Our Flight was a grueling 12 and a half hours from Auckland, however there was a super highlight for Brian and I in the form of a fairy godmother by the name of Deborah! My work mates will know who I am talking about :) What a surprise to see our trainee vet nurse who happens to be an air hostess in her spare time, honestly every time I thought hmm …
Ok - so, I'm a little behind but here's an update from what I got up to in Vancouver! The weather was terrible in Seattle so I was hoping Vancouver was better! Crossing the boarder took a little time but my visa was processed easier and I was officially in Canada! Vancouver is a beautiful city - not necessary a lot of things to do but a nice place to hang out. I hired a bike for a day and rode around Stanley Park and over to Granville Island for lunch - ...
Wow after about 20 hours on a greyhound bus we made it to Vancouver we left at 8.30 pm the previous night and managed to sleep a bit through the night before being awoken to amazing views coming thought the Rockies After picking up 4 massive bags I managed to persuade fran that is a good idea to walk to our friends Simon and Jen house. We managed it and to celebrate ...

They talked about the changes in Vancouver over the years, what a cosmopolitan place it is and how many different nationalities they come in contact with as people immigrate to Canada. All and all it was really good to see them again.
It’s close to midnight and my head is swimming – I ...

Then it's off to Tiffany for the next three hours to meet the girls with Roxie. There are some very nice purchases made. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel
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!
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Very comfortable room. Good location - short walk from Gas Town and Stanley Park. Fantastic views of the harbour.
Had a girls weekend in Vancouver. Great Service Superb location room a bit cramped for four people but that was part of the fun.
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.
