“Excellent place and great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

My boyfriend and I (21 and 22) stayed with my parents in a 2 bedroom apartment. It wasn't a huge apartment, but given the location it was very nice. There was enough room for the 4 of us. There are lots of windows which makes the views amazing. Across the street you have access to the athletic club which has cardio machines, free weights, machines, a pool, 2 hot tubs, and 2 saunas. It's not a huge athletic club but it has what you need to get by while on vacation. There are also many restaurants, shops, and clubs nearby. When we were there the weather was in the high 60s and with all the windows open it never got too hot. A few of the days we even had to close the windows because the breeze made it too cold. To give an idea of the quality and prime location, 1 bedroom apartments for sale here were starting at $400,000. So, very nice and comfortable place for up to 4 people in the 2 bedroom apartment.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

We stayed here the last week of May, 2009. The weather was cool enough that we did not have to worry about the whole "no air conditioning" thing, although a ceiling fan in the bedrom would have been a nice addition just to move the air around a bit. This was our first time visiting Vancouver, and the front desk staff was very helpful in providing tips. The Canadian is located withing walking distance of almost everywhere in the downtown area - and we are not great walkers!
Since there is a full kitchen in the rooms, and we planned on eating breakfast in each day, as well as some other meals, staff gave us directions to an IGA within walking distance. A word to the wise, however, don't overbuy because you have to WALK BACK with everything. We purchased a couple of those cloth bags at the store, and aside from husband's whining, it was okay getting it all back! :-) There are tons of places to eat around there for every type of meal. Beware though if you plan to eat breakfast when all the downtown workers are arriving, because they are all eating breakfast also, and you will have quite the wait!!!
Rooms were very clean, staff very attentive and the views were great. There was traffic noise even as high up as we were, but that is to be expected in any downtown venue. I loved eating breakfast each morning in the dining nook and looking out at city and the mountains.
We drove up from Seattle, and although you don't need a car downtown, we were visiting the areas around Vancouver, too. There is parking located under the building, which was very convenient. Just don't forget your keys that let you enter the elevators or stairs from the parking garage.
There is not a fitness area or pool in the building, but as a guest you have access to those facilities at a Sheraton (?) across the street.
Suggested sites to visit - Stanley Park, Lynn Canyon, the drive from Vancouver to Whistler, Shannon Falls, the whole area around Canada Place, Robson Street, and so much more. We were there for a week, and still didn't get to see all we wanted.

This property is more an apartment building than a hotel.

There is a small office next door (attached to the apartment building) which is manned 24/7 with very friendly and helpful staff.

Internet is available, but beware that the cost quoted is in US Dollars, not Canadian Dollars.

Location is fairly central to everything.

As others have noticed, there is no air-con. This means in summer you will need to leave the windows open (no real security risk 26 storeys up). The downside is the local emergency services feel the need to go on an ego trip and use their sirens on empty streets at 4am.

We visited in August and, although the temperature was in the 60's, the room was quite warm when we returned afer a sunny day of sightseeing. They furnish a large fan, but you'd have to be from the south to know it's like a "swamp cooler" and you need to add water to get the full benefit.

Loved having a washer and dryer and plenty of closet space. It's nicely decorated and the bed is comfortable.

The resort doesn't offer any activities at the property, but the resort hosts have lots of suggestions and discounts. We recommend the 2-day narrated trolley ride which gives you a good overview of the city, Granville Market and Stanley Park.

They're already selling souvenirs for the 2010 Olympics.

We stayed here to take in a Canucks game. The location is excellent. Walking distance to the arena as well as superior resatraunts and world class shopping on Robson St. Worldmark has suites on the 22-28th floors so expect awesome views. You'll love the urban, modern feel of this downtown condo.

Excellent location in downtown area, close to major attractions, food markets, restaurants and transport connections. Spectacular views, day and night from windows in19th floor apartment. Stylish and comfortable interior. Exceptionally helpful Wyndam staff in the office during our weeklong stay. Will definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Canadian. The weather was awful, but the view was great - downtown Vancouver, the Art Gallery, etc. Great central location, very comfortable accommodation - will definitely stay here again.
