I stayed here a week and found this to be a very good basic hotel. It's an older hotel in a great location at Davie/Denman Streets, right across from English Bay. The rooms are clean, the bed soft but comfortable, and the wifi was excellent so I was able to teach on line, no problem. The security is good, you...

First of all the hotel is in a great location, right down by English Bay. It looks dated, because it is, (from the outside) yet inside it is modern and very comfortable. The service was excellent, for example upon checking in I had a room that had a rather noisy vent of some kind just outside the window, and I...

Came here for family vacation for 4 people. The rooms are large with two sinks, a microwave, and two mini-fridges in the room. While would have been better with a sort-of view, it was a good room. We came in the low season in January so very quiet. Also if you are in town January/February, check out Vancouver Dine Out...

Hello Thank You for the review of the property and I do apologize you were unhappy with your stay and the noise on Saturday nights from the pub. We have recently upgraded the sound system to provide a more balanced room sound to prevent noise travelling to the rooms. Saturdays nights do run a little later than other nights and...

We were here in late September prior to a Pacific Coastal cruise. The location downtown was excellent and gave us easy access to restaurants and tourists sites. We could walk to the nearby water to watch sunsets with the locals and there was a Hop on Hop Off bus stop right there. We were a short cab drive away from...

This hotel is not your luxury hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. The location is excellent. Buses go by frequently right outside the door. Many restaurants, coffee shops, good grocery stores, pharmacy are all near by. The lounge downstairs is great and the few meals we had there were wonderful. My one complaint is there is no hot tub...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
