After 3 nights in crappy hotels, this was a welcome change. If you look up that (overused) phrase "urban chic" in the dictionary, this would be the picture. Clean, sleek, well-designed and well-equipped. (That adorable little dishwasher made me squeal like a school girl.) No a/c which worried me, but with the windows open even on a warm July day,...

I wasn't expecting much especially for the price. Well I am impressed and I do like nice Hotels. The rooms here are suites. Bedroom, Living Room, Kitchen & Bathroom. The suites are very nicely decorated, the towels are good as are the products. Housekeeping do a great job in keeping the rooms clean every day. Try and get a room... More

If you have business on campus this is a convenient solution. The suite was nicely appointed, separate bedroom with large, very comfortable king bed. Kitchenette was handy, however there is nothing within walking distance to pick up snacks or food and no restaurants in the vicinity. Taxis are expensive going into town and back every day, so renting a car... More

If you are on campus at UBC, this is the best spot. We stayed in a suite that had a nice kitchen where we could fix breakfast. There was ample parking and the garden area outside was wonderful. There weren't any real negatives, but the lanai window could have used a screen door (to keep the bugs out). Beyond that,... More

Fabulous spacious one bedroom suites with good bedding, bathrooms, kitchenettes, but no Air conditioning and lots of noise from traffic and buses. Wi-fi was very iffy( no way to work) and breakfast not great. Lots of parking, easy to find. Would go back in the winter only. A decent choice around $200 but not worth anymore.

We stayed one night: very nice apartment style suits with good kitchen facility. Superb place to stay if you are visiting UBC. The walls/floors are bit thin - it is easy to hear the neighbors - but apart from that, great value for your money!

I recently stayed at the West Coast Suites at UBC's Gage Towers as I was on campus writing a test. The location is fantastic, and the room was very well appointed. The three of us were very comfortable, and the price was quite reasonable for the amenities provided. We really enjoyed the full kitchen, as well as the separate bedroom.... More

This is an unusual hotel. The great majority of the facility is a UBC dorm and check-in involves waiting in line at the student desk. We had to wait while a student was extracted from a stuck elevator in the dorm part of the facility (the high rise). Our suite was in a separate, apartment-style building with complete kitchen, separate... More

Stayed 2 nights in late January for some business at UBC. The location is great with regards to being on UBC campus, and within 100m of the bus exchange. This allows you to get on a bus and into downtown Vancouver in anywhere from 25 - 40 minutes (depending on bus, time of day, traffic, etc.). The only downside to... More

This is an very acceptable pace to stay if your focus is the UBC campus. Clean, fresh you are given an efficient suite complete with a kitchen and separate bedroom. Nothing fancy but finished very well. The location isn't very attractive but you are exactly where you want to be and the drive from DT runs about 30 mins so... More

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighborhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
