“What Great Hotel is all about”
Reviewed December 30, 2009

My reservation was made for me as I was part of a Conference Group so not having heard of the hotel I wanted to ensure the business facilities I needed were there.From the moment I arrived until the time I left the entire experience was "Outstanding". All the staff came across as genuinely enjoying their jobs, plenty of smiles, nothing a problem , engaged ( key behaviour) in genuine conversation and were similar to Cathay Pacific cabin crew, helpful and attentive with a smile. This hotel would give a lot of the big brand hotels some lessons in service. To round it off I misplaced an engraved pen and discoverd I had left it at the hotel when an email arrived to let me know they had found it. It was mailed and arrived in due course. It just goes to show that with the right culture and environment people excel . The Loden was outstanding. Ray Bigger Singapore

My wife and I stayed here in late November, and it was a great place to stay. Nicely decorated rooms and the staff was very pleasant. Can't beat it at what I paid, which was 135 a night! On quiet street in Vancouver, close to Skytrain as well! I would recommend this hotel for sure! Just take your lumps and pay for valet parking, it is worth it and is secure.

Upon arrival at the hotel, the concierge greeted us immediately and offered to help with the bags etc. The hotel lobby was stunning, as were the rooms. The staff were very attentive and helpful.

We went to the hotel restaurant Voya for dinner. It was very nice and modern, but very noisy and for us older folk, bring a flashlight to read the menu. I had wild salmon, basil & goat's cheese ravioli, sauce vierge. The portion was very small for $27 and the fish was overdone. Bottles of wine started at about $50. I thought this restaurant was outrageously overpriced and poor value for what you get.

The issue I had with the hotel, was the attention to detail. The bathroom counter was dirty and the toilet paper holder was falling off the wall. The biggest issue for me was the noise of the elevator. I woke early in the morning and couldn't get back to sleep, because I was fixated on the vibration and noise of the elevator that would occur every 30 seconds or so. The sound of the air conditioner that came on from time to time, was somewhat similar to that of a plane starting its engines.

So yes, the hotel was nice, but for a 5 star hotel, I would expect more especially when it comes to the mechanical noise heard in the room.

I spent 4 days at the Loden mid October and was rather happy to have chosen the hotel. Service is top notch as I had experienced in other Kor properties. The hotel is rather new (maybe just over a year or so), so rooms are very modern and comfy (great bathroom with separate bath and power shower, first class beauty products), great bed, tv with surround sound also in the bathroom. My room had lake views, which were partially obstructed by other buildings. They have a trendy bar and a restaurant (very good breakfast, small menu), and the staff is quite attentive and not pushy for any additional service. This area of town is very modern and very convenient for business, but the hotel is also close to one of the main shopping streets (Robson) and plenty of restaurants (Joe Fortes is really good for seafood!). Staying at the Loden is very convenient for sightseeing, and Vancouver is indeed a very beautiful city. I will definitely stay here again when I come back.

If you have business anywhere between Burrard and Denman this new Hotel offers a great location. It is on a quiet street was only a short two blocks for me down to the seawall and very close to the Burrard Skytrain. Some of there fixtures are more form than function, including a bathroom sink and clock radio that are poor designs but the bathroom spout was one of the coolest things I have seen.

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. I could go on and on about it, but I'm not as eloquent as the previous advisors!

We were blown away by the service, the quality and the location of this hotel. The staff were outstanding, the room huge and beautiful and any room where I can sit in the deep bath/tub and still see the television AND hear it because of speakers in the bathroom is pretty impressive! The separate toilet is great, the bathroom wall opened up to the bedroom area, which was nice, and the sofa in the corner of the room was just great for lounging and reading by lamp light.

The access to the business center was a nice touch and as we had a lot of things to organise for the rest of our holiday it was much appreciated!

Great location, beautiful room, wonderful staff- if you need to stay in Vancouver you can't go past the Loden.
