St Regis Hotel Vancouver

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel after reading many good reviews on Tripadvisor. I have to agree that this hotel is indeed lovely with many friendly and helpful staff. Let me start with the positives:

1) Location – very well located within downtown Vancouver. This hotel is within walking to many places in the city including Canada Place and Chinatown. Granville station is just next to it and further down, you have Vancouver City Center.

2) Friendly staff – the staff goes all out to help you with your stay in the hotel. They are also more than happy to guide you to places to go to and places to eat within the city. Special mention goes to Gary and the other lady (my apologies for not getting her name) who have been exceptional.

3) Breakfast – Cook to order breakfast is available every morning. Although it is not a buffet, the size of the breakfast is more than enough to last me till lunch at least. Choices are a little limited with only 3 options of Continental, Classic and Omelette.

4) Comfortable room with L’occitane amenities. The toilet floor is even heated!

Now for the negatives:

1) Room size – being a boutique hotel, the room is a little small (for North America). There is no fridge in the room.

2) A chance encounter with an unfriendly staff – on the day I checked out, this one staff (whom I guess is an exception rather than the norm) by the name of Keith seems rather cold, unfriendly bordering on being rude when I tried to confirm with him my bill. He seemed rather impatient in answering my questions (a stark contrast to Gary!)

3) Small and slow lift – for same reason as number 1

I will definitely consider staying in this hotel again in the future!

We’ve had the most amazing stay at this beautifully renovated hotel. We were more than well looked after, the staff go way beyond what is expected of them and always with a smile. The breakfast is huge and delicious. The bar is friendly and welcoming and has long happy hour sessions even the wonderful food is included in happy hour. Our room was delightful with a huge bathroom and a wonderfully comfortable bed. The hotel is in easy reach of everything. Would definitely recommend and would come back to stay in a heartbeat. Thanks
I booked this hotel with the assumption that it is a Starwood hotel. Well, it is not. The hotel is housed in a heritage building. It is centrally located on a busy street. We just needed to hurriedly unload our luggage by the side walk. We were directed to park our car in the basement of the building next door. Reception desk staff were friendly. The lobby area and elevator are tiny. Our room is of good size with a refurbished bath room with L’Occitane toiletries supply. Our room was a bit smelly despite turning up the air conditioner and fan. Since the hotel is a low rise structure, we could hear noise from outside. All in all, the hotel is in prime location, maintains decent standard in serving hotel guests but with constraints.

Boutique hotel is Vancouver’s own city centre, New York-style, heritage hotel that offers classic, yet contemporary accommodations. The hotel is within walking distance of Rogers Arena, fine shopping, numerous restaurants including it’s own and the convention centre.
