Empire Landmark Hotel and Conference Center

Reviewed January 2, 2012

My first impression while squeezing through a dirty, narrow corridor from the urine smelling parkade was not very good. Then there was the 10 minute wait to check in. And the size of the room was smaller than usual. But it was fine after that. We had a standard room with king size bed on NYE.
Pros: Great view; good rate for a downtown hotel; good location (on Robson which is full of designed and other shops and plenty of restaurants, and a few minutes from Stanley Park); extremely comfortable bed with down-like comforter and plush pillows; clean enough for an old hotel; mini fridge and usual in room amenities; can control heat/a/c; good water pressure; real balconies (so can open door); lifts are fast; restaurant has the best views in the city; reception does provide needed info (although this makes it slow to check in); have express checkout drop box.
Cons: Small rooms; not enough receptionists for busy times and they have little decision making discretion so must check with the manager for even small things; very dodgy parking area (I would not want to be there alone) and they specified 4 times to not leave valuables in the car so I would wonder how secure it is; limited restaurant hours (closed after 10 am until dinner); no hut tub!
I wish I could give a better review as this is a "landmark". I would go there again if the price was right b/c the beds are great and that is the main thing you need. If you want a hotel room to spend time in, I would go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Harbour view or Stanley Park. The higher the better for a view.

I booked a delux room at this hotel. As a returning traveller to downtown VC, I read afew reviews, searche dthe web and booked the room. On arrival, parking at the hotel wa sprobably the wierdest experience of any. Th eunder ground parking was in the wackiest location. The room was like the rest of th ehotel, like a drabby, old undercared for operation. Everything below the waist level wa sscratched, dirty an dunkemot. The beds..had hair in the sheets. As did the tub. Must have been low on welcome baskets..

What a dismal dismal place...not coming back here anytime soo. This place is good for that unassuming asian tourist that seemed to be in ample supply looking to make the best of it as well.

Room Tip: Dont stay at this hotel if you can help it.

Very convenient hotel, most things are within walking distance. A good value for Vancouver, liked the mini fridge which we stocked from fruit and salads from Whole Foods. Excellent views from the top floor restaurant. We didn't eat there though but if you want to see the views, you can go there and walk around and then leave.

Location and price were spot on really, very convenient. Rooms were fine overall - we were there to sleep and nothing else athough they need a bit of attention - the furnishings in the bathroom were the worst of the lot.

Room Tip: Rooms high up have some nice views of the park and the bay, especially if you get good sunsets

The location is convenient to downtown which is walkable. Gaslight District is a trek, but also doable on foot. Views from the upper floors are spectacular, especially the northwest side. Sliding glass doors and small balconies. Mini-fridge. Bed was OK, not great. Amenities were minimal. The property is old and in need of some serious refurbishing. HVAC is finicky. Furnishings are showing wear. However, prices are quite reasonable and the staff very accommodating. The rather conventional breakfast buffet in the revolving restaurant on the 42 floor was enhanced by a look down at the Vancouver skyline. Lots of other hotels in the area, but none with a view to match so long as you get a room on the higher floors.

Room Tip: higher floor, northwest side

We always take the train up from Seattle every fall, and stay at the Empire Landmark. In the downtown of Vancouver it stands alone to the west, so there is an unobstructed view of the city lights, the harbors and ocean, Stanley Park, and the mountains. They offer good off-season rates, are in walking distance to shopping and restaurants, and the city has an excellent transit system.

Room Tip: We pay a little extra for the deluxe room (well worth it), and ask for the highest room possible. Th...
