During our trip to the west coast, we spent 3 nights at this hotel. Service from the staff was pretty good and they were friendly. Attached restaurant served average food but again staff were friendly. Our room was in a corner of the hotel with no views and a very small window covered over 1/2 with an in window air... More

I was impressed with the friendliness of the gentleman on duty when I arrived. My flight arrived early in the morning so I went to the hotel to see about checking in even though their check-in was not until 3pm. He said he had nothing available right then but as soon as he did, he would let me know. At... More

After a really long flight from Perth, I arrived at the Howard Johnson at 10pm. As I was checking in the lady behind the desk was incredibly rude and has no people skills whatsoever. I made my way up to my room, which was on the first floor. The corridors, bedroom and stairwell all reaked. My room was right across... More

This is a very typical HoJo hotel. The rooms are quite small and so are the bathrooms. The bedding was old but clean and bed small but comfortable. Bathroom was needing an update and a little dirty.,check in was fast and easy. The location is in a busy part of town with lots happening at night. Some good shopping close... More

Dear Geoff Dale, Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us. We are 100 year old heritage building and size of the rooms is something that we can't do much about. This is the reason why we mostly have rooms with 1 bed. Glad to hear you enjoyed our location. Thank you for your business. More

I was leery to stay here given mixed reviews that seem to be either terrible or amazing. It is no where in between it is awful and I will ever stay there again. At first check in was a joke. The man who was working the front desk has poor communication skills and was condescending when we finally deciphered what... More

We stayed at the Howard with friends for 2 nights before joining a Holland America tour, the room was fairly small but perfectly adequate for two people with luggage. The room was very clean as was the bathroom and although the first night was a little noisy we expected this given the location and the fact that it was a... More

This is a prefect hotel if you are looking for a central accommodation in Vancouver. Nice rooms, cozy adjoining restaurant and friendly staff. We stay occasionally a night when going for a concert downtown and we always have a pleasant experience.
