Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel
Travel Blogs from Vancouver
We arranged to arrive a bit early in Vancouver two days ahead of our sailing. We had heard wonderful things about this city and did not want to rush the experience. Thanks to some hotel frequent sleeper points, we were able to stay at a wonderful hotel for free which included a fantastic breakfast. This amazing city is easily walkable to waterside …
Sometimes you just need to go home to get a bearing on where you really are :)
Okay, so we are both exhausted and ready for bed...but at the prompting of Joey's sister we will break the suspense. We hope we haven't built it up too much, but... We went whale watching! We got within 30 yards of WILD Orcas. Basically our guide told us that we got as close as he has ever been on a tour in his 4 years!!! This was an incredibly …
We are both so sad to leave this wonderful place. We had the wedding of our dreams and the best honeymoon we could have asked for to follow it. It will be really hard to pack it up today. But we must; so we are getting ready to head out to the airport. We arrive back in ATL at 10:28 tonight and then its back to life a usual. Well, we are married …
I think we've been doing this whole thing wrong. Apparently we should have created just one blog and then entry after entry, etc. But oh well, its been working okay and we haven't had any complaints from the peanut gallery. :-) Today we will be short with you (sore-y; yes that's sorry spelled how they say it here) b/c we are headed out early for …

Historical Traveler Reviews Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel
Me and my girlfriend found this hotel last minute for our trip to Vancouver. They offered us an awsome deal for five nights and we went ahead and took it without setting any high expectations. When we got there we were surprised to see how great this hotel was. We were placed in a room on the 27th floor with view of the city, harbor, and Stanley Park. The concierge service took care of all our arrangements throughout the week and clued us in on some of the best places to eat.
THe Mariot Pinacle is just a few blocks off Robson Street. Parking was good in the enclosed garage. THe hotel was modern and overall nice. We stayed around a week and enjoyed the hotel...the only problems we encountered were during the transition from a Delta hotel to a Marriot. I would probably just chalk up some problems to the changeover. The hotel was otherwise very nice. It is a short walk to Robson St. fine if you are younger, but I would guess a bit much for older people. I stayed with my kids and love walking Vancouver. Robson St. is a lot of fun. great restautants and clubs. Its a young vibrant city and I have spent a lot of time there. If you have a car you save time and can get to all of the attractions. You could cab it around town if you wanted to, or just walk. I would say that this hotel has an indoor pool and sauna/hot tub and nice workout area which I very much enjoyed. As long as the change over is completed I would think it would be a nice place to stay....
Stay at this hotel, you'll like it....
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently, had two rooms and found the hotel delightful. As bite away from Robson street, but it is worth it. The discounted offered by this hotel makes this an excellent value.
Great fitness facilities, check out the changing/shower room at the pool, the best in any hotel. The staff is excellent, friendly and helpful. They never fail in greeting you anytime of the day or night.
Their smiles relaxes you instantly. Beautiful hotel, an excellent value, friendly staff, in a beautiful city, what more can one ask for.
Perfect in everyway!
Stayed at the Delta Pinnacle for two weeks the end of May. Had a corner room with king bed on the 29th Fl with a view of the harbour and Stanley Park. Lovely room with separate shower and tub which was great.
Service and personnel was outstanding. Their parking garage was nice since we had a rental car, and the daily rate was typical for the area with in/out privileges. They had a wonderful workout area and we took advantage of the pool, steamroom and sauna expecially nice after a day of sightseeing. Fantastic location, just one short blook from the harbour that made it nice for evening walks along the pier or exploring other areas of downtown. Would stay there again without question.
My fiancee and I stayed there in Aug of 2002. Service was better than expected. 1st class. One morning I went running. When I came back, the bellhop greeted me and took out a bottled water for me from his jacket pocket. Need I say more!
A Great Honeymoon Hotel!
We honeymooned in British Columbia and were very impressed with the Pinnacle. We found a great rate online which included use of their private lounge the 'Signature Club'. The staff were VERY friendly and helpful, and special care was taken at all times to ensure our comfort. After being burned by the Fairmont New Orleans (warning!!!check out our review there), we were ready for some real hospitality. We got exactly what we paid for at the Pinnacle. The room was beautiful and very well-appointed. A great place to stay.
I stayed here over New Years 2003 and I have to say after staying at my fair share of hotels in the Vancouver area, this is by far my best stay in Vancouver. Every attention to detail was meticulously taken care of and I was made to feel like I was the most important guest there even though there were plenty of guests and I was staying there at a very discounted rate. Everyone was extremely helpful. I wanted to order specific flowers for my girlfriend on new years eve (not knowing that businesses in Vancouver close early on new years eve) and the concierge called EVERY florist in the greater vancovuer area and fraser valley trying to find one that was open (unfortunately, not for lack of trying, she did not succeed). The room was a little larger than average and had a partial harbor view. There was complimentary just about everything there in the room and it was equipped with all the modern conveniences that you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Room service was extremely prompt and brought our breakfast order 10 minutes before they said they would. They also did much more than the standard 'set the tray on the table and leave' bit you get at most places. They completely uncovered and placed our individual breakfasts and served us before leaving with all the extra dishes. By far the best service I have experienced at a hotel, to include the ritz carlton. I recommend this hotel to anyone who asks where to stay in Vancouver.
I had the pleasure of staying at the Delta Pinnacle on my return journey to Australia and I was not disappointed. All through my trip in Canada I was impressed with the high level of customer service and I was not let down with the Delta Pinnacle. From the moment I arrived all the staff were equally happy and always presented themselves with a big and warm smile. Room service was of a high quality and served with that big Canadian smile. When I asked for my bags to be picked up I had hardly put the phone down and there was a knock on the door, great service. Unfortunately I did not have a room on the upper floors but the view over the harbour to North Vancouver was impressive, as was the room itself. Comments by other reviewers on the small size of the room I felt are unjustified, I generally think the room is big enough with a comfortable bed and living space. I recommend this hotel for not only its position, but mainly for the friendly staff and the ultra-modern decor. Well worth a visit.
The Pinnacle was incredible. They were very helpful, and when we had a problem (such as us arriving at 6 in the morning, instead of 2 pm) They accomodated us, and put us into a room right away, even though ours wasn't ready. The staff was incredible, and i reccommend the Signature Club rooms to everyone. The food was excellent, the service was great, and it was in a wonderful location in downtown Vancouver. What a wonderful experience!
A Fancy Harborside Hotel
I stayed 2 nights at the Delta Pinnacle on this October. I did little web surfing and found premier room(harbor view) for the price of standard room.
Very friendly staffs, and I liked nice view from my room(harbor and mountain). But the room was so small for 4-stars hotel. I recommend Empire Landmark hotel if you want unobstructed 180 degree view. Also, they offer more spacious room for less money. But keep in mind that they don't have in-room dining service and valet parking.
