Room was very small and dark...very small window that I couldn't reach to let in fresh air. Once opened, was not able to close it to drown out the partying noise that came through from somewhere down the street. One of the two elevators did not work for the two days we were there and there were no face cloths... More

This was a pit stop for a night before leaving Vancouver the next day. No driveway so best to park car at vacant site next door. Granville Street is busy so road side drop off is a bit hazardous. Located closer to the Granville bridge (away from the waterfront), it's a bit of a long walk to the more touristy... More

My husband and I stayed here for a 4 day impromptu trip to Vancouver. The hotel location is great with a bus stop located right outside (we bought public transit passes for $9/day unlimited use which also is good for the sea bus) so it easy and cheap to explore. There is also a 7/11 and many restaurants near by,... More

Front desk clerk is super nice but this is the most disappointing property I have stayed at in a long time! Defiantly not even close to being worth $260 a night- outdated small and worn down. Terrible stench outside ....more comparable to a dorm room than a hotel! Checking out a day early and carrying on to a better property.... More

Good location within walking distance of most of downtown Vancouver although the immediate area is a bit rundown and scruffy with numerous shop doorway dwellers and beggars. The hotel itself is adequate if a little tired in decor with only one working lift. Reception and cleaning staff were very pleasant and courteous. Room was large and well equipped with microwave/fridge/coffee... More

We stayed the night here before heading out for a cruise. First of all, the people of Vancouver are some of the nicest I have ever met. Secondly, while this hotel is a few blocks from the port, it is certainly not one I would dismiss. It has loads of character, and was very clean and quiet. I will definitely... 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.
