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 Very outdated bathroom with old tiles and strangely stained grout.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

We arrived in Vancouver to discover our room (penthouse) was much smaller than advertised. The website claims freshly renovated (my question would be when?) The living room is so small that two people fill it completely. The television didn’t work for the first night and wasn’t reported to the day staff. The toilet backed up and the staff were unable to locate a plunger. At least the person on the front desk suggested Safeway to get one at 10.30pm. The kitchen lights didn’t work without turning the ceiling fan on. No milk or tea bags, no customer service by the man on the desk on our arrival. He doesn’t know how to problem solve. The master room (laughing) no ceiling fan and due to the room being 70% glass it was very hot. Then a disappointing breakfast where nothing was explained and to an Australian you just don’t help yourself to the fridge or cupboards but this was expected here. The is a shower curtain in the bath made the shower a very closed in space and a funny grey mold on the tiles doesn’t say freshly renovated.
The vertical blinds did nothing to keep the light or the heat out of both the main room and the strange glassed in patio. All in all the hotels saving grace was the location and Sunday onwards staff. I would not say this is value for money. I hope our other hotels are not as disappointing this one during our stay in Canada.

My family booked an one bedroom unit here for 4 nights. Great location so close to Stanley park, restaurants and boat harbour. We were lucky to be on the Harbour side so had great views ( we go to see the view from the other side of the building when we had a plumbing issue and had to spend a night in another unit while the issue was resolved), The unit was too small for four adults but as we were only there 4 nigh were weren’t able to book a 2 bed unit which was very disappointing.
Staff were very helpful and able to come up with a suitable solution to a plumbing issue that arose in the unit.

Second stay @Lord Stanley Suites – after first time in May 2016, knew I’d come back!

Cozy apartment-hotel w/ small equipped kitchen & washer-dryer in apt, as well as free WiFi & cable TV – particularly good for longer/extended stays. Complimentary breakfast 7-9AM (“continental” + waffle maker.) Small gym & indoor parking, too; but did not use either, so cannot review. Some rooms may be more renovated than others, but comfortable & clean. Many have lovely, at least partial views of Stanley Park and/or Cole Harbour w/ snow-capped mountains beyond!
(Did not travel w/ disabled family member as in past hotel review, so cannot attest to accessibility beyond hotel lobby [assist to open manual glass front door if not already open, high check-in desk] & elevator [reasonable delay time open/close doors.] But standard room would be quite tight for manual wheelchair-user to manoeuvre; and no adaptations, of course. Breakfast room would require some assistance [reach some items, re-arrange table/seating at bit, assist to open manual glass entrance door if not already open], but staff present to assist.)

But #1 reason to stay here is the *excellent* location (and *the* reason chose this hotel in first place): Literally 1 block from magnificent Stanley Park’s Lost Lagoon & Cole Harbour across the street (W. Georgia Str), in bustling west end / Denman Str area. That means 1-15 min walk to Stanley Park & seawall, Vancouver Aquarium, all sorts of restaurants, bike rental shops, and essentials (groceries, pharmacies, banks.) <5 min walk to Robson Str, then 20 min walk along Robson to its famous shopping district downtown. And a nice 20-30 min stroll to downtown Canada Place along the waterfront, or over to English Bay beach along Denman Str.
Easily accessible by public transport w/ multiple buses from downtown (Vancouver City Ctr station, Canada Line of Skytrain) stopping w/in 2 blocks of hotel (stop: W. Georgia @Denman); and along Robson etc. See public transport website translink.ca for details – NB: “Compass” card can be reloaded online.

Last but not least: Friendly, helpful concierges & staff. Returning to the hotel one evening, concierge said “Welcome home!” – and it really felt like it. Will be back for sure!

Easy walk to Stanley park, shops and busses. Staff are excellent to deal with and are very friendly. Bedroom a little small but overall a small inconvenience. The suites are 1 block from Robson Street which has 19 blocks of shopping.

Stayed there for 3 days.. everything was well organised and comfortable. Nice place. The hotel staff is very friendly, Didn’t have any issue with the hotel. Will recommend to others. Nice place for short and long term visit.

The apartment 703 had everything we needed for a comfortable 6 day stay. The staff in all departments were exceptional, helpful and efficient. The location is good facing Stanley Park and an easy 15 minute walk into the centre. However the bedroom in this Premium apartment contained a rather small double bed and it was not possible to move around it as the room was not very wide. There was one bedside table and lamp but no room on the other side of the bed and no central light in the room with difficult to pull curtains. We solved this by using the sofa bed as well as the main bed. This is fine for two friends but not for a couple. Would suggest checking bedroom when booking to clarify, but would recommend with this reservation

We had a great stay at lord stanly, staff were very friendly (kids loved the High fives David!! ) great value, breakfast was great, location close to stanly park, restaurants, Safeway. Kids were comfortable on the fold out sofa. Only down side is not the best wifi signal, otherwise couldn’t recommend enough.

My husband’s work Christmas party was taking place at the Marina so we wanted to find a place close by to stay overnight. The location was perfect and within walking distance of where we were going.
You need to check in before you can go into the under ground parking. If you are using GSP you can’t miss the building. Check in was quick and easy. The parkade was a little confusing but we managed to find our way to the elevators to head up to our suite.
The suite itself was small, but we were aware of this from reading previous reviews, and we weren’t planning on spending much time there. The view in the morning was amazing, and we were on one of the higher floors so traffic noise was not too bothersome.
If we need to stay in the area in the future, we will definitely come back to the Lord Stanley suites.
Check out was quick and easy as well, so overall we enjoyed our stay and will be back.

My partner stayed here as he had just gotten out of the Lions Gate hospital from a mountain biking accident. As our travel insurance was supposed to organise our hotel and didn’t, we were left stranded in Vancouver with nowhere to stay for the next 2 weeks We had plenty of luggage and I was the only one capable of carting it around. After calling numerous booked out hotels I got through to Lord Stanley. What a saviour! They didn’t have a room available for the whole 2 weeks but after a long telephone conversation (Frustrating on their end I’m sure – sorry mate!) the receptionist was able to organise us 3 seperate rooms for the duration. We checked out of the first at 12pm and checked back in at 3pm and so on. During the checking out process they stored our luggage (including cold items in the fridge) and brought them up to the room again when it was clean. Each day when we arrived and left the hotel the receptionists would have a chat which was very comforting in the time which was very hard for us. The staff at this hotel are very accomodating. The service was impeccable! We stayed in Canada/ North America for 2.5 months and this was the most outstanding service by far. I can’t comment on the price as it was paid directly from our travel insurance company. We stayed in two rooms overlooking Alberti street and one overlooking the bay. Both were beautiful views! We had an excellent time. The elevators were fast, the breakfast was good but basic. We didn’t go down for breakfast much as its a first in first served until sold out situation and we weren’t getting up early.

The location was perfect! We couldn’t go far from the hotel due to my partners injuries but everything is in walking distance! Safeway, restaurants, the library, Stanley park etc are all extremely close. This is a great hotel in a beautiful street! 10/10. The only improvements I could see would be the size of the bedrooms and the appliances in the kitchen.

For the touristy rooms, I feel the study is a bit of a waste of space when the bedrooms are so small. This was a little hard when trying to get my partner into bed at night as one side was against the wall and the other side had very little room to move. I also feel that the utensils in the kitchen need to be improved.

Because we stayed for quite a long time we made plenty of meals. We had to keep buying the utensils/ pots/ pans etc from Safeway to cook the meals we wanted. Because we stayed so long the kitchen was very handy, and the main reason we called this place in the beginning over other hotels.

Otherwise everything about this apartment is great. All 3 rooms had a balcony and superb views. The location and friendly staff made this place amazing. If we ever get back to Vancouver we will stay here, no doubt about it.

Few other rooms offer the views of a corner suite at this hotel. Got spectacular views of both rising and setting full moons on first night. Closest hotel to Stanley Park. GREAT value!

The manager was very nice with us upon our arrival and the place is very clean and cannot complain about the breakfast !! A la prochain Lord Stanley !

David Andersen who handled our reservation was courteous, and very professional. Friendly but not invasive. He spent time to direct us to places we were looking for. Off to a great start. We checked out at noon time a few days later, and David was very helpful in letting us use the facilities late afternoon as our flight was later that night. Finishing off our stay with nothing but praise for the exceptional service. The suite was clean and very well equipped. Will definitely recommend this place.

The bed was like a cloud. The view of the Vancouver yacht club and, on a sunny day, the mountains, was an unexpected delight, Front desk staff were consistently helpful and excellent overall. front door security was also excellent, I felt safe staying alone. The location, a short walk to Stanley Park sea wall, was perfect for me, it was a short and easy bus ride to the art gallery and other downtown attractions, I would stay here again.

Breakfast was good. Room was great facing the Harbor. Beds comfy. Staff at breakfast were friendly and gave good service. Staff at reception was excellent always helpful and smiling. Hotel was convenient to get around town.

Excellent location, close to local transport links. Fantastic view. Continental Breakfast (& Waffle Maker) was a great touch. Friend & helpful concierge. Will definitely look to stay here again on future visits.

Staff Ali especially stood up on costumer excellency! Thank you! Location locations! Love the view of the water and the mountains! Walking distance to a tanley park. Walking distance to lots of restaurant. Bus stop is around the corner

Location was brilliant. Right next to Stanley park with an awesome view, plus really close to a restaurant area, the most amazing supermarket and the bus into the city centre. Breakfast was simple but good enough, with a few different choices and (while we were there at least) the magic of a waffle maker. Room was super cute. Small, but this didn’t trouble us – the bed was super comfortable, the kitchen was good, the bathroom also good, lounge room very comfortable and we had a little office space which turned out to be useful. Plus there was a washer/dyer which was really helpful after we got caught in the rain. And the view out our window was ace. Loved it.

totally exceeded my expectations. It’s a full on apt and the view was fantastic..perfect location, quiet street near great shopping and stanley park. Favorite Vancouver hotel I’ve stayed in. Rooms very quiet and comfortable

Love Lord Stanley Suites, well equipped apartment washer, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave, toaster everything you need. Safeway supermarket and lots of restaurants and takeaways a couple of hundred meters away. Close to Stanley Park and Coal harbour and you can have a very pleasant walk to Canada place and into town.
Breakfast included in the price waffles, cereal etc.
Hope to stay again next time we are in Vancouver.

We stayed here for four nights and loved it. The bed was the most comfortable I think I have ever slept in! The apartment was lovely, clean and tidy and it had everything we needed to cater for ourselves. The kitchen had plenty of crockery and utensils and we enjoyed a few home cooked meals whist we were there. Our balcony was lovely too and we enjoyed sitting out there watching the world go by. The complimentary breakfast was great – plenty of food to cater for all tastes and a good start to the day. All the staff we dealt with were very professional, helpful and friendly and we will definitely stay again should we find ourselves back in Vancouver!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Lord Stanley. The suite I stayed in was a one bedroom, with a full kitchen and a “solarium”. I was only there for the night, but it served my purpose of being close to Stanley Park and in the right price range.

The room was not exactly “spacious”, but it did include a separate bedroom and living area, 2 TVs, solarium, full kitchen, and in room washer/dryer.

The parking is a fully secure gated garage, with keycard access to the elevator lobby. The front door is manned at all times with keycard access as well.

Staff was very courteous and seemed ready to assist with whatever they could. Self-sufficient guests will appreciate the kitchen and convenient location. If you are looking for a “one stop” hotel, this isn’t it. It’s set up for a long term guest or someone who is used to taking care of their own needs. You won’t find snack machines, a hotel restaurant, or other amenities guests who like being catered to are used to. That said, I’m sure the staff would help you locate whatever you need nearby..
