“Old but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Very nice and helpful staff. Hotel could use a renovation, but overall not too bad. We were on the 11th floor. The rooms were clean but dated. For the price we paid is an excellent value. Close to Stanley Park and to Downtown close to all amenities. We did not go to the restaurant on the 25th floor, but I think the view will be splendid. Lots of shopping and restaurants around the hotel. I would stay there again.

I spent four nights here in March 2013 to attend a conference at another hotel nearby. The Empire represents good value and an excellent location for anyone visiting Downtown Vancouver. Its on Robson Street which is the heart of the shopping district and is four blocks (about 10 minutes walk) from the Bayshore.
The rooms are basic and some are in need of an update, but given the location and price its well worth it.

I think this was a "good deal" hotel. Centrally located to shopping and just a few minute walk to beautiful English Bay. This hotel was clean, bed was adequate, and the view from my 36 floor was wonderful and expansive (180 unobstructed view of the city, and the ocean). I have to say the room was noisy as it howled with the wind through out the night (I must say it was very windy that night). Overall, this hotel was a great value at $87 with the taxes. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. When I checked in, they told me I would get an upgrade, "triple upgrade" he said. The room had a coffee maker, a fridge and a sink. The shower was good, I usually find Vancouver water pressure to be a bit on the anemic side, but this room seemed to have that extra little burst of power to make the shower enjoyable. the bathtub was longer than most hotel bathtubs which made it nice to have a bath. They even gave me complimentary bubble bath with my room. Very nice touch. The property is on the older side, and could use a make over... But overall, it was a bargain if you consider the location.

Room Tip: Try and find the room with that ends in 01. In other words.. you want to be facing West. or North...

Nice hotel, good location. Rooms were clean, if a little basic, could do with a little more storage space. Great views, especially from the restaurant. Reception were helpful with booking taxis and giving information.

Central location and great view for affordable prices. You overlook the whole city with harbour and Englisch bay, breakfast is served in the roof top restaurant, which also has a lounge area (don´t miss to see Vancouver by night!). The rooms are just standard, nothing special, but clean and o.k. Walking distance to almost every sight seeing spot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view

I stayed here for New Year's weekend, and was very happy about being close to Stanley Park, the waterfront, 005 Robson buses, Burrard Station, a Safeway, and a million restaurants. The service was also very professional, and the front desk was ready to take on what admit to be many requests by my group. The room itself was about average, with the best feature being the small outdoor patio and spectacular view of the Vancouver skyline. I would recommend this hotel for business guests who want a fine central location without paying an arm and a leg.

Room Tip: Rooms facing North or East will have best views.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Empire Landmark for 2 nights during a spontaneous trip to Vancouver from Seattle. Considering we booked the hotel 12 hours before we arrived and got a nice discount on Expedia, we were satisfied with the accommodations and thought we got what we paid for. It's by no means luxurious, but it's not priced to be. The room is average size with dated features, but it's clean and we had a spectacular view of downtown from our room. The hallways are small, and the elevator to the parking garage seems a bit sketchy, but again, decent for what we paid for. Also, nice location as it is walking distance to downtown, Granville, Davie street, etc meaning you don't have to spend all your time in the room.
