“Fabulous hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is an awesome boutique hotel v close to central shopping district, gay district, gas town etc.
The staff are incredibly friendly and warm, and address you by name! the rooms are huge, the bathroom is the size of my flat in the UK. And the facilities are fab - outdoor hot tub and heated pool, decent gym, steam room, etc.
Very much recommended!

We stayed here on April 31, 2012. It was a cloudy day. First we were treated to an open door to our limo, and a bellhop who took our luggage. An attractive hostess checked us in and we were in our rooms within 5 minutes. Our floor had some lounge spaces, and it looked like a nicely appointed area.

Our room was a small suite, for two. Somewhat pugnacious, I carefully inspected the room for cleanliness, and to my satisfaction. I was actually impressed. Not one hair, not one smudge. Still, I lathed the remote control, and other knobs in anti-bacterial wipes, and nothing. No dirt on the cloths. There was construction nearby, but we also enjoyed the patio.

Similarly, after a brief jaunt in the morning we noticed someone had come and tidied our affairs, and cleaned the room again. Once more, everything appeared to be in its place and taken care of; it was exactly what I paid for and expected.

Our visit was a short 2 days at the Hotel, and it was relatively uneventful but the room was perfect. To have made my visit absolutely perfect, I would have enjoyed a complementary paper.

I travel extensively, and always select quality hotels, and without doubt, the service I experienced at L'Hermitage Hotel during our recent 3 day stay in Vancouver was as good (if not better) than I have experienced anywhere in the world. The staff were so friendly & attentive. The hotel is close to quality restaurants, & shopping, but also very self contained.

We definately enjoyed our stay at L``Hermitage Hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was very nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Wìsh we could have used the hot tub and salt water pool however I forgot my swimsuit. Overall this is an excellent hotel and we would look forward to going back.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January and found it to be a brilliant hotel. We were upgraded on arrival to one of their suites, which was a great start! As mentioned in other reviews there is building work taking place opposite the hotel and even though we were on the front this did not really bother us.

Our suite was very nice, probably up there in our top 3 of all time. A good size and very nicely furnished/decorated. We really enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and pool, nothing better than having a soak after a hard day sight seeing!

The hotel is in a really good location, easy walking distance to The Waterfront, Gastown, downtown shopping, and Yaletown. We also took advantage of their free bike hire and went for a ride around Stanley park which was great fun.

The best thing about this hotel is the service you get. From start to finish they could not do enough for you, we were always greeted with a smile and all the staff knew us by name. A big thanks to Raymond and David on the concierge desk who were brilliant and made our stay in Vancouver as good as it could have been.

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.
