The fear at the Vancouver PNE fair - from Felicity

We arrived at 10am. For the first time in our whole entire lives we were there an hour before the fair opened. They were doing a special deal. If you bought a ticket now you could be let into the park at 10.30am instead of 11am. When the clock ticked 10.30am, we were let through the gate only to find that we were allowed into the park but not …

Jet lagged! This morning we woke up at 3.30am and were having breakfast at 4am. We were ready to explore Stanley Park, Vancouver's evergreen heart before 9am. A record for the Jones family. The first stop on the way was Robson Street, well known for its shopping.

Today we got moving early in the hope of catching the 9am shuttle to Grouse Mountain. Unfortunately we missed it by a whisker and had to get the 10am one instead. There were 3 cruise ships in and one was another relative of our cruise ship!

We got t Grouse Mountain at 10.25am and got on the first available skyride up to the top of the …

Day in Victoria then ferry back

Had a lazy start to the day today. We ordered room service breakfast. We had egg on toast, a smoothie and juice and tea. They were apologetic for it taking so long - but we were not in a hurry. It was all delicious.

We checked out of the hotel and left our backpacks in storage - just taking Nicola's camera (Olly). We walked to Chinatown …

Stephen has a massage, Nicola does washing

Had a slow start to the day today. Went down to breakfast at 8.30am. Cereal and toast was what we ordered. The waiters know us now and know not to offer coffee. Obviously most people have a bottomless cup of coffee in the morning.

Stephen booked in for a massage as his back and neck were feeling a little dodgy this morning. Camera …

    Upgraded from a studio room to a suite was a lovely surprize as the suite was like a mini apartment complete with kitchen facilities, tV in lounge and bedroom and a balcony with great views on two sides of the city.
    A comfortable hotel and the restaurant was superb with friendly efficient service.
    We had a problem with our coffee machine and the maintenance man arrived within five minutes to replace it. WOW! I call that service!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Century Plaza Hotel and Spa Vancouver

    Shabby and Run Down

    from

    Very disappointing experience -- the hotel looked nothing like the pictures we had seen. Our "studio suite" had two twin beds, and the "full kitchen" consisted of a fridge, oven and plastic, empty cupboards hidden in a closet less than a foot away from one of the beds. Curtains were torn, bathroom had black grout in the bathtub, chairs were rickety. Parking lot was dimly lit and unattended. However, the staff was very accomodating and pleasant when we decided NOT to stay the night and was very helpful overall.

    Relaxing Vacation ...

    from

    I stayed in the honeymoon suite with my husband for a more romantic atmosphere as we were on a getaway vacation. Our room was very nice, well kept and our Housekeeper (Monica) was great. She was very accommodating and made sure our stay was enjoyable and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and happy to give us directions to all the tourist areas. The only reason I did not rate this hotel higher was because we lost our hot water on Sunday and our plans were put on hold till midday when the water was up and running.

    We were giving a discount for the incident which was suitable. As for returning to this hotel chances are we probably would not due to the fact we never like to stay at the same hotel twice.

    A Haven in a busy City

    from

    Have just retuned to the UK from spending a week at the Centuy Plaza Hotel and Spa. I really enjoyed the hotel.The rooms were spacious and very clean..and the views were amazing.The staff were friendly and very helpfull and obliging. I hope to return one day.In the meantime I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the great city of Vancouver.

    Great For One Night, But Thats It.

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Century Plaza for a one night get away.

    Shabby hotel

    from

    We booked two rooms at this hotel in June 2003. The one room had been refurbished but the other one had not. They were both on the same floor. The one room had dirty carpets, windows and mirrors. There was a fold out bed with ripped sheets. We asked for a new room which they did provide, but it was smaller with no balcony. All of the guests we spoke to said they encountered problems. One couple said they had been trapped in a lift for half an hour.The rooms had no air conditioning , there was a fan but it did not keep the room cool.The hotel does have a good location and terrific views from the top floors but I would not go back there.

    The Building Ran Out of Hot Water

    from

    My Wife and I booked a room at the Century Plaza in March of 2003. The room appeared to be nice and the building is in a good location.

    High-Rase With NO Air Conditioning

    from

    I was unlucky enough to stay here during a hot week in Vancouver. Only discovered after I arrived that the hotel rooms have no air conditioning. Also, the window in my room was restricted so it would only open about six inches. Even with a fan, one, six-inch opening was not enough to cool my room down. At night, the outside temp got below 60 degrees, but my room remain well into the 80's. Front desk said changing rooms would probably not help. Unless you really like heat, avoid this place in the summertime!

    Too Hot at the Century

    from

    No Air Conditioning! Don't plan on staying there during the summer.

    Good Value

    from

    My husband, three-year-old and I stayed here for two nights after Christmas. We booked the reservation on Travelocity and the hotel honored the prices. The positives: the hotel is located a few blocks off of busy Robson Street yet it is only a five minute walk if you're hungry or want to shop. It also gave a great view since we stayed in a one-bedroom suite on one of the upper floors. The maids kept the room clean, even washing our dishes, which the hotel loaned us at no charge. The living room was small but having a separate bedroom was worth it. Parking was relatively fine but got crowded later in the evening. The negatives: the front desk employees were not very friendly. They did their jobs adequately--nothing more. The windows of the room were single pane so traffic noises came through easily although we were high up. There's a hospital around the corner which meant ambulance sirens could be heard throughout the night. The bedroom and living room were always at different temperatures as the thermostat did not work too well. For parents out there, my husband and I considered a babysitter but we received two different messages. The front desk told us they use a professional babysitting service; the housekeeper told us one of them babysits, depending on who is available during the day. We chose not to use any babysitter. In the mornings, we brought up breakfast to our room which consisted of bacon, eggs, toast, and hash browns and watered down orange juice. (BTW, room service is available only during the time the restaurant is open.) Overall, the hotel did fine and I'd probably stay there again. However, some improvements (like good customer service) could be made to improve guests' experiences.

    Brilliant!!

    from

    We have stayed at this hotel on each occasion that we have been to Vancouver. Although it may look a little dated on the outside and even on some of the corridors of the landings, the rooms are fantastic. Very spacious, very clean, great views, warm and a kitchen area. The cafe in the lobby does great breakfasts at reasonable prices and friendly staff. I could go on, but need I?!!
