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

Location awesome. Had kayaks and just had to tow them down the dock to water! Room was sound proof. Bed superbly comfortable! Staff was very friendly and helpful! Just wish the price was lower! It shouldn't be that high for a room! Thanks!

Can highly recommend this hotel when visiting Granville Island. The waterfront patio, restaurant and brewery are a MUST. Pay for a room with a waterfront view...well worth it! The ONLY negative was inadequate parking spaces for guests. A real challenge.

Dear N8115WBkarenh Thank you for coming, and thank you for leaving such a great review. A water view is definitely recommended, but my favourite view has always been the view from the back of the hotel, where you can see the big yellow crane, Granville Island and the Granville St Bridge, but that's just me. Parking can be tough as... More

Reservation by phone was satisfactory, although, the attitude of the clerk was not especially helpful or interested when I informed her we would be traveling from the US. This was the only condition to report although it was my first impression of your hotel. Great service otherwise. View from the "Dockside" outdoor patio was quite beautiful. The meal at the... More

location absolute top, dining excellent, unless if there is a wedding and facilities are not available for hotel guests. Small rooms, but good bed. Fitness oke. The outside of the building is very poor and not a match with de quality of dining and spot on the waterfront.

Dear Mariebur Thanks for the compliments on food and beds! I'm sorry about the look of the building; it is not an architectural masterpiece, but there is a story behind it. Granville Island was founded at the turn of the 20th century as an industrial area, and part of the hotel dates from then. Most of False Creek was a... More

My room was really nice, clean and comfortable. Quiet at night and a nice view. Very clean and well equipped with everything you may need. Newspaper in the morning, climate interior was also pretty perfect for myself. Can't guarantee that for everyone.
