“Great location, one block from Waterfront”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

Lovely hotel, trendy and modern decor. Very helpful front desk and other staff encountered. Wonderful location, just a block from the waterfront area, close to Stanley Park and also Robson St. Only complaint was there was no fridge in the room. Front desk told me that they do have some, which upon request, you may receive one (ie. for medical reasons). They say they do not have them to save on the environment. More likely their own pockets!
Sorry, for over $200 per night, I'd like a fridge.

Im a 40-something english guy who travels a reasonable amount for work and for pleasure. Stayed for 2 nights in June 2011 with a friend. CC Harbour punches above its weight / cost with v large stylish rooms, lovely service and good location
Things we liked about the hotel :
- we both had corner rooms with floor to ceiling glass windows. they felt posh and special. Def 5 star space. good beds and v well equipped ( I particularly liked the range of teas coffees inc proper filter coffee to go ). loved the free wifi, ipod doc and - a nice touch - 3 bins for recycling. ahead of the curve
- large, well equipped and clean bathrooms
- consistently lovely service. no question was unimportant to the front of house staff
Minor quibbles :
- SPARSE. the lobby felt cavernous, a bit loud and under-decorated. We arrived at the same time as a group and it felt like a bus station.Lifts felt like service lifts ie big and empty. The bathrooms were huge but again felt empty with no pictures / softening features. It wouldn't cost that much to fix that to make it feel like a 5 star hotel at a 4 star price. It just felt a little as tho the money had run out at that point.
- the valet parking was a bit expensive
- the breakfasts were good quality but - v un-n.american - too small - portions
- my room was cleaned v late one day.
Overall : v good value for what you get.

This hotel was perfection all around. I stayed in a Premium suite and LOVED it! The bed was amazing, the view was amazing, the bath tub was amazing. It was very beautiful, clean, and modern. The service...oh the service! Top notch service from the entire staff and it never stopped. The turn down service was lovely. I came into my rm after an entire day out to soft music playing, chocolates on my bed, my curtains closed, a fresh bottle of water, and a light on. The room service was also top notch, and the food was DELISH! I, unfortunately did not try Prestons (the restaurant) but I did try both the gym and the pool. Both were LOVELY. The location is just perfect with short walks to all amenities and beautiful Vancouver sights. I would stay at the Coast again in a heart beat. In fact, I was quite sad to have to return home!

We were looking for a chance to rest after a stressful time of year. The Coast Coal Harbour definitely delivered! Rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had an amazing view of the harbour. Proximity to Stanley Park, grocery market, shopping on Robson Street, and Canada Day celebrations was perfect. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The only down side was the costly parking. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for one night pre-cruise. Couldn't have chosen a better location. Arrived earlier than the designated check in time, but it wasn't a problem. We had booked the least expensive room thru orbitz, which meant that we prepaid for the room. When we arrived we asked for a room with a great view as this was our first time to Vancouver. We were told that our room was in the back of the hotel looking at the city, but the great views are in the front of the hotel, which is an upgraded room. So they ask us if we wanted to upgrade for $30 and we did so (when we checked out, they actually did not even charge us for the upgrade). Our room was on floor 11 and it was looking out over the Coast Coal Harbour. Even though the view was between 2 buildings, it was still a great view. The check in staff was very friendly, and the bellhop delivered our bags for us promptly. We walked along the harbour, viewed the incoming/outgoing ships and seaplanes. Got coffee and pastries at Tim Hortons, ate a late lunch as there were numerous choices all within walking distance. We returned for a nap late afternoon, but the beds were so comfortable that we slept thru the night. Rooms are decorated with minimal accessories, but had everything we needed. One of the cleanest hotel bathrooms I have ever seen.

Room Tip: Upgrade to front of hotel for view of harbour
