Artsy Granville

A travel blog entry by brett_and_fi

We thought we had exhausted all our sightseeing options on the previous visit, however we quickly realised we hadn't seen Granville Island and were pleasantly surprised to find a unique little island that had enough on it to entertain us for the day. It is home to performing arts, art education, dining, artists' studios and workshops, art galleries …

Vancouver could be Asia

When we arrived in Vancouver, Joe had a cold and it was raining. So although I wanted to do some visiting in Vancouver the day we arrived and then take the ferry to Victoria the next day, we just stayed around the hotel and just went out for meals.

It is a lovely city and I want to go back someday. The highlight of our stay was a large …

Rainy Vancouver

Chris was supposed to go for a run this morning but the typical rainy weather of Vancouver had set in this morning. The best part about the rain here is that it got me out of having to do the Grouse Grind again…too slippery…I really would have hurt myself! It cleared up a little bit before we headed out for the morning. We had initially …

We arrived this morning with surprising ease given our recent airport encounters. The real test will come when we try to fly home in December from Calgary. I'm sure we’ll be there during a major blizzard.



We made the drive to downtown Vancouver as Chris needed to pick up his special narcotics prescription pad. BC is little …

    Good location, needs updating

    We stayed here because a friend recommended it, but it must have been awhile since she stayed. It really needs some updating. It was comfortable and a good location, but I probably wouldn't stay again.

    Hotel is located off Robson and in a good area. However the hotel is a bit dated. The best thing about the hotel is being close to Cloud 9 restaurant which is on the 42nd floor and offers impeccable views.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Empire Landmark Hotel and Conference Center Vancouver

    Appalling!

    from

    We just took a weekend getaway and chose the Landmark, as I've always enjoyed the revolving restaurant when we've been to Vancouver, and the lobby leads you to believe this is a higher-end accommodation. WRONG! I couldn't believe it when we walked into the room which looks like it hasn't been updated in 30 years - the kingsize bed had a duvet that belonged on a queensize, the fit was atrocious! Also, there was only one sheet, which also did not fit. When we mentioned this at the front desk we were informed that yes, they get many complaints about this, but they have no bedding to fit kingsize beds! Add to this only 2 bath towels provided for 2 people, glasses provided without sanitation papers, upside down on dusty glass shelves - unbelievable! When I looked for a notepad and pen to write a complaint note, I realized that not even this was provided! Major disappointment in this "landmark" hotel!

    Awful!

    from

    An awful hotel. Poor facilities and in need of a major refit. Staff unhelpful and dreadfully long queues at check in and check out!

    Excellent location but not worth the hassle. Pay the extra and go elsewhere.

    Emperor

    from

    The hotel was tall with amazing views of this magnificent city.

    Should've Left While We Had The Chance!

    from

    At first glance, the Empire looked "respectable", but then we quickly noticed this is a hotel that has seen it's day, which was apparently a long time ago. The service was horrible! This hotel has hardly any of the normal "full-service hotel" amenities it claims to have. For example, there is no room service, although they haven't bothered to remove the easily removable "Room Service" buttons from the phones.

    Avoid at all costs...stay away

    from

    Was supposed to be a get away weekend...should have been get away from this place weekend. Poor service everywhere in this Hotel. They are so short staffed that you cant get any service and the staff are miserable. No rooms service, no amenities, small TV's, rooms old and in disrepair. Complained to Manager about star rating was told they lost it and that it used to be a nice hotel! False adverstising!One good thing the view from Cloud 9 revolving restaurant, the food is sublime, but the decor is gaudy (dated) and the service is slow and rude.Very dissapointed, they gave me a discount after complaint but will never be back...EVER

    Great value, great views

    from

    I've stayed here more than twenty times, and it's unusually good value for the money. It's over 40 stories tall, and every room has a terrific view and a little balcony. Also the hotel is in a perfect location, on a nice segment of Robson Street, where the business district morphs into an upscale residential neighborhood.

    I wish I have read the reviews before

    from

    A very unpleasant experience. The hotel failed to provide the room that we have reserved. The front desk was unable to offer any solution when we complained. In fact, the person was unhelpful and unfriendly.

    Checked out immediately. We were assured that there would be no charge made on our credit card. But they charged it anyway.

    We have phoned twice trying to correct this error. The manager has never returned our calls.

    If you are reserving your place, think again.

    The Empire Landmark wasn't too bad!

    from

    My boyfriend and I had no problems with the Empire Landmark Hotel in Vancouver. To our surprise, we didn't think it was bad at all. Granted, it's not the Fairmont Waterfront, but for the price we paid, it was a decent hotel! Right in the middle of Robson Street where much action takes place (shopping, restaurants, cafes, etc), the Empire Landmark was a great location. Walking distance to everything including Denman and Davie Streets! We had a nice room with an exceptional view of English Bay. ...and the balcony was an all-time favorite of ours too...just being able to sit out there and enjoy each other's company especially during sunset! We got the package deal that included breakfast for our first day and that wasn't too bad. Spices restaurant downstairs had a pretty good breakfast buffet!We were very hesitant when we were booking reservations, because we just couldn't believe the price we were getting. But it's a good deal. And the customer service was pretty good too!- JV, Washington DC

    Don't stay here

    from

    we were not impressed with this hotel..although the lobby area indicates that this is the place to stay, we found the room were we in was small, cold and the bedding did not fit the bed properly. The bathroom was dated and we promptly checked out the next day and went to a hotel that we had previously stayed in which was top!!

    Jock is the Man!!!

    from

    Whenever I am in Vancouver, I ALWAYS stay at the Landmark Hotel. It is in the heart of all the action, has the best view and the best service around. Especially by one gentleman by the name of Jock. He has an incredible memory of clients, and goes beyond the call of duty when it comes to customer service.

    Tell him, I sent you,
