We picked The Carmana as it provided a 1-br suite layout that suited us. The glass meals nook was a focal point at night as we looked across the city lights, the kitchen was fully laid out with modern appliances, the lounge area more than big enough for our requirements (we also had our daughter with us using the sofa bed) and the bed and pillows were absolutely the most comfortable we have ever experienced. The BC Liquor store is right next door, Urban Fare (directly opposite), an upmarket deli/cafe/market was really handy, a Tim Hortons/Wendys is just 30 metres away and the best value Japanese restaurant in Vancouver (Oysi Oysi) was right next door! What can I say - the best spot in town - we loved it because it had a real home away from home feel. Hosekeeping was done daily and nothing was ever too much trouble for the service staff, front desk and concierge.We were there for 17 nights and could easily have stayed much longer. I can highly recommend this venue as its location was central to everything, it had fantastic restaurants within a few meters and was a very comfortable suite. Full marks to management.

This was an apartment style hotel room with a kitchen, one bedroom and a pull out sofa bed in the living area. Everything was very confortable and the location was great. A few blocks to a big shopping mall: the Pacific Centre, and right in the mddle of some good restaurants. Right across the road is a large great deli/supermarket with almost anything you could want. It is also quite close (several blocks but easy with pull along luggage) to the Sky rail which gives you the cheapest trip to an airport that I have ever experienced.

We stayed at the Carmana Plaza at the end of August and next time we return to Vancouver we will stay there again.

The hotel and apartment was very clean, staff nice and helpful.

Across the road is a superb supermarket called 'Urban Fayre' which had everything you needed to stock the kitchen as well as coffee and deli snacks to take out. Also close by is an 7/11, Tim Hortons and liquor store.

The Location is ideal for getting around downtown and we felt very safe in the area.

This is good value for money when comparing to the tariffs for similar quality accommodation in downtown in either a 4 or 5 star hotel.

Will not hesitate to return here again.

Stayed here enroute to a cruise. It's pretty close to the cruise ship piers and very well located in a nice neighborhood in one of the nice parts of Vancouver. Its a small, somewhat non-nondescript hotel in general, but the suites are great as everyone says. Makes a great home base for families, or for extended stays. Definitely highly recommend it. Nice gourmet food store right across the street so you can utilize the kitchen.

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed at Carmana Plaza in Aug/09. The check in process was very easy, the front desk staff were very helpful with all of our requests.

We were staying in the carmana rooms, on the 31st floor. For 220 dollars a night, you CANNOT go wrong staying here. It was much nicer than I expected. The room does not feel like a hotel at all. It feels like you are staying in someonses very nicely appointed condo. When you walked in the room it has a spacious front entrance with marble tiles and a closet. The whole room was very new and clean, the windows allowed for amazing views all day. The room had a 42" lcd with 5.1 surrond system, which came in very handy for listening to music. The living room also had a nice glass table for eating. The kitchen had everything you could want for cooking. The room decor is very modern and nice to look at, much better than stuffy 'retro' hotel rooms like fairmont. The balcony had the most amazing view I have ever had in a hotel room.

The bedroom was well appointed, with a comfy bed, lcd tv mounted on the bedroom wall and ensuite bathroom. The bathroom was average, it was very clean and new so I cannot complain.

The location could not have been any better, you are close to everything you would want to go and see. Bars, Restaurants, Shopping, Stanley Park are all walking distance. In fact, we only took 1 cab the entire trip.

I do not have pictures of the suite, but if you google vancouver serviced apartments carmana plaza you will find pics of the rooms.

I would highly recommend Carmana Plaza to anyone, I will definitley return!
