“Nice hotel”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights in all
It is well placed for the airport - we got to the hotel via the Skytrain from the airport to Broadway City Hall station and then a short ride eastward on the 19 bus - much cheaper than a cab !
Room was a little dated but comfortable, quite spacious and quiet - we slept well on all nights.
Front desk staff were very helpful and efficient.
Breakfast choice was quite plentiful and suited our needs . The breakfast room is a little small and there was a bit of a 'grab and go' feel to it - but you could always take your selection up to your room if you wanted to sit more comfortably. Alternatively the 'Salt and Pepper' restaurant next door did breakfast with a wider choice although you pay for that of course.
The hotel was convenient for buses with direct routes to Stanley Park and the waterfront.
It was a good value hotel and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Road outside is quite busy so go for a high floor or one of the rooms at the back

We stayed here for 2 nights in September. The price fit our budget, the staff on the front desk were very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and bus routes. The beds were clean and had a cover on the mattress. The room was quiet. Breakfast was plentiful.

Room Tip: I'd recommend this hotel as an alternative to the more expensive downtown hotels. The #19 bus t...

Excellent location close to transportation, includes a great breakfast, apples, bananas, danish, croissants, toast, bagels, waffles, sausage, bacon, egg, coffee, tea, juice. Clean, modern rooms, super staff all in a wonderful city! Small mall across the road with liquor store, shoppers drug, etc Great local bus service so car not really needed if you can walk. Great place to stay for a great rate. Enjoy!

We were 4, we have a good sleep. Some sounds from the street enter by the air conditioner.The hotel was quiet. We had a good continental breakfast, anyway all Best Western breakfast are the same, and it's good. We go to the Canucks game, and take the skytrain down the strret. When we came back we had to walk 15 minutes to get back to the hotel, perfect for young that want to go the game, and with the skytrain, you can go to Gastown too.
I forget to say that the room was very clean and the bathroom too.

Room Tip: we were at room 314, the last at the aisle, so we had no other room after us.

I always stay here when I'm in town visiting family, and friends. The location is great with quick access to downtown or elsewhere, it's nicely centralized. I"ll be staying again during my next trip to Vancouver.

While the staff was friendly and helpful with parking, the underground parking lot is a design disaster. If you don't drive a smart car, you can't park very easily down there. The bed was not overly comfortable, and the comforter was incredibly lumpy. I would not likely return to this hotel.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your insights, I am sorry to hear that you were not pleased with your stay. The hotel tries its best to be transparent regarding the issues we have at this property we do our best to warn guests of the complicated parking and we also offer overflow parking in the evenings between 9pm and 9am. Our beds however do receive much praise from our guests, though admittedly not everyone likes the same bed as such we did try to get the most neutral bed as possible it is not to firm and not too soft either. The duvets are definitely on top of the list to be replaced and we have two rooms that currently feature the triple sheeting set up that the hotel will be utilizing in the very near future.

I hope that in the future you will continue to use Best Western for your accomodation needs.

Thank you,

If you can handle all your own luggage, this is a fine hotel. There is no stopping in front of the hotel, so the cab had to pull around the corner and drop us and luggage quickly on the sidewalk. The hotel has no porter to help. The desk clerk did try to help a bit, but had to leave the phone and her position to do so..

Thank you for taking the time to provide your review of our hotel. It is correct that the hotel does not have bell staff as we are a smaller boutique style property, however the front desk staff are more then willing to assist you with your baggage. As for the no stopping laws for Kingsway they are only in effect from 7am - 9:30am the rest of the day the hotel does have a passenger zone directly in front of the lobby doors.

Once again thank you for your review and we hope that you will continue to use Best Western for your accomodation needs.
