Very receptive personnel, well appointed and super-clean rooms and appartments, good views, walk in 2-12 minutes to most downtown sights, shops and attractions. six minutes walking to the Burrard underground stop to Waterfront and Airport. No restaurant, but an excellent Urban fare across the street with prepared food, eat-in space and groceries. Wine and liquor around the corner, plenty of restaurant choices within two blocks. My fourth stay, and my uncontested preference in Vancouver.

I stayed here for my birthday when some friends came into town...we shared a two bedroom apartment. It was great, as we visited in the livingroom before and after going dancing...had some champagne and made some food in the kitchen. It is very central in downtown Vancouver, we use it for personal & business. There is no restaurant in the hotel but its so central you don't need it, everything is at your fingertips.
They have one & two bedrooms....it is Vancouver's little secret. Very affordable too by Vancouver standards.
The parking is a bit confusing...don't do what I did and give your security key back then forget where you parked and get stuck in the parkade and have to call for help. haha...as it locks you in unless you walk all the way out by the gates. But they have parking, so that's a plus.

Room Tip: Choose the Executive -high floors as they are more modern...slightly higher priced but worth it.

Spent a week here for business trip and could not pick any faults during the whole stay. Rooms very spacious and very clean, housekeeping service inlcuding the laundry service. No request was too much for the front desk staff who try to get to know you and are always polite. Kitchens in the apartment/rooms are exceptionally well equipped. Beds very comfy. Only minor item was the shower head was not that powerful.
Main shopping street, Robson Street is only 100yds away and restaurants are everywhere. Fantastic supermarket directly opposite the hotel (Urban Fare) which makes home cooked food for you to take back to your hotel room.
When using the the lift you need to swipe your room key first before pressing the required floor otherwise you will end up going up and down all day.
Would definately return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front as the views at the back are not the most glamorous.

Stayed here for three weeks. Staff very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping service top notch. Had the opportunity of sampling two types of accommodation. Standard with King bed excellent - comfortable furniture and great amenities. Executive with Queen bed - great room with extra space but prefer non leather furniture and carpet in the Standard. Views from both rooms brilliant. Main shopping street from one room and harbour and mountains from the other. Close to all restaurants, shops and attractions.

Room Tip: North facing rooms offer nicer views of the mountains and harbour.

We recently stayed at the Carmana Plaza in Vancouver. There were 5 of us and the two bedroom apartments were plenty big enough. The apartments are well located close to Robson Street and are within walking distance to Gastown etc. They are very clean and tidy and having a fully equipped kitchen is great for breakfasts and even dinner if you don't want to eat out all the time. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again when we next visit Vancouver.

Stayed at the Carmana Plaza in the CARMANA SUITE •One bedroom Suite with 1 queen bed in master bedroom. Excellent suite with a great view from the balcony.
Very clean and quiet. The grocery store(Urban Fare)- is excellent-more than a grocery store- also has meals available. Had breakfast each morning.
Highly recommend staying.....
