“The Penthouse Suite-Best In Vancouver!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Upon entering this grande suite, I knew my husband and I were going to have a magnificent weekend. Skyhigh ceilings with panoramic windows overlooking the ocean adorned with royal drapery, an absoulutely massive deck that wrapped around front and side of suite, gorgeous Rosewood style cabinetry, stainless steel full kitchen, inviting living area, large lovely dining area, all topped with gas fireplace. The masterbedroom was equipped with an enormous in room jet tub clearly built with luxury in mind. Room service for breakfast on both mornings was very quick, scrumptuous and filling! The suite is incredible, an absolute must for Honeymooners, anniversaries, birthdays or as a Grand Gift for those who have everything. We have stayed in many hotel suites in Vancouver, but by far, this is our favorite if you want a luxurious getaway, Granville Island Hotel Penthouse Suite should be your first choice. It most certainly is ours now!

I have stayed at the hotel a number of times this year and in the past and always found the experience to be excellent. Apart from its location which is near the family business in Kits and indeed my Canadian family, the atmosphere is so friendly and great value in monetery terms.

Very highly recommended!

Our second stay at Granville Island Hotel 1 - 6 June 2012 (previously stayed Jan/Feb 2009).
Lovely room and facilities (I enjoyed the hot tub), housekeeping staff were great.
Reception staff really good this trip. Thanks for the Green Tea and sorting out the TV.
Bar and waiting staff in general were excellent. Thanks for the tips on wine and food, enjoyed your selection. Love the patio furniture. Thanks for the lift to the bus stop.
Hotel has a perfect location on Granville Island, still in the midst of things to do and places to go but in a quiet backwater for a bit of peace and relaxation.
Spent more time this trip on and around the Island hopping on buses for longer journeys.
Whale watching tour was really good and right on the doorstep, well the other side of the island.
Excellent Greek restaurant within walking distance.
Hotel food excellent and good value, especially the breakfast.
We will be back.

Room Tip: If you have a preference ie bath not shower then ask before you book. If you want a view of the wat...

Granville Island is a short water taxi ride away from Vancouver and the views of the city from the hotel are stunning. My husband and I spent four days last week and could not have been happier. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful every time. We had a corner room with a small balcony and a gorgeous view of the city. The room was clean and well appointed. We saw no signs of wear or air conditioning difficulties previous reviews mentioned. In fact, we loved our room and staying in a quiet, beautiful place after busy days. Granville Island has a fantastic market and wonderful shops and restaurants. It is a 20 minute walk from Bard on the Beach. We saw The Merry Wives of Windsor which was fantastic! We rented bicylcles from the property for the day and they were very good. We spent the day riding the sea wall around Vancouver and exploring Stanley Park. The outdoor patio at the hotel is perfect for a meal or a relaxing drink or coffee. They have lovely padded chairs and couches and overlook the water and Vancouver. I highly recommend this place if you like boutique hotels and are looking for a city experience without the hustle and bustle.

Only spent one night at GI Hotel, but the rooms were comfy (a bit tight) and well decorated. The restaurant was awesome. I was in a room near the side entrance, so could hear everything going on outside, so that was a bit annoying. Being close to the shops at Granville Island was the best.

Very pleasant stay. We paid a little extra for one of the larger, corner rooms which was nicely furnished, well-designed and comfortable, with a lovely view over the water. There are nice strolls from the hotel, along the banks of False Creek and Downtown is only a short taxi or bus journey away. There are plenty of restaurants nearby but we ate at the hotel restaurant all three nights as the food is generally good and the view over the water another inducement. Checking in and out was painless. We thought hotel bike hire - although not used - was a nice touch (although perhaps unsuitable for families as there is only one size/type of cycle). All in all, five stars.

Very nicely located with water on one side and a busy, interesting market on the other. There are lots of places to walk a dog if you have one. Valet service for a nominal fee otherwise it could be a difficult place to find parking. Check-in service was pleasant and quick. Our room which contained a King sized bed was quite a bit smaller than I had expected for the price. We ate dinner at the restaurant and found the service to be a bit slow. We were also shocked when the waiter commented at the end of our meal that he was happy we had finished as he could now go home because he felt really ill. This is not the kind of thing you want to hear at the beginning of a holiday. We enjoyed a quiet night of rest in a very comfortable bed. Checkout was efficient.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay.

Just to clarify, Valet parking is complimentary for hotel guests. Parking is $12.00 plus tax which equals $16.26 including the GVRD and HST.
Also Valet services are only available on the weekends

Cheers,
