Century Plaza Hotel & Spa
Ranked #47 of 92 Hotels in Vancouver
Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Location was totally central to everything if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of city amenities like shopping and sightseeing. Hotel staff were so courteous and sweet. Rooms had everything you needed. Absolute Spa is just off the hotel lobby. So beautiful. Had a couples massage and everything went perfectly. Only cons: beds won't be as fluffy as you'd like them to be -- more like hospital beds. Hallways are a tad on the small side, especially with big suitcases. Overall, you can't beat the price for the customer service and would be perfect for that quick stop over in Vancouver!

I am not always easy to please. having worked for many years in the hospitality business I have high expectations of staff and I am a bit of a clean-freak when it comes to the accomodations.
I booked at the hotel web site and chose the Beyond Business package which includes parking and one of three choices for breakfast in the Beyond Restaurant. I visited their Facebook page and in exchange for "liking" the hotel got a free double upgrade to a huge one bedroom corner suite.
As big as a one bedroom apartment probably a lot bigger than many of the new condos and wow what a view city skyline mountains and English Bay including sunsets!
A vertigo-inducing balcony and a modest clean kitchenette. Big screen TV in the living room as well as sofa and chairs and workdesk. Now this is not a new building (probably dating back to the 60s), but the decor is updated, plain but pleasant and the room was very clean in all aspects. Lots of hot water, thoughtful extras like a massaging foot bath and robes.
For the price and the absolute center of the action location this is great value.
Staff were unrelentingly pleasant, friendly and helpful. As good if not better than many 5 stars where I have paid two or more times as much!
Breakfast was good, full english or big stack of blueberry pancakes. Never got around to the giant waffle and fruit.
Even if you don't go for the package, the menu looked great -so do try breakfast.

Our room 2207 was excellent and the view was spectacular the location was central for our needs and would stay here again. The staff attended to our needs and I love their "green option" for housekeeping - more hotels should do this.

Room Tip: Room 2207 has a great view

What a deal! Our room was so spacious, we were surprised it was just a standard. We actually requested an upgrade upon our arrival because we thought what we reserved wasn't big enough but it really was not necessary. We stayed with the standard and it was perfect. We turned down housekeeping for one of our days and received a gift certificate for their restaurant. We were already given another one upon arrival so we pretty much got a free meal!

The included kitchen was very helpful, and so was the parking. We shopped around for prices and locations before coming here and it definitely cannot be beat for what you get.

We are definitely staying here again!!

Spacious room with comfortable beds. Staff very helpful. Fantastic price. Modern flat screen TV with a good selection of pay TV which is always necessary with North American hotels as North American TV channels are so hard to navigate and have adverts on more than the programme.

Room service was good quality and reasonably priced as was the breakfast, again pretty rare in North America.

The pool was adequate and surprising to find in a hotel so reasonably priced.

Location couldn't be better.

We stayed at the Century Plaza for two nights in early January. Staff was great. Suite was very comfortable for a family and the location is excellent as it is a short walk to countless restaurants, shopping, and tourist activities.

We stayed at Century Plaza for the third time over Christmas, while visiting our daughter who lives nearby but does not have room for guests. It was very spacious (we had a one-bedroom suite) and has an excellent location. Having a kitchen and room to spread out at a very good price made it our home away from home.
