Staff in all areas from the underground reception, main floor lobby, housekeeping and 3rd floor restaurant and business centre was all above and beyond. Previous the highest level of service we enjoyed was the Club Floor at the Ritz Carlton in Naples Florida. This was well above that experience. Our corner room was not just a box and provided interesting...

One of my favorite hotels. High end amenities.....heated bathroom tile, automatic curtains, one way shower window. Beautiful view of Vancouver from our window. Although we brought our 3 year old, it is not a family type of hotel.

The Shangri-La Vancouver adds to the overall Southeast Asian feel of this city with a high level of service, well-apportioned but small sleeping room, and stylish public areas. Good location off Alberni Street for a number of excellent restaurants and other downtown features.

Aside from the perfect location (right in the main shopping area and yet close enough to Stanley Park) the main selling point for me is their staff! Stephane from the Concierge desk is a true marvel and 'saved' me on more than one occasion. Service was flawless and rooms are everything you'd expect from a 5*hotel and the bar/lounge area...

It's hard to believe this place isn't sold out every night. But in fact, it often seems half empty. I'm somewhat reluctant to recommend it for fear its reputation will catch on. But I also confess to worry that it'll close for lack of guests. The rooms aren't as large as sister S-L hotels in Asian cities but they're plenty...

I had an exceptionally relaxing stay at the Shangri-La after taking in a show at the Queen E.

Loved our stay at Shangri-La in Vancouver. Agent recognized I was under the weather at check in and sent up hot tea. We loved the smoothie bar at the pool and spa area, and the bell team loaded our luggage into the car while we went to lunch prior to departure. Wonderful service and a great location to explore Vancouver.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.

Sunlight filters in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, warming the latte tones and golden hues around you. Basking in complete ease, you contemplate your day ahead from the cosy comfort of your room at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. Vancouver’s glittering city skyline against mountainous backdrops. As you tuck into a sumptuous breakfast, a sweeping view of the vibrant metropolis that is Vancouver unfolds before you. Settling into your tastefully furnished surroundings, you catch a glimpse of the majestic firs of Stanley Park in the distance. A leisurely stroll along the sapphire blue waters of its lakes would be heavenly. You decide on a short drive to Grouse Mountain. You’re in the right season for helicopter rides, and skiing and snowboarding off its slopes. The rush of height and speed proves refreshingly exhilarating. Nestled between the Coast Mountain Range and Pacific Ocean, there is certainly plenty to do in this urban oasis. You plan to take it a day at a time. For now, Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, beckons. You head straight for CHI, The Spa. A soothing organic British Columbia seaweed treatment indulges your well-worked body. Relaxation revives your appetite, and you find yourself at MARKET by Jean-Georges. Elegant contemporary interiors open your mind to the reinvented seasonal flavours conjured by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. You’re in for the best by this internationally-acclaimed Michelin three-star chef and entrepreneur. You’ve had a taste of the finest at this city. And it all began at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. ... more   less
