Blue Horizon Hotel Vancouver

I have been in this hotel twice and spent 2 nights per each visit. The hotel front desk and housekeeping staff are amazing; they are helpful and friendly. Fabio, Andre, Paul and Osmel thank you. The rooms and beddings/linens are very clean. On of the cleanest hotels I’ve been.

I had a rather unpleasant experience at the restaurant this time round: the Friday 10th November afternoon restaurant manager without saying a word walked rudely and yanked cutlery from the hands of the server while I was placing my order. I picked up my food about 20 minutes later and when I got to my room, I realized that the food cover was stuck on the food plate so I went back down to ask them to help me remove it. This same manager overheard me telling the server about the stuck cover so turned to me and said ” you are very special, this has never happened before”. Hm, so because “I’m very special” they decided to press down the food cover so hard it got stuck, right? You would have thought that, he will take responsibility for what went wrong. But no, no apology nothing. The server took the tray and food, she came back a few minutes later and it was open. I later realized that they broke the plastic food cover so there were plastic bits in my food. The food cover had the broken parts all round the top.

The green beans in the food were rotten, I don’t know if there was old left over rotting beans sauce that was placed first in my plate and they they added a little bit of fresh one on top???

I had a long day working about 2 hours away from the hotel, so I must say that I was tired and should never have even ordered the food let alone tasted it, seeing how the manager behaved. Not only did they let me down but I think I let myself down not to have confronted him and also returned the food and collected my money together with my 15% tip. His saying that I was ‘very special” makes me wonder, what coded way was he trying to tell me that I was being treated differently?

The Burrard Hotel Vancouver

The hotel is older and could use a tiny bit of maintenance. However, it was super clean and comfortable. The courtyard was beautiful and I loved the little touches that they put around the place like the cute little signage. The staff was friendly and there was complimentary bottled water and coffee in the room. The location was good too. We were easily able to walk to the main shopping streets. The only downside was the $35 a night for parking!

We go into Vancouver quite regularly and have stayed in many different hotels and decided to try the Burrard for the first time via a Be Vancouver promotion. We stayed two nights and loved the place! The front desk staff are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms, although not as spacious as other hotels we’ve stayed in have everything you need for a comfortable stay and are absolutely spotless. It has a very “retro” feel to it and I really enjoyed the courtyard with the trees lit up, the open fire pit and the music. I felt like I was in a tropical resort when we walked into the courtyard despite the chilly Vancouver weather. The wi-fi is free along with complimentary bikes and they even offer a pass to the nearby Steve Nash although I didn’t make use of that. There is a coffee shop and restaurant on either side. Had a nice chat with the maid as well who was also very personable. Will definitely stay here again.

Coast Coal Harbour Hotel Vancouver

The Coast Coal Harbour is a very modern and comfortable hotel right in the heart downtown. You are just a few minutes walk from Robson St, the water front and Canada Place, Canada Line /SkyTrain and lits of shopping and great restaurants. The rooms are adequate size, clean, comfortable and modern. You will not go wrong with thus hotel.

I was here on business and the hotel is quiet, very good location if tending to business in the downtown area. If possible I would recommend a room with a balcony – wasnt put to use this trip due to weather however, I really like the option – very spacious balcony where you can relax in the “fresh” air…. such as it is in a city…. highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is filled with friendly and accommodating staff. I stayed for two nights and the front desk agent remembered my name and room number each time I went to the desk. The views from the upper floors were spectacular, the rooms were clean and inviting, the valets were prompt. I would definitely come back again. The only slight dislike I had was there was a valet-only option. Though the valet attendants were prompt, I wish I had the freedom to go to and from my vehicle at my leisure. Other than that, this hotel is everything I wanted.

This hotel is within a reasonable walking distance to the convention center. Love the route I chose to use had a bank along the way and a few (cheaper) eateries around various corners. Urban Fare is my stop! Had a nice view of the inlet and those beds … extremely cozy. Very enjoyable.

The Burrard Hotel Vancouver

Great location. Small & intimate. Bedding & towels were top notch. Nice & in new condition. Bed was double sheeted which we really like. Wi-Fi worked great. Good TV lots of channels. New TV. Bathroom was spotless. Expensive fixtures nice and shiny. Quiet. Helpful staff at front desk. We were only there for 1 night and arrived about 8:30 so no time to use amenities. Appointment in the am and checkout right after that so again no time to use amenities. Next time we will use the free bicycles and tour around. Only downside is the $35 parking fee. But hotel price is reasonable so for one who does not have a car to park it is great. Add on the parking fee and it is still more reasonable than other hotels in the area.

We were very pleased with our 1 night stay at the Blue Horizon Hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable with a lovely view in 2 directions and there was even a small balcony. The walk from the Skytrain station was a bit long, but manageable with our suitcases so there was no need for an expensive taxi from the airport. The location was very good and we were able to stroll all through the downtown area as well as the waterfront. The staff were very friendly and courteous. Overall a very good choice in Vancouver.

Ramada Downtown Vancouver Granville

This hotel is barely downtown it’s not walking distance to anything. It’s on Granville which I have now learned is a very dirty and unsafe street full of drifters, drug addicts, prostitutes and bars. There is a bar right beside the hotel that keeps their music cranked until 330 in the morning so don’t count on getting any sleep. When I stayed here the fire alarm was also broken and went off 3 times through the night. They charge $18 extra for valet parking as their parking lot is a complete joke and only fits about 20 cars. There are lots less than a block away that charge half or less the amount they do for parking. When we arrived the front of the hotel smelled like urine as someone had urinated on the street directly outside the front door. This is not a part of town to bring your kids. The free breakfast is at the bar beside the hotel, a run down hole with terrible staff. You can have eggs or pancakes. Toast with no butter and serve yourself warm tap water to drink. DO NOT touch the fruit or juice!

Just your regular downtown hotel. Nothing fancy but clean and friendly service. Close to the city center, no car or transportation needed. Valet parking $18,45 a day which is normal for Vancouver. Rooms okay air conditioning etc. Breakfast not included but possible at $10.

The hotel is shabby and not in the best part of downtown. The club next door is loud and has a crazy vibe. There are quite a few homeless people around. Gas town and the waterfront aren’t really in walking distance.

Great location, fabulous staff. Beautiful bistro for a quick glass before our event. We will be back!
Room clean and everything we needed. Purchased for price and surprised at the quality, would love to revisit !

We really enjoyed the use of the bikes. We toured the sea wall and all over downtown to go shopping. The pool and hot tub were nice and clean. Need a bigger hot tub tho The room was clean and the room service was awesome. Thanks for the great time.

Fraying a little around the edges perhaps (very slow lifts, room decor and bathrooms could do with a refresh) but excellent location between downtown and Stanley park. We had a family suite which provided two spacious adjoining rooms. Room 40 on each floor provide partial harbour rooms with no supplement. Friendly staff; very good wifi and good breakfast. There are more expensive and luxurious options available nearby but we thought this was good value and we all liked. The hotel

Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Hotel

made our reservation last November for the SeaWheeze 1/2 Marathon The reservation is for 3 adults. We show up at 4:30 for check in and they give us a room with one king size bed, saying it is the only room available. BS could go online and book a room with 2 double beds, Just got a call, suddenly “a family checked out early” and they had a room.
Again I call BS they were holding rooms for parties of 4 and after 6 pm released some.

The Reception desk was extremely helpful when we arrived early! The room was very comfortable and the Concierge service was exceptional. The Location is perfect – very central – within walking distance to “Canada Place” – great place to stay!

The Marriott Pinnacle Downtown as great service. Front desk personnel very friendly and helpful. It’s buzzing with people and a lot of action in the lobby and around the hotel. It’s close to Canada Place. Easy walk to shopping. Rooms are comfortable. The bell hops are especially helpful.

Lord Stanley Suites On The Park

My family rented an apartment in this building for two nights. The moment we opened the door, we realized that the pictures were taken at angles that made the room look much bigger than it was. We had a one bedroom place on the 5th floor and it was so small. For a couple without kids, it would have been fine for space. We ended up putting one of our kids in the main bedroom, the other one in the weird little office room that you could barely turn around in, and then we slept on the hide-a-bed.

Because we faced a busy street, we could hear traffic noise all night, especially on the weekend. It kept us up a bit.

Overall, the amenities were fine. The kitchen had everything we needed. The laundry was good. The view was nice. But as a family, we were on top of each other the entire time. There is a small glassed in little patio that seemed like a complete waste of space but my kids enjoyed using it as a dining room and play area.

The hotel staff were great and very friendly. And you can’t beat the location. It’s right across the street from Stanley Park, which is exactly where we wanted to be and was very convenient for us. It’s also right off Denman, which has lots of restaurants, coffee shops, etc.

The biggest complaint I have isn’t the space or traffic noise. It was the condition of the room. And from reading other reviews, it seems to be a common theme – they are really run down. Major dents and scratches on the walls. Old carpet. Stained furniture. Vertical blinds that didn’t cover the windows very well and let in a ton of light. A portable air conditioner just in one room. Very outdated bathroom with old tiles and strangely stained grout.

It was disappointing, especially for the price we paid. But then again, we were clearly paying for location.

Would we stay here again, even if it was just two of us? Probably not unless we got an incredible deal. Next time, I think we will try one of the other locations around there and see what they have to offer. Maybe all locations around the park are like this but can charge a premium. But I think we will take that chance and see.

We we looking for an executive apartment hotel for a week near Stanley Park. While searching, this place came up…must say that I was dubious at first, for we had never heard of it. The reviews on TA were good, and the hotel met all of our criteria. Well let me tel you that the hotel surpassed our expectations. Firstly, the hotel staff is courteous and extremely helpful. Secondly, the hotel is spotless and rooms, whilst a little tired, are clean, comfortable and well appointed and quiet. Thirdly, the hotel is central to everything, and if need be, the bus routes are a 3 min walk from the hotel. The rooms are cleaned daily, toiletries replenished, towels exchanged and laundry soap replenished everyday – yes there is an en-suite washer and dryer. The is free wifi and parking. There is also a gym and a pool (though we didn’t use them). ***insider tip: if you book directly through the hotel website, your breakfast is included for all room guests***. Lucky that we booked that way. We were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. Highly recommended for families, couples and business travellers. We will return. Great value for money
