Hideous dingy, dirty room. Breakfast was inedible. Don't even bother. The price is great but....the room was REALLY awful. Carpet was dirty and the heater blew handfuls of dust all night long. Location was scary and staff was unhelpful. The place should be knocked down and re-built.

Spent three nights at the Best Western as family member needed to be close to Mount St. Joseph's Hospital. The hotel doesn't stand out from the street - but once inside it is very tastefully decorated, clean and quiet. The free parking is a bit tight in the lower garage of hotel - and would not want to be be...

We stayed here one night during Christmas holidays, on our way to Victoria. The check-in process was smooth. They have underground parking, with gated access. Parking spaces are a bit narrow and not symmetric. We had a minivan and it was a bit challenging to park it in a space. However, they do have limited street parking and also offer...

Stayed over night here before leaving for an Alaskan cruise. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The bedding was wonderful. It was very convenient to the downtown area and restaurants. The breakfast was quite good. The employees were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for 3 nights. We live in Northern BC and had to come down to Van because my son had a few appointments at BC Children's hospital. The hotel gave us a very reasonable medical rate for our stay. The hotel was just a short drive to Children's hospital. The rooms were very clean, comfortable beds. We couldn't hear...

We stayed in a suite, at the front corner of the building. We had an awesome overlook of Vancouver through the giant picture windows. Wonderful room, great employees. A must stay if you want to be close to the public transportation lines and fairly close to the airport.

Thank you for your review of our hotel, I am happy that you were mostly pleased with your stay. The hotel does sit on an oddly shaped lot which means many of our rooms had to be designed with limitations. As for the lighting issues we have switched to a bulb that has a higher Lumens rating, when we switched...

Over a period of about four years, have stayed five times at hotels in Vancouver. Four were at Best Western Uptown; one at another when the BW Uptown was unavailable on my preferred dates. For future visits, I will postpone my trip until the BW Uptown has a vacancy!

Staying in South Main

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
