Overall, the hotel was fine, friendly service, nice restaurant. But we arrived very late, were given a room with nonworking AC. They could not fix it (engineering had left for the day); they moved us to another room. The AC worked but was very noisy, waking us up in the night. Also, the lights by the bed in the new... More

Great room with a mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave and laminate flooring. Staff was friendly and were able to accommodate our request for early check-in. It was really hectic with people checking out for a cruise, waiting for a shuttle when we arrived. Bellman stored our luggage while we grabbed a bite to eat. Free wifi and free shuttle make this...

My wife and i stayed here twice over past couple of weeks and found the location and service, excellent. The rooms are quiet large with small fridge and microwave, with a coffee percolator, access to free chilled water and ice machine. It is in walking distance to Granville Island and the hotel gave us free one way tickets on the... More

We enjoyed our stay. The room was small, but very nice and made efficient use of the space. We made use of the free bike rentals and area shuttle. We were disappoint the spa was not working. It was a great experience overall

The hotel is well-located for tourism, within walking distance of the metro and plenty of bus routes. You can get a book of 10 transit tickets at the nearby 7-11, and use the good wi-fi in the hotel to understand the transit system. The hotel lends out a few bikes but, sorry, I would not trust their maintenance. There is... More

Attended a concert at Rogers Arena. Nice room with rooftop ping pong- really enjoyed that and all the city views too. Free shuttle to concert and only 15 minute walk back afterwards. Definitely we stay again in the future. Very friendly staff .

Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quite modern. Nice to have a microwave, fridge, coffee machine and water kettle in the room. Water coolers on each floor. Enjoyed the fitness center but the Jacuzzi was out of order. Close to shopping and Rogers Arena. Nice to have a White Spot right in the hotel. Parkade available but... More

I visited Vancouver last week for an impromptu trip with some friends, and couldn't be more pleased with our decision to stay at the Downtown Best Western! The hotel is located in a great neighborhood flourished with an endless supply of activity and restaurants ranging from delightfully dive-y diners to upscale cuisine, depending on your style. The room we stayed... More

Of all the BW Pluses I have stayed at, this one is right there at the top. Impeccable service, and great facilities and amenities. What else can you ask for? I had initially booked a room via booking dot com, but when going directly through the BW site a few days later, I was able to find a better deal.... More

Front desk staff very friendly and efficient and not harried by being surrounded by those checking in, those checking out and those asking questions. Kevin in particular was top notch. Complimentary breakfast was HUGE! Scrambled eggs, juice, 4 pieces of buttered toast, 2 sliced of bacon, and hot potatoes (hash browns) plus tea/coffee would satisfy the heartiest of appetites.
