This time it was for a meeting, and I stayed in the North Tower. My previous visit was in the South Tower. The room was very nicely appointed and in the tower where all our meetings were held. the restaurant was on the lobby level. The buffets for our group were excellent, although the selected wines were not pleasing to my palate. The view from the 19th floor towards the bay and Grouse Mountain were stirking.at dawn. It was 25 minutes to the airport. It was a 15 minute walk to the waterfront. Our group’s room rates were very competitive.
Tried to get an upgrade from the 10th floor of the 26 floor tower but was told that the hotel only offered upgrades and services at Club Level only to Platinum members (I am a Gold member myself).
On the upside, there’s a Starbucks in the lobby.
(1) polite, friendly, knowledgeable staff – Each staff member we encountered was very polite, friendly smiles and helpful if needed (especially the woman (sorry forget her name) at the gym/pool check in area).
(2) clean room/clean hotel- he hotel itself was very clean. We did not see any areas that were in need of cleaning or repair. Our room on the 16th floor was adorable with a little balcony but most importantly it was very clean. We were in one of the odd shaped corner rooms but I do not understand the negativity about these rooms. We use our room to sleep, wash or relax and this room was perfect for that. Even though we were next to the ice machine we had zero issues with hall noise. Being across the street from a hospital you do hear the sirens from the emergency vehicles but it never prevented us from falling asleep or woke us at night.
(3) safety- although this hotel is located downtown there was not a moment when we did not feel safe. The elevators are key entry and there were staff and security looking people around the hotel. Even around the block, we saw a few homeless people but they kept to themselves ignoring us altogether.
(4) location – situated downtown it was walking distance to great shopping, restaurants, the Vancouver art gallery etc.
It was located in easy walking distance to Sky train stations and super easy getting from and to the airport (I recommend using Vancouver city centre station instead of Yaletown/Roundhouse station as the walk is easier, especially pulling a suitcase, and it’s a shorter walk)
Overall we had an excellent stay and would happily return.
At the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre. Stroll leisurely through the boutiques of Robson Street and Yaletown.
