Very relaxing, friendly staff and good room. Although not the hotel's issue the island is very congested and finding a parking spot for hotel guests is a challenge. There are specific spots for hotel guests but patient with this issue is required. There is lots to see on the island. The proximity to downtown Vancouver makes the location ideal.

Watch out for the bait-and-switch. Room photos and descriptions on their website are not what you actually get. "Water view" includes rooms with a only a view of roofs and downspouts. When I brought this to the front desk's attention, they readily pointed to a disclaimer in the fine print that said, "Rooms vary in size and layout." They seems... More

Beautiful views, easy access to fun things to do and walking along the sea wall. Easy access to Vancouver, via the water taxis. Great food and friendly staff. Many shops and markets with easy walking distance that offer locally made arts and crafts as well as food.

The Granville Island Hotel is in a quiet corner just a few feet away from the touristy island shops and a $12 cab or $5 aquabus ride to downtown. No ice machines on floors but bar will provide. Romantic restaurant with lovely view of False Creek. You can't go wrong. All this and friendly staff.

Excellent service from friendly, helpful staff in all departments. My room was very comfortable with an awe-inspiring view of the bay and mountains beyond. The location is perfect, in the middle of the lively Granville Island arts scene, with wonderful beaches, Downtown Vancouver and the delights of Grouse Mountain on the doorstep.

Very convenient and picturesque location on the tip of Granville Island; parking was on site, although paid. Requested 3 rooms with water view, and received only one. front desk staff were extremely accomodating--bringing extra towels to our rooms themselves, loading baggage into taxis for us, etc. We had some problems with hostess staff and our requests for seating on the...

Excellent facility. Great location. Loved being right at the boat docks. Loved the walking path. made use of it. Loved it. It was a great way to head out on an Alaskan Cruise. Loved being close the public market. Vancouver BC is a beautiful city.

Great views from our room. The location is amazing! We enjoyed shopping at the Market and eating at local restaurants. Check out the Brewery, great for sampling. We took the small water tour, you could get off at several locations. We enjoyed walking on the boardwalk.

Staying in Granville Island & Fairview

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
