    This place was great, right in the heart of downtown, walking distance to Stanley Park, beautiful views, big rooms, comfortable atmosphere, clean, friendly staff, and on the Trolley line so easy to reach other destinations like Granville Island or Chinatown. Highly recommended and reasonably priced compared to other hotels we looked at in the area.

    Great location on Robson St

    We loved our stay at the Blue Horizon! The location is ideal, at Robson and Bute in downtown Vancouver - with a row of Korean restaurants right outside the hotel. There's also a JJ Beans and BC liquor store right around the corner, along with a lovely little 24-hr bakery across the corner. We had a room overlooking Robson and had a good time people watching from the balcony. :)

    Lovely room. Big corner room (think they all are). Staff were really friendly, and helpful, when I was having problems with my lost luggage. Views from the 28th floor balcony were really nice, and the bed was HUGE, and amazingly comfortable. Room was spotless too. Only one negative point...the hotel does say it's 100% Non-Smoking, but most would assume, it would be ok to smoke on the balcony, this is not the case. On arrival, I was told that smoking on the balcony was not allowed, and a $250 cleaning charge would be added if I did. That's all ok, but I wish they would make this clear on their website. I picked that hotel especially because they had balconies. Was still very pleased with the place though! Oh and the internet was free! I really think all hotels should have free wi-fi in this day and age!!!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Horizon Hotel Vancouver

    Excellence

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel on several occassions, and have also introduced friends. Each and every one has loved the hotel and all it has to offer. Views, resturant and area are very good. Price is not one you can beat. Will be there again and again. Clean with excellent service.

    Highly Recommended

    from

    My husband and I book this hotel each time we are in Vancouver. The balconies provide breathtaking views and photography opportunites. We travel quite a bit, and have always enjoyed this hotel.

    Couldn't ask for more

    from

    I thought the Blue Horizon was wonderful. The parking garage was very convenient and the rates weren't bad, considering how much it costs to park around town. The location on Robson Street makes it easy to walk to shops, restaurants, etc. Service was polite and understated. The rooms are clean and HUGE. The windows offer an excellent view. I plan to stay there again. It's a great deal.

    LOVED IT!! ONE OF THE BEST HOTELS IN BC

    from

    I have been to Vancouver many times and stayed at different hotels numerous times..Blue Horizon hotel would have to be one of the best hotels ever..we stayed on the 26th floor and from our balcony we could see the whole vancouver area..it was beautiful..the rooms were nice and clean and it was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at.. A+++++

    Great Hotel

    from

    We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Horizon Hotel. Our room was very large with a private balcony and a beautiful view of the bay. The staff was kind, chearfull and willing to help with our questions. We had a wonderful meal with great service and food at the restaurant in the hotel. We will highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Vancouver.

    Fire Alarm

    from

    The rooms are nice, but one morning about 2:30 AM a rowdy crowd in front of the hotel woke me up. From my room, I noticed yelling, shoving, and cars darting in and out of the hotel parking entrance. About 20 minutes later the hotel fire alarm went off and we all piled into the street. Apparently, someone in the crowd had vandalized a sprinkler head in the garage. Since the garage entrance is immediately adjacent to the front desk, I wondered why the night staff hadn't been more diligent and called the police earlier, quite possibly avoiding the fiasco of hundreds of people evacuating the hotel at 3:00 AM. Hotel management informed me that they weren't in the habit of using the local police for hotel security issues. Right: We certainly don't want to bother the police in the middle of the night! Okay, so what about the hotel's own security staff?. Well, apparently they couldn't be bothered either. And don't get me started on the inept wait staff in the coffee shop. Stay away.

    Wouldn't recommend it!!

    from

    My husband and I went to Vancouver for our honeymoon, and stayed at the Blue Horizon. (recommended to us by travel agent)

    Upon arrival, we were double booked. Had to explain to front desk staff that in fact, we only wanted 1 room...

    We placed the "do not disturb" sign on the door, and went out for dinner...Got back to hotel, and room service had been in the room (we had valuable stuff in suitcases that did not fit in the room safe), and had taken away our sign...

    We cancelled the last night of our stay (left Vancouver early), and received a $191.53 charge for "not having cancelled early enough"

    I tried to explain the situation to mgmt (flight was changed...gave 12 hours notice instead of 24), and they would do nothing about it. The customer service at this hotel leaves huge amounts to be desired. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Blue horizon hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Blue Horizon hotel only a few weeks ago. The rooms are very spacious with an amazing view of the city and mountains from the balcony. I found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Moreover, it is right on the main shopping street Robson Street, Vancouver's "Oxford Street". You can't be more centrally located, only CAD$20 from the airport by cab. Highly recommended.

    Good location, nice rooms

    from

    We stayed here in May, 2001 and found this to be a very good value for the money. The rooms were very spacious and furnished in soft colors that were very pleasant. They are larger than standard hotel rooms. Spring for a room on one of the upper floors, the views from the balcony are wonderful. Contrary to the other reviewer's experience, we thought the staff were very courteous and that housekeeping did a great job. The location on Robson St. put us in the middle of most activities in downtown Vancouver.

    Good Value, terrible service

    from

    My fiancee and I decided to stay here after visiting a number of different hotels in the area. Though the desk attendant informed us our room was ready, we had no less than three interruptions upon our arrival from cleaning staff--actually entering the room without notice or knocking, leading to some embarassment upon both parties. When we complained, we were assured it would not happen again. However, despite the "Do Not Disturb" sign, the cleaning service entered the room at approximately 6 am. When we complained again, the management told us that there was nothing they could do, and that the maids story did not correspond with ours, and we were in fact, lying. Though our view was beautiful and the rooms nicely appointed, I would not recommend staying here simply because the personnel do not know the value of customer service and the motto "The customer is always right."

    These people really know what they are doing! Disembarkation was smooth! We were off the ship and to the hotel by 10 am. Vancouver with all its buildings was a shock after the past week of nature. But Vancouver is a pretty cool city, granted we are staying in one of the nicer areas. Got to the hotel and stowed our luggage. Then off to Dim Sum at …
