We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed out stay. Our room seemed a little small, probably because it was a corner room, but it wasn't a problem. The TV receives only analog channels with no PPV, if that's important to you. They provide bicycles for up to 3 hours, which was plenty of time to ride the Seawall... More

We stayed here for only one night after our Alaska cruise. Wish we had more time because it was so nice. The room was clean and modern. We used the bikes to go to Stanley Park. Such a nice idea to have the bicycles available for the guests. Walked to the ferry to Granville. Not a long walk. The hotel... More

Used our Airmiles for this one night stay. We've stayed at this Vancouver BW Plus Downtown many times and have always enjoyed our stay and the service we received. This stay was a little different as we stayed in a corner unit on the 4th floor. Room was much smaller than others in the same hotel. Also, was told our... More

We like this Best Western because we have always had a pleasant stay in a clean, comfortable room in a location near all the areas we frequent in Vancouver. Being on Granville street gives you easy access to nightlife and the aqua bus to Granville Island. We enjoy walking around town and find this hotel a short walk to Robson... More

My husband, myself, and my parents stayed here in June 2014 before an Alaskan cruise. The location was perfect! We could walk to tons of restaurants (a great one was right downstairs), and we could walk to a trolley stop for Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. We were also thrilled with the accommodations.
