Days Inn Vancouver Downtown

The main thing this hotel has going for it is its location – it’s a quick and pleasant walk to the convention centre. It is also, as far as I can tell, the cheapest option in this area. I like quirky older hotels, and this definitely falls into that category, but at times I felt the quirkiness was a little more than even I wanted.

Lots of other positives as well – very clean; friendly and helpful staff; a cafe in the basement run by very pleasant people for breakfast (although it doesn’t open until 7:00 am); good wifi. Moderately comfortable bed. Although this is definitely an older building the wallpaper, carpet, etc., are all in good shape and the overall tone is pleasant.

There are a couple of other breakfast options near the hotel – a 100% gluten-free place on Granville which opens at 6:00 am and has fabulous food, and an Italian place across the street which also has lots of great offerings.

The elevator was out of service for the duration of my stay (three days) which wasn’t a big deal for me but I expect would have been inconvenient for anyone with any type of mobility issue. Also, the hair dryer in my room didn’t work – both times that I turned it on it started to crackle loudly and then started emitting tendrils of smoke.

I wonder if the Days Inn management has decided there is enough new business from convention centre visitors that they don’t need to put a lot of effort in repeat business – so they don’t bother investing in infrastructure like a functioning elevator or hairdryers since they don’t really care if visitors ever come back. That kind of impression makes it hard to be totally enthusiastic about staying here.

So, although I enjoyed my stay and as I said the location is great, I’d be a little ambivalent about staying here again. I would definitely look around for other options before making another booking here.
