I have just returned from a trip to Vancouver visiting my brothers for a golf trip. One brother lives in Vancouver the other Toronto. 2 of us stayed at the Granville hotel as thought it would be central and allow us easily to visit with our brother who lived across the harbour. This was the case as we were close the harbour taxi. A great way to get around. The room at the hotel was clean and had a partial view of the water. Very nice view. The 3 of us had our first dinner there and were not impressed by the service. It was very slow,, The food when it came was very good. Breakfast although a little better required my brother to order tea from 2 staff members approximately 20 minutes wait before it came to him. We had poor response in the lounge as well. We took an evening walk and went to lounge for a coffee and brandy. The bartender could not locate coffee mugs. We ended up with 2 different style and colour of mugs. He had to leave to find them. They could have been staff member mugs just cleaned for us, I'm not sure but certainly wasn't what we expected of a hotel of this apparent quality. I'm not sure if I return that I would give this rather pricey hotel a second chance. Location is great, rooms nice, but not special, service in restaurant ,,,,,terrible.
