My wife and I flew to Vancouver to board a cruise ship the next day and stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver. My wife had done some consulting with the hotel prior to its opening for the Winter Olympics several years before. This was the first chance either of us had to actually stay in the hotel. The check-in... More

This is definitely my new favourite place to stay in Vancouver!! We arrived for our 2 nights stay by car via the lower driveway. As soon as we pulled into the driveway it felt as though we were escaping the hustle and bustle of the city, and arriving into a peaceful oasis. We had a warm welcome from the bellman... More

High end as expected in everything - furnishings, food, accommodation, staff, and of course pricing! Concierge staff are outstanding - helpful, right on with restaurant recommendations (and they were not touristy joints), gracious, GM and rest of executive staff behaved poorly when controlling the hotel guest crowd when a VVIP (well-known global leader) was staying at the hotel.

Booked a superior room, just the right size. Prefer the deluxe room if you are being kids. Overall good stay, very good location, next to urban fare. Very convenience. Highly recommended. Staff is very polite and room is clean. You may also find lots of parking around if u don't want to pay for valet.

We had a wonderful stay there in one of their deluxe rooms. The location is just the best in downtown Vancouver. You are close to all shopping and luxury eateries and the service is just out of this world.

Having been to a number of different Shangri-la hotels in asia, I was not expecting such a small boutique style business hotel. Everything is 5 star quality and service was super.

Stayed for 3 nights and was given an upgrade to a king balcony when we checked in. The Mercedes BenZ house car is amazing and made trips to and from restaurants a breeze. Afternoon tea in the lounge was a nice break after walking around all day. Will definately return again.

Staying in Downtown

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.

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.
