Modern apartments with city views and balconies. Centrally located only a few blocks from the Burrard Bus Station and Skylink stop. One Bedroom Suite is spacious, modern and clean and was a nice change from a standard hotel room. Room 1203 has a corner balcony with sunset views. I wish we stayed more than one day.

Stayed 5 nights over the new year period in a 2 bedroom apartment. Carmana plaza is located in a great spot, easy walking distance to everything. Across the road is a supermarket called Urban Fare which we used to buy provisions for breakfast and up the road is a coffee place called JJ Beans that served delicious coffee. The apartment...

Thsee apartments are ideal for a stay of any length with everything you need in the apartment. It was within walking range to shops and attractions and only a short taxi ride to the airport. This is in what I would describe as an ideal location with a grocery store, coffee shops, shopping and attractions all within quick walking distances.

We needed a separate room for the kids, as they go to bed earlier than us, so stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. It was perfect for us & we were very well looked after. So central, you could walk anywhere for what you needed, or jump a bus out to Grouse Mountain or the likes. This was a great... More

Carmana Plaza is perfectly located on Alberni St which bills itself as the "rodeo drive" of Vancouver. It is opposite a mini supermarket with a Starbucks and buffet meal style place inside which is perfect for a quick lunch/coffee or to get supplies. I succumbed to an big block of couverture chocolate here (I must be on holidays). The rooms... More

Centrally located within Vancouver. Close to the shopping district and easy walking along the water front and along to Stanley Park. Shops for food supplies are just across the street and Tim Hortons is next door. Easy access to public transport to get to other attractions around Vancouver including Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Rooms are comfortable and... More

We have stayed 2 times in the Carmana Plaza and both times for 2 nights. We really love the place, beautiful and very clean apartments with a lot of space. Very friendly, mostly Asian, people at the reception. Excellent location!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Carmana Plaza whilst on a short visit to Canada visiting relatives. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. It was in an excellent location opposite a small , really well stocked supermarket ' Urban Fare' that also served hot and cold food. We shopped there a couple of times as... More

Stayed here with my wife for 2 days in a King bed suite on a floor higher up. Location is the biggest advantage, it is located right in the heart of downtown. The balcony had a beautiful view of the city. The suite had a spacious living area, a tidy kitchen, a balcony, a cosy bedroom & a clean bathroom.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
