This hotel was possibly my worst hotel experience. There are about 12 parking spots for the entire hotel, they don't tell you that until you arrive and have to park about 4 full city blocks away and take a cab to and from your car. The front desk was incredibly discourteous, and when their system was down, they make all... More

This was a good hotel if you are looking for the basics. The most important thing was that it was extremely clean!! Pros: Clean, central location (everything was in walking distance), good bar/restaurant, very kind staff Cons: Tiny room, neighborhood was a bit seedy (sex shops, strip clubs, homeless people around)

We had a Standard Double Bed Room for 3 Nights and the bed is really really small for 2 People (1.20m). The small window was ok but the clima does work with movement sensors (so it stops many times at night). The bath was small but ok, so for a stay of 3 Nights it was ok.

This was the first time staying at the Howard Johnsons Hotel in Vancover Canada. I will never stay there again. When I arrived it appears that the front desk could care less about me . It took long to check in and the front desk clerk was not sure if they had parking for me. When I ask if they... More

The rooms are small, small for the price, not even a small fridge in the room and feels like fort knox with all the security crap, like a prison. The decorations are all too dark. Needs some sunshine.

Good location. Close to shuttle lines only a 15 minute walk to BC Place. Close to restaurant. Room was sufficient and quiet.

We stayed at the HoJo for the Women's World Cup Final, and it was the perfect hotel. Only a short walk to the stadium, and there are plenty of great restaurants nearby. We rented bikes around Stanley Park, and visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge (both Highly recommended). The bus to Stanley Park was close to the hotel, and the pickup... More

I was traveling with my 2 little girls. Upon arrival I noticed drug and sex shops. Then once we got into the rooms I was not impressed. We did not end up staying here. As I had a sick daughter, and this place was not at all suitable. I was too scared to walk outside with my girls. The rooms... More

Dear KerrylS, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not like our location and rooms. We cater to more budget consious clients, and no, our room rates are not the same as Four Seasons Hotel. We are located in entertainment district and we are heritage building, therefore the size of our rooms are definitely not... More
