Dining Hall was great. From steak to fish. The quality way, way above price. I used a dorm room, very clean, and new in a concrete building 8th floor. Lounge with view of Fraser River, see for miles. Elevators good, laundry on ground. Everything top notch. Also townhouses and such within the complex. Parking good, and cheap. University right there,... More

We appreciate you taking the time to submit this wonderful review and for including personal photos from your stay. I’m happy that you found the dorm room clean and enjoyed the views and the amenities. The Residence Dining Hall really is a great perk of staying at SFU Conference & Guest Accommodations and the prices can't be beat! If you... More

We've stayed here three times and enjoyed each stay. Book far in advance because it fills up quickly. Necessities are available close by, but restaurants are hit and miss. Rooms give you a "residence" feel, but are very functional. The view is great!

Whenever we are in the Burnaby area, this is our hotel of choice for a number of reasons. It is well-priced, clean, quiet, well set-up with great views of either the mountains or the city. As well, we can go for a stroll on some lovely trails nearby. If you want a hotel with tons of amenities, this is not... More

Being situated on the top floor of a university residence is certainly a different experience to almost every other hotel. The views across Vancouver is special; the corner room I stayed in is roomy; facilities really good at the price. I stayed a week and the room service staff went to a lot of trouble to accommodate my every whim.... More

I like here because of these things: 1- the prices are reasonable. 2- you can cook by yourself. 3-the area is beautiful. 4-parking is available and just 5$ per night. 5-it is 25 min to Vancouver city. 6- it was new and clean.

I spent here almost a week and the room service was good. There is a big tv in the room, fridge and alarm. The bed size was ok and the internet was super fast. To improve the hotel they should have air conditioner in the room because it was a little bit warm.

Have stayed at the Simon Hotel twice now. It is in a perfect location to visit our daughter who is studying as an international student at SFU. As our daughter is a resident in the student dorms we were given a discount. I did however still find it quite expensive for the services provided. No pool, exercise room etc. I... More

It is unusual for a hotel to be situated inside a college campus but the Simon Hotel on the top floor of the Shadbolt House dormitory is just that. I arrived late in the evening to watch a performance my daughter was in the next day. The SFU campus is a large concrete megastructure by Arthur Erickson set atop a... More

My husband, son and I stayed at the Simon Hotel over the Thanksgiving holiday; my son is applying to SFU and we had interviews and tours scheduled on campus.
