    Ok, but needs to hire more breakfast waiters


    No complaints about the room or lobby bar service. However, it really, really needs to sort out its breakfast service - queues formed regularly at the door whilst plates mounted up on uncleared tables. Contrast this with the impeccable service at the Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle directly opposite - I did!

    Great hotel!!


    Stayed at this hotel last week during a training course I attended. All the staff were exceptional, the resturant/bar/lounge was good.

    I found the view to be the best. The entire wall was a sliding window that could opened over looking the harbour. Every morning I woke up early, put coffee on, sat at the window and watched the ships coming and the seaplanes depart. There is new construction which will likely wreck this view in the next year. Rooms vere VERY clean, bathrooms had nice heated floors, the beds were great..

    Would recommend highly to anyone!

    Great, but view for a limited period only!


    Stayed here twice now during 2004. Good size rooms, great staff and food. Much better than more expensive Four Seasons!

    Be aware, a new tower block is going up in front of the Hotel, which will block the excellent view of the Harbour. Probably be finished by the end of 04

    Loved it!


    Just returned from Canada yesterday after travelling coast-to-coast ending in Vancouver.

    The hotel was brilliant as were the staff. The Lounge bar was great - looking out over the water with seaplanes taking off & landing. The food in this bar was really good value and we were happy to eat lunch and enjoy the view. (I'm not so sure that will apply when the building work in front of the hotel is completed.)

    The hotel was ideally placed to see Vancouver.

    Comfortable hotel


    My wife and I stayed at Renaissance in a trip we took to Vancouver in june of 2003. We found it to be a very comfortable hotel with all we were looking for on our trip to this city. If you don't mind walking a bit, you can get to many of the cities local attractions within a reasonable time. We especially liked the hotels convenience to the walkway along the waterfront and to Stanley Park. The rooms were comfortable and we had a water view which was very pleasant. All in all, if in Vancouver a nice place to stay

    Very pleasant hotel with exceptional staff


    Had 4 nights at this hotel. Although we got a bargain rate, the staff didn't hesitate to upgrade our room to full harbour view, balcony and 16th floor. Thankfully this is above a building development which, when complete, may spoil the view from some of the northern rooms.

    The staff were really exceptional. Very much more human than in some Vancouver hotels. Parking is gated and at $19 CAD cheaper and more secure than street or public parking. High speed internet cost an additional $10 plus taxes, although it is notably slower than other 'high speed' internet, clocking about 500mb/s.

    The room was a reasonable size although a bit dated in decor. I think I might have been offered a more modern room when I checked in but opted for this one on a higher floor. The facilities are pretty standard.

    Staff told us we could use the mini bar fridge for cooling our young daughter's drinks.

    This hotel is in a prime location and the staff will make sure that you have a great stay. If you get a good rate on a booking site, don't mess around with anywhere else for downtown Vancouver

    Very Nice Hotel


    I stayed here in September 2003 with my husband during a conference that I was attending. This was one of the hotels I could book through the organisers and to be honest I was very pleased with my choice. We were given a very spacious room on the 14th floor facing North Vancouver. The view was breathtaking. Room was very big and very comfortable. Location was great - walking distance to all the popular attractions. ALL in all it is a fantastic place to stay.

    Fantastic Views


    Very comfortable room. Good location - short walk from Gas Town and Stanley Park. Fantastic views of the harbour.

    Great location


    Had a girls weekend in Vancouver. Great Service Superb location room a bit cramped for four people but that was part of the fun.

    Fantastic views


    This is a fantastic hotel. The service was wonderful, the rooms are nice and have INCREDIBLE views of the harbor! Parking is reasonable at $17 Canadian so it's actually not too bad for parking right downtown in the heart of Vancouver. We had walking access to everything from this hotel and it was also convenient to drive to other exciting locations.

    So, if you're headed to Vancouver, this is a great place to rest, conduct business or vacation with the family. Would absolutely stay here again.

    ... suspension bridge is that it's free; the Capilano suspension bridge costs $30-40 to cross. We lucked out and got some time alone on the bridge with just the three of us. It allowed us to snap some great photos. It's not frightening walking across the bridge but it's definitely a long way down if you were to decide to jump! We did a power trip through the park and headed back into the city as there was lots to see and only one day to see it.

The sun was just high enough to enjoy the treetop adventure - platforms 30 metres high linked by a series of suspension bridges across coastal rainforest 1,300 year old Douglas fir trees. Leaving Vancouver at 7 pm along the Sea to Sky highway, the drive was enjoyable and the views spectacular with the sun slowly setting. We arrived at the First Tracks Lodge in Whistler at 8.30 ...

    We had a wonderfully relaxed morning; Girls on i-pads, Jen and Julie sleeping in, Matt doing the washing. Must say (Jen insists) Jen also did admin!

    Julie and Jen returned the car and had a lovely walk back from town whilst Matt enjoyed checking out the coffee shops Vancouver has to offer with the girls.

We had a chilled night and I lasted until about 7pm before falling asleep. Wild. We decided that Monday and Tuesday were going to be our bus tour days. We have done the bus tour in Milan and New York and found it is a great way to get about and learn random stories about the city. We ...
