Great room comfortable, clean, helpful staff and convenient. The fully equipped kitchen was a great bonus. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. Parking was close by and could keep an eye on my vehicle.

Great location if visiting a student or colleague at UBC. Great for long term stays since you have a kitchen and are able to prepare meals. Can be very noisy due to construction and rowdy students. Very accessible for the Chan Center and the museum of anthropology.

Perfect location to visit UBC for campus tour or if your child attends. Room was clean, decent size and comfortable. The small kitchenette is a bonus for breakfasts. While the sofa bed was just okay, the teenager was sleeping on it so he thought it was comfortable, adults might not. The king bed was quite comfortable.

I stayed only one night to attend an event at the Chan Centre, but I found the accommodations to be very good. The only quibble was that the cleaning staff missed cleaning out the last guest's food from the fridge. However, that didn't diminish my overall experience. Looking forward to staying there again!

Great, clean room at a reasonable rate. Very cozy with a lot of added touches to make your stay comfortable. My father was having surgery close by, so it gave my mother and I a place to relax. She says she could live here she loved it so much! Super helpful and friendly staff.

I stayed here for two nights while in Vancouver for work. As I was attending a conference at UBC, I wanted to be as close as possible to campus. The West Coast Suites was perfect. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the room was spotless. The wifi was good. The room comes with a small fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, pots...

Large, quiet suite with balcony and full kitchen on the beautiful UBC campus. Free wifi, free long distance in North America, a comfortable bed, and excellent service--all for a very reasonable price--make this a an excellent choice for visitors to Vancouver. No connection with UBC is required to stay here. My only reservation is the lack of nearby restaurants other...

We needed a night for an early morning appointment at UBC Hospital. This was perfect, a 10 minute straight line walk to UBC Hospital. Parking is $10/extra, but is right out front and as it is a pass has in and out privileges. Room is great for 2, but could sleep 4 in the living room hide a bed. Downsize...

Hotel is mixed in with residences and dorms so is difficult to find. Unique that it also shares a lobby with the University. Once in the room however it was nice, spacious with a kitchenette and bedroom off the main living room area.

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighbourhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
