“Interesting area - Room decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2009

This was our first stay at this property. Our usual favorite spots closer to BC Place were already booked up several months earlier, so we thought we'd give Comfort Inn a try. Check in went smoothly and we were offered an upgrade since they were sold out and we had booked way in advance. The one bedroom suite was spacious and had a kitchenette area (no stove top) and a seperate bedroom area. The furniture was interesting....can't really explain the decor but there were purple and orange velvet chairs and a brown couch (thought we had a photo-sorry) . This hotel is right on the fringe of a great area and a not so great area. As long as you didn't look out the bedroom window, it was good. Didn't care for the unsecured parking. Also didn't care for the lack of an express check out option. Breakfast was decent though.
For the price, you can generally find something in a better area, but obviously it depends on if there are big events....book early!

This hotel was quite decent for a 3 -star hotel. At first, we found that they put us in a tiny double room contrary to the pictures we saw when booking. Considering we were staying 14nts comfort was paramount so we were pleased when the manager moved us to another room after our complaints. However room two was right alongside some road works taking place, we were notified and given earplugs so it wasn't too bad. Still not fully satisfied as there was no fridge we told the manager again, she said that when a room becomes available she would move us somewhere better....Boy did she move us, to one of the executive suites! So I guess all the complaining and requesting really pays off. She was very polite and helpful.
Overall breakfast was a let down as there was not much variety but for that price whose complaining! Finally you get a couple of free passes for the local club nite at the Doolins pub, this should come with a warning as the doorman on one of the nights was rather rude,he thought he would take a look at us and guess what 'music' we would like and offer his unwanted recommendations to local bars! So watch out if you do not look like the style of music you like!!! Overall a good hotel, clean and comfy (in the end).

To be short: great location, the cleanest bathroom that I ever seen, and very friendly staff. The day we arrived was a birthday of our grandson. I mentioned this while I was booking. When we opened a door of our room the first thing a boy found was a balloon and beautiful gifts: an Olympic t-shirt and a mug. He was admired, so were we. Also I would like to mention a great breakfast facility, an old stylish pub, connected to hotel.

The hotel is more than what I expected from a property under the Comfort Inn brand. The rooms are well appointed and clean, plus the staff is very helpful.

Overall, the hotel is great. However, a few important things to consider that may turn some people off:

1) It's located in Vancouver's entertainment district.
2) There is a night club in the basement and pub on the main floor of the hotel. Avoid getting a room on one of the lower floors as it can be loud at night. On this trip I stayed in a room directly above the pub and found it to be too noisy as I could hear the band playing all night until the pub closed, but on other trips I stayed on higher floors and had no problems.
3) There is no fitness facility and the neighborhood isn't ideal for an evening run (it's a late night entertainment district).

Decent location - the immediate surroundings are slightly rough, but the hotel is within easy walking distance of some really nice shopping areas. The interior of the hotel was much nicer than the exterior. My room was especially cute and comfortable. Too bad about the noise - the band in the adjoining bar played until at least 1 a.m. (on a Monday night), and I could hear it quite clearly. On the plus side, the continental breakfast the next morning was ample.

Not many hotels allow five in a room, so we appreciated the Comfort Inn. If economy is more important to you than a spacious room or beautiful view, this is the hotel for you. The beds are new and comfortable, the bathroom clean and newly redone , the free breakfast is plentiful and you can sit and read the paper as long as you like, and the staff makes you feel like their most important guest. The side street, Granville, is one of the least attractive streets in Vancouver, but no one will bother you and the noise didn't reach our room on the fifth floor. The hotel staff is security conscious, and the nightclub uses a separate entrance. We walked and used Translink, there's no use for a car in this city. We had dinner at Doolin's -- the Irish Nachos were great!
