I've been going to the Carmana Plaza for almost 10 years and it's always excellent. The kitchen and dining area are brilliant, especially for longer stays. There is an Urban Fare grocery store across the street. Central and close by the Burrard Skytrain (metro) station and a 10-minute walk from Vancouver Centre station on the Canada Line to the airport....

The Carmana Place was recommended to me by a friend and the building and staff are great. All of the in room amenities are great, nice linens and towels and great housekeeping staff. One small problem or it could be a big problem if you enjoy watching sporting events. Channel 51 on the TV set is supposed to be TSN,...

One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Great location in the heart of Vancouver. Great space, clean, and well maintained. We were pleasantly surprised with the large space that included a large living room and a full kitchen. Definitely the best value for its price.

I had an amazing experience at the Carmana Plaza. Staff are very co-operative. It is centrally located. Surrounded by good stores to shop. The only problem is if you stay on the top floors, the fire alarm rings, you have to run down a lot of stairs. It takes forever to get back to your room. The kitchen in the...

This used to be a nice location for a long or short term business stay. It is now dated and some issue with the sprinklers has everyone sitting outside at 10:00pm with no idea of what is going on. Surrounded by strangers and unaware of when we will be able to return. Earlier a woman was going door to door...

Thank you for your patience with our response, Shari. We appreciate your feedback and would like to reassure you and future guests that we are reviewing our protocols further. We understand how upsetting it was and regret that we were short staffed that evening and were unable to fully assist. We would normally have a team member helping the guests...

We stayed here for 4 nights. Room had a separate bedroom, lounge, kitchen and dining so there is heaps of space. There is an Urban Fare supermarket across the street that is open until 10 with a great range of groceries and deli items. The hotel is on Alberni Street which runs parallel to Robson so easy to get around...

This was my 2nd time staying here, I arrived early in the morning after a 15 hour flight and was extremely grateful they let me check in as soon as my room was ready (about an hour after check-in). The room itself was great! Spacious and clean! I was staying alone so there were lots of pots and dishes etc....

Space and more than we expected after two weeks in a cosy RV. Close to everything, grocery store, restaurants and close by access to the train station to the Airport. The apartment was very clean and tidy with a full kitchen , separate lounge and a comfortable bed. The staff were obliging and pleasant.

Carmana Plaza is located very centrally to both financial district, shopping and restaurants. It is an apartment hotel, where the suites are equipped with kitchen and dining facility. My suite was located at the 31st floor, with a peak to the harbor. What I especially enjoyed was that the room was quiet, and kept to a high cleaning standard. What...

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.
