I received more value and comfort and paid less than I imagined I would need to to stay in downtown Vancouver BC. The staff was helpful in checking in and helping us make connections for our departure the next day and the beds were comfortable.

The updates done in this hotel have increased its comfortability. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast makes for a good start to the day. Proximity to the funky Main Street shops and eateries is a bonus! However, if you drive a vehicle larger than mid size you will have a difficult time parking, as the lot is quite... More

I have stayed at the BW Downtown for many years, as I can always rely on courteous and quick check in, clean and nicely appointed rooms, and an excellent location. Recently they have re-decorated, and the rooms are nicer than ever: comfy mattresses and nice pillows,nice amenities in the bathroom, individual reading lights, coffee maker, etc. Room 905 was perfect....

This is a great hotel at a great price with friendly and helpful staff! Hardwood/laminate flooring instead of dirty carpet, with very roomy and clean room. Rooms seem to be well insulated for sound as well as there were no disturbances other than the AC/Heat turning on in the middle of the night which was quite loud and vibrated excessively... More

This hotel is just now completing room renovations, Feb 2015. These rooms are beautifully done in a contemporary design and very clean. They have a great out door patio, gym, Jacuzzi and sauna at the top of the hotel that overlooks the city. Very good service and secure underground parking. The desk gave us some great ideas for Sushi restaurants.

We booked the 'Penthouse' and I use that term loosely because in my opinion it was not a Penthouse. The value for the size of it was Ok, however it should be marketed as a Junior Suite NOT a Penthouse! The bathroom was smaller than it is in regular rooms. The shower was SO small my husband could barely wash... More
