I love this hotel. We visit Vanc,BC at least once a year and usually stay at the Hotel Vancouver Fairmont. I was not disappointed with this new hotel for us. The rooms are large,airy and light. We were on the 26th floor and what a view! Every room has a balcony and is a corner room with lots of glass. Very clean and sound proof. I never heard anyone and we were next to the ice machine. The only downside is the small bathroom,but still would stay here on our next trip to Vancouver. Request an upper floor (30 max) and enjoy the view.

I picked Blue Horizon based on Trip Advisor reviews as a low-cost alternative to the much pricier hotels offered by my professional society for our annual meeting. I was not disappointed. Despite being located on busy Ronson St., the room was very quiet and the 2 queen sized beds were very comfortable. The room was huge with a lounge area, large flat screen TV and the 2 large beds. The bathroom though was a bit tight and definitely was not roomy enough to hold more than one person at a time. There also were minimal toiletries available in the bathroom-just soap, shower gel and skin lotion, so bring your own shampoo. In-room Internet was free. For the price, this was definitely a winner!!

you know by now that the blue horizon is a high rise right in the middle of Robson street. right where you want to be if you prefer walking to pubs, restaurants, stanley park and shopping over being in a remote, quiet location.
we were on the 18th floor and with a great view facing down Robson towards the water. the room was very comfortable and spacious for two of us. we could hear a little street noise early morning. the room costs us $119 with $18 in taxes. Parking would be additional but we opted for bus service from whistler and a cab to the airport.
we rented bikes on denman street & rode around the waters edge. many neighborhoods. beautiful. i would that again.
we walked to granville street, stopped at the Lennox pub to people watch and then on to Doolin's to watch some hockey (with Vancouver in play-offs) and a casual dinner. We also enjoyed three places very near the Blue Horizon: Miko Sushi, Don Guacamole and Fogg n & Suds (for a great selection of beer).
the front desk staff was professional & friendly - they answered all questions and provided excellent directions.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews, location and price and stayed there prior to our cruise to Alaska. We thoroughly enjoyed it to the extent that we stayed there again on our return to Vancouver. Also stayed at a 5-star hotel in Vancouver as part of our tour package and found the Blue Horizon compared very favourably. The location was excellent and service good; our superior room was high up and had spectacular views. It was also well-appointed, spacious and very clean - and isn't that the most important thing? We also visited the restaurant for several meals and found the food good and reasonably priced. Couldn't quite get our heads around "soup and salad" though! All in all a very pleasing experience and we would certainly go back.

It's a very nice place in a great location on Robson. Rooms are spacious and ours had a great view. All rooms are corner units which makes them feel even bigger. The only negative with the place was that the hot tub was not functioning during our stay, One of the main reasons we chose BH was because of the pool/spa facilities. Of course we did not find this out until we had our suits on and were ready for a soak. I went to the front dest to inquire about the ETA on repair and was told. "We hope to have it fixed this afternoon" This was at 4:30! Pretty obvious it was NOT getting fixed that day. We just think it would have been nice if they mentioned this during check-in. At that point we could have made another choice. I would definitely stay there again. Some late night noise on the street but beds super firm and comfortable,
Be sure to stay away from the Inlet Restaurant attched to the hotel. They even give you a $5 coupon. The food was terrible! Over cooked and over priced! Many better options on Robson. Didn't make it to the affliated bar Shennanigan's but would have my doubts.

I chose this hotel based on reviews from this website and the cost advertised at the time. We were only in Vancouver for a day before we transferred to Whistler so we wanted to be in the middle of everything and see the town without renting a car. The location was perfect. It was in the middle of Robson which is a big shopping street, it was close to walk everywhere - shopping, the harbor, Stanley Park, etc. Every room is a corner room, it had several windows, a balcony, work desk, fridge, and was very spacious. The views of downtown were amazing and the beds were super comfy.

Bit of a walk from SkyTrain station but otherwise good location for street shopping. Fantastic service from front desk. Decor needs updating. Beds are comfortable although a little firm. Would rate it 3.5/5 stars.
