Historical Traveler Reviews St. Regis Hotel Vancouver
Excellent location and good value. Not to be confused with the St Regis chain of hotels. It is well situated for walking all around Vancouver. Toll-free reservation line, but you might find it cheaper to book on their website. It is a small, but clean. A nice continental breakfast was included in the rate. Book early .....
The hotel is situated in a great place - smack in the city centre. A porter, of sorts, is available on request to help take your baggage to your room. The rooms are fairly spacious and clean. We were there for one night only which was really long enough. The breakfast consisted of a tea or coffee from flasks and a muffin/croissants in a room not much bigger than 20' x 30'. It had a breakfast bar and a television which was a little tight when there were about fifty guests all trying to get the same thing. We didn't bother staying for breakfast as there are plenty of other places around.
We stayed here in early June and had a lovely big room with a bathroom large enough for a party! The only downside was the noise from the road, if you are a light sleeper. However, the complimentary breakfast was great, as was the friendliness of the staff and the overall service. We would definitely stay there again.
Great little hotel
I've been staying at this hotel everytime I visit Vancouver. What more can you ask for? Staff are helpful, breakfast is quite bountiful, and the location is great. Almost got mugged though in front of the hotel but hey, it can happen anywhere.
Good hotel 2 stay at
We stayed at the st regis june 04 for 3 nights & found it a great hotel to stay in vancouver,the room was a good size it was clean, towels & bedding were changed everyday, its in the heart of downtown yet only a 20 min walk to stanley park & english beach,the staff were very friendly & helpfull,it has 2 good bars right next to it jesters(good for sport) & the railway club across the road plus 5 mins walk to gastown & all the clubs & bars on granville st. Overall a good hotel to stay at.
St Regis, not the best looking hotel in the world??? Don't worry, it has TOP service, nice big rooms and is right down town. Can't fault it
Good hotel - bring earplugs
The St. Regis is a nice place to visit - rooms are sizeable, clean and it is right downtown. The only downside is that it is on a main street and if you are staying on a lower floor, it can be noisy. I suggest you bring earplugs...the value is excellent!
Beware the building work
The St Regis Hotel is lovely, perfectly positioned, great value, well staffed, clean and comfortable BUT beware! The building next door is being completely rebuilt and the noise from the work site is very bad early in the morning. I was woken before 7am twice when I would rather hae slept in a little longer than that! Those rooms are at the back of the hotel. I am told those at the front are quieter, but being on a busy road I expect still some are noisy. Breakfast (provided) is also good and I would have given the St Regis glowing figures but for the noise. Vancouver itself is a wonderful place to visit and the St Regis would be an ideal base for a first time tourist (with earplugs).
The main attraction to the St. Regis is its location. The hotel is within walking distance to Gastown, Chinatown and Robson Street. A few blocks away, you can catch the trolley that tours the city for $25 Canadian. There is a Starbucks next door, a 7-11 convenience store and Tim Hortons (24 hour donut/sandwich shop) across the street. My sister, who is a runner, left the hotel and ran to Stanley Park and back. My mother, sister and I stayed two nights here after disembarking from the Coral Princess cruise from Seward, Alaska to Vancouver in mid-August. We took a quick taxi ride from the pier to the hotel. Although we arrived early in the morning, the harried clerk, who was covered up with people checking out and people trying to find somewhere to store their luggage until they could check-in, allowed us the check-in by 10:30 a.m. The hotel has a continental breakfast from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. consisting of a variety of large muffins and coffee and tea. I didnt partake, but it did look very good. The clerks were very helpful and graciously called us cabs and offered several good suggestions on where to go and eat. Things to be aware of: The mini-executive suite we booked was just a standard room with two double beds, a little desk and a coffee pot-no refrigerator or microwave. The décor was ordinary. My mothers room, although it had a sitting area, (she was given an upgraded room they called a suite) did not have a refrigerator or microwave either. The air conditioner in each room was a small window unit. I am not hot-natured so I wasnt too uncomfortable, but I can see it being a problem for others. If we could have opened the windows, it would have been more comfortable. There are two missions nearby so there are street people around. You may be approached for a handout and be aware of watching your belongings. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for someone who is concerned about location, budget, and cleanliness. We were pleased with the hotel for the price we paid. It could be upsetting to someone who isnt used to street people.

... got up from my nap, I thought.....I should get Hailey to the bathroom to do her business.While we had time to waste at the airport (after all, our layover was about 4 hours from the time we arrived in Vancouver) . So I look for the washroom signs... and I keep walking....and walking....and there's just arrow after arrow after arrow, and I walk through this maze trying to remember every corner to get back through a shopping ...
... people were out walking their dogs. It is a favourite spot for locals to do this.We decided to have dinner at The Raven - a traditional pub at Deep Cove. Been here before and certainly an institution in the area with good pub food (famous for their pizza) and the charm of a dated pub that has had a lot of beer spilled on the carpet over decades. Great on a wet winter's night when a warm meal and beer are desired.
Been a good week despite there being no snow!!
... No, actually it was a truck driver trying to deliver strange Korean fruits and vegetables down the alley beside our hotel and he ran into the overhanging marquis which was just below our room.
Somewhat startling but not a severe threat to the safety of the nation.
Up early tomorrow to catch a bus, to connect to the ferry, to get to the island and pick up our car.
Didn't John Candy do this movie? Planes, trains, automobiles, and buses and boats.
... Bay Bike folks were great and had nine of us (Tom and Kristi were no longer with us) decked out in helmets and appropriately sized city hybrid bikes. They even put cages on my pedals upon request and some softer seats for a few of the girls. This cheered me up and we set off into Stanley Park, which we later found out was rated the number one city park in the world. We stopped early and often to check out the ...
... told us what time we had to leave the port by to make flights. We kept looking and finally our bag appeared!
At this point we headed down the hall turned in our customers form, made a quick stop with another CBP gentleman, who asked where we were headed, when we said airport he didn't even check our passports. We kept heading in the same direction as everyone else, but we didn't really know where we were going. We found the right place we think, no one ever ...
