“Great stay for reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

In all this boutique hotel proved to be a good stay. Nice clean, roomy accommodations located on the east end of Granville Island, adjacent to the water. Rambling corridors with a rather unconventional layout in keeping with the prevailing industrial/artistic architecture of this unique neighbourhood. Our room had a good view of the channel and the marine traffic including a tug with barge in tow manoeuvring at two o'clock in the morning. Nice walkable attractions close by including the Granville Island market, several bistros, restaurants and micro breweries. The only negative items noted with the room was the spotty complementary wifi and the slight musty odour which initially necessitated having the window open. Otherwise a good experience and do intend to stay there again.

We stayed here after my husband's company Christmas party. We brought our dog and had a lovely time. Food at restaurant was excellent! Vast improvement from a few years ago. Room was very clean, warm and bed and bedding so comfy. Tiny balcony with chairs and table looking out onto False Creek would be nice to use in warmer seasons. Our dog loved late night and early morning walks on the island and a nice baked treat from the local bakery. Best surprise was the QUIET. It felt like we were at a cottage, the room was so peaceful. We are definitely staying here again soon!

Room Tip: Our dog friendly room facing False Creek was lovely!

We only spent one night at this hotel but were pleasantly surprised with this property.
Our room was very spacious, clean and modern.
The bathroom was also spotless and had an awesome shower.
All staff members were extremely courteous and helpful.
We'll certainly come back to this hotel on our next visit to Vancouver !!!

My husband and I were visiting Vancouver for a few days and had never stayed at the Granville Island Hotel before. So we thought with this trip we would give the hotel a try. Well, what a good idea we had! Wonderful location, terrific concierge staff, attentive dining room staff, and a hotel that we will definitely return to again and again. I also want to thank the concierge for their genuine concern when it came to some of the other guests staying in the hotel. If the parents of those guests saw how their children (young adults of drinking age) were behaving they would have been appalled. But please note that we DO NOT hold the hotel responsible. When I made my complaints about the other guests the next morning the hotel immediately took down all of the details, were genuinely concerned and upset that we did not enjoy a peaceful night's sleep and made every effort to compensate us. My husband and I want to thank them again for treating us kindly. Know that this is a hotel in a beautiful location, with great dining, close to so many amenities, and staff who treat you with care. We will be back.

Took advantage of a Living Social deal just after New Year's and had a wonderful experience.

The hotel was quiet and check in was fast and pleasant with friendly staff. Our room was nicely appointed with vaulted ceilings and wooden slatted blinds for the windows. Bathroom was clean with a nice big glass shower (no tub), great sink, and Spa Utopia bath products. Our king bed was super comfortable as well, making for a good night's sleep.

Guest parking was very safe and convenient and the location of the property can't be beat if you're visiting Granville Island. It's nicely tucked away on the edge of the island and within easy walking distance to the market, restaurants, theatres, and walking paths along False Creek. Also enjoyed the view of False Creek and the marina from the onsite restaurant.

We weren't able to spend more time at the hotel unfortunately, but the one evening we did have was very enjoyable and a nice surprise.

We have stayed here a few times and love it. We stay the night, go to Theater Sports, have an amazing breakfast overlooking the water in the Hotel's restaurant, do some shopping on the Island and generally just relax. We live locally, and this is our "go to" Hotel.

Room was clean and comfortable, front desk staff are some of the best I have ever come across and view of water was amazing.

We spent one night at the Granville Island Hotel using a Living Social coupon. The hotel is spotless, beautifully furnished and the staff was helpful and cordial. We had a delicious brunch at the restaurant overlooking the water. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the Public Market and Improv Show we attended that was part of the Living Social deal. We have already recommended this hotel to our friends.
