As others note, redecoration is long overdue. Upholstery is dirty and worn; the carpet is horrible; there's this musty odor. But it's spacious, has a small kitchen and is walking distance to Stanley Park in one direction and the Vancouver Art Gallery and Heritage District in the other. The bed is comfortable, the linens are clean, and the bathroom functions.... More

Excellent central location on Robson St. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. Hotel and room itself was quite outdated but did have a kitchenette which was useful. I slept on the fold out sofa- good as it was separate from the bedroom. However the mattress felt very lumpy and I was woken by sunlight streaming through the kitchen blind.... More

Stayed one night at The Tropicana as booked through the BC tourism centre. Firstly it's not very close to the Skytrain station (not the hotel's fault, but worth noting) We were on the 10th floor on the Robson Road side and it was noisy, the windows aren't double glazed nor sealed at all (actually I had to wedge a piece...

I would call The Tropicana "shabby chic". Slightly worn around the edges but, clean and full of character. The suite was comfy, very clean and I couldn't hear the neighbors at all. The kitchen was impeccably clean and supplied with dishes and cookware, all in clean working order. I could walk in my socks on the rug and they stayed... More

This all suite hotel is a mix of residents and guests. We were delighted to find a clean apartment with a wonderful staff who were very helpful. If you are looking for a multi-cultural experience in a multi-cultural city, this is your place. If you are a Holiday Inn type with prefab breakfast of junk food, you may want to... More

After a recommendation from a our group made a reservation at this hotel when we were traveling to Vancouver on business and added a personal day on to our trip. We knew that we were staying at a budget hotel but this was so "low-rent" that you couldn't pay me to stay there. The first impression was so deplorable we... More

This hotel does not appear to have had any updating since the 1970's. It might have been a three star when first opened, but is a zero star now. Filthy carpets, holes in the walls, holes in the sheets, no doors on the closets, rock hard mattresses, threadbare towels. Intense and nauseating smell of smoke. We had to sleep with... More

I am not sure why this hotel is only #72 of 108. I loved staying there. The lobby is very nice - clean and airy. The rooms are like little apartments, with a kitchenette and living room. There is a fridge and microwave, so you can bring home left overs from some of the great restaurants in the area, or... More

We stayed at the Tropicana for 3 nights at the end of August 2008. It was easy to find on Robson St (despite the road work being done further up Robson). We got a great parking spot right in front of check in and best of all, the parking spot was FREE. Free!!! That's a good value in a fairly... More
