          Great spacious suite (we had a kitchen) very close to Davie Village, Granville Island, city CBD, galleries etc.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Sunset Inn and Suites Vancouver

          Buyer beware


          Most of the suites could use a thorough cleaning -- carpets, curtains and furniture. The air was stale and smelled like the inside of an Indian restaurant 24 hours a day -- difficult to adjust to. Furnishing and appointments not nearly close to that which is advertised on their website.

          I understand the hotel is undergoing renovations. I hope the renovations extend to all the rooms.

          Location is a positive. This hotel is in walking distance to Stanley Park, Robson Street, and the YMCA. Also, easy access to Highway One and major Vancouver thoroughfares.

          I would recommend that one rent a smaller vehicle as parking spaces, although free, are perilously cramped.

          The hotel concierge was very pleasant.

          Unfortunately, I will not be returning.

          Nice staff and a great deal


          My husband and I stayed there last weekend, based partly on the reviews here on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed. Outstanding value for money and an unbeatable location. We walked a few blocks to the Granville Island ferry dock for dinner, and a few blocks in the other direction to the shops on Robson Street. The charming owner proudly showed us one of their renovated rooms, which was beautiful (hope they don't raise their rates too much). We had a suite with views and a full kitchen. Our room (not renovated) was clean and quiet, with nice touches like extra pillows and blankets that you often don't find in fancier hotels. Secured covered parking was a bonus. Would definitely stay there again.

          Pleasant convenient location, good place to stay


          Really nice part of town, quiet and comfortable, freidnly staff, clean, comfy room.

          I would recommend this if you're looking for a reasonable price, unobtrusive, helpful service and a good self-catering setup. It's not 5-star luxury, but it's clean and comfortable and somewhere you could happily spend a couple of weeks. Our balcony had nice views over False Creek (in between the other appartment blocks!).

          There a load of shops and restaurants nearby, even a fabuluous organic grocer. The ferry to Granville Island is 5 mins walk, and a 15-min walk up the road to Robson Street for all that shopping!

          Frequent trolleybus service into downtown too. Very well located in a safe, relaxed area, and just off the main street so it's quiet enough. I do recommend it.

          A pleasant surprise


          Having booked online at a bargain rate, we fully expected a smaller, older room with no view. Happily, we couldn't have been more wrong.

          On check in, we were booked in a smoking room, but the desk clerk quickly moved us to a non-smoking room at the top floor of the hotel.

          Our room was recently renovated, and it overlooked the city and mountains. Even when the hotel filled up for the weekend, we enjoyed peace and privacy.

          The property was conveniently located near Sunset Beach, the ferry to Granville Island, and a host of small restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Small touches like a quirky Vancouver guidebook, Neutrogena products, and plenty of coffee made this a fun and comfortable place to stay.

          Agreed, just ok


          I booked this hotel because my wife and I like balconies. We had a good sized studio with a kitchenette. Our room was in the back so it overlooked the alley that also had plenty of large smelly trash containers. There was no balcony furniture. The balcony did not help much. The rooms in the front are suites and overlook a pleasant street. They do cost a little more.

          For something a little smaller but more upbeat in the same area, try Sandman Suites.

          The area has lots of little restaurants but no really good ones.

          Great location with helpful staff!


          Just got back from Vancouver and the Northwest. The Sunset was a great place to stay- the room was like a small apartment (which it was in another iteration) and the views were spectacular! The staff was terrific- very helpful and always willing to give a tourist a few ideas on where to eat, what to see, etc. The location is in a central location- a bit rough around the edges (street people, etc) but not threatening. The restaurants in easy walking distance are amazing, and the major arteries are alive with people. You might do better elsewhere, but we were very satisfied. Did I mentiion free, enclosed parking?

          Your own Vancouver pied-a-terre


          What`s so wonderful about the Sunset Inn and Suites is that you won`t feel like you`re in a hotel at all. It will seem as if you`re coming home to your own Vancouver apartment on a beautiful tree lined residential street, which is exactly what you`ll be doing. Upon arrival we were immediately impressed with the lovely understated lobby and the personal and helpful attention from the genial staff. They gave us directions to our free parking space at the back of the hotel, then showed us to our spacious apartment on the 17th floor. It was nicely furnished and immaculately maintained, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, large living room and separate bedroom. Everything was modern and stylish, including the bath. The big surprise was the private balcony with a spectacular view of the city and the bay. The location is in the heart of gay Vancouver, but close to wonderful restaurants, shopping and nightlife for all. This is a beautiful and exciting city. Your going to enjoy it all the more, just knowing that you`ll be returning to this relaxing and quiet oasis that really will feel like your very own Vancouver home.

          Sunset Inn: A Comfy Apartment in the West End


          I stayed at the Sunset Inn on Burnaby between Butte & Thurlow for the second time January 9. Although I enjoyed a nice stay at the Delta Pinnacle on my last visit, the price had since doubled since it became a Marriott. And who wants to be confined to one room? The converted apartments are located in a quiet residential area in the West End. It may not be 5-star but if you want plenty of room to spread out, this is your place. I love having a separate living room and kitchen. I'd much rather go to the market and be able to keep things in my own fridge. And what other hotel offers a balcony and free parking?! The staff is very nice and friendly. If you like the idea of apartment living at a reasonable price ($73 US), I would highly recommend the Sunset Inn.

          Great value and location for gays


          Imagine our surprise at the great combination of style and affordability. One block from Davie street, the gay epicenter of Vancouver, the Sunset Inn is a great value. Our suite had a full kitchen and dining area and a large bedroom with a balcony. The room was immaculate and the style modern and classy. The bathroom was not large, but extremely clean and modern. The service was efficient and friendly at the front desk and our Expedia prepaid reservation meant we owed $.50 at checkout for one phone call. Also, we recommend the Oasis cabaret just across the street. It's a fun neighborhood gay club and restaurant will a friendly atmosphere and superb food and drinks.

          Was ok, not great


          This was what I would qualify as an ok place.

          It was within walking distance to a lot of things, restaurants, parks, shops. Nice neighbourhood.

          The building is fine. Clean. The rooms were also average, clean, comfortable. Not really bright. Our room looked towards the alleyway in the back and it was often times very noisy.

          Did not interact much with the staff but they seemed pleasant.

          Left Penticton about 11.15am and drove to Vancouver via the southern route going through Princeton then Hope. Stopped in Hope at the Blue Moose Coffee House (again) for an afternoon snack before continuing on our way. Easily found our hotel in West Vancouver near the heart of downtown Vancouver.

          We headed out to Metropolis at Metrotown shopping centre. This is a short Skytrain ride out of Vancouver near Burnaby. It was a massive place which had a wide array of stores. We were searching for some ski pants for Grace. If we couldn't find them here then there was something wrong. There ended up being something wrong as the pants remained …

          It was a late start to the day after the New Years Eve. Today was the day that Grace and I had decided to tempt fate and do the Polar Bear swim with a few others in English Bay which was not far from our hotel. So we went prepared in the boardies and bikini. I was in the boardies in case you were wondering. We walked down to Sunset Beach and made …

          I woke up to a quiet apartment on Thursday morning as everyone was still sound asleep. After Hamish finally woke up, we went in and jumped on Mum and Dad's bed ready to open my present. We didn't wait for Tom as he was having his usual extra sleep in. I had a little play around with my new GoPro then headed down to get some breaky. After breakfast …

          We are finding it very hard to get up early here. The sun doesn't rise until about 8.10 am. It takes us a while to layer up to brace ourselves for the minus morning temps. We caught the sky train to Broadway (across the bridge near the Olympic Village) where we found a street of outdoor equipment specialists and sports shops. Some people on the …
