We stayed at the Blue Horizon for 4 nights during our trip through B.C. The hotel is very well upkept. The rooms are very spacious and offer a very good standard of comfort. The bed was very comfortable. Our room also featured a fridge, tea cooker and a desk. The level of service from the hotel staff is noteworthy. They were helpful and friendly. The hotel also offers a heated spa and a couple of fitness machines. We used them pretty much every day and were very happy. The location of the hotel could not be better. It is right at Robson street, Vancouver's major shopping street. Restaurants, bars and shops are at your doorstep. The only negative experience to mention is the fact that there is no Wifi in your room, except if you bring your own laptop. Will definitely return!

Booked this hotel through the Vancouver tourist information centre and got a great rate. The rooms are absolutely massive, clean and new and in a perfect location on Robson Street, close to all shops and transport but at half the price you will pay in the West End or on Granville St. You can pretty much walk to everything from here - trains, stores, seabus, Stanley Park.
Our room had a fridge. Service was great. Small lobby but does have Internet. Will stay here again.

We headed to Vancouver BC near new years 2011. We got a great deal on a 29th floor room at the Blue Horizon. The hotel is at the end of Robson Street, a shopping district with a lot of restaurants and lounges. The room was quite comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the rooms are "corner rooms" with windows along two sides, allowing for a 180 degree view of Vancouver and the bay. The one complaint we had was the heating system; every couple of minutes a small "hiss" of steam would pop up, which made sleeping a little fitful. Otherwise, though, we had a lovely stay. Be sure to visit the Creperie (Cafe Bretanne) down the street for a great lunch or breakfast!

We stayed here for 4 nights at the very end of a three month trip to the States and Canada and loved every minute of it. We had a corner room on the 19th floor, which was extremely spacious with a balcony and lovely city views. The beds were probably the comfiest we have ever had. We didn't eat in the restaurant at all, but it seemed reasonably priced. The location is excellent as you are right on Robson Street, in the thick of everything and there are endless cafes, shops and bars nearby. We mostly walked everywhere, but one day we did hire bikes and went around Stanley Park, which was great fun, and within walking distance of the hotel (about 15 minutes I think). We thought the hotel was really good value, and the bonus was that the bus we got from our hotel in Seattle stopped right outside the Blue Horizon in Vancouver, which made it all very easy for us. The staff were very helpful and the rooms immaculated. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the highest floors to avoid traffic noise, which we couldn't hear from...
