“Empire Hotel in Downtown Vancouver.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Stayed here, spur of the moment, when my son's apartment filled up with all my kids. No room left for Dad!! So did a quick search, and Empire was running a special, and was 3 blocks away! Staff was helpful and friendly. Everything was serviceable, and the room was clean!
The best thing about this hotel was the view. There was no highrises to block the view. We got a city-view room, and it was spectacular! Stayed on the 20th, and the 30th floor for a night each. The first night, it was windy, and the old patio door rattled, but I was so tired, didn't bother me.

Room Tip: Want a city, or a harbour/ocean view??

This is a good hotel for doing things downtown. The hotel is old and the rooms are tired looking...but for the price you can overlook a few things like that. The rooms are bright, the bed are comfortable and the higher rooms have great views of the city. You must go upstairs and enjoy a beverage in the bar....it rotates....80 minutes to do a full rotation and the view is stunning in every direction.....go in the evening and watch the sunset.

Room Tip: ask for a high level room to enjoy the views

Booked my 4 nights already in November 2012: booking.com offered a 4 night stay for 330 CAD dollars. Hotel was easy to reach from the airport by public transport. Check in went fine, and I was given a room on the 35th floor with a breath taking view. The evolving bar/restaurant on floor 42 is highly recommended for a drink for beautiful views over the city , especially when the sun sets. The location of the hotel is perfect: so many shops and restaurants around the hotel. The hotel is also very close to Stanley Park and the Coal Harbour. Room was more than ok , size was perfect and it was kept very clean. I am a fan of this hotel :-)

I liked this hotel. It is conveniently located. The shops and restaurants are nearby, and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. There are tours directly in the lobby where the bus picks you up from. The rooms are not ultra modern, but are clean, and the view from the balcony is beautiful, especially at sunset when the sky turns red. Another plus is the masseuse which is right in the lobby, and the massages are excellent!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony, but I think they all have balconies.

I stayed here for 3 nights, its right on Robson street. Shopping area is right outside you're hotel down the street. A 10 min walk to Canada place, couple blocks from a Tim Horton. No breakfast. Okey size room. there is no lounge in the lobby, very tiny check in counter. Very friendly staff, each room has a balcony with the view of the City of Vancouver, and you also got the revolving cloud 9 restaurant at the top floor. Would recommend this hotel

I stayed here twice in a 3 week span. The location is excellent as it is close to Stanley Park and the ocean front walk. Shopping street starts just a few blocks away. The front desk staff are not rude, but very cold and quick to move you on. No pleasantries, no welcome, just here is you key card and elevators over there. Both times I wondered just how clean the room really was, as there were signs of a very quick make over. Hair in shower area, dust on table, and a slipper under the bed!

Room Tip: rooms on north/west/south have the views. higher floors are quieter as you are above the traffic
