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.

This hotel is in a perfect location off two great shopping streets Alberni and Robson. Nice views of the north shore on the higher floors. The doormen and front desk staff are friendly. They recently redecorated the main spaces and several floors. Only thing that has yet to be upgraded is the gym. Outdated equipment including a 1980's cement filled... More

I stayed 8 nights at the Carmana Plaza with my husband and 3 month old baby. The location is great, in the middle of everything, right accross a supermarket / cafe / deli and walking distance to most Downtown amenities in Vancouver. The apartment was roomy, clean and neat, with a stunning view and perfect for what we needed. The... More

We have stayed at the Carmana several times. The location is the same as many 5 star Vancouver hotels - right of Robson and Thurlow in the middle of all the shopping/restaurants downtown. There is secure parking, the beds are very comfortable and the rooms are large and come with an equipped kitchen. There is a specialty grocery store across... More

What a great place. Booked this hotel from Australia for 4 nights before we boarded a cruise back to Australia. We had been travelling to Vancouver via Hawaii for 8 nights prior, so needed somewhere we could cook a meal, have laundry up to date and central for our hop on hop off 48 hr bus ticket. This hotel fit... More

The Carmana Plaza is in an excellent, downtown Vancouver location with access to shuttles, buses, and close to the harbor, the Vancouver art museum, Gastown, Chinatown and is the place to place if you are visiting this city for the first time, as we were. The suite had everything we needed and then some--a great living/dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen,... More

We arrived early but the very helpful receptionist contacted housekeeping and got us a suite as soon as possible. Upon entering the room we saw that it did not have a balcony (the floor plan on the website was showing as having a balcony - upon closer inspection this applied only to the corner suites). The following day, we were... More

Two bedroom suite, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen (for real, full stove with oven, dishwasher, full size fridge) Balcony, living room, dining room. Felt like we were living there! Secure underground parking was included! Staff were wonderful, we arrived... More

One of the best hotels with standard suites I've stayed in all of my travels. I travel with work a lot and usually can only get a room on my budget. The Carmana allows you to have an office, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom for the same budget. It's not massive but it's exactly what you need. Comfy couch... More
