Landis Hotel & Suites
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
Walked miles today, down to Canada Place to where the cruise liners dock. Watched the grog and food getting loaded. Walked to Gas Town and it was an interesting area lots of tourist and prices reflect that, didn't eat down there came back to a shopping mall and we had fresh juice and New Yorker Chips and Nachos for all of us for $29. After we got …
Booked a SUV on line through Rentals.com spent all night worrying about if it would be ok. Had to jump on a Bus down to Seattle to pick up car. Left Vancouver at 9:30 am Bus broke down 5 mins after we got on it lol. Took to 4:15 to get down to SEATAC airport to pick car up. Amazing trip and very stinky, Japanese on the bus would put the toilet seat …
... as he first dropped his harness, then his crampons. Bill and I couldn't watch as he performed hand stands and took photos, all from the very top of the pole. Then he fell... Or rather slid down a line, as he'd hidden his safety harness. The show was full of banter yet great skill: log sawing, carving, axe throwing and log spinning. The raptor show was equally impressive: a young hawk, turkey vulture, ...

After arriving at 4:45 to catch the free shuttle back to town, and finding out that the "free shuttle" stopped running at 4:30 (oops), we caught a city bus and got off at the Capilano Mall to begin a search for a camera charger (remember the one ...
... the mist and fog amongst the trees and waterfall was actually quite romantic and mysterious. We enjoyed the waterfall in almost complete privacy and after some time we did manage to get a clear view of the top of the waterfall when the cloud cleared temporarily. Within 15 minutes we were back on the road and heading north. We had planned to stop at the Stawamus Chief, the second largest granite monolith in the world, however there were no short walks around this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Landis Hotel & Suites Vancouver
We stayed here with our two daughters 19 and 21 for 5 nights May 2005. These were the last 5 nights of an eighteen night vacation. It was wonderful to have the 2 full bedrooms, kitchen , livingroom and the quaint "sunroom/diningroom". Although the hallway carpets were a little dirty everything else was spotless. we found the staff extremly friendly and helpful with our questions and requests.
My husband and I stayed at the Landis Hotel from early December 2004 until beginning of February 2005. We usually go to Arizona for that time, but due to an illness, my husband had to stay in Canada this year. We were so fortunate to find the Landis Hotel for our prolonged stay as we had a beautifu suite on the 15th floor with a gorgeous view of the city and of False Creek. This was a two bedroom suite so we could accommodate our children and grandchildren periodically, as we can only see them occasionally. The daily service of the housekeeping staff was the best and our housekeeper always went out of her way to meet our needs (which she did not need to do). Our suite was meticulously clean and new towels and any supplies that we requested were provided daily.
I have been on the road for work for the past 16 months, and 6 months of that time has been spent on and off in Vancouver. I think I was VERY lucky to find the Landis. Eating, watching TV etc from the end of the bed or a chair gets pretty boring after a while. This is where the Landis changes that, two bedrooms, kitchen, livingroon, eating area, 3 TV's, and a great rate. You can cook or go out, free continental breakfast everyday, takes the "hotel" out of on the road hotel living. The rooms are clean and serviced daily, staff have been very helpfull and accommodating, and always been very friendly during my stays. I have recommended the Landis to others from my company who in turn have also stayed at the Landis. They all enjoyed themselves, and like the suites so they continue to stay at the Landis when in Vancouver.
Best Value for a Goodnight Stay
We stayed at the Landis Hotel for a week during the week of the Sun Run. With our experience travelling a lot to different places in the US, Canada and Europe, I should say this hotel has the best value for the rooms they have -generous size. The suite we stayed was even too big for my partner & I. We felt like walking in your own home. This hotel would also suit families with children. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends, family & collegues who are planning to visit Vancouver, BC this year.
I have been staying at the Landis for about seven years and have seen the property decline from a clean and well kept property to a slipshod and dirty facility with a staff who becomes immediately defensive and sometimes threatening.
March 6th to march 14th and march 17th to march 20th.
I have just returned fom Vancouver today and I would advise anyone to stay at the landis. Very nice very clean suites lots of room for 4 adults.
excelent breakfast, nice staff and Managers.
give it a go.
4 very happy people , lancashire England.
I must say, this was the best value for me and my group of friends that I could find. Nine of us stayed in two rooms on the 11th floor, in one deluxe and one executive suite, each with two bedrooms.
I rated this hotel neutral, but it is somewhere above that, but not quite "above average", if you know what I mean! We have stayed at the Landis Suites twice in the last year. The rooms are a great size, with two bedrooms which are well separated, a living room and kitchen. Some rooms are better than others as far as noise goes (higher up is better)The central location is a real plus. The decor needs an update- the last time we were there the drapes in our room were frayed and the carpet had some spots. The dishes and glassware in the kitchen were mismatched and the pots looked like someone's old camping set! The rooms are clean and for the price, it's a reasonably good value, particularly for someone travelling with kids. There was a continental breakfast included with the room both times we stayed and this was a plus. We intend to stay here again, but hope they will address the needed cosmetic updates in the rooms.
Super size two bedroom suite with easy access by free shuttle to all downtown locations. Unfortunately not double glazed and in a very noisy part of the city. Super floor to ceiling windows which did not help the noise but overall a very nice hotel with super friendly staff.
Awesome Family Getaway....
Our family has stayed at the Landis Suite Hotel a few times in the last year. Each has been enjoyable, staff are helpful. Can walk to many attractions, free shuttle available (only runs till 5pm, a little early to shut down). The teenagers like the workout room, sharing it with the hotel next door can be confusing. On our first stay, my daughter and a friend were trapped in an elevator for half an hour, they had accidentally entered the wrong hotel..... They consider it a "sweet adventure"....
