Best Western Plus Uptown Hotel
Ranked #50 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Reviewed October 3, 2009

This hotel is ok. Comfortable, free parking, nice view if you are lucky enough to get a room oriented toward VC downtown. The room was nice. Free internet, and continental breakfast included, but in a very small room (there's even no place for everyone). This was the worst experience here. Despite the infamous breakfast room, I would go back there.

Good rooms, excellent free breakfast, free indoor parking, free WiFi, across the street from a groceries market, friendly staff. Notes far from train station. 15 min drive from Canada Place and Gastown.

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this to be ideally located. Not too close, not too far... from downtown. Very convenient public bus transport into the city. Convenient "underground/safe" parking. Rooms very large and attractive. Very clean, good housekeeping, fine front-desk operations.

Fine little restaurant next door. Hotel has a fine continental breakfast!

$10 cab ride to downtown Vancouver or buses easy. Stayed with adult daughter for 4 nights. 2 x double beds...small but good mattresses, comfy. Microwave in room was good addition, bathroom clean and ample space for 2 adults. Across from food store and mall...great shopping without the tourist prices ! Also fantastic shops down the street, lots of restaurants. We ate at the hotels restaurant 2 nights and the service andquality of food was very high whilst the prices reasonable.
Free continental breakfast was basic but lots of places to eat nearby.
Only drawback was the noisy air con...like a jet plane, we were told they are upgrading shortly. Because of 33.8 C temperatures we needed it and no breeze from windows. After 3rd night we got used to it....ALMOST !
Would stay again for at least 2 nights for the shopping.....local prices and great shops..IF they have replaced the air cons !!

I recently stayed at this hotel and found it to be very nice. The evening staff was very pleasant and informative. The staff during the day was efficient, and business-like not as pleasant and attentive but ok nonetheless.

The room was nicely appointed for the cost, but the toilet was awkwardly placed in my room almost like it was an afterthought and the King room was on the smallish side if 2 people were to be staying in it. The parking was *very* secure. Double gates with separate swipes were needed to get into the underground parking area.

Only the lobby has wi-fi at this time, but I was told this was going to be changing in the next few months. It was no big deal as they had Cat 5 cords for guests and Ethernet outlets in the room so it was as good as in my opinion. I'd rather fast fixed line internet vs. slow wi-fi in any case.
There was a decent breakfast during the day from what I saw (I didn't partake) and there was room service provided by a pub adjacent to the hotel. The gym had a nice view of the mountains with modern equipment.

Transit was never a problem, and the hotel is right near a shopping mall with grocery store and drug store. Car repair and tire shops are also nearby should you need them. A nice neighbourhood - definitely cleaned up the area in the last few years. I would stay here again no problem.

A great place to stay. It was clean, comfortbale and service was friendly. Parking and check-in process was good. The only problem I had was the Internet didn't work. It wasn't important, because I was not there on business and all I needed to check was my email, which I did using my BlackBerry. The lobby computer worked, but was very slow and the printer didn't work, so we were unable to print our boarding passes after checking in online for our flight back home. Overall, it was still positive and I will stay here again next time I visit.
