I would like to say that the staff are good and the room was clean. However this hotel is very old an in need of updates. The windows might as well have been open all night and we heard every noise outside including people talking. We were on the 12th floor. I am sorry but I DO NOT recommend this... More

Booked an overnight room on-line in April 2014 for mid-August 2014 and received email confirmation, but on check-in, hotel indicated they had no rooms and they were "expecting" us to check-in the following day. As this was peak tourist season, and they blew off my reservation, all they had was a room that needed substantial maintenance, including no refrigerator or... More

I stayed here to see Tom Petty with a friend from out of town. Our options for hotels were extremely limited and in the 25-30 times I've been over to Vancouver, I've never seen the city this booked up. Unfortunately my friend locked into the Tropicana Suite Hotel. This is not a hotel, it's an old apartment that hasn't been... More

I came to Vancouver with my family and we decided to stay at Tropicana given the price and location. We were aware that it would be a budget hotel so we tried to keep our expectations low. Positives: 1. Location: Perfect location, you are right on Robson Street for shopping and a short beautiful walk from Stanley Park and English... More

This hovel that masquerades as a "hotel" is likely the worst place you will hopefully NEVER stay! A filthy foyer (with a matching floor) "welcomes" you! Disappear in the stifling corridor, on the way to the lift ( also with putrid carpet) and emerge at your floor, with not a breath of air. BEWARE : no air conditioning. Disgusting, filthy... More

We had a relaxing stay in a spacious One-Bedroom Suite with kitchenette (coffeemaker, fridge, cooking range). It has a room with 2 twin beds and a sofa bed in the living room, which has a ceiling to floor glass windows for a great view outside. The location is great, in the major street in Downtown Vancouver, with restaurants, shops, parks,... More

This old hotel was probably converted from apartments. It needs an update badly, but due to it's location and price may be worth looking into. It is located over a restaurant, so the noise level is on the high side with thee windows open and It is roomy and has a laundry mat in the basement. I probably would opt... More

The gentleman on reception asked me to post a review as I was checking out, here goes. I stayed here for a few days on business in stunning Vancouver and came across this hotel online.

Our one night stay was ok - everything functioned (bathroom, kitchen) and most of the lights. The bed was ok - we could have used another blanket. Very spacious suite, great views from the 11th floor. It was quiet and we had a good night's sleep.
