Room was nicely updated, very comfortable beds, which is needed after walking around Vancouver for the day. Location is excellent, close to Stanley Park, across from the beach at English Bay, beautiful views from our balcony on Davis St. Hotel is just far enough away from the center of downtown, but the bus picks you up just outside and a...

Vancouver is a special place and Stanley Park area is great for outdoor adventure, walking, biking, skateboarding... I love all the shops and eateries in the area. But i feel the hotel takes advantage of this. Prices moderately but i used a half bottle of Febreze on the room the day before my sweetheart showed up to get the moldy...

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.
