This hotel is straight up from the cruise ship terminal...About 12 blocks..It was in a run down neighbourhood. Many empty store fronts. The room was very small, with a window overlooking the a/c between sections of the building. Staff was average. Not worth what they charged...

The nightclub downstairs was not so much a problem as all the kids the hanging outside until 4 in the morning!. We put the AC on high to drown them out. A few drinks helped too. We were on the third floor so earplugs were a must. When we booked in the front desk was short with me because I... More

When you hear the name Howard Johnson, you expect a mid-level hotel similar to a Best Western but that was NOT the case at the HOJO in Vancouver. We booked a couple of rooms for a bachelorette weekend and the conditions of the room were so bad we left within 10 minutes of getting there. First off, when we arrived... More

Comfortable, clean, older style hotel, well-situated downtown. Really helpful staff (Andra) allowed us to book in hours before regular book in time. Handy to everything especially public transport. Would stay here again.

Let me begin with the Good. This hotel was clean. The Bad is a very long list highlighted with the following: 1. The rooms are the size of walk in closets. 2. The furnishings were from the mid 70's. 3. The place is under construction. 4. Does not meet the Howard Johnson standards by a long shot. Think motel 6... More

This hotel is clean and perfectly located in downtown Vancouver. It won't win any awards for being stylish, but looks like they are about to refurbish in the near future. I have stayed here a few times, you really can't beat the price for the location, especially in the low season. The restaurant/bar on site is good too. It can... More

We checked in at 8pm and were given a 1st floor room facing Granville st across from the elevators. I was abit worried about noise in the hallway and the bar underneath our room but it was not a issue. Not big rooms but comfy bed, table and chairs, coffeepot and nice bathroom. Room was very clean. The noise from... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. I recently stayed there for 5 nights and then again for a separate 2 nights. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. The receptionist staff, Andra, Richard, and Adam are in particular, genuinely concerned about the guests and want to help the guests get the room they want. They help... More

Arrived at the hotel on busy Friday afternoon, only to find out that I booked for wrong date! Week later! I had my wife and child with me and was not really sure what to do, hotel was sold out for that night. Front desk was trying to help me and called around other hotels, but they were all out... More

The room had vintage decor but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom has had an excellent makeover & was very clean with lots of clean towels provided. Too much air fresher used in the room. The HJ is a gem in the heart of downtown Vancouver and is close to everything; but be warned, it is in an area that... More
