We crossed the international time line while in the air, so although it was now 3rd May in Perth and we had traveled for many hours, with Canadian time, it was still Monday morning 2nd May when we arrived in Canada! Breakfast was served an hour or so before our scheduled arrival in Vancouver at 11am. We had to choose between Fried seafood rice, …
After 19 hours of uneventful travel we touched down in Vancouver 20 minutes ahead of schedule thanks to a tail wind all the way from Auckland. We both managed to catch some sleep on the plane and somehow our bodyclocks seemed to have reset themselves to Vancouver time. Canadian Customs and immigration was straightforward.
We decided to …
We slept in, and then met up to begin a walking tour of the city. We stopped at Tim Horton's for a bite to eat then continued down to the harbor to catch an "Aquabus" to Granville Island.
The short ride on the boat docked by their Public Market, which was a conglomeration of food, flower and gift stalls which we enjoyed visiting. …
Today we decided to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge, via a free tour bus, which was advertised as a must see in Vancouver.
This bridge is a 450 foot span of wooden planks teetering 230 feet above the Capilano River. The bridge was a challenge for some of us to walk over, but we all made it over and back without any mishaps.
Ordered my cab to pick me up from home, but the tosser turned up half an hour late. Still should have had enough time to get to LHR, except, the driver didn't know how to get there, and his sat nav took him through the center of London. Even with the sat nav, he kept taking wrong turns. Time was getting on, so I decided the only way I was going to …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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
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.
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
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
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+++++
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.
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.
My husband and I went to Vancouver for our honeymoon, and stayed at the Blue Horizon. (recommended to us by travel agent)
Blue horizon hotel
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
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.
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."
