We perform checks on reviews.
Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were well greeted upon our arrival. The Building was very clean as well as the unit we stayed in. Very functional 1 bedroom unit with a master light switch. As you walk out, all lights turn off and then with one touch, all the lights are on when you come back in.

We originally booked this accommodation based on location and overall facilities (suite with kitchenette). The bed was comfortable, the suite size was good, the shower terrific. Air conditioner worked well, but was a little noisy cutting in/out a lot. Sheraton reception and baggage staff were welcoming and helpful. Check in time 4pm and checkout time 10am could be improved to current standard of 11am checkout/3pm checkin, but Embarc is separate to the Sheraton, albeit in the same building and Sheraton staff handling the checkin/checkout process. We would have preferred inclusion of a washer/dryer/stovetop to make the stay perfect.

Location, room amenities and check in was very good. Agent at check in on August 14 was helpful and polite.

Although room is reserved under Embarc check in was at Sheraton, apparently they share check in/out services. It’s get more confusing after that. When leaving hotel on August 16 at 7am I ask front desk agent that I need fresh towels, he response was no problem I will inform housekeeping.

Came back at 6pm no towels was replaced or left outside door. Went down to speak with front desk agent, he told me to go to 29th floor to speak with Embarc staff there. I said why this was not informed to my by morning agent if this is your policy? His response “ I don’t know” I asked him to call them to bring towels to room, he said he doesn’t work for Embarc, Thank you. ( meaning Shut up and do yourself) very rude and ill mannered agent. Went to 29th floor and Embrace staff informed me that she never received any request of fresh towels from front desk. She did apologize and provided towels soon after.
No housekeeping services was provided for duration of stay(3 nights) they are blaming COVID for this change which is really a joke and more about saving labour cost.
Bar and restaurants are open and they are serving guests one on one basis with many guests without mask but providing housekeeping when guests are outside for most of the day is an issue to them.
Parking is $28 plus tax this was not made clear by Expedia when made reservation.
I could have given four stars if it’s not for bad experience with evening front desk agent on August 16

The Embarc property in the Sheraton Wall Center is top notch from the convenient location downtown to the quality of the individual rooms. We stayed in a corner (notch room) and the views were fabulous! There is a nice lounge on the 29th floor. The workout facility and pool is great. Restaurants and bars are numerous and close, Skytrain "City Centre" station is a 10 minute walk and the Waterfront is 15-20 minutes. Its ALL there! We love this property

The Wall Center Embarc is a beautiful location that's centrally located downtown with everything you need. I traveled with my family in April 2024 and we stayed in two separate single-bed studio-style rooms. Both rooms were lovely and clean and had the most amazing view of the city and surrounding sea and mountains.

Staff was friendly and helpful and made our stay a breeze and a real pleasure.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay downtown. My only confusion was getting an additional bill after our stay with some extra expenses that seem tax related. This could be normal when staying in Vancouver - this was our first trip so I can't say for sure, and the charge wasn't a great amount, but this may not have been well communicated ahead of time.

This is a great place to stay when visiting Vancouver. It's relatively light on the number of points needed and the location is very central. I've stayed there several times over the years and haven't had any negative experiences. As a suggestion for the management, I would have liked to have a bathrobe in the room. Possibly another suggestion would be to have the ability to pre-order drinks/snacks before arrival so that I wouldn't have to look for these items after arrival and stores may be closed

Beautiful, comfortable room with fabulous views. Clean and well stocked kitchenette. Beware the onsite restaurant. No posted menu prices, buffet breakfast on Sat and Sun doubles in price on Sunday for same food offerings and definitely not worth the price.

Thank you very much for your great review, Maggie. The breakfast buffet served at the Bar One is not managed by Embarc Vancouver but the Sheraton Wall Centre. I'd strongly recommend that you reach out to them directly at 604-331-1000 and see why you were charged twice as much on your second breakfast on Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you again soon!

Beautiful location. Parking was expensive by personal standards. Staff helpful. Sheraton staff accommodating to offer Embarc guests assistance when Embarc staff were not available. Pre-Arrival communication was appreciated to make us aware of ongoing construction.

I use the EMBARC club at the Sheraton wall repeatedly and feel very welcome and comfortable. While I miss the decor from the Intrawest days it has been upgraded and well maintained. The staff from housekeeping to the Guest services management are friendly, helpful and courteous. All you have to do is ask! I love being able to use the lounge for hosting friends and family to small informal gatherings. I feel proud to be a member!

There were no "hidden" costs, I don't recall having to pay for anything upon check out, except for the breakfasts which I had in the lobby cafe which can be charged to the room
