Hotel Vancouver met and exceeded our expectations - it is a lovely piece of history, very beautiful and alive with friendly and helpful staff. The children loved the milk and cookies and we loved the comfortable space and convenient location in the heart of Vancouver.

This hotel is gorgeous, every single person was personable, lovely and accomodating. A homeless man had asked for money as we were walking in and, whatever your opinion of obliging, I always do, pay it forward right?

I stayed at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and found the hotel to be old outdated and poorly maintained. The room rates are far too excessive for what you receive. I am afraid the Fairmont is living on reputation and needs an injection of cash to bring it up to date with the charges it levies.

Another stay at one of my favourite hotels in Vancouver. Great service, the best beds in any hotel I have stayed in. Very central downtown location. One of the old CP hotels that has been extensively modernized but keeping the old style of decor. Stayed in the royal suite last year. If you have the money a fabulous stay.

It was very expensive and the facility, room quality and service did not live up to what you would expect for the price. The staff was overwhelmed. No bellmen to meet us, long lines for the concierge, needed to hail our own cabs, housekeeping shorted us towels.

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.
