Vancouver - the Rainforest city

A travel blog entry by prathiba on Apr 20, 2014

Vancouver is a stunning and beautiful city. We were all referring to it as "Raincouver" - after all it is a rainforest. Met lots of Aussies on the bus trip to Whistler.
Had a magical day at Whistler. Did the Whistler tour & Peak 2 Peak with Landsea Tours. Stopped at Shannon Falls and the Squamish Lil'wat cultural village. Along the way the …

Relaxing (?) in Hawaii then on to Vancouver

... at a hotel looking for some no-shows, picks up our last starter from one of the flash hotels across the main road from us, then heads up the inland Ala Wai road toward the airport, picking up the Nimitz Freeway and finally making up some time.

When we arrive at WestJet, there is a long line outside the check-in building, waiting for the three-hour check-in period to start, so we were in plenty of time. We talk to other passengers while we wait, and one points ...

Stretching out in Vancouver

... the Coral Princess was in port. Then I dragged Craig up the Harbour Building to the Observation Deck – he faced the back of the lift on the way up as he’s just not a lover of heights! The views from the observation deck were amazing – I took lots of photos.

By this time Craig’s sore throat was kicking in big time so we headed back to the hotel stopping off at a pharmacy and picking up some nurofen and also checking to ...

Getting to Know You-remember that song?

... settled in to watch the sun set and lights of Vancouver sparkle over the reflections of the boats in the marina, two bridges and many low-rise condominiums. Quite a vibrant scene! Geoff and Louise caught us up with their five children – their marriages, where they’re living and how many grandkids. Geoff noticed the tattoo on our server’s arm, it was only a series of numbers, but he recognized them as numbers in the Bible. He asked ...

    Beware! crackhoodies everywhere

    from

    i am not a small guy, but i was seriously worried about my safety here.crackheads dressed in dirty hoodies mulling about in front of hotel, selling drugs. staff seemed uninspired. not helpful with the simplest of queries. i had a tiny room with barely enough room to take off my shoes without bumping into beaten up tv cabinet.

    the location is at the edge on downtown away from most conveniences.

    nothing really in the immediate vicinity- except the abovementions crack dealers.

    my trip to vancouver was wonderful, we had beautiful sunny weather but this hotel should not be on your list of places to stay

    Try somewhere else

    from

    This is quite simply the worst hotel I have stayed in for some time,the room was tiny,with very few luxuries.I would estimate the size of the room to be about 4m square, with one corner being dominated by a large and ugly tv unit.

    There was insufficient wardrobe or cupboard space and everything had an air of cheapness.

    There was no in room safe,which given the location of the hotel is a major ommision.

    One bizarre thing was the fact that the bathroom was almost the same size of the bedroom!

    The major downside however is the noise, I dont mean noise from the city which is unavoidable and actually not too bad, but the noise from within the hotel itself. The soundproofing between rooms and corridors is almost non existent and this makes a relaxing stay or indeed a full nights sleep impossible.

    The cleanliness however was excellent, and the staff were friendly.

    The general area that the hotel is located in is not nice,and this is something you should be aware of.

    All in all, only choose this hotel if on a very tight budget,or if you are stuck,otherwise avoid.

    Keep away by all means: this hotel spoiled my vacation!

    from

    the room was auwful: dirty carpets, uncomfortable beds, negligence everywhere' and we did not enjoy being in vancouver beacause we had in mind all day long the knowledge : we have to sleep one more night there(4 nights,,,)

    the good thing abaut this hotel was the check out.....

    Great Staff and Exceptional Service

    from

    The front desk personnel were VERY courteous. I received exceptional services from everyone in the hotel and the restaurant. Very happy with the location and I will be sure to stay again.

    Much better than the reviews I read

    from

    Leave it to me to read reviews after the fact but I booked this hotel because of a special on their own website which was lower than other prices I found.

    Rooms were a bit small but that seems to be the way with most hotels in Vancouver when I travel there. Our room was exceptionally clean but could be a little brighter. In room amenities where more than ample and it is always nice to have a hairdryer and iron and board in room.

    The restaurant was very quaint and made for a quiet breakfast by the fireplace. The lounge was very trendy and seemed to be one of the more popular places for the 30 something crowd.

    The front desk girls were a great help for helping to book dinner reservations and for assisting with some business chores (printing and faxing).

    I also found the Granville Street location to be quite similar to Yonge Street in Toronto or St. Catherine's in Montreal, not at all the scarey place people have made it out to be. There are some adult type stores a couple of blocks down but if one were to so desire, they are completely avoidable. As for needles???? I spent the whole time walking to and from appointments and never once ran across a needle anywhere around the hotel.

    I guess if there were problems, they have taken the complaints to heart and made changes.

    Not the best.

    from

    I would have to say that i agree with what has been put in writting before me, this Hotel is dark and had a smell of dankness about it (I should have ran when I walked into the reception and Wang Chung - Everybody have fun tonight was playing!). The noise on a Saturday night from the Clubs around is quite noticable, although I will say the staff were pleasant enough.

    Bad hotel in bad neighborhood!

    from

    I agree with the earlier negative reviews about the hotel and would like to add that it is in a terrible neighborhood. The majority of businesses in the two blocks around the hotel are adult bookshops and sex toy stores. Signs posted above each stall in the hotels (outdoor!) parking lot read "Warning: Car theives at work here!"

    I did not feel safe walking around this neighborhood alone after dark (which came at 4:30.) This left me stuck, for the better part of the night, inside a room that was so small that the door hit the bed when it was opened.

    Not a hotel for the faint of heart!

    Tiny, tiny, tiny rooms-horrible p.r. and service

    from

    I have never stayed at a more horrible hotel in my life. The rooms are tiny. I mean real tiny, no room to get around. Most of the staff is rude and argumentative. Complaining gets you nowhere. They don't follow up on complaints here. Better to stay at a hostel than this horrible, shabby "hotel".

    Horrid

    from

    where do i start?? we were booked here by our travel agent, this place was the worst i have ever stayed

    noisy, rude staff, small dirty rooms. nothing about this hotel was even remotely welcoming or helpful.

    vancouver was absolutely wonderful but this hotel was the complete opposite

    worst part? there were needles ( several,not just one) in front of hotel, in parking lot, in alley behind hotel where we had to walk to get to our car)

    disgusting

    Clean and quiet

    from

    This hotel is very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is just steps to bar/restaurant hopping and about 3 blocks from the Commodore Ballroom. It is also quiet - and for a hotel on Granville that is a rare find. The standard rooms are on the small side, but it is an older hotel. Try to get rooms on the 3rd or 5th floor if you want easy access to the ice machines.
