“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 3 June 2012 via mobile

I stayed here 6 nights and was very impressed with the unit, (which was on the 16th floor), and the staff very helpful. The unit was also very quiet, even though my room was next to the lift I never heard a thing. The situation was also very convenient and close to amenities, particularly the Urban Fare across the road. Really appreciated the free WiFi.

Hotel was in a great location, room was excellent and the overall experience was pretty good. Urban fare opposite was too expensive, we went to Safeways about three blocks down Robson Street. It's also next door to Tim Hortons always a bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room these come with the addition of a small balcony with table and chairs

Excellent location, great hotel, centre of downtown, close to everything! We loved this apartment style hotel. We had a separate bedroom, bathroom, living room, sunroom office and kitchen. Great view of the city and mountains from the 24th floor. Close to walk or bus to Stanley Park, walk over the Granville bridge to Granville Island. Urban Fare across the street had excellent food, a bit on the pricey side but cheaper than going out for breakfast. Staff was excellent and welcoming. Safe neighbourhood. Coffee shops and liquor store on Alberni and around the corner.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the city and mountains are preferred. Very light and bright rooms.

This is the second we stay at Carmana Plaza and we were not disappointed. The bonus for us is to find that there is a good food store right opposite the apartments, Urban Fare where we did all our food shopping during our week long stay in Vancouver. We like the selections and quality of goods on offer there.

The apartment is well kept, clean and spacious. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is well equipped. It provides a good supply of coffee and tea bags. I must add that the tea bags are excellent. The staff is always helpful and welcoming. The location is great as we are able to walk to most places and discovered some interesting places during our walks.

We would not hesitate to recommend our friends to visit Vancouver and stay there. If we have the opportunity to visit Vancouver again we would definitely go back to Carmana Plaza.

I was in Vancouver for 5 nights, and I was especially glad to have booked at the Carmana Plaza - I basically had a one-bedroom apartment! With the Urban Fare grocery store across the street (kind of like Whole Foods in the US) I was able to buy breakfast and even a few dinners when I was too tired to go out. It's nice to feel a little less like a hotel guest and more like a local; in fact, the higher level floors are apartments, and the residents with whom I shared hotel rides were quite friendly. The suite was well-equipped, clean, a good size, and I had a view - I could even see the snow-capped mountains past the city. The location is very central, so I could walk everywhere, including (for my purposes) the convention center.
