Granville Island Hotel

We had a group of about 45 arriving at different times .The front desk staff was friendly and professional in checking everyone in. Granville island has a parking issue so if you are lucky and fine a space, grab it, otherwise they have valet parking. Make sure to read all the signs so you park in the right areas.
Our room was well appointed if a bit cramped. It had all the extras that make a stay special. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was excellent! our room was very clean and well-cared for.
The public areas of the hotel are very nice and have orchids throughout–a nice touch. The views from the windows and the restaurant are to die for. It shows Vancouver at it’s best. I would highly recommend this hotel as the shops and the market and restaurants on Granville Island are very good! I recommend using the little water taxi/buses to get to other parts of the city–very efficient and not expensive.

My wife and I spent the weekend in Vancouver attending my son’s graduation. We stayed at Granville Island Hotel due to the location and as a repeat visit for my wife who had stayed previously. The location is excellent and the view of the water is great. The bed was super comfortable and the room was lovely. We did have a couple of nits though mainly related to the service. The bar is in a great location but due to drafts, doors left open, lack of heat, etc. it’s freezing and we found ourselves sitting in our coats in an attempt to keep warm. The service was very slow and the pricing steep. We ordered breakfast which arrived on time but without any condiments (salt & pepper), butter/jam for the toasts, etc. Although we rang down it took them a couple of attempts to bring up the basics (salt/pepper the first trip and then toast condiments the second) by which time the food was cold and offered no apology. We will cut them a break and will likely give them a second chance but for the price I would have expected the service to be better than we encountered.
Everything about the Granville Island Hotel either met or exceeded my expectations. Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, great view (harbor side) and wonderful room service from the Dockside Restaurant!
