3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Among a bunch of business-oriented hotels in downtown Van,I'd have thought the competition would have driven better performance. The Renaissance does most routine things well, but they seem to have missed the point about offering something a little extra to make me want to stay here again. Incongruously, they've invented a flashy and efficient front end webpage for how you... More

Hotel will drop out of the Marriott network at the end of the month. If services remain at the same level as today there should be no decline in the quality of the stay. The location, modern amenities, and staff’s behavior all exceed expectations. There are many franchise choices in the Convention area but the professionalism and friendliness of the... More

I've been traveling to Vancouver for over 25 years now, but this was my first time at the Renaissance Harbourside - but it won't be my last. An absolutely delightful and professional staff, rooms with all the amenities (including a Juliette balcony!) and views that cannot be beat, easy access to the convention center for meetings, in the midst of...

I have stayed in this hotel at least once a year for the last 5 or 6 years and enjoyed every stay. The hotel always looks in top condition, clean and smelling fresh in all areas, not just the rooms. The guest rooms are a good size have all the standard amenities you would expect. The room layout is good... More

We stayed one night here and were very comfortable. Our room had gorgeous views to the harbour and the seaplanes taking off, landing and refuelling. Breakfast was good. Delicious bacon! It is an older property but the downtown location is fantastic.

I stayed here four nights in Jan 15 for a professional meeting. Quiet rooms, easy access to waterfront, helpful staff. Things are standard hotel room quality--medium-size room with king bed and extra small chaise that perhaps a child cold sleep on. Bathroom adequate, shower great, Aveda toiletries. Very clean, so far as I can tell.

The harborside has a very convenient location and if are able to get harbor view rooms, it's worth it. Being that we were not in our room much it didn't matter a lot to us. We checked in at 4:00 pm and there was a huge lines up with only one person at the desk. After standing in line for... More

I stayed here earlier this year. Renaissance Marriotts are always different. There is not much uniformity across the brand, besides that it will be slightly gaudy. The decor in the rooms is somewhat odd, but adequate. The lobby is rather nice, but since there is an absurd charge for internet in the room...there are a ton of stragglers hanging out... More

This hotel has spectacular view of the harbour if you are able to get a room on that side of the building. We are part a large group staying at the hotel and the bellman at the front door went out of his way to help one of the out of towers find his way back to our hotel including... More

I rarely write reviews, but after staying here over New Years I felt like I needed to share my experience. First off check in is at 3:00pm, wanting to surprise my significant other I show up around 3:30 hoping to get checked in and organized early. First off, I waited in the check in line for 30 minutes, what a... More

Kevin M, Manager at Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Samantha, No need to say sorry for your review. Clearly we did not meet your expectations which of course I am sorry to see. While New Year's Eve is very busy for our hotel there is no excuse for extended lines (which really don't leave a good first impression). Clearly we need to review our staffing levels for such...
