The Greenbrier has rather a faded elegance about it - it must have been quite a lovely hotel in earlier days - but it's a little worn around the edges, now. However, rooms have been upgraded with new carpet, paint, bathroom furnishings, etc., and it's a homey and quiet place to stay; and it's VERY good value given the huge... More

We were impressed with the space offered at the Greenbrier. While not the most modern hotel, we couldn't fault the cleanliness and presentation of our room. It was also surprisingly quiet given its location. We only stayed overnight as we were en-route to our next destination but the suite would have definitely been comfortable for a much longer stay. It's... More

If you are looking for something not too expensive in downtown, that's a good choiche. The hotel is neither elegant or beautiful, but the ratio quality price is high. I also had a kitchen in my room, this can help you to save more money, being able to cook your own food.

Very good value. Clean, super friendly staff, right in the middle of everything in a very safe and walkable neighbourhood. I stayed at the bacck of the building and it was extremely quiet. Although it wasn't very new, it was everything I needed, and more.

We booked this hotel through Hotwire's "secret hot rate hotels" option for $46.72/night plus taxes. We stayed for a week which came to $403.24 after taxes - pretty reasonable for a "room" which included a living room with a pull out couch, bedroom, kitchen with a stove and fridge and washroom. The check in staff were all friendly and accommodating.... More

We stayed here a couple weeks ago for a work Christmas party downtown Vancouver, just for 1 night. This place is fine if its a short stay, we got it cheap through hotwire so weren't expecting much... Cons -called the day before and asked what the parking rate was and was told $10. When I checked in they said it... More

Disappointing, since found via Air B&B and NOT described as a Hotel of apartments, which it is, and rather a basic one at that. Room fine (has a sitting room and kitchen - use not encouraged), breakfast basic ‘continental’. Not a room one would want to relax in - no view, rather dark. Location was OK - within a walk... More

If you are looking for a budget hotel that is within walking distance to many of Vancouver's attractions then Greenbrier is for you. Great location. I had a suite with a kitchenette but it lacks the basic necessities. The staff did find me a kettle so I could make tea. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Front rooms are noisy,... More

This is a rather shabby suite hotel in the West End of Vancouver. The location is great-on a main commercial street with shops and restaurants and only a short 10 minute walk to Stanley Park. However, one wants to spend as little time as possible in the suite. We were on the ground floor-a good thing as there are no... More
