I stayed one night here for a conference recently. If you want to explore Granville Island the location is excellent. You can easily take the harbour ferries and explore all over from this base. The room was comfortable and had a nice view of the harbour. I am not a big fan of tile floors and this is what they... More

Stayed at the hotel for the Canada/England soocer match. Check in was fast, friendly and easy. We ate breakfast on the deck every morning. The view was awesome. The food was very good. In particular the maple sausages and the Huevos plate were real stand outs. The waiters we had both days were attentive, friendly and polished. Our room was... More

Polite front desk staff, great diningroom area. The staff had been trained to smile and say hello everytime they saw you, very nice experience. Told the cleaning lady she did not have to make up my room over the two day stay and she obliged! Typically they just come in and make the room up so no extra towels or... More

Poor service in dining areas due to lack of servers. Five people NOT allowed to sit at a table in the SHADE for drinks. Two were grown children. Forced to sit on uncomfortable sofas in the blasting HOT afternoon sun. Another night, wanted a burger for dinner, but not allowed. Very expensive menu at lunch and dinner. No food after... More

Dear rubberducky2005 I'm sorry your Dockside experience left you wanting. All of the managers and a good portion of the staff here read these reviews carefully, and be assured we do take everything our guest say to heart. I know that sometimes there are mysteries of food service that will never sense to those on the outside, but it is... More

Staying on the island cuts down on all the driving you would otherwise have to do. The hotel has a wonderful staff & they're pet friendly. Dining on the patio is a treat. It's spendy but worth it. I recommend you give it a try.

Hi marjk2015 Sounds like you did your Granville Island experience properly. Driving around town is a pain. Vancouver is best seen on foot, by bike or by boat. Thanks for coming! More

Not giving the full five stars because one of the two standard rooms we received was quite small, the other more than adequate. Lovely bathrooms. Balcony of the larger room so small as to be unusable with both chairs and the small table, had to remove one of the three to get out there. Confused as to why neither room... More

Hi jal52 Thank you for your comments - Our hotel is an amalgamation of 4 separate buildings, only one of which was purpose built as a hotel, and all of which have had to adhere to strict design criteria set by Granville Island to evoke its industrial past. It has presented us with some really neat opportunities, and a few... More

Hubby and I stayed at GIH for 2 nights before heading north to Whistler and returning to Vancouver to stay in the city center. It could not have been a more perfect choice.... Close to everything, yet a nice respite from the bustle of downtown. Our view was amazing, the bed- so comfy, the staff was lovely, the ambiance -... More

The Granville Island Hotel is in a fantastic location for enjoying the hub of the island community whilst kicking back and relaxing over the beautiful marina. The service was fantastic, rooms well appointed and comfortable, meals delicious, and we loved the quirky brewery aspect to the hotel. Great lager after a long hot day in the sun!

This hotel was absolutely charming. The service was efficient, very professional and responsive. Given the location I expected it would be arrogant and condescending like many are but no, it was brilliant! I would recommend it to a friend.
