3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a room on the 9th floor. Friendly and helpful staff. Room and bathroom clean and good size. Location for the sights reasonable. Vicinity of hotel was overwhelmed with down and outs after about 2pm in the afternoon. They were harmless but first impressions were off-putting. I would do your research thoroughly before choosing the location of this hotel.... More

We recently stayed here on our trip to Vancouver. At first we were unsure as the neighbourhood looked a bit run down, but it ended up being a great choice. The rooms were comfortable and the staff were great. The location was perfect - 10 minutes to Canada Place, 5 minutes to Stanley Park and right off of the Granville... More

The hotel was clean and welcoming. We mentioned that we were on our honeymoon and the staff brought us a complimentary bottle of wine. Excellent customer service. The whirlpool and gym are small but do what they say on the tin plus the views from up there are amazing. Great location - we walked everywhere.

Our first impression of this hotel was not good, but it did improve. We arrived early, our room wasn't ready so we went for a walk to try to find some lunch. The immeidate vicinity of the hotel is not good. There are quite a few beggars (particulalry outside the 7/11), and though I think it was perfectly safe, my... More

We had the misfortune of staying here for four days as part of a tour of the Canadian Rockies. The hotel is located in a very shady area that reeks of pot. Upon arriving, we noticed that our air conditioner wasn't working and notified the front desk. They said they would send someone up to look at it. Three days... More

Hotel is close to the Canada Line and is walking distance to downtown area- about 20 minute walk. Good location for transportation for free shuttles to Capilano Suspension Bridge. Rooms were average size, beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. The free shuttle to downtown was good. The front desk was very helpful, especially Sally and Kevin. I... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. It was clean, comfortable and friendly. It is in a good location for restaurants, buses, the bay and the city centre (about a 30 min walk). The bar and restaurant were good with nice food. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Staying at the Best Western Plus in Vancouver was great! It was a very nice and clean hotel. They also served breakfast here too! Which is a huge plus. Very good, but the only down side was that it was in a restaurant where you couldn't just serve yourself. Also, had speedy wifi that was available to us. I recommend... More

We had a large group staying at the hotel, all arriving different dates & times. We were there over two nights before we headed out on a cruise. The staff was extraordinarily friendly, helping coordinate luggage, cabs and questions galore. The lobby could get rather crowded and yet they were unflagging and fast-paced without getting overwhelmed. The bellman, who was... More

Even though we had booked 2 nights, we had to change rooms after first night due to heavy booking at this site. Traffic noise from busy adjacent street was somewhat annoying even though we were on the 10th floor!
