5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 3 nights before cruising to Alaska. It's a very nice hotel and ideally located for getting to see the sights of the city. Check in was straightforward and we were delighted with our room. Vary spacious, impeccably clean and well equipped with a fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making things. Just across the street is a 7-11... More

We stayed at the Great Western Downtown on two occasions in August and September 2014 . Both stays were enjoyable and worthwhile. The rooms were adequate in size and extremely clean and well serviced. The desk staff were ALL helpful and friendly especially DENISE who was on night shift the night we arrived after midnight after a 10 hour series... More

Room overlooked street, but it was quiet at night. Lots of bus traffic and busses parked for some reason. Great for walking around to see some of the sights. Restaraunt was not bad. Upon arrival mentioned to desk staff that we had booked a trip with Land and Sea Travel to go to Buchard Gardens. They were kind enough to... More

Walking distance to shopping, food and entertainment. About a $30. taxi ride from the airport or buy a package with it included. Has a Boutique Hotel feel and look to it. The room had a nice layout to it and was quite on our stay. We stayed here before a cruise and would easily stay here again for a longer... More

The hotel is nice and clean, but it goes down from there. The street outside is packed with street people and crappy stores. I would pay more to stay in another area nearer gas town or the pier. The hotel was also very busy with only 2 elevators located in a cramped hall. If you could get on the elevator... More

Booked by Travelsphere, our tour operator, this hotel is well situated downtown for a lot of Vancouver attractions. We mostly walked and were able to access Kitsilano via the Burrard Street bridge,False creek and the many restaurants in Yaletown as well as being only about 30 mins from Canada Place and the excellent Tourist information office in a straightforward north...

Great place for a couple of 65+ travelers to stay. Closeby connivance for eating, snacks, and minor shopping. We used a cab for everything else. Cruise port did not have provision for hotel shuttles, so had to pay for a cab (that was unexpected). Desk agent at checkin kept referring to our room as a suite (and I did not... More

The party of four with whom I was traveling stayed at this hotel our final two nights in B.C. We found it comfortable and pleasant in every respect ... good value for the money. Enjoyed the restaurant associated with the hotel too. Didn't realize Granville was such a "party street" but I felt comfortable going for a walk at 2:00... More

We stayed at BW downtown for 3 nights, our last nights in Canada. It proved to be a hotel with an good location next to Granville Island and close to the city centre. They had a free shuttle drop-off service in the downtown area (not to the airport) and fast Wifi.
