Georgian Court Hotel
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
... We had some dinner next door to our hotel & went to bed! Rick was up early the next day to go to Whistler with Dan & David. It's a 2hr drive each way from Vancouver. I didn't really want to go up to the snow, & I'm glad I didn't as it was snowing so much that you couldn't see anything anyway. After a little hiccup with car keys, Shanelle & I went out for lunch & a bit of shopping. It was a horribly wet day & we soon decided to go back ...
... lady at Departure Lounge we were on our way and to hold the plane for us. Our suitcase still hadn't turned up on the carousel it was either wait for the case or run without it and have the suitcase go on the next plane to LA and be without a suitcase till leaving for Sydney tomorrow.
Unfortunately we waited that extra five minutes for our suitcase ran to Customs only to stand in a queue with two Customs Officers on and we only had five minutes ...
... were the same, the location and layout of the buffet were the same, the theatre was the same... Don't get me wrong, it was a fine experience but it was just the same..
They put on a show in the theatre each night. A couple were performances by the singers & dancers of Celebrity, they were ok but the highlight was the aerial display by a couple - it was really amazing! They also had a comedian a couple of nights - who honestly wasn't ...
... We walked along the waterfront and refreshed our memory of this lovely city. Vancouver airport is very passenger friendly and the city is clean and lively too - a great place for a stopover. We are not stopping over, however, as real life is recalling us. Our check- in is at 17.40 for a 20.40 departure, arriving 9 hours later at London Heathrow. At this point, we lose 7 and a half hours of life. Still, I suppose we gained them on the way out, so we shouldn't feel too short ...

Very comfy pillows, generous room and all things women...yoga mat, GHD, Aveda products including bath salts, the latest magazines...all you need for a 'happy wife - happy life' stay really.
The hotel was about a 5 block walk from Robson Street (shopping) and Gastown (trendy restaurants and shopping).

Historical Traveler Reviews Georgian Court Hotel Vancouver
Value and comfort at the Georgian Court
The Georgian Court is an excellent choice for a stay in Vancouver. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the service is both polite and friendly. Parking is reasonable and convenient. We would certainly stay here again!
I recommend the Georgian Court Hotel
The GCH was a good experience for me. A good location right next to the incredible library in Vancouver. The restaurant part of the hotel I highly recommend and is a chance to meet the owner who personally greets all restaurant guests. I would have no hesitation about being a repeat customer and would recommend it to either family or friends.
A good value
I was looking for a good value in Vancouver and I found it in the Georgian Court. There is no view -- except of the BC Place Arena. Plus the concrete factory across the street starts at 7 am with noisy work. But the rooms are very nice. So I would recommend this hotel. The cost ($169CDN) was a real value.
Money well spent
Stayed here three nights early March, 2005. Paid $100 Cdn plus tax per night, using Expedia. Booked a King bed but received two doubles instead. That was the only drawback.
Hotel does not have a fancy lobby nor amenities, although it is associated with a good Swiss-style restaurant and two other more general style restaurants.
This is a clean hotel, looks like recently painted. Room was clean. Double bed was terrific - new mattress, comfortable / luxurious duvet cover, 4 fluffy pillows per bed. Everything is done well - clean, recently reno'd and good service. Friendly staff, who make an effort to say hello.
Location is not the best - but you're only about 5 or 6 small blocks from the hub of retail activity. Very good value, in an absolutely beautiful city.
Loved the Georgian Court Hotel
I stayed at the Georgian Court Hotel last weekend and was very impressed. I chose the hotel because of the location, near the GM Place, and was thrilled. The staff at the Front Desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Having only seen photos on their website, I was very impressed with the large standard guest room. The room was very clean with wonderful bedcoverings and pillows, as well as a comfortable mattress. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of towels. Room service was fast and friendly as our order came to our room in under 30 minutes. We had breakfast at the Bistro in the hotel and throughly enjoyed our meals. I recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again!
Georgian Court Hotel
A charming hotel within walking distance to the ferry stop @ Yaletown, also the skytrain which takes you to Gastown, and you can walk to the Vancouver Art Museum and the beautiful library which is a great source for info about the city. Go see Storyeum which is an underground presentation of the history of Vancouver with great photos and live performances. Granville Island was nice and had a great meal at Bridges restaurant. People were friendly and the weather was decent for November. My only compalint is the taxes in Canada. I will go back in the summer to see the more of the city.
Great rates, good location
A group of us went to Vancouver to attend the Opera last month. This hotel offered a special "opera rate" which was $89.00 Canadian. The hotel had a small lobby but great rooms and REALLY comfortable beds. All the staff were friendly and helpful. There was one restaurant in the hotel, and many places to choose from in the neighborhood, the well-known Yaletown. We took Amtrak from Seattle because we didn't need a car-the hotel was only a 3 minute walk to the Theater. It was also convenient to many other areas. We would definitely stay here again.
Very comfortable hotel
my husband and I spent one night at the georgian court after a cruise down from alaska. staff was super friendly, and there was no problem checking in early.. about 10 a.m.
the room was spacious, (especially after our cabin) beautifully furnished, with a good mattress, fine quality sheets and pillows.. real luxury after the cruise.
location is great for walking, close to chinatown, gas district, and yaletown..
would definitely stay there again.
Very satisified with the Georgian Court
This is a really nice little hotel in a great location. The room was comfortable and very clean, the staff extremely friendly and helpful,and the price was very reasonable. We walked everywhere we needed to go. There were always taxis available at the front entrance for anyone who needed one. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Vancouver.
I have stayed at the Georgian Court hotel twice in the past two years for business.Staff have all been friendly, breakfast is good, rooms are spacious and clean. No complaints.Within walking distance to go to the hockey games. Restaurants are a short walk away, as well as shopping.
