Ramada Inn and Suites - Downtown Vancouver
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
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 …
... 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 ...
Very foggy when we woke, confirming our decision to come over last night from Nanaimo. We have lots of time because of this, so we went to the I-Hop next door for breakfast, then back to the room to write this journal so far to this point and now we will take the shuttle to YVR for our 2pm flight to Mexico DF.... so now, here we are on our flight - AC996 - enroute and we have wifi onboard!! how cool is that!! So we took a cpl photos and posting them...
... 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 ...
... 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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Inn and Suites - Downtown Vancouver
Beware! crackhoodies everywhere
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
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.
Keep away by all means: this hotel spoiled my vacation!
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
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.
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.
Not the best.
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!
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
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".
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)
Clean and quiet
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.
