noise till 3 am could be heard in spite of being put on the 3rd floor, however this did not affect my sleep as it was muffled. If you are sensitive this may cause you problems. Rooms are on the smaller side probably due to it being older. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.

We booked the room for a single night and was completely thrown off that you need to go to the alley in order to get to their parking. Once inside, the front desk staff wasn’t friendly and was almost offended that there were people checking in. Wasn’t aware you need to pay for a valet parking.
Once we were checked in and found our room, the room looks really dirty. The room didn’t look like the photos; carpet was dirty, and the room had a disgusting smell. For the amount of money we paid for, over three hundred sixty American dollars, we expected to be more upper class. However, we were completely thrown off by it.
The place is loud at night, due to the club directly next to it. The music was so loud you can feel the bass rambling on the windows and walls. It lasted til 3 am and we couldn’t get any sleep.
We choose to pay with continental breakfast, and were given the breakfast voucher to use. We went into the restaurant next door and were completely in surprise. The waitress wasn’t friendly, and we didn’t know the voucher wasn’t part of the breakfast bar. She was rude and told us to go. We went back to the front desk and the dudes behind the reception desk didn’t know what was going on. My wife was so mad, we didn’t get any breakfast for my three children.
Outside of the hotel, there are homeless people around and the location isn’t safe. If we had known this beforehand, we wouldn’t even choose that hotel. Learned firsthand, and totally regret staying there. Made our trip to Vancouver a bad experience.
Just a warning to anyone else that is thinking of staying here, please look else where. You’ll regret just like we did and would never stay in another Ramada again.

This hotel is a good location with easy access to everything Although I do prefer the West Pender location this one was close to Yale town, the water front and a pleasant walk to the little ferry to Granville Island.

Could not believe the price of this hotel downtown Vancouver with a huge country star in town performing. Staff was great
Great location. 15 min walk to BC place or Rogers Arena. 10 min walk to water taxi for Grenville Island. Lots of restaurants and bars near by. Room was small but clean and funtional. Bed was comfortable.
But this hotel did have it’s downside.
For our taste..pillows were rock hard. We requested new/softer pillows but none came.We ended up putting clothes in the pillow case and used them for pillows.
We were in room 520 which was at the back of the building and an alley way outside our window..garbage truck came early every morning to collect the trash..very noisy.
For the reason of the pillows alone, I would not stay at this hotel again but that is the only reason.
Great location, clean rooms, room was a quite small with 2 the double beds. Great friendly staff.

The staff – both at checkin and checkout were very friendly and pleasant. Remarkably so. At $88 the room was very well priced, compared to nearby competition, and clean. I really value quiet and this room delivered; it was a peaceful night.

Stayed with 2 adults and 3 kids, this was the only hotel out of 4 i called that put us all up in 1 room. Stay was great, room was great
The front desk clerk was very helpful and nice. Parking was confusing and the room was a little small with one of the beds right next to the door. Bathroom was a good size
We had the king room. Smallest room I have every had … anywhere. Our shower didn’t work. The prices were hiked for that weekend ( wish I had known.) cost us over 600$ for 2 nights. The 3rd night being only 74$. Very loud. Some kind of construction going on. But good location

We booked straight through the hotel and got a great price for a 5 night stay. We were lucky enough to be booked into the sixth floor which I understand to be a good thing. Apparently it can get quite noisy on the lower levels. Very central and close to everything, the rooms were cleaned daily and were comfortable for two people. We both had our own bed, in saying this, the room is quite small, I would not try and fit four people in these rooms despite being advertised as a four person room.
I did have an issue with wifi connection and could only connect downstairs, not a massive deal but was slightly annoying when it came to keeping in touch with friends at home. Overall a good stay in a comfortable hotel.

We were downtown overnight for a Canucks game. The room was clean, well decorated and basic. We had no complaints and the bed was so comfortable! The location of this hotel is optimal. We spent a couple hours at the Morrisey (?) next door to the hotel. It was also great. There is also a loud club, Twelve West on the other side. Neither impeded our sleep. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Great price for a room, had a comfy bed and standard amenities. Rooms were well insulated, didn’t hear much from neighbours. Quick walk from the Skytrain and easy to walk to downtown attractions. Safe and clean.

I work downtown and live in Langley. We had a show to got o and rather than go all the way home late we decided to stay downtown. Got a killer deal at this hotel and really didn’t have the greatest expectations.
We were pleasantly surprised at the lovely room we stayed. No noise…bed so comfy I slept like a baby. Fantastic hot water even at 7 AM and wonderful massage type shower head. Super clean. Lovely pub downstairs. Different specials daily. Great little single cup coffee maker that uses tiny filters. We loved it. I read negative reviews. We simply experienced nothing negative. Lovely girls and gentlemen at the desk and we are actually going to come back next month and do it again!!

Was a very good experience. Great location. Sky train only 2 min walk away. Close to all the downtown activities. Hotel is clean friendly staff. Easy checkin and check out. Will definitely be recommending to family and friends

Thursday & Friday night stay. Great location downtown, I’m 7 months pregnant travelling with a small dog and toddler. Little loud at night but not enough to wake my toddler or for me to not get any sleep. Love that it’s downtown beside a Blenz!!!

The other reviews are correct… the music next door at night is SO loud! The bar next door to the hotel (not the one where the music is coming from) is pretty fun. Hotel room is average. Do yourself a favor and get some poutine from Fritz right around the corner.

Had a social shopper deal for this hotel which included parking for a very good price.
The hotel is in a convenient location for the entertainment district, but is kind of on the dirtier end of Granville.
Front desk staff were friendly but not the most organized or client service oriented.
Don’t let the trendy lobby fool you. The rooms and hallways are abysmally dated. Hallways have an odour, and the floors creak.
The room seemed clean enough, but was also a bit tight and dated. The bed and pillows, however, were excellent.
The noise, though… front desk said there was a club next door so you may hear it until 2AM. It’s VERY loud. And went on well past 2AM.
Walls and doors also thin, could easily here regular conversation in hallways.
I would not recommend this hotel, unless you really truly only care about a bed and a shower.
