Had a very pleasant stay of 5 nights. As others have said the staff are so friendly and helpful, rooms are basic but clean. Kudos to the housekeeping staff. Bed was as comfortable as any 4-5 star hotel. Truly enjoyed dinner in the restaurant. As for the area, I felt quite safe as a single woman, and the ample parking... More

My stay at The Waldorf was great! rooms were tidy and clean and I also had a pleasant sleep. The room service was good and I especially liked the Tiki bar, it's a pretty chill place to go to! it is even better if you know the place around the hotel.

Girlfriend and I stayed at the Waldorf for one night. Service was superb, rooms better then we expected! The restaurant downstairs was good too. Quick drive to downtown, really nothing bad about it. We will definitely stay there when we return to Vancouver!! Gerard Bram, Portland

To understand the Waldorf you need to know the area and growth of condo developments in the city. It's on the ugly strip of Hastings, currently going thru modernization as the city is forced to grow into undesirable areas. So the owners have no incentive, my opinion, to make financial improvements, only pay the bills until the land value coughs... More

The two women at reception were super nice and helpful, but that's really all I can say that was good about the Waldorf. The area is not good. The first woman that helped us outright said not to walk around. There is off street parking in a lot next to the hotel and we were assured it was safe due... More

Absolutely the worst hotel experience ever. They charged us $$180 for a deluxe room, when we arrived the gal at the front desk moved us to a different room at $99/night because they were having a band playing that night and the room we booked was directly over the stage. Shady area of the city, a fellow was shooting up... More

Yes the neighborhood is not the best but it was a convenient location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you have a lot of luggage: the rooms are on the 2nd floor with stairs leading to it, and no elevator. This was not a big issue for us. If you get there by car, the parking is not... More

Hotel was good value for money rooms recently refurbished. Friendly reception staff.location a bit far from the city centre but a bus ride is only 10 minutes away. One of the better budget hotels with nice modern flat screen tvs and high speed internet connection

My friend and I took a road trip from Calgary down south to Idaho, Oregon, up through Washington and back over to Calgary through BC. We stayed at a number of small motels, looking for basics. We are not picky travelers AT ALL. Please keep in mind I have never in my well travelled life ever had an experience so... More

My daughter and I chose to stay at a low price hotel so we could spend our money elsewhere. Hotel prices in Vancouver were sky high and we saved close to 70 percent off the price of a slightly better hotel. If your doing a quick trip and you just need a place to rest your head and you are... More
