We booked our stay at the Blue Horizon directly on hotel's website. For a small premium, we took the option of a Superior Room. The desk clerk asked us what sort of view we wanted, and gave us a south facing view on the 29th floor. It was incredible, with windows looking towards English Bay and Stanley Park. The sliding glass door opened onto a clean balcony, the room was tastefully decorated, the bed was huge, and there was a bar fridge (liquor store is a half a block away). We didn't turn on the television once, choosing instead to just enjoy the changing views. A mid-century landmark hotel on Robson Street, a short walk to Stanley Park, the beaches, and downtown: can't beat this for the price!

Room Tip: The front desk is helpful is assessing what sort of view you want - mountains, city, or ocean. It...

We enjoyed the amenities of the hotel and found all the staff to be very friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel meant that our car could be left parked and we could walk around the city-centre with ease. Many attractions are within a short walk.

Room Tip: All rooms seem super, the ocean view especially.

This hotel has it all. Located on Robson Street which is one of the main shopping streets. The rooms are big and mostly have a balcony. There is a small indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.
The hotel was clean and had friendly staff.
There is a restaurant but I did not use it as I decided to go further afield to eat.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a good view.

$103 on booking.com with sort of roller-coaster reviews but I thought, hey, what the heck.
Checking in: Peanuts. You park right beside this little side door, run in and check in in about 3 minutes.
Parking: only $16 and good until 3pm the next day. Perfect for perusing Robson Street etc even after you check out.
The ROOM: Seriously...3 weeks ago we stayed at the Fairmont at YVR and this was far superior. Clean, quiet, spacious, balcony, great street views.
The bonus entails a weird story: we were having lunch with my inlaws the next day and I had to bring an apple crisp. I brought everything to assemble it in the hotel room to be baked later (I'm handy like that) but was horrified to discover I grabbed nutmeg instead of cinnamon from home. I zipped down to the in-hotel restaurant, Abode, and asked for 2 tbsp of cinnamon. They gave it to me in a rameken to take upstairs - no charge, no questions asked.
Front desk service was prompt and professional.
I doubt I'll willingly stay anywhere else downtown ever again.

p.s. the apple crisp was delicious.

About to check out of this hotel in a few hrs after a lovely 2 night stay here. Very clean & surprisingly quiet. Beds are very comfortable & views of the city are lovely. Check in was a breeze & staff are very friendly. For those looking for shopping, this hotel is great as it is surrounded by great shopping. Was great to just leave the vehichle parked & walk everywhere to shop & dine. Will most definatley recommend to others and come back!!!

I've been staying here for many years. Never had a reason to not keep coming back. Other downtown hotels that I've stayed in tend to be much pricier without offering a whole lot more. Clean, quiet (save for the fact you're in a big city with all it's sirens and construction noise at times) and comfortable. The place has been very well maintained over the years. Great access to shops and restaurants as well as downtown business offices.

This time I was here for a weekend trip with my son. He enjoyed it, though the pool isn't the best around.

Room Tip: Get a corner on the south side for plenty of sunshine on the good days.

The Blue Horizon Hotel is not outstanding, but is in an excellent location on Robson (close to shopping and downtown action), has helpful and friendly front desk staff, and clean rooms at a very good price. I would stay here again.
