Hotels in Vancouver are out of control expensive, so we figured when we found something at a semi-reasonable price it wouldn't be great. The location was excellent- we walked to Granville Island, we were a 5 minute drive away from Kits, we walked down to Yaletown and shopping. Free wi-fi, no secure parking. A/C worked well! Train to airport is... More

I stayed at the Howard Johnson Hotel in downtown Vancouver with 3 friends for a girls vacation. The staff was very unfriendly when we arrived, the rooms were very small, outdated, and dirty. That the parking lot is very small and by the time we checked in there were no parking spots left, leaving us to park and then walk... More

This hotel left me a little disappointed. Not the best area to stay if your on your own or with young family! Granville can be noisy till all hours with typical city happenings on the doorstep. The room was a little small and stuffy and the hotel itself was in need of an update. Staff were helpful and polite. If... More

This hotel is average quality, however, the hotel staff is extremely helpful with your needs & suggestions/directions to sightseeing, restaurant recommendations, etc. And, the location is excellent for accessing just about anything you need to get to, as well as public transportation if you need it.

If you're going to have a hotel on a main road, the least you can do is have enough parking for all your guests and not make then have to park 5 blocks away at a mall. If you don't have a car, you're good, if you have one you're screwed! When checking us in or answering our questions about... More

The hotel is in what they call the "entertainment area" of the city. Not the best area, especially if you're traveling with children. Just a few blocks away, lots of upscale shops and eating establishments, all within walking distance. Be sure to buy a ticket for the Hop On, Hop Off bus, which takes you all over the city. Staff...

Along with being charged a daily parking fee of 19 CAD plus GST, which is the apparent norm at most if not all hotels in Vancouver downtown, in a cramped lot that was only accessible through a cramped city alleyway, I have a few reasons to regret the choice of my 7-day hotel stay at the Howard Johnson Hotel Vancouver...
