Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Downtown Vancouver
Very helpful and pleasant front desk staff. Centrally located with easy access to shops and bars/restaurants. Nice, clean rooms. There was some room to room noise but this is standard for a mid priced hotel in a big city. Couldn't hear much noise from the nightclub downstairs.
Great Place for less money!
Wonderful room, bright, nice bathroom, comfortable beds! Great location...just a couple blocks from nice stores, theatre, fun bars/pubs...you can walk to just about everything from the hotel's location. I thought the value for the money we paid for excellent.
Good value, well-presented, slightly dodgy area
The hotel itself is very nice. Clean rooms, well decorated, nice staff. The free breakfast was an unexpected perk. I didn't have a problem with noise from the pub next door or the across the street as I was on the top floor. I chose this hotel because it's 2 blocks south of Robson Street. What I didn't realise is that nearby Granville Street was not so nice. Next door to the hotel is some kind of hostel. On the street there were lots of shady characters roaming the area, adult entertainment shops, etc. Every other street in the area is fine. What we ended up doing was walking one block over to a parallel street and walk from there. I would probably stay there again, because it's actually conveniently located and a good deal. Just be aware of the area.
While passing through Vancouver we stayed here for a night with our dog. Yes, this is a pets welcome hotel :) However, due to its downtown location, we were hard pressed to find any green space to walk the dog, not that you'd really want be hanging out after 9pm anyway. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to walk the dog outside alone!The value of the hotel is great, for being downtown! We were impressed at the rate ($89 CAN) for its location! And it is really safe, despite the pub downstairs, which is quite noisy for quite late and then of course you have all the drunk people around outside at night. However if you are inside your hotel room it's completely safe! You can't even access the different floors without inserting your room key into the elevator first. Totally safe :) Plus all night long they have a security officer inside the entrance of the hotel. That made us feel really safe too.The rooms are really nice. A bit on the small side, but really modern and well furnished! The bathroom is really big too!
Cool Clean Comfort
Cool decor, very clean. Room not as large as elsewhere but great bathroom. Bit noisy when club in action! Pub - great food Good location - sights all easy walking distance
The old Dakota
This used to be the Hotel Dakota. I've stayed here many times, because they are within walking distance to the Comodore (a live event venue).
They catered mostly to the night club crowd and went for the 'hip' party atmosphere (incl. condoms in a basket by the bed), they have since 'grown up' a little. I do miss the extra perks you used to get (the old owners owned nearby clubs and restaurants and you could get in as a VIP and get discounts). The staff is always great and friendly.
The rooms and hallways are cleaner than the spendier hotels on Granville. It is an old hotel, so bear in mind that the connecting doors between rooms are thin (which can be hilarious or annoying depending on who is next door). On weekends, it will be noisy with the club downstairs and the police sirens common in this area. Great choice for location if you aren't going to be sleeping much anyways.
The "music" from the bar next door and/or pub downstairs made it impossible to sleep until well after 2am. We also weren't told about the $12.00 parking fee until check out time. Hotel is clean and in a good location but I wouldn't stay there again. Do your research first!
4 Star Quality, 3 Star Prices
I recently stayed at this hotel, and boy was I impressed. I've stayed at several Comfort Inns before, and this is definitely the nicest. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The decor was very trendy with lots of bright colors. The staff continually went out of their way to recommend local attractions and restaurants--providing service that I found to be better than many four star hotels. Each time I entered the hotel, I was kindly greeted, often by name! Next time I'm in Vancouver, I know where I'm staying!
Stayed here twice, once for 4 nights, then a month later for 2 nights.
A bit noisy on Saturday nights (maybe it was the Olympic announcement or the new 4am liquor laws). The 1st room we stayed in was more quiet as it backed onto the backpacker hostel next door. The 2nd room was on the street side and therefore noisier. There was a slight mix up with the internet booking originally, but the staff were very nice about it.
In fact all the staff were really pleasant. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Although we were put in a smoking room both times (even though had requested non-smoking - internet booking issue), you could not really tell that they were smoking rooms. The location was quite good, but still had to pass by many beggars on the way to most downtown attractions. Would stay there again though! The pub downstairs was pretty good too!
Hot little hotel, great location close to shopping and sites. Totally remodeled into a funky 'Yaletown' boutique. Bright colours, warm staff. Free breakfast in the pub was cozy.

I've never flown on an Asian carrier before, so I was a little unsure what to expect. I was most concerned that on the 11.5 hour trip to Shanghai that it would only show Chinese films dubbed into English. However, the aircraft was new and I had more choices of movies than at Silvercity, Victoria! It was a beautiful takeoff on this cold December day …
... even from Richmond itself, along with the great salmon and other locally sourced ingredients. You now have excellent chefs, clientele with both time and money, fresh ingredients, and stiff competition. This meeting of circumstances lead to what many consider to be the best Cantonese cuisine in the world.
That means, that for the 1 1/2 days I will be in Vancouver on this short visit, I have plans to pack in some great food.

Quelques jours, voitures et conversations sympathiques plus tard, nous étions rendus à Penticton, un petit village au pied des montagnes colombo-britannique. C'est alors que nous avons rencontré d'autres cueilleurs (dans chaque village, il suffisait de se rendre à la buanderie pour en rencontrer des tonnes) qui nous ont alors dit que la récolte des cerises était vraiment mauvaise cette année due à une ...
