Filled with craft artist vendors and more. Grab a bite from the many food vendors and sit along the sea wall parking is very limited so take a water taxi from downtown. There is also several very good sit down restaurants. Always busy so be prepared

Our fourth visit. Will definitely be back as Granville Island and hotel are excellent place for quiet and interesting vacation. The Dockside dining room and patio provide an interesting view onto the water, boats and kayaks sailing past as well as the city and mountains

The hotel indicated that they had parking available. They did not say we had to scramble to find it on a busy summer night on Granville Island. The rooms are on the small side, as are the beds. The hotel is expensive without the extras (save for a decent business centre) that one expects for the price. The location is... More

gihotel, Director of Sales at Granville Island Hotel, responded to this review

Dear WhitehorseVancouver, Thank you for coming and thank you for your thoughts. Parking is tough here but you know that acres of parking would ruin this place. Since we are at sea level, we can't have underground parking, so our only solution to this problem would be to take some of the most beautiful and most valuable land in the... More

Fabulous hotel with wonderful staff in the best location. Make sure you book a balcony room with a water view. Upscale property that is worth every penny. Walk to everything on Granville island has to offer. Parking is an issue but the hotel works to fit everyone in. Comfortable beds, modern bathroom, and well stocked mini bar. did not eat... More

Great location and walkable to many shops and restaurants. Close to water. Easy access to come and go from parking. Our room on the top floor was nice with vaulted ceilings. My kids also liked the room. We would stay here again.

What can I say? Loved, loved, loved this hotel. We were lucky to get accommodations here during the FIFA Women's World Cup--after we had searched lots of other places. We stayed for a couple of days during our 'West Coast Trip.' No regrets! Gorgeous hotel, excellent staff, amazing room with an awesome view (corner room with windows on two walls).... More

Our stay was great. Only problem was when the restaurant ran out of Prime Rib at 7 p.m. the night we chose to eat there. Very poor planning on their part. Waiter saved the day. Never lost his smile and recommended an delicious alternative.

The Granville Island Hotel provided a friendly efficient registration desk staff and a large spotless well-furnished room with a gorgeous view of False Creek and the park. The location is close to the market, shops and restaurants. Two water taxi services connect the island to various locations along False Creek and the beach. We spent the last night of our... More

The Granville Island Hotel is my favourite place to stay in Vancouver. It is a quiet retreat, beautiful location, excellent service and an all around special place. Although you might think it hectic given its location, I have never found it so. You can walk and bicycle the sea wall, take the water taxis, head to the fabulous market, art... More
