Blue Horizon Hotel in Vancouver, B.C.
This has to be the best value in Vancouver. A very well-built, attractive, clean, tall hotel in the middle of Robson Street that is the middle of town. It is constantly up-dated with new windows (lots of them) a new lobby and a new restaurant. Surrounded by innumerable eateries. Good sushi and sashimi across the street, a 24/7 coffee shop with delicious baked goods (Beka) around the corner (Bute St.) and the government liquor store around another corner. Be aware of specific liquor store locations and their limited opening times in Canada. A monopolistic oddity of the first order—not known to any foreigners. Prepare yourself for double your prices.
Very generously laid-out rooms in the hotel, at least in the De-Lux version. Spring a few Loonies (Canadian dollars) to get one of those on the upper floors. They are so impressive, especially when you walk in on a sunny day with all those windows looking everywhere. It’s almost overwhelming. Exceptionally well-run with an outstanding staff. Our room-maid, Loretta Huang, remembers us after five visits (over ten years as she said.) She even remembers what room we had stayed in at the last visit. Whoa. And then there’s the reservation lady, Dee Montero, who has been there just as long, and is always a pleasure making reservations a long time in advance. We nominated them and a few others to the Vancouver Tourism Awards, rewarding service excellence.
The place needs a second chair, at least in a room with two beds or preferably a small couch with a coffee table in front, so that two travel companions can sit together with a glass of wine. The lovely ambiance in those rooms leads you naturally to that wish. Well, even missing out on that, you’ll sleep heavenly under their down comforters.
We look forward to another enjoyable visit to that place.
