Travel Blogs from Vancouver
We got the express shuttle to the airport and flew to Vancouver. Arrived kinda late and had dinner in the food court nearby before going out for a late walk around the harbour. The harbour was really pretty and lots of people were out to enjoy the warm temperatures.
The next morning we
I'm writing this to be honest totally knackered after our 1st day. A mixture of 10 hours flight, 8 hour time differences and a whole new country has taken effect, but rest assured a good sleep tonight and all will be well tomorrow.
We arrived last night with it poring with rain and despite poor attempts by BBC, yahoo & Canada's own weather …
Well farewll to Whistler after nearly three weeks of mountains, snow and skiing. Harry " I found it fun and entertaining and liked it a lot beacuse of all it's ski runs and shops! My biggest challenge was skiing down the Dave Murray down hill black run and my scariest momnet was a mega wipe out in a tree with 4 men on 4 skidoos helping to rescue me …
Returned from the beautiful and wild Tofino on the Pacific Rim to Vancouver ready to fly to the US. Once business was sorted in Vancouver we packed up and took a cab to the airport and caught a 2 hour United Airline plane to San Francisco, California.

Spent most of the morning travelling - including a prop plane trip *eek* Hotel is pretty nice - Le Soleil Hotel - a little boutique style 'homey' adobe.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Soleil Vancouver
Very good hotel at a very good rate
My wife and I stayed there three nights last September and were very pleased. The rooms which are mini suites are very nicely decorated as they are comfortable. The location is absolutely the best. The only down side to our stay was the restaurant, though it was very beautiful and appeared to have a good menu it was always closed. When again in Vancouver it will be Le Soleil.
Good location in downtown Vancouver
Stayed at the hotel for a couple of days in July 2003.Quite a nice hotel with comfortable but small rooms. I was suprised to find that there was no drawers or storage space in the room to put away your clothes, which I regard as a major deficiency. Also, the restaurant is mediocre serving a below average breakfast. Location in downtown Vancouver is excellent.
Just came back from three wonderful days at Le Soleil; my husband and I really loved the great use of the space in their suites; it's more like a junior suite with a very homey feeling. The one unfortunate thing is that the restaurant seems to be going through some transition and dinner there was a terrible experience, which is too bad because the restaurant itself is gorgeous. We ordered "fresh" foie gras and was presented with a canned version of it. Most of the wines on the list were a thing of the past; the service was slow although everyone was very friendly; we were told that they had a new chef and were updating the menu so perhaps this was an isolated case, and we really hope so because a hotel of that caliber deserves an equally good eating establishment. Next time in Vancouver we will certainly stay at Le Soleil because despite the restaurant experience one cannot beat the great location and the wonderful accommodation that they offer, which combines with an excellent price is truly a find.
Le Soleil is a rare find. I hadn't been to Vancouver prior to this trip and had no idea was to expect (although I had high hopes based on the other reviews I had read). A it turns out, I made the perfect choice in picking this hotel. It truly is an elegant boutique hotel and the staff is accomodating and gracious and just downright friendly. Not the artificial friendly, but truly friendly. We were especially impressed with the helpfulness of both concierges - everything from restaurant suggestions to where to go dancing. The guys at the front door were also a lot of fun - take a moment to stop and chat with them.
Perfect except very firm mattresses!
Absolutely first class! Everything you need except a good bed--the hardest mattress I've ever tried to sleep on. We both had trouble sleeping and woke up with backaches each day. A good location--a couple of blocks from Robson Street. We had two TVs, a separate sitting area, coffee maker and electric tea pot, robes, etc. Valet parking is the only "safe" choice and is rather expensive.
Friendly and well located
The hotel is well located and I found the staff unrelentingly helpful.
Four of us shared a suite, which made it a little cramped, but our stay was short. The hotel was beautifully appointed. The concierge recommended a restaurant, made reservations for us and even ordered a complimentary appetizer for us to celebrate a special occasion. Highly recommended.
Classic Elegance at a terrific price
We have never stayed at a more elegant and friendly boutique hotel.
(After having mentioned that we were celebrating my husband's birthday, we were upgraded to a fabulous end suite at no additional charge.) The bed linens and furniture coverings are those of a wealthy private home.
Our friends had the smaller suite and it was elegant and lovely as well. Bravo to those running the hotel for understanding the desires of the traveling public. Too bad there aren't more of Le Soleil Hotel around the world!
This hotel is a jewel in the city! My fiance surprised me with a trip to Vancouver---and this hotel was PERFECT! The suites are incredibly decorated with Italian fabrics and are richly appointed. I'm a very frequent traveler, and this hotel was absolutely outstanding. I just got back from staying at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas......and I will honestly say that this hotel was just as beautiful, but in a botique-hotel sort of fashion. VERY personal, attentive guest services. I truly felt like a personally invited guest at this hotel--not a number. I can't say enough about the quality experience this hotel offers---from the down duvet and pillows, the outstanding bathroom facilities/shower, and the immaculate room. You can't go wrong with this place----
A Wonderful Hotel
Two friends and I spent 3 days in Vancouver recently. The LeSoleil was perfect with it's Deluxe Suite. 2 Twin beds for the girls and our best guy friend stayed on the sleeper sofa in the outer room. The rooms were luxurious and so comfortable. Service was top notch and requests were handled promptly. A perfect hotel for a long weekend. Highly recommended from one who travels frequently for both business and pleasure.
Nice Little Hotel
We just stayed at Le Soleil for two nights, but we were very satisfied, given the location and price. We had a suite, which was tiny (couldn't get to the door when the sofa bed was open), but exquisitely decorated. Service was excellent. This is not a hotel for a serious business traveller because it has no business center (but they provided a computer in their administrative office for email access).
