After studying tripadvisor for some time we decided to make the best of our single-night stay in Vancouver by booking the Granville Island Hotel and we were not let down. The hotel is located as close to the water as you can get without falling in. Its a bit old and some of the furnishings and fabrics in the room showed their age, but its clean and quiet and the mattress was comfortable. All the rooms have some view of the water and although they are small and expensive it is worth it.
The valet will help you find a spot for your car and the hotel gives you the required window permit that will allow your car to remain parked for more than the 3 hours the law allows. Parking on Granville Island is hard but once you park you certainly do not need your car again on the Island and you can easily grab a jitney boat that will take across the water to downtown Vancouver in a matter of minutes.
The restuarant in the hotel is quite nice and despite its "brewery" designation is much more of a full menu than you might expect.
