Landis Hotel Vancouver

 Deluxe King Suite: the master bedroom and bath were fine BUT the twin room was so tiny you had to climb a bed to get to the closet. There was barely any walking space. The window was jammed and the room was terribly stuffy. The light switches did not work and we even had to plug in some of the lamp ourselves and turn them on at the bases.The idea of two bathrooms was great, but the one off the dining area set off a blaring smoke alarm from steam, even when the door was closed. We had to constantly ask for towels since they did not provide wash cloths unless we asked. Parking was tight for the mini-van. Got stuck in hotel when keys got deactivated by mistake- you need them to use elevator or get to parking. Shuttle drops off only. Loud street noise due to paper thin windows which to not open. Location for walking was good, Breakfast and breakfast room staff was the best feature but they are discontinuing it. Pool area is shared with Marriott and is very humid, hot and the pool is high in chlorine. We had to ask them to clean better – the paper towel I used to wipe up water from a spill was black when I was done. The common living area was OK with very limited TV options. Overall disappointing.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay here. The rooms are very big – two bedrooms, lounge area, kitchenette and enclosed balcony with table and chairs. The beds are very comfortable, plenty of pillows, towels etc. We were on the 15th floor and even though there was some street noise there was very little noise from other guests. I would guess that rooms on the lower floors could suffer quite a bit with street noise though. The free breakfast (which is being discontinued in 2018) was limited but pastries were of a good standard. I would suggest popping down and getting the breakfast to eat in your room as the seating area is small and cramped. The decor is quite dated and tired but generally clean and tidy. For the price paid and the size of the room I would say this is a great base for a family holiday.
Stayed here for one night as we were transiting through Vancouver on our way to Victoria. Wanted a place that was convenient and could easily accommodate 5 people. The Landis hit the spot. We had a two bedroom room. The larger room had a king size bed with en suite. The second bedroom had a queen bed. There was another bathroom/toilet, a well stocked galley kitchen with large fridge, dining table for four, 2 seater sofa plus a single couch, and a small enclosed balcony/sunroom. Plenty of space for the 5 of us. We used the sofa bed and that was comfortable and not springy or noisy. Each room had its own tv. The room was clean and we had no issues with housekeeping. The hotel is in an excellent spot and many attractions can be reached by walking. We walked to Granville island from the hotel and it took us around 15 mins over the bridge to the island. The hotel did offer breakfast although we did take it up. There was a notice saying that they will discontinue this service though. The pool and gym area was fantastic. The pool was a great size and good for a doing a few laps in the morning. The hotel is next to the Marriot suites and it looks like they share the pool and gym area. There was parking available down below and were charged around $20 for the night. When you first walk into the lobby you get a sinking feeling as it is dated and the man behind the small counter is not the very sociable. However, the suite was great and did not disappoint. We were on the 3rd floor and it did get a little loud if we had the windows open from the Friday night street traffic, so perhaps getting a higher floor might help. The hotel was great and allowed us late check out at 12pm and even gave us a card so that we could leave the car there for longer and we got the car around 3pm.
