My boyfriend and I visited the spa for our anniversary. The staff were very friendly and the massage was nice, but I was extremely disappointed with the change room. It was so small and with 4 other women in there at the same time, there was literally no where to have any privacy. I felt extremely rushed as I wanted... More

My pedicure at Absolute Spa at the Century plaza was fantastic. Jodi, the aesthetician, knows how to pamper! The service was well done: relaxing foot and leg massage and careful clipping and polish application. The day I was there there was one other client, which made for a zen experience. However, it's not always that quiet so if you're looking... More

The RMT massage was good but the price was exorbitant; can have the same i hour massage for $35 less at many other day spas. Seem to be paying for the possible use of the pool and a tiny steam room plus a "complimentary" salad; chicken if you eat meat, otherwise no vegetarian protein whatsoever (seriously --- you can't even...

Admittedly, I am a spa "tramp", and am not loyal to one particular spa (e.g. I get my nails done elsewhere)... but I have to say that I have only ever had spectacular service at the Absolute Spa at The Century. They are clearly trained well, as the service is quite consistent over the years -- from the person who... More

I wish I could give a 5 star review because I was so impressed with the staff and in particular the RMT who did my 90 minute massage, but unfortunately the facilities are sub-par. I visited the spa with my mother and two aunts, two of us had 90 minute massages with RMTs and the other two had body scrubs... More

I visited the spa recently with a few girlfriends. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The spa services were good. What fell short of expectations were the amenities of the spa. There weren't any cups or glasses in the relaxation room and we had to request both before and after our services. I was surprised that they did not... More

I visited the Century Vancouver location and was lucky enough to enjoy a full body massage, facial, pedicure and manicure. All of the staff were excellent, super friendly and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Anne M

My husband and I visited this spa toward the end of our trip. Everyone was very friendly! My husband said it was the best massage he had ever had, and he is hard to please, he usually says they don't do it hard enough. I had an hour and a half massage also and it was great! I do like... More

I booked several weeks in advance for my friend and I to have a full body massage and paraffin body wrap. We arrived 15 minutes for our treatments, filled out the forms and were on our way. We were led downstairs to a shared change room. It was a very tiny space, with enough lockers for 9 - 10 people.... More

I booked this visit for my wife and I as a "just for fun thing to do. I had seen some reviews about Absolute Spa online and expected greatness. We had gone to Scandinave Spa in Whistler before which set the bar high and that was amazing. But I digress. The girl at reception was not pleasant. Robotic without smile... More

Staying in Granville Street

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
