“I'd Book Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites Any Place They Are”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2009

We received a warm welcome at the desk even though our ship came in early in the morning. We were given a high floor as I had requested. The suite was lovely--spaciaous, well-appointed (even to the Q-tips), had a great balcony and view, and was very comfortable. It was serviced well. The concierge helped us with our tours, maps, etc. On the last day we were both sick. When the housekeeper came to the door, I said we would pass, and she insisted that she at least stock us with additional coffee, tea, and accompaniments. The staff took a personal interest in guests. It was a great stay. This hotel is in a perfect location--3 blocks from Sunset Beach, and amid a plethora of great international restaurants and seafood houses. Terrific!

This is the second time that I have stayed at this hotel in the last 8 months and it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The rooms are not the best, but the beds are comfy and the rooms are very clean. If you are lucky enough you can get a room that has an awesome view of the ocean. The best part of this hotel is that you are incredibly close to the seawall and English Bay. If you run, this is awesome news. There are countless choices for food and shopping all within a 5 minute walk.

The hotel does have a business centre which is nice for checking email and printing documents.

The pool is nice. Very clean and well maintained.

I will definitely stay here again for business.

I had reserved a suite with a jacuzzi tub for our anniversary evening. Not staying here before I had looked on their website and viewed the picture for the room we were to stay in. Unfortunately they had only one picture which was that of the tub. It was nicely remodeled with beautfiul tile and you could see the view from the picture. Wow were we suprised when we arrived. Everything was horribly outdated and looked unclean. The bathroom was so small you could barely move. The curtains and comforter were horribly ugly and looked like they haven't been changed since the 70s. The state of the furniture was used and old. I was very dissapointed as we had paid 300 dollars for this room. It was not lovely I would never recommend this for anyone else, regardless of the convenience of location. And with some of the amenities, they did have wi-fi which barely worked and was sporadic, the pool was on the very bottom floor and not pleasant, the parking was easily accessable but cost us 18 dollars a night which was way too expensive, and when we called for a bottle opener it took all night for them to get it right to send someone up for it. We almost had to go to the front desk to find one.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this clean hotel, largely owing to the awesome location and friendly! We didn't try any of the hotel food because West End had so much to offer just steps from the hotel or along Robson, Davie or any one of the streets nearby.

We were on the 33rd floor (premium king) - the room was spacious and quiet; we loved it because we were the only guests in our corner (I guess we were between housekeeping/staff areas but no problem at all re: noise, esp. at night). The room was incredibly clean and had a large balcony with amazing views of Stanley Park, English Bay and even Coal Harbor. The bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of bathroom amenities.

The gym is on the 4th floor, I think, with two floors (cardio and some machines above, overlooking the weight room and racquet ball below). Great, easy access to do some indoor exercise if you're not walking or renting a bike outdoors. The various bus stops across the street and nearby can take you around town or to connect to SkyTrain, etc. We didn't rent a car and just walked - how could you not? - or used their public transportation with its easy rides and connections to downtown, Granville Island, etc.

We have absolutely no complaints about this hotel, their staff or service. We'd stay here again for sure and ask for the same room (smile).

Once inside this hotel, it has most things that you need from a holiday hotel - bar, restaurant, free wi-fi, pool etc - the hotel rooms are somewhat old and dated.

Whilst the hotel is situated within reasonable walking distance distance of the main centre of Vancouver (30 mins walk) and the False Creek area (15 mins walk), Denman Street is not somewhere that I would recommend single travellers being alone in at night.

After leaving Victoria. we added one more kid to our group and headed by ferry to Vancouver.
The Coast Plaza is very well located for family travel. Turn right on Denman and you are in Stanley Park. Turn left and you are on the English Bay beach. We even went swimming and slide in the Pacific, the weather was gorgeous.
We had a large suite on the 33 rd floor: what a view!. Too bad we had to leave before the fireworks on Wednesdays.
2 rooms, a kitchen, a large living room, a small dining room. Plenty of space for the 6 of us. We had no problem with the portable AC.
As mentionned in other posts, the decor, especially the kitchen, is dated but the place is very clean.
The beds were not as confortable than in Victoria and there was a bit more noise ( from the street instead of the seagulls ) but we slept well .
We had a few nice attentions: chocolates and a turn down service at night, gifts for the kids.I think you can also borrow rackets and stuff for the beach.
The staff was very nice and helpful. Through the concierge, you can obtain rebate coupons for certain attractions.
If you have kids, the Vancouver Aquarium is a must see and you can walk there from the hotel. Other fun places are Playland , the Science center and the Burnaby village ( you will need a car )
We used the kitchen every day.
WiFi Internet is free and works well
There is a parking and a pool. Also the hotel connects to a mall and there is another supermarket on Denman and Robson.

The neighborhood is trendy with a tons of restaurants on Denman ( Malaysian, Mongolian BBQ, Sushi, Fish and Chips, Korean, French and so on ...) It is also a residential area which makes up for a nice vibe

If you go, I recommend you to look at the hotel Web site, which offers different packages.
Ours included 25$ a day food credit, free parking and gifts .
We did not try the 2 restaurants at the hotel

On a more personnal note, we appreciated that the Coast Plaza Hotel sponsors a young springboard diver from Vancouver, as two of my kids and myself are divers also

I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks at the beginning of August 2008, as mentioned on a few of the other reviews it can be argued that the rooms could be considered slightly dated, however the rooms are extremely clean and well kept and the decor of the rooms can easily be looked over because of this.

The hotel is in a magnificent location on Denman street near English Bay. This is one of the most trendy and happening places in vancouver and the restaurant scene just outside the hotels front door is very diverse, with cuisine from Greece, Malaysia and Canada available (I personally recommend the Raincity Grill.)

The staff in the hotel are amazingly friendly and efficient, I arrived from the airport around 1pm, fully aware that check-in was not available until 3pm, the staff apologized for this and offered me free drinks in the hotel bar!! Throughout my trip I had assistance planning excursions to Victoria and Whistler and a bus to seattle which was organised swiflty and professionaly by the hotel concierge.

I had the pleasure of staying in a superior suite which was the largest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Although I didn't use the kitchen it was well equipped and large, for hotel standards, and would be a huge advantage if anyone was considering self catering on their holiday. Adjacent to the Denman Place Mall, it is easy enough to have a quick trip to the supermarket or pharmacy to get anything you may need

All in all this was a fantastic hotel in a fantastic location in vancouver, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
