Great Business Hotel
The Delta Suites in Vancouver is a very good hotel. I stayed here in 1998 when it first opened and just recently again in January, 2004. The hotel is just as I remember it, looking as new and up to date as ever.
This is definitely a hotel geared at the business traveller, however, I think it would be fine for leisure as well. The rooms are nice in the fact that they are not your typical "hotel rooms". Lots of modern lights and many floor to ceiling windows which are great. Hotel staff are good too. Just be careful .........if you turn right out the front door of the hotel, within minutes you're in a very bad section of Vancouver. Just.....go left!
My husband and I stayed here in October on vacation and we really liked this hotel. The rooms were clean and well-appointed, and the service was outstanding! Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a great one. Even though the hotel is geared more towards business travelers we found it to be very accomodating for vacationers as well. It was right in the middle of everything, so we never took our car out of the garage- instead we used their complimentary umbrellas and walked everywhere. We had a great time here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to our friends.
Not your best choice
My husband and I stayed at the Delta Vancouver Suites last month for what was a combination business/pleasure trip. While I'll admit that the service was terrific (everyone was very cheerful and accomodating), I find it hard to recommend this hotel to anyone who's not on business.
While the location may be convenient to many office towers downtown, the address on East Hastings puts you right next to one of the seediest areas in North America. The front door to the hotel is locked in the evening--for good reason. The 'suites' themselves are efficient if not small. I was dissapointed to find only a chair and ottoman in the 'lounge' area of the room and therefore couldn't use the room for entertaining friends and family. I would definately recommend the Pacific Palisades instead of this hotel.
Great Choice for Downtown Vancouver
We were very pleased with our small suite, and even more so by the hotel's location. We were in easy walking distance of the main waterfront, Canada Center, Chinatown, and major shopping districts. The restaurant was very nice, and included several organic options; valet parking and very helpful staff were bonsuses. One small negative was mold buildup in the bathroom; on checkout, the staff apologised, and promised to correct the problem before the next guest. Overall, we had a very good experience - a Great Choice for Downtown Vancouver!
Great service but rooms are lacking
We had decided to stay at this hotel on vacation this past month because of the reviews we had read on this website. Although we would agree the service was very good, we were surprised to find the room was not at all what had been reported by others. Both the furniture and the carpeting should be replaced as we found the furniture shabby and the capeting was badly stained as if it hadn't been cleaned in a long time.
Delta Vancouver Suites, the only place to stay!
We here in mid-Oct. 2002 for two days. This was easily the best hotel we stayed at during our 2 week swing through B.C. & Alberta! The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The guest amenities were exceptional yet understated. Dining facilities were off the chart with eclectic meals and excellent service. In fact, this hotel's biggest asset is its people. From their maids to the front desk...very knowledgeable and accomodating! We're heading back late Sept. 2003.
Great Service Hotel in a Heart of Great City
I really like this hotel and the prices are resonable. You get a suite or a pseudo suite (studio apt like) and it's in the middle of the downtown part of Vancouver. I got bumped to the top signature floor and it was nice. They have comp breakfast (rolls,coffee etc) and evening snacks of meat, cheeses, etc. Everything is within walking distance, there are top name stores one block away like Escada, Prada and Versaci and two more blocks the other way is the smokey part of town and Gastown. The service was the best parts of the stay, I would say that I travel often (about 75% of the time) and I felt like I was at home here for a weekend of relaxing while I was working in Seattle. The in-room services are very resonable well. If I come back to Vancouver, which I will since it's such a great city, I will stay here again without a secoond thought.
I was really impressed with the architecture of the building and the modern decor. The suites were very spacious and elegantly decorated. The staff was unbelievably friendly and accomodating. Great location! I recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a place to stay in Vancouver.
Lapped in luxury
Enjoyed my 3 week stay in this spectacular hotel in July '99. Going back to the hotel for a 2 week stay on November 24th, 2002.
Service is phenomenal. Staff is extremly friendly and caring. Highly recommend this property to anyone, particularily business travelers.
What an enjoyable, but all too short, experience. The service was excellent from check-in to check-out. The staff was delightful, from the curb to the Signature Club.
The room was well appointed and we especially enjoyed the fresh fruit. I look forward to visiting this lovely area again.

... I read that the Lynx will have its first commercial space flight in 2016. One of the first passengers being Martin Schröder. Who predicted in ten years all airtravel will go through the reaches of space. And I predict it will even get better. Because man has to explore. It's in our genes. There will always be crazy ones. Well. Security was amusing. The normal stuff but I had to tell twice when they showed me a picture of my suitcases that they were in fact mine. ...
... and Diana. Whilst we were there we were introduced to a lot of people who made us feel so welcome.
Two of these people Gerry and Julie live on Vancouver Island and had asked us to get in touch with them if we made it to British Columbia.
We contacted them and they kindly offered to pick us up from the Ferry we would have to take from Horseshoe Bay to the Island. They also offered to lend us one of their vehicles to have a ...
... We stayed until closing time, although I think the kids would've stayed longer if allowed.
We moved hotel to be closer to the train station for our early departure. This one was in downtown Vancouver and much better than the rest thus far! Unfortunately our room smelled suspiciously strongly of cannabis so they moved us to a bigger room at no extra charge. We wished we had been here all three ...
