“Bon Anniversaire, Hippo!”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

We stayed at l'hermitage for 3 nights at the start of our honeymoon. The location is perfect for exploring Vancouver and the rooms were extremely spacious & very good value for a city centre hotel.

Most importantly though the hotel really has a character. The staff were unbelievably helpful & we will never forget Hippo's 5th birthday party! Thank you, Hippo

We stayed here for a couple of nights and absolutely loved it. Concierge was amazing and took care of all reservations for us, gave us good tips for sightseeing and were always one step ahead of us in our expectations. The hotel is beautiful, we had a fireplace in our room, bathrooms were gorgeous, had chocolates on our pillows every night and the lounge was beautiful as well. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel itself was very modern and luxurious. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. There was one issue which was handled extremely well. We were awoken at 5:30am by a false fire alarm due to a sprinkler system error. The hotel gave everyone who exited the hotel a $100 credit toward their stay, which we felt to be extremely gracious.

This is my second time staying at L'Hermitage for an extended period of 30+ days and the first review I feel compelled to write. The staff are simply the best and the service is exceptional from the general manager down to housekeeping. Everyone made me feel at home. I was in Vancouver for work last year and there was no other place I would consider staying if I am there again. The hotel itself is very impressive in its rooms and facilities. The location is simply the best as it is centrally located and just 5 blocks from the Granville St. entertainment district. Its also close almost on the Robson St. shopping track and all the food shops nearby are great. It is definitely the place to stay when in Vancouver.

We had the privilege to stay 3 days prior to our Alaska cruise. I found the hotel through Trip Advisor as this was our first visit to Vancouver. What we didn't realize was that the L'Hermitage is primarily a residence that they rent a small portion of the units as a hotel. You can imagine our surprise when we arrived and found our room equipped with top-end appliances (e.g.: SubZero refrigerator!) and a washer/dryer combination in the closet! We also dined at the attached restaurant, Q4 Al Centro which was also excellent and gives you a discount if you are staying at the hotel. The hotel is also located adjacent to a grocery store at the corner - which is very convenient, particularly when you are traveling with kids.
The only thing that we'd note as a minor negative is the small bathroom (we were in a 1 bedroom unit suite) so we had to use the kitchen counter as overflow space.
If you are traveling with a family and want/need a kitchen and washer/dryer, this is your only and best choice for a luxury property.

This is the perfect place to complete that special night with your special girl. I swam in the rooftop pool, took a dip in the hot tub, and had breakfast in the lounge. Your girlfriend will love the special attention to detail that this hotel has. Absolutely blew me away.

This is not a place you want to stay if you are on business.
I give it a low rating for value because I personally don't see much "value" in luxuries.
