      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.

      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 …

We loudly supported Jacob, a sixteen-year-old singing prodigy. We had midnight snacks at the sports bar and ended up in the disco after hours, where I taught the three remaining people the dance for Happy. Needless to say, the next day was a restful ...

      ... about seeing their equipment and how they go about providing a service. Without being too critical here and pointing out the bad, what I liked about BC was the pride they had in their service, they too were also well respected by the community, I also liked the size of the vehicles as you could stand up in them, the equipment was assessable from both inside and outside which is a plus. On the negative side, their equipment was old, the vehicles were filthy, ...

      ... her beauty sleep had been disturbed. By now a huge firetruck had arrived and the men were obviously puzzled that they had come in vain. Same for the paramedics. Too bad. No drama here.

      As I waited at the bus station for the little community shuttle that would bring me to the hostel, a lady walked by, wailing at the tops of her lungs and insulting some imaginary person. Yes. I had enough for the day. Definitely.

      ... soooo cold, I had to put my extra jacket on. My face was the only part of me exposed to the elements, and it was very cold. Once I got to the west side there was no breeze and the sun started to come out. There was a sign warning "icy conditions" and there was ice up the rocky side of the path and lots of broken ice on the bike path (didn't slip or fall off, yeh). Finally returned the bike 4 hours after setting off. Think I might feel it tomorrow ...
