“Overall a very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Good convenient location. Free parking was a bonus with the rental car as other places charges for parking. Opposite Safeway which was very helpful and close to many eating joints. Very friendly staff. Will definitely recommend.

Stayed at the Robson suites in Vancouver for a couple of days.
Everything about this place is perfect.
The suite had plenty of storage for our bags. It was clean and well presented.
The staff were fantastic and so helpful.
The location was perfect with a Safeway store Starbucks, restaurants, subway, pizza hut within 2 minutes from the suites. Mcdonalds is directly under the building.
Stanley park, shops and many other attractions all within walking distance.
Will definitely stay there again

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom suite in early September. As noted by other reviewers, the location is fantastic - close to shops, restaurants and Stanley Park. The rooms were clean, comfortable and the parking arrangement was very convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful. The layout of the suite, however, was a bit awkward - not much privacy as the person sleeping on the sofa couch in the living room had to go through the main bedroom to access the bathroom. Also the dining table was tight and situated right next to the main entry. Nevertheless, we would definitely stay there again. Great value for a good stay in great location!

Room Tip: Check layout of suites if privacy is a concern.

Thank you very much for taking time to leave your feedback of your visit in September with us. I am glad to hear that you pretty much enjoyed your stay in this location and our suite. Since the hotel is in a "L" shape, the two corners of our one bedroom suites are more suitable for family groups as the washroom is attached in the bedroom. We also do have the one bedroom suites with the bedroom and washroom seperated for the ease of all adult travelers. Please do not hesitate to request for a suite with washroom detached for your next return to us. A big thank you for staying with us from the Robson Suites Team. We hope to see you again in 2013!

We had to make a quick trip to Vancouver with our dog and Robson Suites was the perfect place to stay. Making a reservation by phone was quick and efficient. Arrival was also efficient - fortunately the parking spot in front was empty as it was a very wet day. The dog was treated appropriately by all staff we met. Parking underground was a plus given the weather. The north Robson neighbourhood is always a pleasant adventure with lots of shops but having a full kitchen made it easier as we did not have to go outside for breakfast.

Room Tip: We were on the back side (room 208) at the end of the hall and it was quite, light (even though it w...

I was looking for something a bit different for this trip to Vancouver, including a kitchen if it was possible.

I found the Robson Suites, and know the neighbourhood from staying at other hotels in the area.

This place has the look and feel of an apartment complex, but the Studio suite that I used was great for one or two people.

It was large, it was quiet, had underground parking, and with the Safeway almost across the street, shopping for supplies was convenient as well.

I found the bed to be comfortable and the wireless Internet to be stable and had decent speed.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for a higher end hotel with all the amenities (room service, fitness club, a pool, great view, etc.) then this place is not for you. If you want a good size room that is quiet, in a good location, then consider the Robson Suites.

Thank you very much for leaving a candid review of your recent stay with us. You are definitely correct in stating this hotel is "Not for everyone" as Robson Suites has it all for the travellers basic needs for a clean suite, kitchen, free parking and internet access in a central location of Downtown Vancouver. We unfortunately do not have enough space to offer extra amenities such as fitness facilities and sauna/jacuzzi. Once again, A big thank you from the Robson Suites Team from liking our simple but the best apartment type of hotel in Vancouver.

Very nice. We really our enjoyed our recent stay at the Robson Suites. We were on the top(4th) floor, really liked the high ceilings and hardwood floor in our room. Only blocks from Stanley Park and English Bay Beach. Great selection of restaurants within a 5 minute walk.
Nice kitchen in the suite and nice to have Safeway and Whole Foods just down the block. Price included secure underground parking, a nice bonus in Vancouver. The staff was very nice and very helpful. Excellent, would definitely stay again.

The best thing about this accommodation was its location. Situated in a quiet residential area, it was right next to Robson Street (really nice shopping area) and about a 5 minute walk from Stanley Park. There was also a really well-stocked supermarket about a 1 minute walk away and a great variety of small restaurants/cafes/takeaways. The apartment itself was comfortable and very clean. The kitchen was a decent size and had a great range of utensils and facilities and the bathroom was modern with a powerful shower. The lounge had a sofa and comfy chair and a big TV with good signal and DVD player. The one downside was the bedroom which was a bit on the small size (would have expected a bigger bed for the price we were paying). The room was also very warm and the air conditioning unit was REALLY noisy so we had to have the balcony door open all night which we didn’t particularly want to do. However, the staff were friendly and welcoming and we would certainly stay here again. Make sure you ask about their free downtown shuttle too as we didn’t find out about it until we were leaving!
