Shangri La Hotel Vancouver

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.

Good sized rooms considering it is in the centre of Vancouver with a nice big bathroom (including a large bathtub). The breakfast included is table service rather than a buffet which made a nice change. Nice outdoor patio area with a small swimming pool and hot tub.

Shangri-La Vancouver understand the fine touches of luxury. Most luxury hotels give amazing service and have fabulous amenities. This hotel brings the fine touches to the next level. Everything is done in top quality and is very well thought out. As you progress through your room, you begin to notice that all things have been considered…. location of amenities, quality of fine points, electronics etc. Great location, amazing service, excellent views of the city, quite and relaxing. All one requires and desires!

Shangri La is always my husband and my favourite hotel when going to Vancouver. Spacious & clean guest room, great staff, yummy breakfast / dinner, best location to hang around, dine or shop in downtown! Have tried other brand hotels but we think Shangri La is the best in Vancouver!!! It is highly recommended and we would definitely return!!

So for our romantic Vacations my husband and I have always splurged and gone to the Four Seasons…. But I’ll be honest… Shangri-La BLOWS four Seasons OUT OF THE WATER!! We were amazed at the details in each room.. luxury at its finest! The room was spacious and clean, every staff we interacted with was phenomenal! The front desk staff with extremely friendly and made us feel like we were valued and important, not just another guest walking through the door. Rodolfo at the Concierge was extremely helpful and friendly, and gave us awesome suggestions for Dinner and Breakfast. Even though the hotel is downtown on busy Georgia Street the ambience of the hotel is very relaxing. The location of Hotel cant be beat… walking distance to great shopping and restaurants… everything is just minutes from the Hotel!! Thank you Shangri-La for an amazing time!! I am now trying to convince my Husband we need a Bathroom Mirror TV!!

Our third stay at the Shangri-La was fantastic as always – great downtown location, plush accommodations, and exceptional service. Although this visit had a rough start, the hotel’s exceptionally well-trained staff resolved the problem and restored our high opinion. Based upon this incident, we would have awarded four and a half stars, but unfortunately TripAdvisor does not make that available as an option.

We had booked a one-bedroom suite under the AmEx Fine Hotels and Resorts program. Though the program provides for an upgrade when available, none was available at check in. When we arrived in our suite, it was loudly reverberating and vibrating from construction work on the lobby bar eight floors below. We were extremely unhappy not just with the noise and vibration, but that the hotel staff hadn’t notified us in advance that the hotel was undergoing construction nor that there would be any disturbance whatsoever. One staff member even mentioned that it was Vancouver, so construction should always be expected.

We were downgraded that night to a smaller executive suite further away from the construction, but the air conditioning in that room did not turn on until after multiple requests from the bellman and from us, We were contacted by the front desk and advised that the hotel wanted to send up “an amenity” to make up for the disturbance. A few hours later as we were venturing out the door, a room service attendant arrived with a tray of chocolate-covered strawberries and two empty champagne glasses with an apologetic note from the staff and a separate card from room service stating that we could arrange for delivery of two glasses of sparkling wine.

The next day staff and the hotel redeemed themselves further by upgrading us to a deluxe one-bedroom suite for the remainder of our stay.

The Shangri-La is conveniently located in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown and minutes from Gastown, Yaletown, Granville, and Stanley Park. The only drawback to the location is street noise; the rooms facing Georgia Street can be noisy. But the hotel is otherwise flawless: beautifully decorated in a lush, modern style with luxurious furnishings, extremely comfortable beds, and lavish marble bathrooms; spotlessly clean; and best of all, served by an exceptionally well-trained, friendly, polite, and accommodating staff – front desk, bellman, concierge, valet, room service, and housekeeping. Breakfast in Market is a perfect way to start the day; our server, Vana, was warm and welcoming each morning and even remembered our preferences.

We look forward to our next visit.

As we have grown to expect our Shangri-La experience was spectacular. Breakfast at Market, always a great way to start the day, was perfect and being greeted by Vana every morning was such a joy, as her warmth and hospitality are so appreciated. We always feel welcomed and much like family which is so nice when away from home.

Hotel is really well located for exploring the city and the rooms are really comfortable. The lighting is a little hard to work out as there seems to be a control for everything, but once you’ve nailed that then everything was great.

Service from the staff was really friendly and helpful, particularly the concierge who had some great recommendations for restaurants etc.

You come to expect a certain standard from a Shangri La and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint – we had a great stay and I’d probably stay here again if I returned to Vancouver.

This is our third visit to Shangri La in Vancouver. There is nothing about this hotel that you could complain about. The location is superb. The lobbies give a very exclusive boutique feel. The staff is incredible. The level of professionalism and friendliness is amazing. They make you feel as if you are the only guests in the hotel.

The rates are competitive with other luxury Vancouver hotels. We have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world. In NYC the St Regis, The Plaza, The Pierre, The Peninsula, The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, The Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong and none offer better service or attention to detail than does Shangri La.

Michelle in the Market Grill is a consummate professional. Breakfasts are excellent.

I was very lucky to spend my birthday with friends at the Shangri-La! The staff was so kind to make our stay extra special including the most divine gluten-free and dairy-free cake….with bubbles of course! We also enjoyed cocktails in the Xi Shi Lounge and made time for the outdoor hot tub which is such a treat in the middle of winter. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and slept well in the very, very comfortable beds…and I wish I’d had room in my suitcase for a pillow – they are absolutely perfect!

What makes the Shangri-La really stand out is their people. They are kind, extremely professional, and on top of absolutely everything. We had great service throughout the hotel including the housekeepers and room service servers, the front desk, and Jenni and Stephane at the concierge desk.

It’s such a treat to stay at the Shangri-La.

I am still in awe from THE BEST birthday weekend and best hotel experience I have ever had. I have traveled frequently in my day and had my fair share of good experiences. However, I was absolutely blown away by my Shangri-La weekend. Beyond exceptional. From the moment we walked in, we were taken care of with a level of professionalism, service and care that I can’t say enough about. The level of detail is truly extraordinary.
I will definitely be returning every chance I get. Thank you so much Shangri-La for a wonderful experience and memory!

Shangri-La prides itself on being a Quality 5 Star Hotel. As Vancouver is our home city, I decided to treat my wife to an overnight stay for her 5oth birthday. She was thrilled and it was something we both anticipated.
As a now retired individual who traveled extensively in the Transportation industry, we have stayed in hotels around the world.
We had booked a Deluxe Room and upon arrival the gentleman at check-in offered us an upgrade, normally $80 but he could offer it to us for $40.
On top of the $43 per stay to park our car, how could we say no?

From the moment my wife walked into a room I could see the disappointment in her eyes.She was completely underwhelmed.
Promoted items like flat screen tv’s in the marble washrooms were nowhere to be found.

We were disappointed to find no one on duty at the fitness centre when we dropped by about 9pm. I will say the fitness centre was very classy and nicely laid out.

Prior to leaving our room to check out, I called guest services to ask the valet to have our car ready. Checking out at 10am was early enough but we patiently waited for the one girl on duty to process our departure. From the time I called down to have the car ready and time it took to check out was in excess of 30 minutes. When I approached the Valet, asking about my vehicle he apologized saying he had never heard of me and that someone must have not passed on the message.

Really? My first thought was the 5 Star rating was looking a bit suspect based on our entire overall experience.

Final comments would be that if someone wanted to stay at the Shagri-La for the sake of the name, then please do. However, if someone is looking for a romantic night out in Downtown Vancouver with their significant other, then in my opinion, there are better options.
