4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 1 day prior to a cruise that started in Vancouver. This is a great little hotel. Room was nice, bed was comfy, staff was courteous. Within walking distance of multiple restaurants, bridges and Granville Island. I didn't get to take advantage of the free bicycles they have but had I had more time I definitely would have.

I turn to Best Western's for a good stay in a nice, clean room for a decent price and this one didn't disappoint in the least. Nice corner room, basic but still very nice with everything you need (including the handy mini fridge you can actually use, not stuffed with auto-billing drinks...). But for an excellent price during the busy... More

We had a room on the second floor and were a little worried about street noise, but it quiets down at night and didn't bother us at all. Comfortable beds, nice decor, safety deposit box available. Bathroom small but adequate and, more importantly, clean. The aircon worked well but was quite noisy. Staff were all courteous and friendly. There's a... More

We had four nights in the hotel and thought it was decent value given that it was tourist season and the World Cup was playing in Vancouver at the time. The immediate district is a little run down but it is only a few blocks from some decent eateries in Yaletown and walking/running/riding paths around English Bay. We couldn't have... More

We enjoyed our two nights stay at the Best Western. Everyone was very pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is convenient to shopping and eating. I do not remember the name of the hotel restaurant but the food for dinner and breakfast was delicious.

We were very lucky to stumble across this hotel with lots to offer. The rooms are huge, had a two double room, with plenty of space for a roll away bed and all of our luggage. Loved having a kitchenette too. The location was perfect for us, with a grocery store, restaurants, Granville island and more within walking distance. Felt... More

This is a nice property with courteous staff and a great location. We arrived to find a larger than expected room (but not carpeted). We had an issue with the A/C which was making a loud noise, and since no other comparable rooms were available, we managed the noise by unplugging the A/C unit. Hotel management accommodated by providing a... More

The hotel is located in downtown, so you are in a walking distance from everything. It's a few blocks walk to Robson, few blocks to Yaletown and withing 15mins of Gastown or across the bridge from Granville Island. There's allso a possibility to loan bikes or take the complimentary shuttle drive. The hotel is in decent shape and the rooms... More

Actually I'm here right now waiting for Alaska cruise tomorrow. We've only recently discovered the Best Western PLUS, and the plus really comes through here. We have a two room suite that even has a small Keurig coffee maker in the room. Also, a balcony over looking downtown and a tv in the living area AND bedroom. A delicious restaurant... More

Front desk staff was great. Room was actually quite large and a nice layout with separate bedroom and living area. Room was quite stale smelling however. Needed a good airing out. Smelled like it was ridden hard and put away wet. Too bad air con unit wasn't in bedroom.
