“Vancouver Visit”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Flew in for an extended weekend to visit my wife who was in Vancouver on business. Excellent staff, very friendly and in a fabulous location. Market across the street and walking distance to Canada Place and Stanley Park.

We booked and executive suite which was great, we had a separate kitchen area, little office room, living room, bedroom and ensuite bathroom as well as a storage room where we could keep our suitcases. Everything was thought of, coffee and tea replenished every day, all we needed was fresh milk! All toiletries were provided, right down to make up remover wipes!!

The staff team was super, friendly and helpful and knew their area well, they even provide umbrellas for that Vancouver rain!

Room Tip: If you pay the little extra to get an executive suite you will be higher up and will get a better vi...

My husband and I stay at Carmana Plaza several times a year. We enjoy the friendly, helpful people and the cleanliness of the house. Fully equipped kitchen and spacious living room makes you feel like at home. It has a perfect, central location downtown, close to shopping and dining.
We recommend this house to all our friends and family.

We loved our roomy one bedroom at the Carmana; our apartment had an expansive view overlooking the small buildings/shops on Robson Street. Everything clean; the furniture seemed quite new. The kitchen was well stocked and the gourmet grocery store across the street was very convenient, but with so many great restaurants in Vancouver including the Kirin on the same block, we didn't shop at the store as much as we thought we would. The staff answered our questions cheerfully.

Spent 4 nights in the hotel. It was lovely. Clean, neat, tidy rooms and lovely comfortable bed. . Kitchen facilities were good. Good views from our apartment. The houskeeping staff were excellent. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, they made you feel that nothing was to much trouble. Loved the fact that we had a late afternoon flight and were able to check out and leave our luggage until we needed to go to the airport. All courtesy of the Hotel. Very convenient for shopping, sightseeing and getting around. Great gourmet food store across the road. Would definately go back to this Hotel.

Great hotel and location. Close to most things, free wifi, staff were cool. Great gourmet market and food hall across the road. Pink Elephant Thai place next door is cool too. Had a better bed before though.
Would definitely stay again.

Visited Vancouver with another couple, our friend booked us at this apartment hotel. Impeccable cleanliness, complete apartment with everything you need. Fantastic view on your private balcony. Easy walk to sites, restaurants and shopping. Great location. Everything they claim in their web site is true, maybe even better. True downtown Vancouver experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom suite
