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

Stayed here in late-May for 3 nights for an international conference and found the hotel good from a "value" perspective. While it is not a 4- or 5-star property compared to its competitors (two Fairmonts and Marriott Pinnacle) close by, it is functional in terms of good food, comfortable if a bit tired rooms and a nice gym along with...

A very good hotel in a great location. Very friendly and courteous staff. Nice restaurant in the lobby. Rooms could use a little updating, especially in the bathrooms. Rooms near the elevators are especially noisy, but away from the elevators are fairly well sound insulated. Would stay here again.

We paid the extra for a room that looked through to the harbour with the seaplane station on the right. It was well worth it. We then ordered room service in the morning with the door open onto the small balcony and looked out onto the view eating our breakfast. However, for the class of hotel the Restuarant was not...
