      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.

In the late afternoon we sailed through the Tracy Arm fjord to the stunning Sawyer glacier, a landscape strongly reminiscent of the fjords of Norway. Once again we stood out on our cabin balcony in awe of the beautiful scenery, freezing to death in the brisk, early evening glacial wind. That evening all four of us had dinner in the fancy Italian restaurant on the ship, ...

We had seen enough, so got the free shuttle back into town and were dropped at Canada Place, a hub of activity at the north of downtown, although the reasons for its popularity were mystifying as there didn't seem to be anything much to do there! We had intended seeing Chinatown, which ...
