“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The good reviews of this hotel are true.
Excellently managed with the Most attentive staff.
Breakfast includes fresh orange juice and a limitted but excellent selection of fruits, salmon, bagels breads, waffles and a few hot items.
Eat in the evenings at the hotels restaurant or the excellent concierge will organise any level of eating you may ask for as well as organising anything at all - all with exceptional charm.
This hotel really is a gem.
The one potential issue might be the building works next door - we were on the other side so I don't know- but worth asking for a room on the quiet side in case!
We'll definitely be back.

This is my second time @ L'Hermitage Hotel and I do recommend this hotel. It was everything perfect. The Service is just excelent. The Location is awsome., Although there is a big constrution just in front of the Hotel. But for me it was not a problem because my room was at the back.

The cos was only the pillow that was not soft at all.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite before the Christmas holiday and everything about our stay in this lovely hotel was practically perfect. The location was convenient to a variety of attractions, the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were the best ever in a hotel, and the suite was comfortable, clean, we'll fitted, and beautiful. We also enjoyed the outside rooftop hot tub and indoor gym. We had such an enjoyable time that it was difficult to leave, but we definitely plan to go back in the future.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our suite on the back - it was very quiet.

Our experience at L'Hermitage was fantastic! It started with Raymond at the front desk- he was friendly/entertaining/informative. He also upgraded us free of charge which is always nice/appreciated. Our bags were waiting in our room when we got back from our day out in the city (we had arrived prior to the check-in time). The water pressure was good and we had plenty of hot water. The towels and sheets were clean which is a must for this frequent traveler. The room had a nice fireplace, stainless steel appliances and a sitting room. Vancouver is a great city to walk and the hotel is centerally located. There is a reason this hotel is #1 on TripAdvisor.

My husband and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary with a stay at L'Hermitage Hotel in Vancouver, B.C. The location was walking distance from most of the sites we wanted to visit. The staff was unfailingly polite, professional, and helpful. On arrival, we found a note and bottle of wine in our room from the manager, in honor of our anniversary. Raymond Wong, the concierge, gave us great advice about seeing the city and dining in area restaurants. He went to bat for us, securing a refund after delays in the Vancouver Trolley system caused us to wait almost two hours for the first stop of the day. We will definitely return to this lovely boutique hotel.

This hotel was such a wonderful surprise for us. We walked from the cruise ship with suitcase in tow for a few days stay in Vancouver. We booked based on reviews and proximity to downtown and the cruise port. All I can say is WOW!!!! This is such a wonderful hotel at every level. The rooms and public rooms are beautiful and comfortable. I am the original Princess and the Pea type of person when it comes to beds. All I can say is Fabulous!!! The staff is absolutely amazing. Be sure to use the expertise of the concierge. They really know their stuff and are very helpful and kind. This is a five star hotel with such a warm feeling. We loved it and would not only recommend to our friends but would stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I did not use the spa facilities so I have no comment on them. I think all rooms would be just wond...

First time staying at L'Hermitage. The hotel went far beyond our expectations on service, accommodations, and location! The level of service was far better than any Ritz or Four Seasons we have ever stayed in! We had our kids with us and the staff made us all feel welcome attending to our every need. Our one bedroom suite was perfect and very convenient with kitchen. We had fun swimming in the heated outdoor pool and spa. Great restaurants all within walking distance and market around the corner. Really a wonderful experience.
