Stayed here in February for a trade show across the street. The room was excellent with a spectacular view of the waterfront. Loved watching the aviation and marine traffic. Came dragging back from the event each night to settle at the bar for a reward. Nice exposure to the street. The bartender was one of the most genuine good guys...

Very clean and hygienic. Pleasing and greeting staff. Delicious foods for all religions' followers. Love to live again if I get a chance. Waterfront view is amazing and it adds to elegance. Nearby shopping Malls help to get anything one can need and desire.

This is a nice hotel in a great location down by the cruise ship dock and walking or jogging distance around the bay to Stanley Park, with a really interesting series of pictorial plaques on the route explaining the history of the area and some of its colorful characters. My room was not on the side with the nice views,...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
