    Historical Traveler Reviews Carmana Plaza Vancouver

    Excellent choice

    from

    my family and i, a total of 5 people stayed at the carmana on 2 occasions in aug/sept. first stay was only for 1 night and the second stay was for 4 nights. we took a 2 bedroom apartment and it was huge! security was really tight as u can only access the floor u r staying at with the key. the kitchen was very well equipped with utensiles, cutlery and even a dishwasher and oven. the bedrooms were reasonably sized but the apartment had 2 toilets which was great. there as also a proper dining area and the balcony had a great view of robson street at night. the sofa in the hall could also be converted into a double sofa bed. excellent location also. great for those travelling in groups of more than 3 ppl as the price of the 2 bedroom suite is much cheaper than if u were to book 2 rooms in a normal hotel. plus it comes with the kitchen!

    Fantastic Value and Location

    from

    I've been to carmana plaza twice now and both times it's been fantastic. I've usually travelled in a group of four, and getting the 2 bedroom with sofa bed is great value. They offer secure parking which is also very cheap, considering carmana is located in the city centre. You have to be a tad careful about the parking though, as i've hired suv's (yukon and navigator) both times and they only just fit under its height restrictions.

    Overall, this is a fantastic hotel offering a great option for those travelling in a group who want to have a feel of home from home.

    A good choice for space and location

    from

    I spent a week at this hotel whilst touring Canada in September.

    The location is excellent and the hotel is also very secure as the lifts cannot be used without a room key.

    This hotel will not win any awards for design, but the suites were clean, spacious, and comfortable. I've stayed in many apart-hotels and the kitchen was by far the best equipped out of all the apart-hotels I've stayed in. However, in terms of in-room facilities, I would suggest that management consider providing DVD players in the suites.

    I don't have a great deal to say about the service, as this hotel is really for people who want space in the city and are happy to take care of themselves once checked-in.

    If you're arriving in Vancouver in the morning, be warned, it is unlikely that you will be able to check-in before 2pm. And if you have to spend a few hours in Vancouver make sure you take your umbrella and a map with you - for me getting lost in the rain after a long flight whilst waiting for my room was no fun.

    Perfect property for us.

    from

    My husband and I were traveling with my two sisters and had just completed an Alaska Holiday.

    We arrived in Vancouver via cruise line, rented a car and found our way very easily to the Carmana

    Plaza. We were too early to check-in but they allowed us to check luggage until we could get into the room, after 2pm (that was the time I was told.)

    When we came back after 330pm I was told that check-in was not until 400pm and our room was not ready yet. After some discussion they were able to change our accommodations to a different floor. The lobby of the hotel has a musty odor and I was afraid what we would find in our room. When

    we opened the door, I was thrilled! We had a simply beautiful 2 bedroom suite (that is what I had reserved) with full kitchen, living room and dining area, plus two baths. There was even a balcony which we could sit on. The dining facilities allowed us to order in take-out savings us more money. It was a great place with VERY secure parking.

    Convenient Location!

    from

    Just behind Robson St with shops and a supermarket nearby, this is one place with a great location. The suite was cosy and clean, plus we had a nice view of the mountains up in the north. I would recommend it for both business travellers and families!

    Well Located Clean Hotel

    from

    This hotel was well located, only minutes from Robson Street. The room was more like an apartment with a kitchen, small eating area, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. It was very clean and coffee making facilities were available. We were impressed with the excellent views from the rooms large windows, which was the reason we didnt make a fuss that we had been given a room with two single beds instead of a queen. Overall this was a nice hotel.

    Great!

    from

    What an excellent, albeit accidental, stroke of luck! Booked a "2 Bedroom Suite" off the internet, not really knowing what to expect. What we got was a 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony, excellent view, good security (the elevators will take you only to your floor, and only if you have a key), close to Robson street with a very pleasant staff. There were 6 of us total (all adults) and we all agreed we would stay there again, next time "on purpose".

    Overpriced hotel with rude customer service

    from

    When my parents came to visit vancouver is when I had my first and last experience with Carmana Plaza. This is by far one of the worse hotel I've visitted. Frontdesk staff were extremely rude and inefficient. It is very overpriced for a hotel that not many have ever heard of, management and other staffs were saw smoking and spitting on the ground in the back of the hotel.

    Excellent Choice for Vancouver Hotel

    from

    Carmana Plaza is truly a big suprise for us! An excellent "all-suite" hotel with reasonable price. We booked a one bedroom suite through Expedia. We've got a suite on high floor (18th floor) and it's facing the English Bay. The suite is very roomy and the view is great! Just 2 minutes walking distance to Robson Street. Really enjoyed our stay there and glad we had made the right decision.

    Your own condo in downtown Vancouver!

    from

    We had never heard of this place and neither had anyone we knew from Vancouver. We ended up staying here for 10 days and loved it. We had a fully furnished 1 bedroom condo with a balcony, sliding glass windows, and a view for less than a good hotel. Daily "cleanup" maid service is offered, as well as a small business centre near the concierge, but other than that it feels like your own condo. Excellent location right near Robson street but a tall tower so you are high enough up to drown out the street noise. I totally recommend this to anyone who wants to feel a bit more at home in Vancouver.

    First steps in Canada!

    It's only our third day in Canada but what a whirlwind it has been already. We arrived in Vancouver on Wednesday afternoon. The skyscrapers, 7 degree temperature and 4.30pm sunset were a bit of a shock but we all loved the city from the get go. Right from the taxi ride into the city (in an old American black Lincoln), we felt welcome. We watched …

    ... apartments are within easy walking distance to the city. Some are within one block of shopping streets. All very we'll maintained as well. Got more passport photos taken for our Vietnam visas which we discovered were required. A bit of a cash grab really as we pay US dollars to apply then we fill out forms in duplicate with new passport photos then when we arrive in Vietnam we pay yet more US dollars ...

    ... position in the oligarchy, to later be considered a populist and even reformer seems even more incredible considering his "position" within the oligarchy.

    Vancouver Adventures

    A travel blog entry by rossandheather on Sep 06, 2013

    Today we start our adventures in Vancouver, starting with breakfast in the dining room on O'Canada a house. Fresh fruit, juice, gluten free pancakes with maple syrup. Yum!! with bacon. Unusual combination. When in Canada eat as they do in Canada. Then we are off and do as we do in any new city, set off on foot to explore. We find ourselves in 'old' Gastown, with old shop fronts and streets of shops. It's before 10am so most ...
