This apartment had everything we needed and a grocery store across the road for anything else! Great location for sightseeing, shopping, transport etc. room was quiet. Bedrooms are not large, but this is downtown. We had a two bedroom for 4 people. Highly recommend.

During our Christmas and New Year holiday visit, my wife (who is from Vancouver) and i stayed at Carmana Plaza for twelve nights in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite. My wife's parents stayed with us for seven of those nights and we had plenty of room for comfort. The Plaza was centrally located in Downtown Vancouver, directly across the... More

I have stayed here for years. The staff and management really care about your stay. They are terrific. It is clean and quiet. This is my home away from home. Fantastic location to enjoy the best Vancouver has to offer.

Carmana plaza has the worst front desk I have ever witnessed in my life time. First they provide us with vague information about our room telling us that we need to wait for house cleaning and that check in isn't till 4. We arrived earlier not knowing there was a checkin time however a family infront of us arrived early... More

First time staying in Carmana, I like it very much. I booked the one-bedroom room. The dining room and living room is separated by glass, which still gives you a spacious feel. It will be great that if you wanted to stay for a few days, and have some guests coming over to visit.

Delightful staff, gorgeous room styled like an apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and lounge. Well appointed with a variety of kitchen implements, comfortable furniture and beds, great cleaning service daily. Location ideal near the centre... More

Our family of four stayed here after we got back from our Alaskan cruise. We chose this hotel because of the suite which gave each of us some space. Our suite had two rooms, one with an en suite, one other bathroom, a sleeper sofa and a small kitchen. We were in a corner balcony street facing Alberni on the... More

The Carmana Plaza is a well kept "secret" in Vancouver. The staff was more than accomodating of a need to get into our room earlier than planned (although I will add this was probably a one-off courtesy, and most appreciated at that). After a lapse in my own travel planning judgment we were left one hotel and realized it would... More

Downtown but not buried right in the office complexes, a couple blocks away. Next to shopping, both groceries and retail. Lots of great dining options within a block radius. Rooms are furnished, can do own cooking! a home away from home.
