Generally I find hotel accomodation in Vancouver to be problematic. Its over-priced and inadequate. Planning a 5 night stay in Vancouver to visit friends and family I initially booked a single room at a Holiday Inn at $169 a night. I changed this to the Landis because I could get a 2 bedroomed suite for roughly the same cost. I was not disappointed.
The accomodation is of a decent standard. Pretty clean although a bit frayed around the edges. The beds were not great I have to say - hard and somewhat "flat" and still using the good old brown hotel blanket rather then a comforter. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and full size 'fridge. Plenty of closet space, good shower, 3 TVs, a DVD player. Apart from the beds it was fine. Housekeeping was prompt and efficient.
The breakfast was good by Canadian hotel standards - nothing hot but plenty of pastries and yogurt, cereal etc.
There is a coin-operated laundry and the pool and fitness area were fine too.
Overall I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were helpful when you needed them but unobtrusive otherwise which I like. The key cards were a bit of a hassle but nothing that ruined my day and parking ($14 a day) good. I liked that you could access the rooms straight from the garage. It was also very well sound-proofed from other guest noise (although to be fair the hotel was pretty empty when we were there) Location is good - walking distance to everything you may need.
