We arrived in Vancouver on time this morning and they herded us off the ship like herding cattle. I definitely think they know what they are doing here. We catch the train in the morning and go back to Seattle. A few days cruising around Seattle and I'm on my way home.
Arrived early morning in Vancouver after a pleasant flight with West Jet Airlines. Oh what a disastrous start to our Canadian adventure. I was pouring down rain, but in order to save money (life of a budget traveller), we decided to stick to our original plan of catching the train to our hotel. We got directions from the information lady at the …
So this morning I had to be up at 5.30am as I had to catch the 6am shuttle. I made sure I was all packed and had my clothes out so I only had to have a shower and check out in time to catch it.
It was a 3 hour flight to Vancouver and then I had to clear immigration. I caught the train to the closest stop near my hotel …
Next up, we headed down to Vancouver, made it all the way to the airport with relative ease and got rid of our shiny car. We spent the afternoon wandering around Downtown. We found Gastown and the clock which runs on steam. From there we stumbled through a really rough area full of homeless people which wasn't so good, when we reached the other …

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Uptown Hotel Vancouver
Bon hôtel à Vancouver
Les chambres étaient belles. Il y avait un frigo. Le petit déjeuner n'était pas mal du tout. Les petits pains étaient au-dessus de la moyenne. Les places de parking étaient petites. J'ai réussi à attraper un bus à deux pas pour aller facilement en centre-ville. Je n'ai vraiment pas apprécié le fait que la petite salle de gym ferme à 20h.
Le Best Western est sympa
C'est un bon choix si l'on est à la recherche d'un endroit pas cher et que l'on n'a pas besoin d'être en centre-ville. La chambre était propre et de bonne taille. Elle était au 4e étage, du côté nord, avec une belle vue sur la ville et les montagnes. Le petit déjeuner classique se résume à des céréales, des bagels, des viennoiseries mais il y a un petit café sympa et pas cher juste à côté. Le parking gratuit au sous-sol est tout à fait sûr.
Stayed here for four nights in Sep 06. Secure underground parking, however, there are more rooms than vehicle parking spaces so arrive before 7PM if you want to be sure of a parking space in the secure area (and you will need this!). All rooms have free internet (either by cable or wireless) and there is a internet station in the lobby which costs $6 an hour to use. The room was of excellent standard, very clean, everything worked etc. Breakfast was very good and free, however, the breakfast room only seats about 20 people and on three of the four mornings we had to return to our room to eat the food as there were no seats in the breakfast room. The hotel is a long walk to the SkyTrain station so you will need to get the Number 9 bus which takes about 10 minutes. The hotel has lots of convenience shops nearby as well as a large drug store. The local area is OK by day but questionable at night. Few vehicles left on the roadside at night and those that were very tatty and old. To have 100% peace of mind for your car you will need to park it in the underground car park but space is limited (see above).
Nice place to stay in Vancouver
Rooms were nice. It had a fridge. The breakfast was pretty good. The rolls were above average. The parking spots were small. I was able to catch a bus close by to get downtown easy enough. I definitely did not like that the small gym closed at 8 p.m.
The other reviews have pretty well said it all - The Great Western Uptown is excellent value for money if you don't mind not being in the City Centre
Uptown Best Western is nice
Good choice if you are looking for inexpensive accomodations and don't need to be downtown. Room was clean and a decent size. Fourth floor room on the north side had a nice view of the city and mountains. Continental breakfast is nothing more than cereal, bagels, pastry but there is a pleasant inexpensive cafe next door. Very secure underground parking is free/
Reasonable, quiet hotel
We stayed at this hotel in February. We had a top floor room and were pleased with it. The room had nice high ceilings, and lots of room and was quiet. We faced Kingsway Avenue but found it wasn't noisy. The continental breakfast included was also varied and good. The price was the best part. The location was good, nothing wrong with the area and was near where my daughter lives. Can't ask for much more.
The main positive about this hotel was the fantastic price. We booked way in advance and, as a couple, only paid about £15 a night each. Our room and bathroom were spacious and immaculate. In room facilities/accessories included a coffee maker, tv, iron and ironing board, alarm clock, phone, dataports and a small seating area with comfy seats. The bathroom was pristine with free toiletries too. Front Desk staff were friendly, providing maps and some information. You could also order room service from the adjoining restaurant for no extra cost. Across the road from the hotel is a large supermarket and a shopping mall too. Many ethnic takeaways/restaurants are nearby, be sure to get a slice pizza from across the road (only 60p a slice!). The one drawback is that you are not very close to all the action in downtown Vancouver. However we did not hire a car and did not find the distance a problem. You can walk to the Sky Train/Main Bus Terminal from the hotel in under 15 mins or catch a bus near the hotel. We even walked to Stanley Park from the hotel!.
This is my first stay at this hotel. I was debating whether or not to give this place four stars or three. I decided on three - but please read the entire review before discounting the place.
Good value unless you get stuck under the fitness room
I've stayed at this hotel twice and found it to be a great value with the exception of one thing. The last time I was there we were placed in a room UNDER the third floor fitness room. When the treadmill was in use it was thunderingly loud and distrupted our TV reception. Worse yet was that when we complained about it to the front desk we were told that it was acceptable during the fitness room hours but to be sure to call them if the noise continued after the fitness room closed (?).
They just didn't "get" that we didn't want to be disturbed by someone running on a treadmill above us whether it was BEFORE or AFTER 10:00 p.m. The hotel is clean, quaint and a good value...just make sure they don't stick you under the fitness room.
