This hotel is dated and needs a bit of tlc however it is in a good location. Unfortunately my friends and I waited a good half an hour to check in as the reception staff seemed to be having a bit of an issue with a large group of guests who spoke little English. There were several staff members behind... More

If you ever live in an apartment in the 70's, this is one of those. It is functional and located at one of the best locations in Vancouver. Plenty of restaurants around. A morning walk by the Bay was great! Beware of the underground carpark, another great adventure!

One very helpful person on the service desk who provided assistance commensurate with expectations of people working in the tourism industry but all others answered the bare questions only. Hotel is dated which makes cleaning difficult but not acceptable to find hair and tissues in drawers, mold around plug holes, broken light fittings etc. Hotel is excellently located with a... More

I was travelling western canada with my parents and we decided to stay here. We were pleasantly surprised. The area is awesome! The concierge is very nice and incredibly helpful with parking and everything and there is free coffee. The hotel is in a busy street but it gets very quiet at night and the rooms are super quiet!

We stayed for 3 nights at this friendly Chinese run hotel which was in a good position near the sea front and Stanley Park. There were good cooking facilities and the room we had was large. Good value. We liked the free coffee machine in the lobby. Would stay here again if we go back to Vancouver.

This is the first time I have ever given a terrible review to a hotel. This hotel was filthy, both the lobby and the room. The people manning the front desk were unfriendly at best. There were lots of restaurants in the area, but I do not feel that this was a very pedestrian friendly part of the city.

The room was CLEAN! First of all, I need to emphasize that. I found one single hair in the bathtub, and I'm sure it was from the cleaning lady - and since I have long hair and tend to leave them everywhere *I* go, I am not even going to complain about it. On a Saturday night, in Vancouver, and... More

The hotel is small, and dated - 3 star at best. However it is well run, with a laundry, free coffee machine in the lobby. The room we were in was spacious and had a little kitchenette. Everything is clean. It is in a great position in the middle of English Bay, with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Only... More

The only redeeming value for this hotel is its location where you can find over 100 eating places. The rooms were filled with second hand furniture that did not match. Mismatched paint on the walls. Paper towels were not provided; even a dish towel was not provided in the kitchen. The beds were old with sagging mattresses. Front desk staff... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
