I stayed in Carmana Plaza for the 1 night I was in Vancouver with my family. When we went into the room we were excited by its size, it was really big. The view was great and the room was very clean. The greatest advantage of this hotel is its location. If you want for a hotel near the city center of the city so you will be able to walk all the downtown Vancouver this place is ideal. Approximately 5' walking from the coast, 10' from the big park and many other attractions which is very convinient if you don't have much time to spend, or if you just want to save your money from the transportation costs. I would suggest this room to anyone who is visiting Vancouver for vacation because of its great location and anyone going there for buisiness (or anything else besides tourism) because of its nice view, quite and cleaniness.

Room Tip: Choose one of the top floors if you can afford it because the view is wonderful and a ask the room a...

We spent six days here and the hotel suited our family group perfectly. We had a standard one bedroom suite for my husband and myself and a two bedroom suite for our two sons and their friend - all in their early twenties. The suites were really spacious, bright, comfortable and well-furnished: really more like apartments than hotel rooms. The kitchens were perfect for ad hoc meals.
The location of the hotel was great, a short walk to Canada Place and about 20 minutes to the beach. There were numerous restaurants close by and a fantastic food store just across the road so the lack of hotel restaurant was not an issue.
The front desk staff were friendly and efficient but unobtrusive. My request for the suites to be on the same floor and both on a high floor were respected.
We had a really great stay at the Carmana Plaza.
My only suggestion for improvement to these fantastic suites would be a washer dryer in the small spare room used for storage in each apartment. There is a general laundry room and a laundry service but for longer stays, having the option of a machine in the suite would be useful.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for 4 days. It was very clean, spacious and in a good location. I liked the coffee maker with variety of pods and bottled water supplied. There was a quality supermarket opposite. Very quiet apart from a little traffic noise. The building work did not impact on us at all as we were always up and out quite early. Only minor thing for us was that beds were a little firmer than we would have liked.

We stayed here for 4 nights on a recent family visit to Vancouver. The apartment was spacious clean and well equipped, with a very modern city feel. It's very central, within easy walking distance of Canada place, Robson street and Stanley Park. The view form the 18th floor is mainly of surrounding buildings although these are not oppressively close and we could see the water and mountains to the North between them (though they are building a Trump tower a block away to the North that's likely to obstruct that view). We also thought the cost for a spacious apartment for 4 in central Vancouver was not bad at 300 dollars a night (would do well to get equivalent accommodation in London for anything like that).

We stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment with the family, it was spacious and very good value for the money. IT's a few blocks away from the park and the shore, ideally located. Good friendly service overall. Don't look for luxury here but it's a great choice.

One of the best place to stay in Vancouver. Rooms are extremely clean, spacious and with all the comfort you would find in your home.
It is perfectly placed in the middle of downtown and surrounded with dozens of shops and restaurants, anyway the hotel staff would help you to find anything you need.
I love this place. It is the perfect spot to relax in this town.

This was an excellent hotel for our overnigh stay in Vancouver. Great value for the area, easy walk to restaurants and the waterfront. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the suite we had was very clean and well appointed. We had a corner suite with a small balcony. It was a very quiet place to stay. My only complaint would be that the bed was too firm.
