“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

A nice old building, outside and in. Don't forget to pose outside like Clark Kent as this was used for the Daily Planet in Smallville

“Beautiful decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you enjoy architecture this building has it all. We learned from a walking tour that it was modeled on the empire state building. The lobby is really stunning. Take the elevator to the second floor to get a different perspective.

“Stunning Architecture”

The restored Marine Building is breath-taking, inside and out. Research its history and visit the lobby, you won't be disappointed.

Just plain beautiful - the details throughout and the style! It's not a super-attraction but very worth seeing if you like history, art deco or architecture.

“Cool Building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

If you like old architecture you will really like this building.

Real Art Deco, in the middle of Vancouver. Used on the series Smallville as The Daily Planet. (Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster would be proud).

I can't get over the cute elevators.
