“Great Hidden Gem”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

Stayed at the Rosellen Suites on our way to the Island.
From the moment we called to reserve we were treated amazing. The staff is wonderful
The facility itself is very beautiful, two large bedrooms, living space, kitchen and dining space. Bathroom small but very clean. Steps away from the Lagoon side of Stanley Park, the Ocean Wall, Robson Street. Small off leash area for Dogs close by. The site is locked at night accessible only by a Code. Parking charge $12.50. Pet Fee $15.00 we took our dog no problem.
Will definitely stay here again

We stayed in one of the one bedroom suites at Rosellen Suites in mid-August. The staff were very helpful, the bedding, bathroom and kitchen were all in good condition and clean. Housekeeping did a wonderful job for the week that we were there. The price is also decent for the location. The neighbourhood is quiet and is close to major bus stops offering transfers to the sky train, restaurants and English Bay.

We had a wonderful suite at the Rosellen Suite. There were three adults and three children. There were 2 baths and two large bedrooms,
plus a fully equiped kitchen and a large dining room. The decor was
very well decorated, much more then we have ever seen before.
The staff was unbelieveable, what ever you asked for, they had it
there for you right away, no waiting for anything. There were three
flat TV and a sofa that made into a large bed. Their grounds are
beautiful. Just a block away from the entrance to Stanley Park.
I would recommend this place to anyone or families, they do have
weekly rates if you are planning on a long stay. You won't be disappointed!!!

If Stanley Park is your thing, the Rosellen Suites is perfectly located. It's an old apartment building converted to a hotel in 1989. Unfortunately, many of the furnishings (sofa, drapes, kitchen) in our two-bedroom suite looked like they were from 1989. The hotel is just two blocks from Dehham Street where there are myriad restaurants and a short distance from the beach on English Bay. Members of the staff were very nice and welcoming. It's quite a walk to Canada Place, Gastown, and Granville Island, but doable. For my first trip to Vancouver, I wish it had been a different hotel. It I went frequently, I might consider the Rosellen Suites again, but for a "one and only" trip, I'd do some more research on Trip Advisor!

Dear BillNdc -

Thank you for staying with Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park and for sharing your perspective on your visit. Though we can absolutely appreciate that everyone has personal preferences when they travel, it is regretful that Rosellen Suites was not specifically what you were looking for. Your advice for guests to do additional research is great advice and some additional tips particularly on what to expect from Rosellen and the area also follow:

In regards to the suites, the first thing to keep in mind is that each and every suite is unique. To help address the individual preferences of the many different guests that may consider making Rosellen their home, two very distinct types of suites are offered. It sounds like you were in one of the "Classic" Suites. These are of the original style and design and they have purposefully been kept in this style as 100's of guests that make Rosellen Suites at Stanley Park their home year after year have requested that we do so.

The "Classic" Suites are ideal for those guests that prefer a very casual homey type atmosphere where they can feel comfortable resting their feet on the coffee table. These are very family friendly suites, many are pet friendly, and a few are smoking friendly (though most are non-smoking). These suites are among the very best value in Vancouver.

For guests that prefer accommodations with a little more character, typically more contemporary in design, that feature more of the modern technologies that many can’t live without today, the “Personal-ity” Suites are available. Each of these suites has been recently re-designed with individual themes, all the amenities of the “Classic” Suites plus the added benefits of flat screen TV(s), DVD/CD player, iPod docking station and luxury bedding. For a slight additional charge, some guests find the Personal-ity Suites their perfect match. This may have been a better match for the personal preferences of this reviewer.

Regarding location, again, it is very much a personal preference. Guests specifically choose Rosellen Suites so that they can be close to Stanley Park. Many spend days exploring nothing but the park. However, for those first time guests, to walk from one end of Vancouver (West End and Stanley Park) to the other end of Vancouver (False Creek and the BC Stadium) is a 40 minute walk for the average walker. The ferry to Granville Island is a beautiful 15 minute walk along the sea wall on English Bay. Canada Place is a 15 minute walk along the waterfront of Coal Harbour. Gastown is a 25 minute walk. The main shopping area on Robson is a 15 minute walk.

The nearest bus top is 2 blocks from the hotel and a taxi to and from anywhere in the downtown area is $8-10. Many people enjoy walking to their destination in one direction and then take a taxi back to the hotel.

Besides being next to the park, one of the advantages for many guests is that the hotel is a short distance from all the best Vancouver has to offer but is nestled in a very quiet residential neighbourhood close enough to easily enjoy it all but far enough away not to be disturbed by the high traffic and noise typically found in a city center hotel.

We do hope that you will choose to stay with us again and highly recommend trying a Personal-ity Suite. Call us directly for a special upgrade rate on your next visit to Vancouver. Thanks, again, for taking time to share your experience.

The Rosellen Suites is a really good hotel located in the West End of Vancouver.
At first, we arrived in the hotel that is in an old building and was kinda surprised, but the hotel from the inside was really clean, comfortable and had large rooms.
The staff at the hotel is very friendly and accommodating, gave us ton of info about the city.
The hotel is located on Stanley park, a really big park in the city, the Vancouver aquarium is there and its really nice to take a walk or cycle on the sea wall, surrounding the park.
The only "bad" thing I have to say about this hotel is that it's a bit far from downtown Vancouver, but is located on a main street with access to bus lines that take you straight downtown in 15 min. We'll be back at this hotel on our next vaca in Vancouver!

Review for Trip Advisor of Rosellen Suites

My husband and I stayed at Rosellen Suites from 16th – 22nd July 2011. We already knew that it was an older apartment block, so that did not come as a surprise. Any negatives due to this were definitely outweighed by the plusses – namely friendliness of the staff, its location, and size of apartment. I would say though that the windows really do need replacing – in our suite we were unable to close them fully. The kitchen had everything one needed to cook a meal – the full oven was very useful and the dishwasher much appreciated. The housekeeping staff kept the apartment clean, and they too were very friendly. As our stay at Rosellen was at the start of a 3 week holiday we really appreciated being able to use the laundry at the end of the week. Washing powder is available from reception in reasonable size packets so you don’t have to buy the huge boxes on sale in the supermarket!

Located only a few minutes walk from Stanley Park, in a quiet leafy street, restaurants, banks and supermarkets are close by (about a 7 minute walk), on Denman Street. You can also catch buses to Downtown from there, and they are pretty frequent. If you prefer to use foot power then Canada Place is a 25-30 minute walk away. English Bay beach is a 10 -15 minute walk from the hotel.

We ate in most of the time in the evenings, but we did splash out on a visit to the Fish House in Stanley Park – expensive but well worth it, and the service was excellent.

Reception staff were extremely helpful, and when we had a problem with the bathroom washbasin it was fixed the same day. We had more or less given up on being able to visit Victoria and the Buchardt Gardens on a day trip without spending a fortune or getting up incredibly early, but the staff researched our options, discussed them with us and booked our preferred option for us. Taking a sea-plane for the outward journey, and returning by ferry worked well for us (sea-planes leave every 15 minutes from the dock which is within walking distance, so there is a good choice of flight times), giving us plenty of time to explore Victoria before catching the coach (already booked) to the Buchardt Gardens, where we had 2½ hours to look around before picking up the coach again for the onward trip to the ferry terminal.

Being from the UK we Brits do love our cup of tea in bed in the mornings, so an apartment such as that at Rosellen Suites suited us very nicely. Our next two weeks were spent on a Cruise and Land Tour to and in Alaska, but boy did we miss our little kitchen at Rosellen and our morning cup of tea in bed, not to mention in the 4* pre-cruise hotel, where there was only a $30 breakfast on offer!

We would certainly recommend Rosellen to other travellers – don’t go there expecting a modern glamorous hotel and you won’t be disappointed. Instead enjoy the friendly helpfulness of the staff and the large, comfortable suites in a lovely area of Vancouver.

Room Tip: Room tip:- Try and get an apartment at the front of the building. The street is quiet and the view...

My wife, son and I just returned from spending a week at the Rosellen Suites and found nothing to complain about and everything to praise. The location of the hotel in Vancouver's West End less than a block from Stanley Park was ideal. We had never visited the city and heard positive things about it so decided to give it a try. The hotel's location was perfect. Every day we were out walking in Stanley Park and throughout the downtown. Our suite had no problems and was quite comfortable and clean, with a nice view of the mountains as well. The staff was so helpful and friendly, we could not believe it, had never experienced anywhere such courtesy and willingness to provide us with tips about places to see, restaurants to choose from, nearby places to rent bicycles, best ways to get where we wanted to go, a useful way to see Victoria that saved us plenty of time and enabled us to see more while there on a day trip. Tag, Kent and Ken at the front desk always made time for us and provided us with sightseeing options that we had not been aware of. If there was an award for best Vancouver hotel staff, their friendliness, practical suggestions, and helpful overall approach would make them the unquestionable winners. They also communicated with us before arrival to see if we needed any additional sightseeing details. The housekeeping staff kept our room clean. In significant degree due to the friendliness of the staff and location of the hotel, we came away with a very positive experience in Vancouver and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: We stayed in a fourth-floor suite with two bedrooms and reserved it more than a month in advance, wh...
