“Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed at the beautiful Granville Island Hotel and it never disappoints! Bright, clean and super comfortable. Amazing views over to the lights of Yaletown. The staff members at GIH are so attentive, and Blessie (front desk) is pure gold. With the market just a few steps away, this has to be one of the most appealing year-round venues in Vancouver.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Granville Island Hotel Both times we had the Executive Suite on the main floor. It is wonderful and the staff were totally incredible. The view was wonderful overlooking False Creek and the lights. We were early and the staff looked after our luggage and put it in our room when it was ready. A definite place to go back to. The restaurant serves fantastic meals and the staff there are always so knowledgeable and friendly.

The hotel is located in a lovely scenic area facing the harbor and views of Vancouver. However, if you want a beautiful room on the water, be ready for some very loud music from a private event in the dining area that would wake the dead. Lovely hotel, but the management has no concern for their hotel visitors, a lousy band is more important than a peaceful nite. A very sorry situation to say the least, "I will never stay here again, nor recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was our third stay at this hotel and just as satisfying as our previous stays. The location is excellent, with so much activity accessible in the immediate area. We had wonderful meals at the hotel and on the island, and especially enjoyed Edible Canada and exploring the Public Market.

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a view from our room on the upper floor, toward the False Creek area of the buildi...

My husband and I stayed for a night at the Granville Island Hotel. Wow what a fabulous view we had from our room.When we arrived we up graded to a superior room, a little pricey, but worth every penny!! Our room had a 180 degree view of the city and the water. Our room was large as was the bathroom. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is a great place to stay and check out the island. You can just park your car there and walk to everything there is to see on the island. Great stores and restaurants.

We ended a 4 month camping holiday by staying at the Granville Island Hotel. We were still pulling our trailer so required accommodations for parking. Both the hotel staff and Granville island administration and security provided friendly, efficient solutions and service. Our room was super clean and had a GREAT view of the harbour. We had breakfasts 2 days in the restaurant and again were greeted by staff and waiters/waitresses that went out of their way to provide a positive relaxing experience. And...the food was terrific! We totally enjoyed being able to walk to shops and the public market on the island as well as access bike paths to travel further. We loved the friendly, welcoming, 'homey' experience while being able to participate in city experiences!

Room Tip: Not sure rooms have the fabulous view of the water that ours did, so I would request that when booki...

Ok, so I booked it because I saw shops nearby where I could send my wife to while I checked out the micro-brewery on the premises. Unfortunately our rushed schedule didn't allow for either, so next time I'm in Van that's where we're going again. We did get one awesome walk along the boardwalk at night enjoying the boats and lights..... Clean, great front desk staff. Worth the extra coin to not navigate downtown or be stuck by the airport.
