Coming off an Alaskan Cruise, we decided to extend our vacation and spend some time in Vancouver. Upon our arrival, Salima helped us check in. During our conversation, we told her that it was our first visit to Vancouver. After the check in process was complete, Salima gathered some city information and asked us to sit with her for a...

Having been a marriott platinum/ gold member for as long as I can remember with over 900 nights lifetime I wanted to take a moment and talk about my 8 day stay here last week. First the good and very good.....the hotel is clean which is always of paramount importance to me. And the staff from top to bottom was... More

Stayed here for three nights prior to cruise to Alaska. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They always seemed to be ahead of our needs. The most valuable asset they have is their concierge, Alex. I was struggling with finding appropriate tours, etc. and contacted her prior to our visit. She was so energetic and helpful I was very...

We stayed a single night before and then for 5 nights after an Alaska cruise organised by Celebrity A regular business hotel; much what one would expect from a large US chain. Some observations and comments: Absolutely disgraceful episode when checking in for the five nights: our package gave us a harbourside room upgrade (from city view) for free, but... More

On balance, we were somewhat disappointed with the property that is the Renaissance Vancouver Harborside. As other reviewers have pointed out, the rooms are pretty small. Our room looked out over the harbor and would have been very nice had the view not been partially obstructed by two very tall buildings, and we were on the 16th floor. The lobby... More

The hotel is obviously older, though the lobby has definitely been redone to be more modern. We were greeted promptly and politely by all staff we encountered. The gentleman who checked me in offered me complimentary WiFi access which was nice. I'm starting to notice this at some hotels though I haven't quite figured out what you have to do... More

After staying with Marriot & Coast hotels in BC, tried here for a change....big mistake. Queues at check in, queues for breakfast & an extra $6 for a cappuccino? slow service and a grumpy bar manager that insisted that we couldn't use the empty balcony on a warm evening. Add to that rough towels, empty mini bar, 10mins to retrieve... More

I was at our annual Epicure Selections Conference at the Vancouver Convention Ctr. Staying at the Renaissance Vancouver was just a few stone throws away. Many of our Consultants, Leaders & Directors stayed at this location as well. I arrived before check in time and was able to keep my luggage secure until access to our room. Wow, one of... More

Overall had a good hotel experience. They charge your card as soon as you book it so you're kind of in for whatever; but I would book it again. They upgraded us to a bay view room on check in and that was very nice. Friendly staff and efficient check in. Room was commodious and nice facilities with pool and... More
