“It serves the purpose”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

It is clean, relatively spacious (but pokey bathrooms) and conveniently located beside the park (but not much else). Think basic and white and linoleum. Really perfect for your inner cheap spartan. But its not "nice". There is nothing that will excite you about Times Square.

Cons: The entrance feels like you are trying to get into some kind of gambling den. Apparently the lane side is quieter but I was woken by an industrial sized garbage truck at 7:30 am

So if you are planning to be out and about all day and looking for a clean place to sleep and a small kitchen for breakfast or an easy family meal ... ok. If you are looking for something special or romantic... you will feel like you are at a motel 8.

We stayed over Christmas and had a very relaxing time at TSS. Being able to put th fire on and set the tv to Christmas music made a warm homey atmosphere! We went on several long walks through Stanley Park and along the seawall which made the visit even more complet. Thanks to all the TSS staff!

We had 8 family members meet in Vancouver for Christmas 2012. We had 4 of the standard 1 bedroom suites. Everyone at Times Square was very helpful and worked to get all of our suites on the same floor which was very convenient. The rooms are very nice and spacious. We had some meals in using the well equipped kitchens. We had Christmas morning in one of the suites. The fireplaces in the suites give them a nice cozy feel. Times Square is well located, lots of great restaurants, shopping and easy access to Stanley Park for walking and site seeing in the surrounding areas. I highly recommend Times Square Suites and look forward to returning.

Spent one night with my family of five at downtown vancouver, and this was closest hotel to Stanley Park that could accommodate my family of five at a reasonable price. My initial impression was not good. Hotel was small (very small) with no lounge. It has small office right by the gated parking lot where check-in is done. Once I got over this initial impression, everything was surprisingly good. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. Room was very nice with large space, full kitchen with dishes and utensils, round dining table with four chairs, TV's in both living room and bedroom, free wi-fi, and comfortable bed. It even had extra smal bedroom that had just one single bed for one of my older children. Location can't be beat. It is in the midst of Robson St next to safeway for groceries and walking distance from Stanley Park. In fact, not wasting space on lounge with check-in area was a plus, since they were able to use that space for ample parking area and large room. Small size of hotel made it very personable with staff able remember the guest by their faces. After check out, they allowed us to drive through Stanley Park and come back to the hotel just to park our car so that we can have lunch and explore the downtown before heading out to our next destination. Overall great experience.


Pro: Reasonable price, friendly helpful staff, large ample gated parking, large room, great accommodation in the room, full kitchen, fast wi-fi, and most of all, great location.

Con: No ground floor lounge, uses old physical metal keys for rooms and elevator (which is quaint but slightly inconvenient)

Tip: We went to Grouse Mountain and bought "Peak of Christmas" family ticket for $79.95 before tax which is great bargain since it includes skyride for family of four. I think skyride alone cost about $50 for one adult.

We arrived at 12:45, (night)after 28 hours door to door travel, and walking into Times Square Suites, was a pleasure, we were directed to our room, and advised to settle paperwork in the morning. The two bedroom apartment was, warm, clean and the beds very comfortable, the apartment was fully equipped, including extra towels, extra pillows and bedding. After waking up to snow falling on morning one, and settling the paperwork staff could not be more helpful, with maps, directions etc.
Our party consists of two adults, and two teens (15yo 18yo) Times Square Suites, is big enough to have together time and well located that the teens can venture out on their own to explore, shops and Stanly park, restaurants are at your door step

I have nothing but good things to say about Times Square. Very comfortable rooms. The full kitchens and in-suite washer/dryer makes staying there with your family so much easier. Within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. The staff was very friendly and greeted us by name. Perfect place for a short or long term stay!

I stayed here for two months - October and November. My suite had everything I needed to be comfortable. The location is wonderful. Every convenience possible within one block. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I will definitely be staying here again. As much as it is great to go home I was sorry to leave.
