“Very comfortable stay and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were based in Vancouver for a couple of days. This hotel has a great location on Granville Island which is fairly central with good communications and surrounded by slightly alternative shops, workshops etc.

The views over the harbour are wonderful. The hotel itself was very comfortable, the staff were helpful and the rooms well appointed.

We liked it so much that we returned to it on the last night of our vacation before returning to Britain, and despite arriving after midnight the staff managed to rustle up fresh milk (why do all hotels in Canada seem to put creamer in the room) for our tea, organise a taxi for the next day etc.

All in all a great stay.

Regular YVR visitor. Hotel is in a super location to give you a feel for life in Vancouver. Eclectic shops and dinning at your doorstep. Energetic vibe from mix of tourists and locals. Great area for jogging, AquaBus to downtown...oh and Lee's donuts. :-) Hotel Staff have a personality instead of an attitude. Affordable parking at the GIH vs ridiculous downtown hotel parking rates.

I love the Granville Island Hotel. I stay here whenever I'm in Vancouver. So convenient to the city and lots to do on Granville Is. Rooms are cozy and clean. Just wish the parking was better. Looking forward to returning.

Always like to come back to Vancouver and if I can, I stay @ the Granville Island Hotel, location is great, rooms are clean and staff friendly, this time I was too late to eat at the Restaurant, but during my last visit I did enjoyed the meals as well - thanks!

We really enjoyed our mini holiday at the Granville Island Hotel. The location is perfect. Staff were helpful and friendly and rooms were spacious and clean. We enjoyed our breakfasts in the Dockside Restaurant especially the French Toast Brioche. The weather was perfect for drinks outside in their lounge with the gorgeous views.

Incredible views, clean and comfortable facilities, friendly staff and a great location. My travel to Vancouver is always for business, and the Granville Island Hotel allows me a little bit of serenity and relaxation during a hectic business trip. Close enough to downtown Vancouver, but just being on Granville Island feels like a vacation in itself. I stay at the Granville Island Hotel every time I visit Vancouver!

This hotel is a gem. Gorgeous rooms with superior finishings, king bed with wonderful linens & great views! Located right on the Island just down the road from the market and wonderful shops. The food at the hotel is amazing. I am in love with this place and will definitely be back.
