Sunset Inn and Suites Vancouver

This is our favorite place to stay while we are in Vancouver , we come regularly for medical reasons. It has everything we need and great staff and service as well. The rooms are comfortable and we love having a balcony.

Brian, Elvis and Arabella are amazing staff at the Sunset Inn. The hotel is clean. The room we rented, a 1 bedroom suite was perfect for 3 women coming to town for a night out. The parking was great nice and secure. The room has a safe should you need it. Breakfast was fun and our overall experience was excellent.

We had a lovely three-night stay at Sunset Inn and Suites. The room – one bedroom executive suite with full kitchen – was awesome for the two of us. It was at the end of our trip to B.C. so we were happy to be able to cook “in” for a couple of the nights. The breakfast was very good and well set up. We didn’t have a car and the location was great for walking around downtown, the West End, and Yaletown (also to Granville Island – a good hike over the bridge, Aquabus back). Loved being able to borrow DVDs for free! We’ll be back.

Desk staff very helpful when trying to plan activities within the city and further afield. Clean rooms, excellent location in downtown Vancouver. Nice selection of continental breakfast items which were eaten in rooms,

A bedroom with a king size bed……well equipped kitchen….dining area….and comfortable lounge…..plus bathroom, balcony and more storage than you’ll ever need…..Where? The self catering Sunset Inn Suites on Burnaby Street…a delightful, quiet tree lined avenue. Add to this a mountain of breakfast, including waffles to fill you to overflowing ready for a day of exploring the delights of Vancouver.
Free wi-fi……daily cleaning service…..breakfast included.
Sound good?
Any downsides?

Well…….its a block of self catering apartments so you’ll be fending for yourself. All the ingredients you’ll need are placed in the breakfast area near reception….you take what you need, make your waffles, place everything on a tray and take it back in the lift to your apartment. You’ll obviously have to do your own washing up, but thats no hardship and then the day is yours!
The apartments are spacious, stocked with everything you need and the block is generally very quiet. Try for a unit on the frontnof the building for a (restricted) view of the water which is a big part of Vancouver. Units at the rear overlook a back street cut through….popular with staff who work at the nearby hospital….but also with an undesirable element…more about which later……
Reception staff are top notch….the household staff work hard to keep everywhere clean. The reception area looks a bit dated….at one end of which there’s a small fitness room. Complimentary papers are available and there’s coffee on tap in reception. If you have a rental car or drive your own into Vancouver, you’ll find free and secure parking.
So, back to the breakfast arrangements………
As I said, you take the lift to the ground floor with a tray, once there you’ll step out of the lift into a narrow corridor leading via a 90 degree turn into reception. Everything you need for breakfast is stacked on units in this narrow corridor (cereals, fruit, teas, coffee, juice, bread, bagels, mix for waffles) You’re probably ahead of me here, but there’s simply not enough room….add to this 2 extremely hot waffle makers on a bench in reception…..its a health and safety nightmare and I don’t know how they get away with it.
Remember the small fitness room I mentioned?
I didn’t see anyone use it in 8 days. I would scrap the gym and move the breakfast out of the narrow corridor and into that space, but then I’m not running the Sunset Inn Suites.
Vancouver gets a lot of rain……if you’ve done your research you’ll pack accordingly. If not, the reception staff will loan an umbrella for the duration of your stay.
Is the Sunset Inn Suites well located?
The main part of Vancouver can be navigated with ease on foot in less than 30 mins east to west, north to south. Walking not your thing? Taxis are plentiful and fares reasonable. Buses run on most routes every few minutes and again fares reasonable. Vancouver feels very visitor friendly and generally safe

The Continental breakfast included make your own waffles which were delicious.
Coffee machines and kitchenette in rooms. Quality toiletries provided. Service was excellent. Nothing a trouble for night staff.

The staff was very accommodating. Had a lovely one bedroom suite on the 7th floor. Good views from both rooms. The location maybe it a very easy walk to almost anywhere in the West End. Close to shopping on Davie St. with lots of nice restaurants to walk to. Free DVD movies at the desk for all ages. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again in the future.

Have stayed here numerous times. Location is great, easy walk to Stanley Park and many restaurants.

I really appreciate the fact that wi fi, parking, and breakfast are all included. Twenty five minutes to airport under normal conditions.

Was forced to find a hotel outside of the downtown core due to availability issues (since I can’t afford the high end places!!!), and this is where I landed.

The price is very good for the size of room you get, but there are trade-offs.

The fitness facility is very limited – 3 cardio machines, and dumbbells up to 25 lbs, all in a room smaller than the bathroom attached to my room. The continental breakfast is very limited and poor in choice – stale(ish) bagels/croissants, limited fruit, coffee/juice, and a make you own waffle machine.

The elevators are small and slow, and the rooms are in need of updating – my living room has multiple stains on the carpet and other signs of neglect.

All that said, realistically given their location in the West End, surrounded by hostels, this is as good as you can expect in this area, but falls below my expectations and standards.

I had an appointment at St Paul’s hospital and was looking for something close by. The Sunset Inn is prefect — only 2 blocks from the hospital and on a quieter street. They offer a medical discount on their room bookings — saved us quite a bit.

Rooms — large suite with a separate kitchen, bedroom with kingsize bed, bathroom on the small size but fine, dining area for 4, 2 TVs. Balcony is nice as well.

A very good perk is free gated and secure parking — something rarely found in downtown Vancouver. In the morning there’s free cereal, toast, waffles, juice, etc.

Walking distance to many restaurants – we tried Moxies, Lolita Mexican Restaurant — both under 5 minutes. And you can walk to English Bay — perhaps 20 minutes at the most – The Boathouse is a good restaurant overlooking the Bay.

To go to Granville Island – you only have to walk 10 minutes or so to catch the water taxi. To walk to Canada Place is perhaps 20 to 25 minutes.
Found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
Highly recommend.

A very short walk to the beach and the little ferry that takes you to Granville Island and around English bay. Nice quiet area. The complimentary morning waffles were a hit with both of us. We would stay here again.

Front desk were great even though we showed up without reservations. When I mentioned I was here for a procedure at St. Paul Hospital I was given a discount. Unexpected but am very grate full. The cleaners were very courteous even though hallways and elevators were sometimes full.

Slightly off the beaten path, but well within walking distance (20 minutes – we all need those steps!) of the major areas (downtown, Granville Street, Yaletown, slightly closer to English Bay).
The room was very nice. Booked a suite (504), Balcony, small kitchen, dining room/lounge. An older building, but well maintained. Pleasant and efficient staff. Quiet neighbourhood with small restaurants, coffee shops and stores abounding if you don’t want to venture far afield.
Definitely recommended.

We stayed at Sunset Inn and Suites for a pre-cruise visit to Vancouver. We had a one bedroom apartment that gave us plenty of room to be comfortable. The kitchen was small but we did not use for meals. It had all the appliances you would need for short term stay. The living area has sliding doors to a small balcony which was nice for some fresh air but it overlooked the back of several restaurants so the view wasn’t great. The living area does not have air conditioner but the bedroom did. The sofa was comfortable but very dated. The bedroom had a king size bed which was very comfortable. there are flat screen TV’s in both rooms and many DVD’s are available at the lobby. Bathroom was single sink, small but well maintained. They provide a continental breakfast including waffles but the lobby is very small so you are are encouraged to bring the dishes from your room then return to your room to eat. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. It is near downtown on a lovely residential street and within walking distance to many places to eat. Taxi from the airport to the Inn was $35 CAD. From the Inn to the cruise terminal was $10 CAD. Neighborhood is very culturally diverse so there are many different kinds of restaurants to chose from. We went to the “Elbow Room” that the staff told us about which is very quaint, outrageous and fun (not appropriate for young children). It is very small, you have to get there early to get a seat. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again if we had the opportunity.

Lovely staff, apartments, and neighborhood. Easy access by walking or biking to all of west end. Only a few blocks walk to seawall and False Creek Ferry landing. Longer but doable walk to Stanley Park. Bike rental shops everywhere. Great restaurants within a block or two. You won’t regret your stay here!

Marvellous location, incredible staff, fully stacked rooms… what more can you ask for? If you want leisure then Davie St is on your doorstep. If you have meetings in Downtown a bus will have you there in minutes. If you want Rogers Arena it’s ~$10 in a taxi or just down the road on a bus. My partner and I were sad to leave as we had such a good time. My hot tip is to buy super-fresh fish from the fish market around the corner (we got steelhead salmon) and cook it in your room – just superb.

Second Review Sunset Inn and Suites Vancouver
Had a great stay here.. Very good staff, service and reasonable value… No complaints at all. Free jelly beans were a bonus as I missed the free breakfast.!! Location was ok. Reception staff very helpful.
