“Great Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2008

I was not sure about this hotel even after reading the reviews here, but I thought I'd take a chance and book it anyway. It was a great surprise. When we first arrived, the street was bombarded with military vehicles and personnel and we were prevented from going down the street that the hotel was located on. We called the hotel and they said that they were still open and that the side of the street the hotel was on was open. We gave it a chance and were successful. Next challenge was getting into the underground parking. It was hard to see, but we finally saw the part where it said that hotel guests checking in had to dial for security to open the garage door. Parking was not a problem as there was always enough space. Parking was only $10 a day, I thought it would cost us $25 a day. They also posts signs letting you know that vehicle break-ins are a common problem in Vancouver, so we made sure that we took all valuables with us. Check-in was very easy and we were in our room within minutes. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfy. We chose to drive around the city and surprisingly we were a few blocks from Robson Street. It was a madhouse on Robson with all the vehicles and pedestrians. On top of that there was construction going on so traffice was a real pain. We decided to do the Big Bus tour and very conveniently, one of the stops is right in front of the hotel, so we just took the tour and hopped on and off the bus whenever we felt like exploring one of the 20 tour stops. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Georgian and would stay there again if were in Vancouver again.

It is easy to get the big things right. The difference between a great place and a so-so place are the little details. The Georgian Court does the details.

After searching online for a while, we finally setteled on the Georgian Court for our Vancouver stay. It was a little more pricy than other downtown hotels, but rated highly on this site. I now know why.

First off, the location is very good. It was an easy walk to Yaletown, Robson Street, Gastown, China Town, and stations for the light rail and the Aquabus. We had a car, but never used it. A car would only be needed for Stanley Park or the attractions off of the downtown peninsula.

The facility was very nice. They did all of the little details right: robes, tourism information, double sheets, extra pillows and towels, coffee/tea bar, extra phones, etc. The room was also very clean, very quiet, and in the morning, very dark.

The staff was also first class. There was never a wait at the front desk. They were helpful with directions and recommendations. And most impressive, when their was a problem with getting the room safe open, they were very responsive and dedicated in fixing the problem when they could have easily dismissed us and told us that we had to wait for the technician hours later. The extra effort and care was very impressive.

This place is worth the little extra expense!

  • Liked — The staff, location, and perfect quiet.
  • Disliked — Having to pay to park.

Very well appointed rooms, super friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are fairly quiet and the location is great. Some of the reviews here claim the area is sketchy. This is true of the outlying areas, but if you stick to Robson you'll be fine. Otherwise, take a cab. They are not expensive in Vancouver.

Stayed at this hotel for business........Your never really sure when it comes to private hotels ( not the regular chains ) but this was not bad at all. Front desk was very polite, helpful and courteous at all times as was the staff in the attached restaurant. Rooms were very clean and beds / linens were surprisingly good. I had excellent sleeps. Bath products are by Aveda which is a nice touch.......Two free bottles of water in room replenished daily......another nice touch not having to pay $4.00 a bottle like some other hotels. We used a meeting room for one day which was a good facility plus they provided excellent service for breaks which included soft drinks; coffee etc., with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and a bunch of other things........Very good..The price is cheaper than some of the other downtown hotels by a fairly wide margin.......The only thing that could use some attention I thought was the shower would never get nice and hot only warm almost hitting hot ( no big deal ) and the pressure was very weak. If you are thinking about trying it out I would definately give it a shot. The Shark Club right around the corner in the Sandman is a good place to watch a hockey game etc., as it is a Sports Pub.

Very comfortable, clean and pleasant room. Staff went above and beyond for our visit. Really loved the temperature control in the room,especially important to the disabled, it was so accurate.

Our last hotel on tour and perhaps we were a little tired because the hotel really didn't stand out compared to others we had stayed in throughout the Rockies. Room was comfortable and clean but a little tired itself. In a handy part of Vancouver if you enjoy walking. Places like Robson Street for shopping are quite close but be careful not to take a wrong turn because some of the streets can be a little scary. The hotel foyer is quite small although staff were friendly and there is a bar/bistro which from memory you enter from the foyer where we relaxed and unwound from our exploring. Staff were always happy to get taxis for us when we wanted to go further afield.

  • Liked — Convenience to tourist spots
  • Disliked — Just a bit tired looking
