The wedding we were going to was held at the hotel so we decided to stay there. What a great choice! The hotel was wonderful. The wedding was fabulous. Everything from the food, the staff and the room was excellent. Would stay there again.

We unexpectedly had one night to stay in Vancouver area and chose the Granville hotel hoping to experience as much of the area as possible. It was perfect. Concierge recommended great restaurants and we could rent bikes to explore island. Hotel food was great (although pricey). Room was spotless which was very important. Room was a bit small as we...

I stayed at the Granville Island Hotel for a few days this summer. This hotel is in a great location along the harbor. The rooms are clean and well kept. I would say the hotel staff is first rate and makes your stay even better. I highly recommend this hotel. It is walking distance to the market place, restaurant and... More

We are a 50ish couple who live in South Surrey Vancouver area. We often take mini-vacations near Vancouver. We decided to try one right in our own city for special occasion. We chose the Granville Island Hotel and loved it. Although it had a smaller balcony overlooking False Creek than we hoped for, and although it did not have a... More

Hotel needs to update; beautiful setting and close to everything you want! Restaurant very expensive and service poor! Use the stairs not the elevator; spent 15 minutes of our vacation stuck in their; not too much fun! Pretty pricey for what you get!

Dear 381traveler Thank you for your thoughts on your stay. These are one of the types hardest reviews for to me read because there is just so little we can do about it! We try our best to be open and transparent about the rooms here. As this hotel was built in stages, and most of it not as a... More

Vehicle and pedestrian traffic is a nightmare to navigate through on the island before you even get to the hotel. Access to hotel is very congested with no indication of where to park. Very limited parking unless you pay for valet. Rooms are very tiny and for the price you pay, are very average.

Very relaxing, friendly staff and good room. Although not the hotel's issue the island is very congested and finding a parking spot for hotel guests is a challenge. There are specific spots for hotel guests but patient with this issue is required. There is lots to see on the island. The proximity to downtown Vancouver makes the location ideal.

Great location, plenty to do around the hotel area. The hotel is very comfortable very pleasant staff in all locations. The restaurant and outside dining area being on the wateredge is a great location.

Watch out for the bait-and-switch. Room photos and descriptions on their website are not what you actually get. "Water view" includes rooms with a only a view of roofs and downspouts. When I brought this to the front desk's attention, they readily pointed to a disclaimer in the fine print that said, "Rooms vary in size and layout." They seems... More

Beautiful views, easy access to fun things to do and walking along the sea wall. Easy access to Vancouver, via the water taxis. Great food and friendly staff. Many shops and markets with easy walking distance that offer locally made arts and crafts as well as food.
