“Great position”
Reviewed February 26, 2006

My husband and I picked this hotel as it was a little away from the noise and bustle of Robson/Granville Street and we were not disappointed. Fantastic views from our windows overlooking the harbour and Grouse Mountain. What a way to wake up every morning.

The staff could not do enough for you, especially the reception staff who were extremely helpful. Very clean and had a great pool and jacuzzi which was great for those weary bones after walking around Vancouver all day.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel again. Only thing is that another hotel is being built nearer to the harbour and in front of this one, so I wonder what the views will be like once the new hotel is built.

Easy to walk everywhere from this hotel. Also very good was the business centre they have for residents which means you can use internet for free. Great idea.

My friend and I jut got back from an overnight stay at the Renaissance and we had a fabulous time! When we arrived, the bellman was very helpful and we got a free upgrade to a room with a view of the water and part of Stanley Park. It was in a great location, easy to walk to and great price! Also, they have a great jacuzzi, pool and sauna with a fantastic view of the water. I would definitely recommend staying here again!

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in October 2005.
It is in a great location; situated in a quiet part of town but within walking distance to Canada Place, Robson Street, Gastown and Chinatown. Even Stanley Park is within reasonable walking distance. It is also a scheduled stop for the Airporter Bus so it has easy access to and from Vancouver Airport.
I was given a room on one of the higher floors overlooking the Harbour...the views were absolutely magnificent with the mountains and North Vancouver as a backdrop! The room was spacious with all the latest amenities and even a heated bathroom floor.
However, the decor is a bit dated. The entire hotel needs a fresh coat of paint both inside and out since it looks very old and tired compared to the Marriot Hotel opposite. There was new development on the Harbor front with a lot of building activity so it was rather noisy during the daytime.

Good Location if traveling for business or you have a car!

Got this hotel thru a discount travel company and paid $65.00 american a night. Excellent deal at this price. We had a terrific view from the 16th floor. Unfortunetly the view is going to be partly blocked with yet another "Glass tower" going in.

The room was spacious and clean. No tub in our room.
Bed was really hard and needed 4 extra pillows. The TV was not working properly. room felt sort of dated in interior.

Hotel itself was very clean and so were the amenities. Front Desk staff very nice.
Very unsatisfied with long distance calls to USA. Was told one rate and got billed $$$. check out staff, smiled and said thats the rate. Unacceptable.

Woould stay here again in the future. -)
Happy New Year!

Beautiful hotel and in a great location. We had a room that overlooked the water. However there is a lot of constuction going on, so soon they will lose most of that fabulous view. We spent about 3-4 hours at the revolving rooftop restaurant one night. That was one of the highlights of the trip, and a definate MUST if you stay there.

Last time I stayed in Vancouver I was at the Marriott across the street. The Renaissance is definitely a cut above. Excellent room, fine staff, attentive service.

My fiance and I arrived at this hotel on a whim. We were in town from Seattle for some R&R. We never had stayed in a room with waterviews.
The bellman greeted us upon arrival escorting our bags to check-in, and waiting for our check-in to escorting our bags to our room w/out being asked.
The man at check in was a little rude with us and did not have a personality.

Pros:
Awesome Views
Comfortable Bed
Nice Interior
Great comp breakfast

Cons:
