One of our family members lives in Vancouver so we go at least once a year. We've stayed in other places, but if you try to stay at a B&B in Vancouver, make sure they have parking available for YOU, because some that said they had parking meant that parking was available across a busy highway if the neighbors hadn't...

The building was nice but small, on the corner of a busy street. Man at the counter wasn't very friendly or helpful. I believe it was a manager who came to help store our luggage until our room was ready. A/C was not very functional. In the window and facing the wrong direction, odd! The room was clean and the...

We were very pleased with this hotel. I chose it for its proximity to the Rocky Mountaineer train station, as well as good experiences in other Best Westerns. The room was well equipped, quiet, and comfortable. We had to leave early, so didn't experience the breakfast. The desk clerk was helpful directing us to an ATM and recommending the nice... More

I was surprised that as A Best Western Plus I was in a Best Western "Ordinary". Room was on the main floor,crampted and difficult to use.Oarking garage was a nightmare crampted difficult to negotiate for any car larger than a mini or compact! Hotel needs a total upgrade and freshening to be competitive.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry that you found your stay to be less than satisfactory. I'd like to mention that we are aware that we are a small boutique style hotel. The rooms don't have a great deal of living space but we pride ourselves on keeping them clean and quite. Also, please... More

Good hotels in downtown Vancouver B.C. during the summer season are very expensive. This one is not. In more than 20 hotel stays in 8 Western state and B.C.in the last 12 months, we have found this is typical of Best Western: Comfortable rooms, nice amenities and very good to outstanding value in desirable locations.

Thank you very much for the kind and considerate review. I would like to mention that we are actually located in an area known as Mount Pleasant which is not downtown Vancouver but about a 10-15 minute drive away. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you soon More

Stayed here when we settled my daughter into college. Definitely very good value with breakfast and variety of restaurants walking distance. Urban feel but never felt dangerous to walk about. Unfortunately terrible fitness center hours so could never work out in their decent gym. Staying there again when we visit our daughter.

Thank you for the review. I'm glad that you generally enjoyed your stay. I should mention that the fitness center was built above another room making it impossible to open earlier without disturbing the guests. We look forward to your return. Thanks again. More

The rooms were clean and quiet. The staff was extremely helpful and the lady who worked the breakfast room went out of her way to ensure a pleasant experience. I would stay there again when visiting Vancouver. The only negative is the weird parking garage which makes you glad to rent a very small car.

Convenient place to stay - not far from SkyTrain station - we were able to walk. Staff were incredibly helpful - found us a room to check in early. Plentiful breakfast - but small cramped room to eat it in.

Staying in South Main

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
