Great place to stay in Vancouver. Good location in walking distance to a lot of places. Lovely room with good amenities. Quiet rooms and comfortable beds. Loved our balcony too.
Friendly and helpful staff and concierge assistance. Loved using their complimentary bicycles to bike to Stanley Park.

Service at L'Hermitage during our 2-day stay was outstanding in every respect: staff were friendly, extremely competent and well-trained. The room was stylish and had everything we needed, albeit the bedroom was a little small compared to the sitting room area. The hotel's location is ideal for a city-centre holiday - close to the waterfront, to central shopping and sightseeing. The hotel's amenities are also outstanding - well-equipped gym, small but beautifull lap pool and terrace. We did not have the opportunity to use the restaurant although this looked very beautiful.

The hotel is so well located in downtown Vancouver that we managed to walk everywhere. Plenty of restaurants within 10-15mins walk.
The room was excellent. Lovely space, well appointed, bed was really comfortable and bathroom was very nice. Wi-fi was free and the signal strong. We had breakfast during our stay in the hotel. Very healthy and interesting choices!
The pool was small but if it's not busy, offers an enjoyable swim. The gym looked well kitted out.
All in all, we enjoyed in staying this wonderful hotel and would definitely be back if visiting again.

This was our first time in Vancouver so we really appreciated the guidance of TripAdvisor reviews. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time and effort to contribute.

In our experience, L'Hermitage fully lived up to its excellent reputation. From the moment we arrived (very late at night and tired after a 12-hour flight from China) we were made to feel wonderfully welcome by the reception staff and porter. From then on we always got a cheerful greeting whenever we passed in and out. We soon discovered that Canadians generally are very helpful and friendly people, but the L'Hermitage staff were spot on.

We booked a 1-bedroom Signature suite, primarily so we'd have a washing machine and dryer to catch up on our laundry after a week of travel. The apartment was just as good as described on the hotel's website - bright, spacious and fully equipped. Everything was beautifully clean on arrival and every day of our stay.

The location is superb, adjacent to the main shopping area and just a short walk (10-15 minutes) to attractions like the sea ferry terminal (for the cross-harbour ferry to Grouse Mountain) and Yaletown (for the little ferry to Granville Island). Stanley Park is a bit further, 20-30 minutes walk, but well worth it. We had planned to use the hotel's complimentary bicycles but the weather wasn't kind enough during our stay.

There are plenty of restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel. Le Crocodile was our favourite, again with thanks to TripAdvisor reviewers. Also there is a mid-size supermarket and a bottle shop just around the corner.

My husband and I were visiting Vancover for just 2 days so we booked 1 night at L'Hermitage Hotel. We were so pleased with our choice! The front desk staff was very accommodating and nice from the minute we walked in the door. There was a small miscommunication about whether our bags were being brought to our room but they were quick to fix that thanks to the BEST concierge - Raymond (I am terrible with names so I have his name wrong - I am so sorry). I asked him for help picking a place for lunch and dinner since it was my husband's birthday and when we showed up to both places, there were little extras (appetizers at both and a wonderful dessert at dinner) thanks to him!!! It made us feel very special. We found the staff that we encountered in the halls always had a smile and a kind greeting as well. It was such a pleasant atmosphere.

We called down to the desk to ask if we could reserve the bikes for the next morning and it was very easy. We took them at 7:30am and went for a 2 hour ride around Stanley Park (a must see when in Vancouver). It was perfect! What a nice touch to have the bikes available for no charge for 4 hours if you need them that long.

The beds and pillows were comfortable, the bathroom spacious with a tub and separate shower, and a great balcony (we overlooked the pool and spa). I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Oh and the resident dog is a fixture at the hotel. He is adorable.

Room Tip: We had a balcony and it was a nice feature.

Although upgraded the kitchen, laundry, and space of the den & separate bathroom features helped us recover from the long flight from Australia.
The room was clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was of a very high standard. Appreciated the fruit, muesli, freshly cooked egg, croissants and wholemeal toast and espresso.
The Concierges helped with informed unbiased advice & arrangements on a foodie restaurant, travel to Seattle (confusing ferry, rail & bus options) and more.
