We stayed two nights. The staff could not have been better. Nice little restaurant right in the hotel. Food is good and the prices are reasonable. During my trip, I injured my leg. They leant me a wheelchair at no charge for my entire stay. Very clean with nice rooms. Also it is a great location. Many restaurants, stores, and... More

We visited Vancouver with a tour group three years ago and stayed here. Quick to make reservations there before our recent return to Vancouver because of its prime location in a very popular part of town. It is a block from English Bay with its beach and especially access to Stanley Park where we spent more time than on our... More

From our arrival, early at 11 am, when our room was ready to our departure a week later we were very happy with this hotel. It is in perfect position for English Bay but still close to all downtown attractions. Arriving from a cruise it was only a short taxi drive from the terminal. There are numerous eating places nearby... More

We stayed in this hotel last summer and were very impressed so we booked it again this summer. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. We arrived early and were able to check in at noon and park the car. Great location in English Bay. Room was very clean, comfortable king size bed. Will return in the future.

My first time in West Vancouver (from CA) so I wasn’t sure what to expect but the hotel was comfortable and reasonable for being located right by the beach. The bar downstairs was pretty cool and seemed to be “the Spot” to be at for the Super bowl…GO BRONCOS! We didn’t stay much at the hotel because we were out... More

This hotel is a waste of time to stay at. We stopped there one night, got put in possible one of the oldest rooms there with a very outdated a/c unit that didn't work. We had to ask 4 times for them to check on it. When they had realized that it didn't work they told us that all the... More

The hotel is in a funky, eclectic part of town. Nice rooms, good pub attached to the hotel, 20 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the cruise port. We walked around the hotel neighborhood - lots of small, local restaurants to choose from, great park to walk around, beach area super close, Stanley Park just down the street -... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Best Western. We loved the location, so close to the beach and lovely walkways and away from the hustle and bustle of the main business district, but still an easy quick bus trip into the main shopping area of the city. We enjoyed the sunsets and a lovely meal at restaurants overlooking... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
