“This is an outstanding hotel in a spectacular city.”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

The hotel is first class in all aspects. It is located in the heart of the city, close to everything. The furnishings are state of the art and the service is exceptional in all areas. "Market" restaurant is one of the very finest with high end service, quality and outstanding food. The chef is reknouned, and with good reason. It's the perfect restaurant for the perfect hotel!

Had a girls' getaway and stayed in a beautiful room. The bathrooms are spacious and GORGEOUS. Nice touch are the Nespresso machines to make coffee, and the location can't be beat. A block away from the best shopping in the city.

Everything is stumbling distance and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.

I had the pleasure of staying in an Executive suite on the 8th floor (rm 811). Massive corner room with a sitting area, generous bathroom double sinks, huge bed, wet bar nespresso coffee machine, mini foyer, and walk-in closet. The swipe card is your key to everything electronic in the room. Nothing is on or off - everything gently opens (the sheers and drapes) or softly comes up (the lights in the bathroom or at the spacious desk). Coolest light: the nigh light at ground level under both bed sides tables. Very helpful. Massive marble bathroom, amazing tub, 3/4 floor to ceiling windows. A balcony that is protected from the wind and rain but yet offers some Vancouver / ocean fresh air.
Stellar walk-in closet which conjures old Shanghai with a real clothes brush, extended wooden shoe horn, and a real garment bag made of cloth. Safe with a felt-lined jewelry tray. Pocket doors, magnetic door hardware that once touching will trigger the light to turn off.
The main entrance way to the hotel is on Georgia which cannot be used if you're arriving by car - weird. If you have a car, the entrance way is mid-Alberni on the north side sort of hidden but obvious once you zip past it about three times :) I have to say even though the car drop-off area and check-in works, it's a little odd arriving at the beautiful Shangri-la via the basement in a crumby car park.

Walking around: lots to do - Tiffany's, Chanel, Brooks Brothers, JJ Bean, sushi, liquor store, church, banks, all in the area.

Staff: so exotic, polite, helpful, gracious, with a great combination of style and a sense of humour.

Dog: (dog must be under 50lbs) I had my miniature poodle with me. No problems. The hotel welcomed him: dog bed, dog bowls, and dog-love. Word for your dog, there are no green spaces within 7 blocks. Closest official dog park is at Nelson and Thurlow otherwise it's tree wells on your way to JJ Bean for a mocha. Sorry pooch.

Room Tip: Rm 811 - the hotel is from floors 4-

Shangri-La is the best hotel in Vancouver , BC. There are many great hotels that offer superior service, amazing food, within the downtown area but only one hotel stands out in my mind as a truly paradise.

Room Tip: Ask the sales manager what is available

The Shangri-La Hotel is an oasis in downtown Vancouver. Elegant rooms, attentive service and a very tranquil atmosphere. The perfect get-away.

I had the pleasure of enjoying the excellent accommodations for an overnight business stay. The room was very well appointed, had excellent views out of floor to ceiling windows and was a very much appreciated respite from a long day.
The room was bested only by the staff and their plesent demour and excellent suggestions to best enjoy the city. On a playoff hockey night in Vancouver the concierge was able to not only suggest an excellent restaurant but phoned ahead allowing me to walk directly in to a waiting table. I highly recommend the Shangr-La.
