“The Perfect Downtown Hotel”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Listel is a beautiful, boutique hotel with an awesome some location in downtown Vancouver.
It is run by professionals, who care about good service and they layer on those little touches that make you feel good.
It isn't the most luxurious place to stay, amenities are scarce, it's a little tired, but that is all overcome by the beautiful artwork, convenience and service.
SPend a quiet night or more here while you explore Vancouver, you will be very happy.

Room Tip: Ask for the Robson St. side to get a good view.

We booked rooms for 6 couples for one night, pre-cruise night. The hotel is located in the hub of all the downtown shops and restuarants. It is clean, even though the rooms may have been slightly dated. All 6 couples were pleased with the booking. The staff were very helpful in directing us to a nice restuarant. When I booked it I thought it was a little pricey, but evidently everything in Vancouver is. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: We were in the back, not much view, but most likely it was more quiet.

We stayed at the Listel Hotel in Vancouver for two nights before embarking on a cruise to Alaska. We had 13 people in our party with five rooms, and the Listel did a great job of accommodating all of us! We chose the hotel based on price, location (central and a quick cab ride to cruise terminal), and the availability of suite-style accommodation. What a great value for this hotel!!

We checked in on a Saturday afternoon. My husband & I had booked one of their suites because we were traveling with our toddler and we wanted her to have a separate room to nap in. It was spacious and clean. The decor was a little dated but we didn't mind at all. We had a lovely sitting room with great views of the city, water, and mountains in the distance. The master bedroom was large enough for a king bed, window seat, pack n play, and armoire. The bathroom was pretty cool - large soaking tub, rain shower head, toto toilet, and two sinks (one sink was just outside the bathroom). Great black-out drapes helped our minds adjust to the time change quickly.

I would say that the hotel itself is a four-star (equivalent to nice marriott or hilton, but below a ritz or four seasons) but the service was so great that I felt they deserve the five-circle 'excellent' rating. We only had a short day-and-a-half of touring and the front desk staff was so helpful in helping us prioritize. They called cabs for us and gave us coupons and directions whenever needed.

The hotel restaurant Forage was a highlight of our stay. We're sad to say that we weren't able to eat there for lunch or dinner (no time!) but we had breakfast there twice. It's a true farm-to-table restaurant where almost everything - including condiments - is homemade. My daughter had the pumpkin brioche french toast both mornings and it was divine. I chose the yogurt parfait and it came with the best cranberry scone I've ever eaten. The second morning I had the bagel with smoked salmon & cream cheese and it was also quite good. Many in our party had the standard eggs/meat/toast combos, but everyone varied their selections within that and had great meals. Our awesome server Dean also brought out wood planks with homemade 7-grain bread and homemade jams for the table to share. He remembered us all on the second day including our drink orders! Dean was just lovely to our toddler and we appreciated his service so much.

Thanks Listel Hotel for a great stay! We'll be staying again the next time we are in Vancouver.

We booked through hotels.com 45 days prior,when we arrived the first room was ready but our second room was being cleaned.on returning they told us we did not have our original room but could have a king bed...for 3adults!! They told us booking through a third party was no guarantee!!! A load of rubbish! Finally the manager quietly slipped in, and all of a sudden our original room was returned to us.while the desk called another hotel looking for spare rooms! Bizarre

We sincerely apologize for the confusion upon arrival regarding your reservation, and are very pleased that our manager was able to capably sort things out for you. On occasion in a business with as many moving parts as ours things don’t always go as smoothly as they should. However, thank you for sticking with us; we are extremely happy to see that you enjoyed your room and our fabulous location once we sorted everything out!

Our seven night stay at the Listel included Breakfast (Forage Restaurant separate review) arranged by TrailFinders. Great Boutique Hotel, a little sad around the edges of decoration & our room looked out onto the garbage bins & deliveries, but from check-in to check-out, the staff were efficient, attentive & polite. We asked for extra towels & robes that were delivered within minutes of asking. The hotel booked trips for us. Hotel recommended transfers from YVR that worked just fine. No complaints about cleanliness. We had a Museum floor room that was simply furnished but more than adequate & the bed was very comfortable. Free WiFi. Our deal included taxes etc but I was expecting my credit card to be hit (North American Hotels charge you to breathe) but Thank you Listel, No Extras.

I think that says it all. I have been coming here for ten years or more and keep coming back. On this visit there had been changes to the restaurant/breakfast/bar layout but it all worked just as well as on previous visits. Staff helpful as ever and, for me, the location is just right for the mix of things I want to do whenever I visit Vancouver.

Paid extra for a little more luxury,so opted for museum floor,very disappointing,cracked and stained wash basin,cheap plastic containers for shower gel etc screwed to the wall,badly in need of redecorating,on the good side it was a good sized room and the beds were large with crisp clean bedding,the restaurant for breakfast was awesome (we paid for breakfast when we booked) the restaurant looked as if it had just been upscaled,so maybe their going to do the whole hotel,staff were very good especially the young lady in the restaurant,pity the 20-30 something young man wasn't as pleasant as her

Room Tip: Not sure if floors above Museum floor are any better,but give the museum floor a miss until it's...
