Shangri La Hotel Vancouver

Great location, amazing service, and beautiful facilities. My friends and I stayed for one night for my birthday and we could not have chosen a better hotel to celebrate with. We had an absolutely amazing experience and I hope to be back soon.

Great location in the downtown area and great service! All staff members were extremely friendly and helped with any needs we had. The room itself had an amazing view of the city center and felt luxurious! Definitely recommend!

Frist of all they took care of our bags soon as we got there. Second the hotel is very Asian. Third the rooms have lovely views. Fourth everything in the room is very futuristic. Fifth the pool is loverly. Last the hotel has wonderful service.

Die hard Ritz Carlton fans, we were converted by the tremendous service and facilities of this lovely hotel. From arrival to departure they looked after us so well. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a junior suite with the best bed and bedding we have ever slept in plus a huge bathroom filled with great L’Occitane toiletries. So many lovely touches; thick “electric” curtains, free water, turn down service with little tubes of hand cream and a cool coffee machine. The only thing we didn’t like were the luminous light switches which we had to cover up to help us sleep! Terrific breakfast and overall top service especially from Jorvin McSween the concierge, who recommended a great restaurant for us and ensured we were well looked after there.
Of course, luxury and service in this first rate location costs but we felt it was worth every penny.

Stayed here for one night and already know I am coming back next time I am in Vancouver. Besides being situated in a perfect location close to restaurants and luxurious shops, the staff was beyond friendly and the service was amazing. The room was also beautiful (I mean..it is the Shangri-La after all..) and the whole hotel smelled like Jasmine & Bergamot which I was obsessed with!

The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The room was gorgeous and so was the view. When we got to the room there was a bottle of wine and a cup of fresh local strawberries waiting for us! If you’re planning a luxurious trip to Vancouver or even a nice staycation, this is the place to go!

We stayed for several days one week and came back and spent a couple of days the next week.

Beds were comfortable. We were on the 15th floor which didn’t really have a great view if that is what interests you. The suite was large bathroom large and lovely.

Breakfast in market restaurant was excellent. We ate dinner one evening and it was outstanding. The concierges were beyond helpful especially Jeni and Karin. We stay in many hotels every year and this was amongst the best. We will return. Staff was terrific.

Only negative was the scent in the reception area and main lobby. Good clean air is fine with me

Booked to stay at this hotel through Amex platinum fine hotel and resort program. This hotel is so outstanding in so many ways:

1. Location. Excellent location right in the heart of downtown. You can walk everywhere and it’s very convenient. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby such as Joe Forte, Kirin, the Keg, Gotham and fast food. Not to mention the market by JG is right inside the hotel. A supermarket just next door.

2. Since we live in the metro Vancouver area so we arrived by car. We parked the car outside the hotel on the street (Alberni street) and parking is $4 /hr for a max of 2hrs. It was sufficient for us to park there and checked in at the hotel. Parking on the street is free after 10pm in that area. But there are some spots on thurlow that actually has free street parking after 6pm. If you are lucky enough to grab one of those spots then you are good to go for the whole night.

3. The room was booked through FHR so I emailed them earlier to ask about the possibility of the upgrade. While upgrade is normally done at check in but because there was a good number of rooms available so they gave me an exception of guaranteed upgrade. I booked a superior room and was given an executive king with balcony (2 categories upgrade). The room was also ready at 12 noon so we were able to check in early and we stayed till 4pm the next day.

For those who are not familiar with eh FHR program. It’s a program for Amex platinum carders and often you’ll get some benefits from booking for the participating hotels. Benefits are usually early check in if available, guaranteed 4pm check out, free WiFi, free daily breakfast X2, free upgrade if available, credit to be spent at the hotel, in my case $100usd, and sometimes get a night free if you stay 3 or more nights.

4. It’s It’s a pet friendly hotel and pet cleaning fee is $50 per stay. Its policy says one pet per room but they made an exception for our 2 small dogs. We paid a total of $100 pet cleaning fee. They had dog beds and bottled water ready in the room.

5. Their staff was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We felt welcomed whenever we walked in the hotel. The check in staff was very informative and took the time to explain the benefits of the FHR program. Breakfast is supposed to be enjoyed at the restaurant but they were able to accommodate us in the room because we had our dogs with us. The breakfast that is included as part of the package is you can order anything as long as the total doesn’t exceed $76.

6. The executive king room with balcony is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and clean. It has a separate sitting area and the bathroom is just luxurious.

7. There is health club in the hotel exclusively for hotel guests and chi spa customers. I used the pool and the hot tub. While it was still a bit cool to be in the pool but the hot tub was very nice.

8. We ended up spending the hotel credit of usd100 towards in room dining. At a hotel like this I did have high expectations for their food but I would say it was average. We ordered the black truffle burger, ceasar salad and iron flank steak. I hate to say but there is really nothing memorable about it. The service staff who pushed the cart in just left everything as is and didn’t even make the table for us. It was quite uncomfortable to eat on the cart as there was no room for the legs. We found out the next day during breakfast that the sides of the table could be pulled up which made the breakfast much more enjoyable.

We had a wonderful stay at the Shangri-la Vancouver and am very pleased that they honored everything as listed on the FHR program. This hotel is beautiful and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Definitely will try out the different Shangri-la around the world!

I stayed at the hotel for a week and the service was exceptional from start to end. No matter what staff I interacted with, everyone made you feel amazing and gave incredible service. I was very impressed indeed. Well done Shangri-La

Arrival at the hotel is through the basement car park to reception – not very inviting and a little odd. Apart form that curious layout the hotel was typical 5 star with very attentive staff and excellent facilities.

We had an executive suite that offered more than amble accommodation space, but as with any city centre hotel the views were far from inspiring!

We always stay at the Shang or Pac Rim. Love the service, room layouts and city views. Always consistent all around. Breakfast at Market was very good! We were offered a promotional upgrade which included breakfast for two for an additional $50. Great Value!

However, the location was close to the waterfront with reasonable places for lunch or a drink sitting overlooking the harbour. The seaplane service to Victoria, Vancouver Island leave from the harbour a few minutes walk from the hotel. If visiting Vancouver Island a trip by seaplane is highly recommended.

For the past 3 years we have traveled to Whistler/Vancouver for our family January vacation. We’ve stayed at the Four Seasons in Vancouver – which was very disappointing in service, the Rosewood which had fabulous service but rooms were on the smaller size and this year at the Shangri La Vancouver. The Shangri La turned out to be the DIAMOND in the rough! Service was FLAWLESS! Rooms were Excellent! (What other hotel housekeeping staff leaves you a Thank You note for a room tip everyday?)
Spa – treatment was excellent! Although they really need to up grade the waiting room area – chairs in the waiting area were filthy and stained with years of use! Door to the locker rooms were locked and you needed to wait for the person at the Spa Bar to swipe their key to let you into the locker room. No steam room for men, only for women and that was not the most appealing! This is certainly not the 5 star amenity for a 5 star hotel!
Lastly, Vanna at the restaurant – Market by Jean – George’s is WONDERFUL! She is amazing! Her service, and unbelievable memory made her the “STAND OUT” for our stay at the Shangri La! Thank you so much Vanna!
When you’re dealing with a group of 7, and everyone is beyond pleased and happy you can pretty much say you’ve achieved perfection and that is the Shangri La Vancouver – THANK YOU!

We stayed at the Shangri La hotel for 2 nights on our way back to the airport. What a beautiful hotel & the staff were lovely. When we got there our room had not been correctly booked through our travel agent but this wasn’t a problem at all for them. They gave us a wonderful room & looked after us. At the end of each day all 6 of us used the rooftop spa & jacuzzi & also their well equipped gym.
The location was great too. My teenage girls were thrilled that It was only a short walk to a big shopping centre & loads of other shops.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Vancouver.

From check in to check out a delightful stay with my every need fulfilled and expanded on. Made a week long business trip exceedingly relaxing. Amenities were on point rooms were clean and cleaned at turn down as well. The concierge was thoughtful in providing tips that would be helpful.

Easy check in.
Clean maintained room.
Work station, mini bar, small living room area, above average bed, although still slams around and makes noise during intercourse. Bathroom was large and up to date. The wifi signal was good. No real issues. Heated rooftop pool was fun & clean.
I don’t see the 5 star rating but it’s clearly not a dump either.
Love the location, close to everything. The hotel was fabulous. Room was clean. The front desk staff couldn’t do more for you, anticipating your every need. The breakfast was delicious too! warm pool outdoor on the fifth floor is too good…The Concierge staff were also very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Our five night stay was excellent. The facilities included a top tier gym, pool, hot tub, sauna room. Our room had the most comfortable king size bed with angel pillows (fall asleep in five seconds flat) with a shower, a tub and a view of Georgia St. Great staff and service, very attentive and diligent. Walk outside and cross the street for some great shopping, and food. Coast restaurant, Thierry french bakery and Robson street are all a block away.
If I only had one criticism, its that the pool-side service was slow.
Will re-visit.

Celebrated my birthday in the Orchid Suite including a romance package! It was a fabulous night! I can’t say enough about the sales coordinator, the hotel and all the fantastic staff that works there. Everyone was so friendly & attentive! The dinner was delicious and so was the breakfast! I’d been to the restaurant when it just opened and had forgotten how good it was! The chef is very talented! His sister was at the restaurant that night with some girlfriends so my husband went up to her to tell her what a great chef her brother is! Everyone had a great time, loved the room and the talk of the night was the toilet in the ensuite! LOL! So many buttons to push and some guests couldn’t figure out how to flush it! Too funny! We absolutely loved it! I would recommend this hotel to anyone!! I look forward to coming back again in the future!

Apologies for late review. After arriving back from a weeks cruise in Alaska on Celebrity Infinity we walked to the hotel. It was very early in the morning but our room was ready and we were told we could check in. Fabulous. So unpacked and had a lovely day sight seeing. As our flight was late to go the following day the hotel gave us a late check out too. Even more fabulous. Now the room. We had an executive balcony king room and it was gorgeous. Loads of room. Walk in wardrobe. Massive comfy bed. A huge bathroom with separate bath and shower. Lovely toiletries. In room safe, nespresso, personal bar (chargeable) and wi-fi. The covered balcony was quite small but that didn’t matter. The view was over one of the main roads on one side and the pool on the other. Hotel is situated downtown and is a stone’s throw from the main shopping area and about half hour walk from Stanley Park. A great final night in a wonderful city. Would highly recommend.

Was in Vancouver for day of business and overnight. Rapid check in with personalized service. Was upgraded to 1 bedroom suite. Luxurious rooms richly decorated. Bed was a little soft for me but other was outstanding. Extremely rapid room service and delivery of amenities that I forgot. Nice large desk with rapid internet make work very comfortable to do. Well situated downtown. Would definitely stay again.
Hotel caters to all needs in very professional manner

In summary excellent in all aspects

We stayed for one night and it was a nice hotel, but in my opinion it was overpriced. We liked the location as it was very conveniently located to where we were going. The pool was nice but very small for such a big hotel.

Spent three nights here last week. Very friendly staff (especially on the concierge desk). Staff in the restaurant very well presented and attentive, made it look like everything ran like clockwork. Beautiful breakfasts, really good selection. The room was spotless (superior king size), it even had remote curtains.there was also a complimentary shoe shine which came in handy for my husband’s walking boots as we had spent a week in the Rockies beforehand. The bathroom was fab. It was a special trip for us and we had food treats on arrival and a glass each of prosecco which was very thoughtful.

To celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary, my wife and I opted for a local staycation at Shangri-la. We stayed in an Executive Balcony King Room which was very well-appointed. From the large walk-in closet to the huge marble bathroom, and an inviting living space, the entire room actually felt much larger than it was. In fact, I would go as far as saying that I’ve never seen a room of this size boast a bathroom so large. The bathroom was probably one of the most posh bathrooms I’ve ever seen, with a deep soaker tub and a standup shower. The remote controlled curtains were a really nice touch as well. In the morning, we opted for in-room breakfast which was delicious. Our toddler even enjoyed a nice bowl of congee. It was also nice to be able to get a crib with bedding waiting for us in our room. Our kingsize bed made for some really good sleep, and I liked that they have a pillow bar to help satisfy any kind of sleeper. Neither of us had stayed at the hotel before, and I would definitely consider coming back again.
