“Comfort stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

I stayed with my husband at this hotel for 2 nights during my short stay at Vancouver after my vacation in Banff.

The lobby is tidy with simple but basic facility. There is a mini-kiosk where you can grab drinks & snacks, and also micro-wave food. Necessities for traveller are also available there. Several desktops & printer are free for the guests to use.

My room is spacious with a mini-pantry where all basic electrical appliances are in good condition for use. Utensils are available which provide you an option to prepare and enjoy the meal in the room.

Free breakfast are provided to all guests which reasonable variety of food & drinks. The food quality is good. The dining room is spacious where you can get a seat without any problem.

The front desk is helpful to provide information about the local tours, transportation in response to our queries . They also help us to book the tours and arrange taxi.

We were very happy with the standard our our hotel room with kitchen for our 3 night stay. Two double beds for 2 adults and 2 children. Balcony was large. Kids loved the pool and we put the gym to use while using the guest laundry. Bonus was the included buffet breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bar and restaurant downstairs however you are walking distance or a short cab ride to many great restaurants too. 7 eleven on the corner and a 10 min downhill walk to the riverfront. We followed the path along to Elizabeth Bay. Easily accessible to public transport too. Would definitely recommend for business or leisure.

My husband and I stayed here during our brief stay in downtown Vancouver. Overall I was very pleased with this hotel: free breakfast, nice comfy king bed, balcony with a great view, central location and walking distance to Granville Island ferry, restaurants, train station, and 7-11 across the street where you can buy day passes for public transit. Excellent place to stay for the price, and will definitely consider this hotel again next time we visit.

Room Tip: Better view from the top floors. Definitely worth the extra small bit of money for a room with a vi...

We were in Vancouver for a few days prior to leaving on an Alaskan cruise. Since I was traveling my parents and my own family, I needed a place that was family-friendly and decided on the Residence Inn. First off, I was not charged with the rate that I booked with, which is a government rate that I inquired eligibility for prior to booking. Instead, I was given the "other government rate" that was a bit more than the rate I initially booked under. I was not happy, but it was a long weekend and I did not want to be stuck looking for other accommodations during my trip.
The cab ride tot he hotel from the airport was about $37, plus tip. The hotel itself was a bit old, but had been updated. Our room had a full kitchen with everything you need to prepare a meal, except the food! Since I was traveling with family that has dietary restrictions, it was a life saver, although, there are a TON of places to eat within walking distance. The room was clean and spacious. The only downside was that we were near an elevator (literally across from it) and I could hear the bell go off if it stopped on our floor.
The free breakfast is very convenient and the selections were good. My advice would be to get there early because the line was running down the hall when I tried to grab something to go prior to them closing and things got pretty hectic.
Check out was smooth and the Port was only a few blocks away. If you are traveling light and are in good shape, I would say its a pleasant walk. But since I had a child and packed heavy, we took a quick cab ride down.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator. The constant "dinging" will keep you up at night.

What a delight to arrive from the cruise ship dock in under 10 minutes and under $10.00! The hotel is very well appointed with metallic accented floor tiles, warm fireplace, and friendly staff. Our balcony on the 17th floor provided a nice view of the city, and the secure entry key cards are a plus.
There are several good restaurants close by and a very nice wine shop as well, which works when you have a spacious room with a beautiful sitting area! The included breakfast allows for a full day of sightseeing, and the kind staff will provide an umbrella for the rainy days!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with water view

The Residence Inn is located near Yaletown where there are a variety of restaurants. It's also a fairly easy 10-15 minute walk to Robson Street, which has tons of shopping and wide variety of restaurants as well. It's probably a 20 minute walk to Stanley Park. We had a queen suite room which was quite large, very clean and had a neat little kitchen area with refrigerator. The breakfasts each day had a large selection from bagels to waffles and everything in between. The service at the front desk was very accommodating. The only thing you have to get used to is you need to use your room key in the elevator in order to stop at your floor. But that's a neat security feature and worth the trouble. Highly recommend.

We utilised this great Hotel when in Vancouver and were quite impressed with what we got for our money. The Queen suite was well laid out, spacious and had a Balcony with fabulous views of Vancouver.

The breakfast Buffet was always well stock and the staff very accommodating if something ran out or you had a specific request.

The location is great in that you can walk downtown with 15 minutes or other direction to Granville Island in 5 minutes.

The staff were very polite and tended to our requests with a professional attitude.

Would recommend it for your stay should you venture to Vancouver.

Room Tip: Get a room with a Balcony and a view over Vancouver the higher up the better, you wont be disappoint...
